Nollywood actresses Funke Akindele, Toyin Abraham spark controversy as they release movie on same date
For sometime now, there have been speculations that actresses Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham are not friends as they always shun each other on social media during birthday, wedding anniversary, premiere and other celebrations, but a new move by Funke Akindele has sort of now confirmed the rivalry.
The talented actresses who have not been on good terms, refusing to attend each other’s movie premier and other functions began their acting career in the Yoruba movie industry and have in recent times, made their mark on the silver screen. They are arguably, no push overs when it comes to interpreting movie scripts to the letters.
Toyin Abraham recently released a sequel to her one movies, The Ghost and The Tout which premiered on the night of September 5, 2021 ahead of its official release date slated for September 10, 2021.
For weeks now, Toyin has been promoting the movie on all her social media platforms with many of her colleagues and fans reposting and sharing on their platforms as well; as a matter of fact, Iyabo Ojo released a music video to also help in creating awareness for the release date, September 10.
“It is about to be a movie, the ghost and the tout part two in cinemas from the 10th of September, anticipate”
Interestingly, Funke Akindele who has completely shunned Toyin’s movie poster has now also fixed the same date, September 10 for the release of her Omo Ghetto the Saga movie on Netflix.
“From the Ghetto to Netflix!!!!! #OmoGhettoTheSaga is coming to @naijaonnetflix this September. Get ready to experience the Saga all over again. #GetReady#September10#OmoGhettoTheSaga” Funke Akindele announced on Instagram.”
Following the clash in the release date, fans of both actresses are now torn between visiting the cinema to watch The Ghost and The Tout, or staying glued to NETFLIX for Omo Ghetto The Saga on the 10th of September, 2021.
