Toyin Abraham has finally reacted to the claims of being in competition with senior colleague Funke Akindele stressing that she doesn’t care who is doing better than her.
“I don’t care who is doing better than me, I was doing better than I was last year” Toyin posted on Instagram moments ago.
She further wrote
“Fam! Happy Monday! Trust we all had a good weekend? I had the most fantastic one! Guess what fam! I beat my last opening record!!!
I’m coming o, just chill small, I’ll soon give you the full gist, but reports reaching me is that the performance this weekend is almost 2x or my previous movie (Fate of Alakada)
Anyways, before I go, today is a great day to achieve your own dreams! Never give up and have a blessed day. Don’t forget to go and watch The Ghost and the Tout TOO! Showing across ALL cinemas in Nigeria! #IAmMyOwnCompetition #OpeNiFOluwa”
For some time now, there have been speculations that actors Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham are not friends as they always shun each other on social media during birthdays, wedding anniversaries, premieres, and other celebrations.
The talented actresses who have not been on good terms began their acting career in the Yoruba movie industry and have in recent times, made their mark on the silver screen. They are arguable, no pushovers when it comes to interpreting movie scripts to the letters but there is a pronounced rivalry between them for who is the best,
Their rivalry became pronounced after Toyin Abraham recently released a sequel to her one movie, The Ghost and The Tout for September 10, 2021, and interestingly, Funke Akindele who completely shunned Toyin’s movie poster also fixed the same date, September 10 for the release of her Omo Ghetto the Saga movie on Netflix, an act that divided their fans.
The rivalry grew wings over the weekend when Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of paying a popular movie critic to run down Toyin Abraham’s movie.
