Nollywood Actress Takes Drastic Step Amidst Controversy, Rekindling Past Rivalry with Box Office Record Breaker
Nollywood actress and producer Toyin Abraham has made headlines by blocking a social media influencer who dared to compare her success to that of box office sensation Funke Akindele, triggering a renewed wave of drama within the industry.
The catalyst for this latest controversy was X influencer Adetutu Balogun, who sparked Toyin Abraham’s ire with a mocking comparison of her victory at the box office to that of Funke Akindele and Mercy Aigbe. In a Yoruba-language post, Adetutu declared that Funke Akindele would forever be their boss due to operating on different levels, leading to her swift blocking by Toyin Abraham.
The online community has been buzzing with mixed reactions, dissecting Toyin Abraham’s response to the comparison. Notably, industry observers recall that Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham had seemingly put an end to their feud and reunited in 2023.
The duo, who had a long-standing beef, managed to bury the hatchet during a joint celebration of each other’s birthdays. The reconciliation made waves as they shared heartfelt posts about one another on Instagram, suggesting a renewed camaraderie.
Toyin Abraham’s notable presence at Funke Akindele’s premiere for “She Must Be Obeyed” further fueled speculation about the true nature of their relationship. Fans and critics alike are now left wondering if this recent blocking incident signifies a return to animosity between the two actresses.
Reminiscent of their 2021 clash, Toyin Abraham and Funke Akindele once again found themselves in the spotlight when they chose the same release date, September 10, 2021, for their respective movies – ‘Ghost and the Tout Too’ in cinemas and ‘Omo Ghetto: The Saga’ on Netflix. The rivalry reached its peak when actress Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of orchestrating a plot to undermine Toyin Abraham’s film by paying a popular movie critic.
As the social media drama unfolds, Nollywood enthusiasts eagerly await further developments, curious to see whether this clash will reignite past tensions or lead to a new chapter in the dynamic relationship between Toyin Abraham and Funke Akindele.
