She further disclosed that she started seeing Funke Akindele as someone that knows what she wants, and she often goes for it.

She said, “I don’t know why. We started together, we were close from the beginning. Maybe she works with people she is comfortable with. I don’t know, she is in the best position to answer that

I have also not featured her in any of my movies before. I invited her more than two times. There was a time when I invited her to be my MC. There was another time I invited her to my first movie, we were in Unilag then.

“She packed two different boxes of costumes, and as we were about to get onto the bus, I think she got a call. We spoke about it and she felt it was best she didn’t follow us.

For me, it was weird. I started seeing her as someone who knows what she wants. She has been able to build herself and it works with her.”
