Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus, has rubbished reports of a rift between her and colleague Funke Akindele-Bello.
Badmus made the clarification via her Instagram page on Friday.
The actress made it clear that she was tired of insinuations that she and Funke were not on good terms.
“Guys, I’m sick and tired of y’all insinuating @funkejenifaakindele and I are fighting for no singular reason. In case y’all don’t know, this woman right here is my ride till the end. I love her from the bottom of my heart and what we share is beyond friendship,” she wrote in the caption.
The actress also revealed that while they do not make joint posts about their friendship on social media, they keep in touch “almost every other day” and were working together on a “bigger picture”
She continued, “We talk every day, we see each other almost every other day. The fact that we don’t post our moments lately doesn’t mean we are fighting!!! We are only saving it for a bigger picture and we need to keep y’all in suspense.
“Lafunky is my blood and flesh, y’all should please stop insinuating! We are good and forever good. Maybe not necessary, but just need to put this out here for clarity! That’s my homegirl here!.”
Badmus and Akindele both gave a stellar performance in the Nollywood classic, Jenifa, released in 2008.
The duo have since then appeared together in other projects such as Omo Ghetto as well as Jenifa’s sequel, Return of Jenifa.
