Jide Awobona defends Funke Akindele

Shortly after Funke Akindele was dragged online, Nollywood actor and fellow Jenifa’s Diary star, Jide Awobona, shared his two cents on the matter.

In a post that was shared on social media by @Temilolasobola and spotted by TheTalk.NG, Jide Awobona shut down the late actress’ brother’s claims of Funke Akindele not being there for his sister.

According to Awobona, Funke Akindele actually called him to reach out to the late Jumoke on her behalf because she knew they were cool. He added that she insisted he made the call and that he even berated the late movie star for isolating herself.

In his words:

“I really don’t feel like saying anything about this but I need to let the world know that Aunty Funke actually called me to ask of Jumoke because she knows we were cool. She insisted I call her to be sure she is fine. I did, we spoke at length and I complained about her isolating herself. May her soul Rest In Peace and May God forgive us all.”
