Toyin Abraham clears air on alleged war, rivalry with Funke Akindele

Actress and producer, Toyin Abraham has reacted to the alleged ‘silent beef’ between her and Funke Akindele-Bello.

This development follows after actress Iyabo Ojo took a swipe at Funke Akindele for allegedly paying a review platform to discredit a new movie by Toyin Abraham.

Reacting, Abraham in a radio interview stated that Akindele-Bello is one of the few people in the industry she looks up to but their relationship remains cordial as one does not necessarily need to have close bonds with everyone.

Toyin also revealed whenever she sees Funke in public, she kneels down to greet her as a sign of respect, adding social media is attempting to create rancor where there isn’t any.

Abraham said” “She’s my senior colleague and she’s someone I respect a lot so I don’t know what people are talking about. Trust me.

“She’s probably one of the few people I look up to. A lot of times, people don’t understand that we are colleagues, 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 as and say, “Aunty Funke, se wa (are you) okay?

She added: “But the point is, a lot of people don’t understand that, we are working in the same space so you don’t have to be my friend.

“Forget social media, trust me,” the actress said.
