Nollywood Actress Funke Akindele AKA ”Jenifa” Takes Linda Ikeji to Court: See Court Papers, Linda Ikeji might be heading to the court as the management company of actress, Funke Akindele, has condemned in strong terms an unwarranted post by blogger, Linda Ikeji, ascribing a harmless picture on Akindele’s Instagram’s page to be a mockery of her alleged separation between her colleague, Toyin Aimakhu and her ex-husband, Adeniyi Johnson. See the post and the legal papers below: Linda posted the message below on her blog on Sunday, 25, January, 2015.
Did Funke Akindele shade Toyin Aimakhu last night?
Something happened last night but I was too tired to write it …and then I woke up this morning and almost forgot about it. *sigh*. I may be reaching and Funke may not have been referring to Toyin but let me tell you what happened and you decide for yourself.
It’s not news that Toyin Aimakhu and Funke Akindele don’t see eye to eye. If you Google, you will find a few posts of reports of the two actresses beefing each other. In fact, sometime in 2013, Toyin tweeted at an ‘aunty Agbaya’ who was going around tarnishing her image. Toyin made reference to herself being married while the ‘Agbaya’ was single and jumping around. This was a few months after Funke Akindele’s marriage ended. A lot of people felt Toyin was referring to Funke.
Well, yesterday after news hit social media that Toyin Aimakhu’s marriage to Adeniyi Johnson had crashed, Funke went on instagram and posted what you see above and under it she wrote “Yes, You!” with two tongue out smiley.
Many of her followers immediately picked up on it and accused her of shading Toyin because her marriage had also failed. When fans criticized her for the post, Funke Akindele removed it but not before I screen-grabbed it. So that’s happened. You think it had to do with Toyin?”
Benchmark Media threatened that Akindele could sue Ikeji if she does not retract the damning story and issue an apology as requested by her lawyers.
“While Linda went too far and assumed the role of a mind reader and a judge in her Sunday, January 25, 2015 post: “Did Funke Akindele Shade Toyin Aimakhu Last Night?” her management company said.
According to Benchmark Media, Ikeji’s story exposed the award winning actress to cynical comments and hasty judgements.
“Her post, did not only portray Akindele’s brand in bad light, it has promoted unhealthy rivalry where there is none,” the statement read.
