Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham, has finally addressed the perceived rift between her and colleague, Funke Akindele-Bello.
This comes a couple of days after Iyabo Ojo accused a movie review page of getting paid by Akindele to rubbish Abraham’s latest movie “The Ghost and The Tout”.
In a recent radio chat, the mother of one said she has nothing against Akindele as they are colleagues without any grudges against each other.
“She’s my senior colleague and she’s someone I respect a lot. So I don’t know what people are talking about. You know, a lot of people don’t understand that we are colleagues, not family, so you cannot be talking to all your colleagues,” she said.
“We talk, we follow each other, If I see her I greet her. But a lot of people do not understand that we are working in the same industry and you don’t have to be my friend. Just forget about social media, forget social media.”
