With 23 years experience as an actress, FAR said, "This year, I’m celebrating my range as an Actress as I urge others to stretch themselves and step out of their comfort zone! In life, challenges shape and strengthen us as individuals. As an actor, challenging roles shape and strengthen your ability to interpret more roles and convey emotions. Be you an up-coming, established or seasoned actor, DO NOT allow your self to be typecast. You can actually politely decline till something different/more challenging comes along."

The TATU actress said, "I like to say I’ve been acting all my life but paid to do so since 1996. That’s practically 23 years!! You'd agree that my work profile would not be memorable or interesting to fans if I’d been playing the same role in each project I partake in."

Funlola became a household name after starring in Ralph Nwadike and Tunji Bamishigbin's soap opera, 'Palace' where she played the role of Eniola Baker, the smart daughter of a billionaire.
