Toyin Abraham has finally addressed the viral claims that of being in a competition with her senior colleague, Funke Akindele stressing that she doesn’t care who is doing better than her because she only gets better by the day.
Recall that their rivalry became pronounced after Toyin Abraham recently released a sequel to her movie, The Ghost and The Tout for September 10, 2021, and interestingly, Funke Akindele who completely shunned Toyin’s movie poster also fixed the same date, September 10 for the release of her Omo Ghetto the Saga movie on Netflix, an act that divided their fans.
The rivalry got stronger over the weekend when Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of paying a popular movie critic, Cinemapointer to run down Toyin Abraham’s movie. Iyabo Ojo also accused Funke Akindele of being full of jealousy and negativity, adding that The Ghost and The Tout 2 will surpass Funke’s Omo Ghetto: The Saga, stressing that Funke sponsored the negative review against Toyin Abraham’s new movie.
“How much did Funke pay you to write this rubbish? The day she begins to find ways not to talk too bad about her fellow colleagues or discredit their work or personality, that day she will begin to experience inner peace,” Iyabo Ojo fumed.
Reacting to the entire charade, Toyin in an Instagram post said that she doesn’t care who is doing better than her but she is definitely better than she was last year.
She further wrote “Fam! Happy Monday! Trust we all had a good weekend? I had the most fantastic one! Guess what fam! I beat my last opening record!!!
I’m coming o, just chill small, I’ll soon give you the full gist, but reports reaching me is that the performance this weekend is almost 2x or my previous movie (Fate of Alakada)
Anyways, before I go, today is a great day to achieve your own dreams! Never give up and have a blessed day. Don’t forget to go and watch The Ghost and the Tout TOO! Showing across ALL cinemas in Nigeria! #IAmMyOwnCompetition #OpeNiFOluwa”
Before now, there’s been speculations that actors Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham are not friends as they always shun each other on social media during birthdays, wedding anniversaries, premieres and other celebrations. They seem to have an underlying war and a pronounced rivalry for who is the best, despite having made their mark on the silver screen.
