Aside that of Jumoke, the actress was also accused of not helping her colleagues, maltreating her staff and not rendering help to them when in need.

Funke Akindele who has been mute on all of  these allegations, responded saying they are too much lies told against her.

Aderounmu who starred in the popular TV series Jenifa’s Diary, d3ed on April 6 after a brief illness.

Funke Akindele mourned the deceased in an Instagram post on Monday but the brother of the late actress, Adeolu Aderounmu was fast to drag her, calling her an “hypocrite’.

According to Adeolu, when the deceased was ill, she reached out to Funke several times but the star actress did not give a response.

The accusations sparked mixed reactions on social media as many criticised Funke over Adeolu’s claim.

Addressing the matter in an Instagram live session on Tuesday, Funke Akindele stated that she reached out to Jumoke’s brother after seeing his post but the latter ignored her message.

Funke who started crying during the live session, added that no one told her about Jumoke’s health.

With tears in her eyes, she lamented bitterly about the accusations, denying them all.

She said; “People say ‘she doesn’t support her colleagues, she doesn’t attend events’, I live in Amen Estate, that’s where my studio is. Before I drive down to Ikoyi Lekki for an event, dem no go don finish the event?

“Please, I don’t beef any filmmaker, I do my thing, I face where I am going, the records I’ve been able to break is by the grace of God. Don’t forget I’ve got my trying moments. During COVID remember? My mum passed on, politics, I was backlashed, marriage remember?

“Somebody now said ‘you will lose your children’, I think that’s too much.

“I sent a message to that guy, Jumoke’s brother, he saw it, but he didn’t reply. I said ‘oh I’m sorry sorry I didn’t hear, I don’t know anything about your sister. I don’t go to blogs’. They said different things on blogs to me as long as my name is not being mentioned, I do my thing and I face where I am going,” a teary Funke said.

Addressing claims of maltreating her workers, Funke said: “Yes, I am strict, I am very strict, I will not take nonsense, I am focused. Whoever works with me that wants to go can go, whoever wants to stay can stay.”
