During an interview, the actress opened up her challenges that almost ruined her shoot on the set of “Battle on Bukka Street”

Funke said something personal happened to her on the day of the movie shoot and she cried heavily before going on set to film the fighting scene with Mercy in the market.

The actress said she almost gave up shooting the market scene, but she had to find the courage to finish after reminding herself that she had gone too far to suddenly quit or give up.

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.”

Sharing the video with motivating words she wrote, “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.

-Never be afraid to make mistakes.

-Never stay down when you fall; make sure you rise and keep moving.

-Never be intimidated!

-Always believe in yourself and give no room for doubt.”
