Reactions as Iyabo Ojo calls out Funke Akindele over Toyin Abraham

Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, has accused Funke Akindele, also an actress, of paying a blogger to say negative things about “The Ghost and the Tout Too”, a movie owned by Toyin Abraham.

After much anticipation, the movie was released in the cinemas on the 10th of September.

Osas Ighodaro, Mercy Johnson Okojie, Iyabo Ojo, Destiny Etiko are among the movie cast.

There have been mixed reactions to the movie. However, the comment of a critic has triggered backlash.

In an Instagram post, a user named @cinemapointer, wrote, “Not recommended for intelligent people. Over the years, we have told you many truths but non greater than this: Intelligent minds were not taken into consideration at all in the writing and in the making of ‘Ghost and The Tout Too’. Thusly, intelligent minds will not enjoy it at all.

“Regardless of how flagrantly copycats of ‘Ómó Ghetto: The Saga’ desperately hoping to shine like it. Unlike that one ‘The Ghost and The Tout Too’ doesn’t understand that movie-making is rooted in brain-work and not in using cinema to do ‘Yahoo’, abusing stardoms to fleece fandoms.

“Sadly, in ‘The Ghost and The Tout Too’, celebrity after celebrity only lead to leprotic performance after leprotic performance.

“As a haplessly brain-dead story leads to pointless scene after pointless scene, all soaked together in a deluge of sterile dialogue. So much so that trying to find any mirth seeing it would be an exercise in futility.

“Trust us, if you are intelligent, you are better off staying back home this weekend to watch ‘Ómó Ghetto: The Saga’ which incidentally opens on Netflix this Friday, 10th of September 2021. If not, brain go pain you tire.”

In her reaction, Ojo said, “How much did Funke pay you to write this rubbish? The day she begins to find ways not to talk bad about her fellow colleagues or try to discredit their hard work or personality that day she will begin to experience inner peace.

“Na social media you go dey form better person. I know you and you know me, we know ourselves wella and [email protected] go back and tell your sender that no matter how many times you try to pull Toyin down of discredit her works, it won’t work.

“Toyin’s hard work and movie Ghost and The Tout Too’ will make box office and your blood gonna dry from hate and jealousy…I said what I said messenger of doom.”

Akindele and Abraham are yet to react to the issue.
