‘Forget Social Media, We Talk’ - Toyin Abraham Speaks On Alleged ‘Beef’ With Funke Akindele

‘Forget Social Media, We Talk’ - Toyin Abraham Speaks On Alleged ‘Beef’ With Funke Akindele (Updated: 8 months ago)


Contradicting the widespread belief of some people that there is a ‘silent beef’ borne out of a battle of supremacy between Nollywood heavyweights, Funke Akindele-Bello and Toyin Abraham, the latter has cleared the air, stating that Akindele-Bello is her senior colleague and she looks up to her.

In a radio interview, Abraham noted that Akindele-Bello is one of the few people in the Nigerian movie industry that she looks up to and respects a lot. She stated that whenever she sees her in public, she kneels down to greet her as a sign of respect.

Abraham said, “She is my senior colleague and she is someone I respect a lot; so, I do not know what people are talking about, trust me. She is one of the few people I look up to. Sometimes, people do not understand that we are colleagues and not family. So, you cannot be talking to all your colleagues. We talk, we follow each other.

“If I see her, I will kneel down and say, ‘Aunty Funke se wa okay,’ (meaning Aunty Funke are you okay?). A lot of people do not understand that we are working in the same space; we do not have to be close friends. When we see ourselves we greet each other. Forget social media, trust me.”

The filmmaker is clearing the air shortly after her friend and colleague, Iyabo Ojo, made claims that Akindele-Bello paid a movie review platform to rubbish Abraham’s recent movie, The Ghost and The Tout Too.
