I have been thinking about adding hyping to my career – Actress Funke Akindele

Filmmaker and actor, Funke Akindele Bello jokingly said she would be considering a job as a hypeman.

On her Instagram story on Tuesday, she told her fans that she hoped to add the hypeman duties to her job as an actor because it would help her earn more.

A ‘hypeman’ is a popular term used for a praise singer who works as Masters of Ceremonies at parties and clubs to hype attendees and bring more life to the party through jokes and banters.

She said, “So I heard hypemen now make big money, asides from the club. They come for birthday parties and the rest, and they make a lot of money. So on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, they are busy. Some people even have their birthdays on Wednesdays.

“So I have been thinking about adding hyping to my career. This acting, if you are not behind the camera you won’t make any money. I am willing to learn from established hypemen as a trainee.”
