It’s been 20 years since Nollywood actress Funlola Aofiyebi-Raimi first appeared in “Violated”.

To celebrate her two decades in the Nigerian movie industry, Aofiyebi-Raimi has launched a talent competition tagged ‘Go Far With Talent’ for aspiring actors.

Instead of throwing a lavish party for colleagues who already enjoy certain industry perks, I choose to celebrate by kick starting a mentoring/give-back initiative for the love of my industry - the same industry that has groomed and produced ME”, she shared on Instagram.
