Why I Cried Shooting ‘Battle On Buka Street’ – Funke Akindele
Nollywood actress and director Funke Akindele has revealed how a personal difficulty almost interfered with filming ‘Battle on Buka Street.’

She said, “The major challenge while shooting Battle on Buka street was the famous market scene, a scene I filmed when I was very sad. It was one of my saddest days on earth, something very personal happened, I broke down heavily and I couldn’t film and I told myself, Funke, challenges will come…
“So I braced up, summoned up courage and filmed the scene, I went and fought Mercy, I came back and I was panting, I was tired because I had cried before but we had to just keep shooting and I had started well and needed to end it well too and it was the last day on set.
“Later we still ran, we still had to shout and I still went ahead to pray with the crew and destroy Bukka Street. So, whatever you do, challenges will come, always pray for strength to keep it on cos it won’t always be easy.”
Captioning the video with motivating words she said, “No matter how much one gets beaten down in life, one must always stay strong because like the quote above says, we become the most vulnerable when we cower in fear.
“When we give in to our sadness, it means we have allowed our weakness to overtake us and nothing can be achieved in life with this type of attitude.
