Many times, people fawn over celebrities and would do anything to express their love for them. However, things are not always what they seem and fans are oblivious of how things really are because they do not know these stars personally.
Just recently, a young lady took to social media to call out one of the biggest actresses in the Nigerian film industry, Funke Akindele.
The young lady identified as Cassandra Owolabi aka Khassie recounted how she used to work for the actress and the physical and emotional abuse her members of staff allegedly had to endure.
In a now deleted video that was shared on social media, Khassie said that Akindele’s staff had to endure physical and emotional abuse as the film star had been known to use degrading words on them.
Khassie also said that she once witnessed the film star slap a member of staff the way a mother would hit her child. She also said that working for Akindele was like enslavement because they were ripped of their fundamental human right such as not having freedom of movement, speech or expression.
The young lady also said that the actress continued to do malicious things because she had so much confidence in her fan base and how her fans would never believe she was capable of evil things.
Khassie said that they had to endure so much insults being her staff and how it was disheartening that a figure people look up to can treat others in a dehumanising manner. The young writer said that if the actress had been a white woman, people would have described her as a modern day slave master.
Speaking further, Khassie said that they were barely allowed to rest and that they had to keep writing at every waking moment. She also revealed that they were not allowed to watch TV or have any form of leisure.
Cassandra also said that she wrote five seasons (season 11 to 15) of Funke Akindele’s popular comedy series, Jenifa’s Diaries and that she was not given a single credit for it.
