According to recent reports, Toyin Abraham and Funke Akindele have quietly settled their longstanding feud, which had previously remained unspoken.
There have been previous allegations of rivalry between the two actresses, especially concerning their films’ box office success.
Their choice to release their films simultaneously on September 10, 2021, with “Ghost and the Tout Too” in theaters and “Omo Ghetto the Saga” on Netflix, created quite a buzz and drew considerable attention.
At a time, Iyabo Ojo further fueled the rivalry by alleging that Funke Akindele was sponsoring an online movie platform to always tarnish Toyin Abraham’s movies with bad reviews.
It became even more apparent when the two actors in 2022 kept bragging about how well their movies did in the Nigerian cinema box office, turning their fans and even colleagues against each other.
Funke Akindele had announced on Wednesday, December 28, 2023 that her movie, Battle on Buka street grossed over N200 million at the Nigeriain box office in 12 days.
Not to be intimidated by the feat, Toyin Abraham who released Ijakumo on December 23, on the same date also announced that her movie hit N31million in one day and N65 million in just 5 days.
Interestingly, the two women have now reconciled and exchanged pleasantries on Instagram today, August 24th, 2023. Toyin Abraham posted a photo of Funke Akindele on her Instagram story in celebration of her 46th birthday and wrote “Happy birthday aunty Funke, send cake o”.
Funke Akindele acknowledged the post by reposting it on her Instagram page and responded with “Thanks darling, you too send cake”
