IBADAN, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, surprised Nigerians as she celebrated Funke Akindele on her 45th birthday today, 24 August, 2022.
The actress took to her Instagram page to shower love on the birthday girl.
Iyabo Ojo prayed for more blessings and more wins for her.
“Fly high birthday girl….more blessings more success more wins. Happy birthday mate”.
According to reports, the two actresses Iyabo Ojo and Funke Akindele had been at loggerheads for years.
Iyabo Ojo dragged Funke Akindele when a blogger criticised Toyin Abraham’s movie, ‘The Ghost and The Tout’.
In a lengthy post shared on her Instagram page, Iyabo Ojo said there had been rumours that someone she once helped in and outside the Nollywood industry finds great joy in constantly stabbing her and tried all her best to destroy her.
Iyabo Ojo said no human was above or beneath her because everyone is equal in the eyes of God, and she doesn’t pretend nor package anything for anyone.
According to Iyabo Ojo, she does not have any reason to hate anyone because she’s beyond blessed and contented with the little she owns.
Iyabo Ojo added that Funke Akindele should stop forming class or disassociating herself from certain people and avoid bringing people together only when needed.
Although Iyabo Ojo didn’t mention Funke Akindele’s name in the post, many netizens claimed the post was directed to Funke following her absence at Eniola’s party.
Eniola Badmus had celebrated her 20th year in Nollywood in December 2021, and many of her colleagues, including Iyabo Ojo was present.
There were speculations that Funke Akindele who is a close friend of Eniola Badmus, shunned the event to avoid any drama with Iyabo Ojo and Toyin Abraham following their long time beef.
However, the duo had put their beef of many years aside by embracing and exchanging pecks at the ongoing Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award season 8.
Funke Akindele embraced Iyabo Ojo after she stepped on stage to accept the award for her movie, Omo Ghetto: the saga which was announced by the latter.
Gushing about the moment, Iyabo Ojo said “My day started well but damn!!! I almost didn’t make the #amvcca8 ….Presenting an Award to Funke & most especially hugging her made my day ..Congratulations on your wins mate”
