Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has congratulated Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, on the success of her new film, ‘A Tribe Called Judah’, which grossed N1 billion at the weekend.

Atiku marvelled at Funke’s film industry achievement, which the former number two citizen said stands as a beacon of cultural pride for shattering box office records.

Posting on his X account on Saturday, Atiku said the actress has set a new standard for excellence.

“I extend my heartiest congratulations to @funkeakindele for the phenomenal success of “A Tribe Called Judah”. This film has not only shattered box office records by becoming the first Nigerian movie to earn 1 billion naira in domestic theatres, but it also stands as a beacon of cultural pride and the unyielding spirit of Nollywood.

“A Tribe Called Judah” is not just a film; it is a cultural gem that reflects the vibrancy and resilience of Nigerian cinema.

“As a nation, we are incredibly proud of Funke’s achievements and her role in elevating Nigerian cinema to new heights. Her success is our success, and it inspires a new generation of filmmakers and storytellers in Nigeria and beyond.

“Congratulations, Funke, on this historic milestone. You have set a new standard for excellence, and your work inspires us all,” the former Vice President said.
