“This Is a Celeb With Substance”: Funke Akindele Models Shoes for Disabled Boy Who Makes Footwear

On an episode of her Funke Inspires series, Nollywood’s Funke Akindele interviewed a disabled shoemaker, Sherif.

According to the filmmaker who made a case for people living with disabilities, they are special, not damaged or broken.

Funke noted that such people have much to give society, and Sherif, a shoemaker, is skilled and passionate about his craft.

Speaking for himself, Sherif noted that he loves to make shoes, and when Funke Akindele reached out to him, he gave her footwear the best in him.

Funke and her younger colleague, Tobi Makinde aka Timini, were spotted rocking footwear from Sherif in the video.

To end the episode, the filmmaker charged Nigerians and her fans to patronize Sherif and lend a helping hand to other disabled people around them.
