Toyin Abraham debunked every rumor of an ongoing beef with senior colleague, Funke Akindele Bello aka Jennifer.

Reacting to the review, Iyabo Ojo, a colleague who also starred in the movie, accused Funke Akindele of paying the reviewer to write the negative review. She added that Funke is always finding ways to discredit her colleagues.
This led people to believe there’s beef between Toyin Abraham and Funke Akindele.
But the 39-year-old Toyin Abraham quashed the rumours during an interview.
Toyin said Funke Akindele is one of the few people in the Nigerian movie industry that she looks up to and respects. She added that she kneels down to greet her whenever they meet in public.
Toyin Abraham said: “She is my senior colleague and she is someone I respect a lot; so, I do not know what people are talking about, trust me. She is one of the few people I look up to. Sometimes, people do not understand that we are colleagues and not family. So, you cannot be talking to all your colleagues. We talk, we follow each other.
“If I see her, I will kneel down and say, ‘Aunty Funke se wa okay?’. A lot of people do not understand that we are working in the same space; we do not have to be close friends. When we see ourselves we greet each other. Forget social media, trust me.”
