Fast rising Nollywood actress, Opeifa Adenike has come out to defend actress, Funke Akindele after she was accused of financial, physical and spiritual abuse by a former staff.
Kemi Filani News earlier reported that a former staff named, Cassandra Owolabi in a lengthy video accused the actress and producer of treating them in an inhumane way.
Cassandra alleged that Funke Akindele’s action pushed her into depression.
In an Exclusive interview with Within Nigeria, Opeifa who has worked with Funke on four different projects said Funke is a “disciplinarian, who is just hooked up to her work.”
“She is a disciplinarian, who doesn’t add fun to work. I have worked with Funke on four different projects and when i work with her she spurs me into seriousness. Most talents are not patient and if you’re one of them, you can’t work with Funke” Opeifa said.
“Funke always tries to get things done. She is a makeup artist on her set, she’s the hair stylist, she is a costumer on her set. She always tries to get things done, she tries to make things perfect, once your’e sitting and joking, she scolds you.”
When asked if Funke Akindele has ever hit her staff as claimed by Cassandra, Opeifa replied;
“I have never seen Funke hit her staff before”
