Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A Twitter user ”corrected”’ actress Funke Akindele for her written English in a humorous way.

For Children’s Day, the actress had posted on her handle. She uploaded a picture of herself as a child and said;

’Children are a gift from the LORD;

They are His gift to us.

All of our kids have a happy children’s day!

The ‘English teacher’ believed her caption to be inaccurate and wrote;

‘’@funkeakindele Child is a plural noun. Why is “a” added? Just a courteous correction.”

The reaction from Funke is below.
