‘Jenifa’, the fictional TV character created by Funke Akindele-Bello has become a gaming feature.
Funke Akindele-Bello in an interactive chat revealed that her team has completed a game, ‘Jenifa Spells,’ which is built around Jenifa’s character.
She said, “I (Jenifa) am out with a game now. We are launching the ‘Jenifa Spells’ which teaches people how to spell. It is an educational game that was developed by our team.”
The 42-year-old wife and mother of two also attributed the creation of the game to the immense support and advice she has gotten from her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz.
