Referring to her affectionately as his darling Lefty, Deyemi appealed to Funke to use her influence to encourage her fans to watch his new movie.
“To my darling LEFTY,
I know say we fight las las but remember I was there for you when nobody else was there. Abeg help me tell your #1B geng fans to go and watch my dear brother Deyemi’s film.
A heartfelt message from FEMI STONE”.
Recall that Deyemi finally revealed why his characters in movies are always dying.
Throughout his career, the talented actor has starred in more blockbuster movies where his character ends up dying, which left many concluding that he was being type-casted.
Setting the record straight, he said his budget could be the reason as he has a high bill.
Months back, Deyemi had asked for help from his fans to question why Chioma Akpotha’s name dropped him among men to avoid.
The movie star shared a clip from a movie scene where Chioma Akpotha mentioned his name among Yoruba men to avoid. In reaction, Deyemi questioned what he did to the never-aging actress that she name-dropped him.
Recently, Deyemi reflected on his early career days as he paid tribute to veteran, Kunle Bantefa.
Taking to his Instagram page, he shared a photo of himself with the veteran as he recounted how he stepped into the world of filming when he was 8/9 years old.
He revealed that his first time on set was for a family commercial which had veteran actress, Sola Sobowale playing the role of his mother and his brother, Detola Okanlawon playing his brother although he ended up disgracing him with his tears as he couldn’t get his lines.
