Actress, Toyin Abraham Speaks On Her Alleged Dispute With Funke Akindele
Iyabo Ojo, another Nollywood actress, earlier accused Akindele-Bello of bribing bloggers to criticize Toyin Abraham’s film, which she is currently promoting.
Her charges surfaced following the publication of a poor review of Toyin Abraham’s film on a website.
Iyabo-Ojo responded to the review by accusing Funke Akindele of paying for the unfavorable review in order to harm Toyin’s career.
She went on to suggest that the lead singer of “Jenifa” will only be able to attain inner peace after she stops criticizing her peers’ performance.
When asked about the rumored conflict, Toyin Abraham said she doesn’t have a problem with Akindele and didn’t know where the rumor came from in a radio interview.
“She’s my senior colleague and someone I respect a lot so I don’t know what people are talking about.
“She is one of the few I look up to but you know, sometimes people don’t understand that we are colleagues not family so you can not be talking to all your colleagues.
“We talk, we follow each other, if I see her, I will kneel down and greet her but the point is that a lot of people do not understand that we are working in the same industry and we don’t have to be close friends.
“We are not family, we are only colleagues. Please stop believing anything you see on social media,” she said.
