Popular actor and politician Yul Edochie has reacted to his colleague Funke Akindele’s decision to delete her campaign pictures from her Instagram page.
Yul congratulated Funke for her bold step as a deputy governorship candidate in the recent Lagos gubernatorial election.
The actor, who expressed concern for Funke, encouraged her, saying she should have kept her campaign pictures which were part of the proof of her achievement.
“No matter what anybody says to you. Don’t be discouraged by those who are laughing at you for not winning. Na childish brain dey worry dem. Cowards will always laugh at the brave ones. That’s the only way they console themselves for being cowards. When they grow up they’ll laugh at themselves for not having the courage to try what you did. There are no failures in life as long as you never give up. It’s either you win or you learn. The person who fails is that person who has not tried at all,” Yul wrote.
