Nollywood diva Funke Akindele is in the news again, this time not alone, but together with Chidinma and Chidiebere Aneke, popularly known as The Aneke Twins.
The trio was among the delegation of the Actors Guild of Nigeria members that paid a courtesy visit to President Goodluck Jonathan at Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja, on February 18, 2014, Tuesday.
As you may note, the twins in white contrast nicely with Funke Akindele in black.

In her speech, the President of the AGN, Ibinabo Fiberesima, has made a call for the sack of those at the helm of affairs of the Nigeria Film Corporation and National Film and Video Censors Board.
Fiberesima urged President Jonathan to review their appointments and employ those with passion for the job to instil purposeful leadership in the film industry.
She said that those who have been appointed to run those agencies have shown lack of capacity to put the industry on the path of growth, especially in this transformational period.
She implored the President to review those appointments and appoint administrators with passion, zeal and total dedication to the development of the film Industry.
She also said that Nollywood was in dire need of a modern, responsive legal environment for it to continue to thrive and remain relevant to this administration’s transformation agenda.
In his response, President Jonathan promised to look at the requests put forward by the guild  for the donation of a piece of land, stating that the land was guaranteed, but that he would meet with the FCT Minister to help them build a secretariat.
Noting that actors nationwide have touched the lives of Nigerians even to the grassroots, the President said that Nollywood was the tool that would be used to redefine Africa.
The Information Minister, Labaran Maku, promised that their request that needed executive assent would be presented to the Federal Executive Council next week.
The Culture and Tourism Minister, Edem Duke, also urged the guild to sustain the positive value of the country, as well as the unity of the country in every story they tell.
