Popular Nollywood actress, producer and mother of two, Funke Akindele Bello has taken to social media to brag about her person.
According to the Yoruba born talented script interpreter, she is a hard worker, original and a perfectionist.
She took to her Instagram story to make these known via hash tags.
See the story below…
This is coming after she was accused of being wicked by a former staff. One of her former staff, Cassandra Owolabi took to social media to accuse her of being an emotional, physical and mental abuser.
Cassandra accused the actress of physical, emotional and financial abuse which she claimed to have suffered while working with her.
Sharing her story, she wondered how she managed to ensure it all during her stay with the actress.
“FINALLY FOUND THE STRENGTH TO SPEAK UP AGAIN
“A little update: About a month ago, I posted a lengthy video of my experience working with Funke Akindele. But the video was quickly brought down as a bid to shut me up. Naturally as a content creator, my instinct was to make another one right away but I couldn’t bring myself to it due to the fact that I touched on a really sensitive topic (depression) and some experiences I passed through while working for her which was like opening old wounds and I needed time to heal from that.
“I am indeed happy and relieved that I finally got to make another video in which I touched on a few things because truthfully, even if I was given a day I would still not be able to cover all the ills not just me but her staff face daily.
“The experience has indeed taught me that not all that glitters is gold, literally! Looking back I just wondered how I endured so much when we were deprived of so many things. For instance, we couldn’t watch TV (literally, the TV in our lodge was taken away weeks after we resumed) and she mustn’t walk in on you watching anything on your laptop (can’t tell you how many times she randomly sent people to come check if we were sleeping or doing anything asides writing). I mean, how do you expect your writers to be 100% productive when you don’t allow them some leisure time? It didn’t take me long to develop bloodshot eyes because there were daysssssssssss when we’d write all through the night, no sleep. We worked under DURESS AND FEAR. It is always about the script, the script is more important than you and your health.
P.S – For the few who asked why my character in the YouTube series ‘HOUSEHELPS’ was replaced, well… Because I chose to leave she asked that I be replaced (no surprises there)”.
