Popular actresses Funke Akindele Bello and Toyin Abraham are no doubt the Lord’s work when it comes to comical movies in the Nigerian film industry.
Some weeks ago, Legit TV hit the streets of Lagos in a bid to find out which of the actresses holds the position of the queen of comedy in the country.
The actresses have continued to impress the movie community with their stellar performances whenever they both play roles that require them to serve undiluted comedy.
Akindele showed off her comic side in her 2008 hit comedy-drama movie, Jenifa. The film was modelled after a character who hailed from a remote village and would go the extra mile in levelling up with the big girls when she eventually moved to Lagos.

Movie lovers fell in love with the character so much so that Akindele was moved to create a spinoff in the form of a TV series, which further chronicled the life of Jenifa.
The TV series has successfully run for years with new seasons dropping from time to time.
Similarly, Toyin Abraham showed off just how much comedy easily comes to her after she released her highly successful comedy-drama, Alakada, in 2013.
Fans easily fell in love with the character of Yetunde played by Abraham. Yetunde was a young girl who had no trouble telling outrageous lies just to level up with some of her friends who come from wealthy backgrounds.
Since the release of the movie, Abraham has also released several spinoffs that further tells the story of the Yetunde character. In fact, the movie star is set to release another spinoff of the movie in 2020.
Speaking to a Legit.ng presenter, movie lovers had a hard time crowning the queen of comedy between the two. Many rooted for Akindele while others also submitted that Abraham deserves the crown.
However, one thing that remains evident is the fact that both movie stars are highly talented when it comes to the art of making people laugh.
