“Funke Akindele’s colleagues are not campaigning for her, especially the female celebrities. Could it be envy or what?”

Not stopping there, Austin added that her colleagues could post about her movies but could not post to campaign for her. He wondered if they thought she was not capable.

In his words:

“Arnold Schwarzenegger was once the governor of California. Y’all think she is not capable? I trust she will do better than all the previous Deputy Governors of Lagos put together.”

If Funke's unclad photos leaked, people would have 'stanned' her

In a subsequent post, Austin Faani complained about the present generation. According to him, if unclad snaps of Funke Akindele had leaked online, people would have rallied around to support her.

He wrote:

“Many people will be ‘stanning and restaning’ her for her leaked n*des. But here she is contesting for a political leadership as high as a Deputy Governor of a state like Lagos. And you can’t understand my position?”

"It’s prevalence mostly in Africa, women don’t support their fellow women when it’s comes to politics, but that’s sad."


"Lmaoo has she been supportive too? How many colleague jobs has she posted too."


"Funke doesn’t support others too , so I don’t blame other celebrities for not supporting her."


"Not campaigning for her doesn’t mean they won’t vote her."


"How many of her friends she dey support??? Lets start from there."


"Before now Funke will never post her colleagues for birthday celebrations but ever since she came out a deputy Governor candidate she is trying to be more supportive to her colleagues so the feeling is mutual, Funke we nor before nor dey like to associate with her colleagues(especially her Yoruba colleagues) if we see truth make we dey talk."


"Like say Funke they support others too…"
