- Nollywood actress and filmmaker, Toyin Abraham, has finally addressed the perceived beef between herself and colleague, Funke Akindele
- According to the mother of one, they do not have a problem with each other and are simply colleagues who aren't close
- This comes a couple of days after Iyabo Ojo accused a movie review page of getting paid by Akindele to rubbish Abraham's new movie, The Ghost and The Tout Too
It appears all is smooth sailing between Nollywood stars, Toyin Abraham and Funke Akindele.
Abraham recently granted an interview in which she was asked about the rumoured beef between herself and her senior colleague, Akindele.
I respect Akindele a lot
Speaking on the issue, Abraham debunked the rumours, urging people to disregard the things they hear on social media.

According to her, while she respects Akindele as a senior colleague, they are not necessarily friends even though she greets her (Akindele) whenever they meet.
In her words:
"She's my senior colleague and someone I respect a lot and one of the few I look up to so I don't know what people are talking about, trust me. But sometimes, 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 (online). A lot of people don't understand that because we work in the same place, we have to be friends. When I see her, I greet her. Trust me, forget social media."

The video which has since gone viral sparked reactions online, many of whom dragged another actress Iyabo Ojo following her recent attack on Akindele.

Iyabo Ojo calls out Funke Akindele
According to Iyabo Ojo, Akindele paid a movie critic blog, Cinema Pointer, to tarnish Toyin Abraham’s new movie while elevating hers.
Cinema Pointer had given a caustic review of Abraham’s Ghost and the Tout Too movie, claiming that it wasn’t a film meant to be seen by intelligent people.
