Popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo has blasted and dragged her colleague, Funke Akindele, also known as Jenifa, and accused her of paying an Instagram page to write a bad review about Toyin Abraham's new movie and discredit her.
Hours ago, the Instagram page with the username 'Cinemapointer' reviewed 'The Ghost And The Tout Too', and unfortunately, the review was not at all in favour of the stars featured in the movie.
According to the writer, the movie is not recommended for intelligent people, and the movie is nothing but a sample of Funke Akindele's 'Omo Ghetto: The Saga'.
"Not recommended for intelligent people. Over the years, we have told you many truth but non greater than this: intelligent minds were not taken into consideration at all in the writing and in the making of 'The Ghost And The Tout Too'. Thusly, intelligent minds will not enjoy it at all.
Regardless of how flagrantly it copycats off 'Omo Ghetto: The Saga' desperately hoping to shine like it. Unlike that one 'The Ghost And Tout Took doesn't understand that movie-making is rooted in brain-work and not using cinema to do 'yahoo', abusing stardom to fleece fandom."

Looking at this write-up and so-called review, you can tell that the writer is biased. Actually, he might not have been paid to do this by anyone, but the review is a destructive one. How can one come out to discredit another person's effort just like that.
Iyabo Ojo seems to be the freedom fighter in the industry right now, she has always been against any form of injustice in the film industry, although she seems to have gone too far on this matter by blasting Funke Akindele and accusing her without any concrete evidence.
The popular actress commented on the post asking the writer how much did Funke pay him to write this.
Iyabo furthermore, said Jenifa is always fond of looking down on her fellow colleagues, discrediting their work and personality, and that social media might not be aware of this, but she knows her very well.
Iyabo then faced the writer telling him they can't pull Toyin down no matter how hard they try, assuring him that her movie will be a success.
The actress then ended with some loads of curse. Read her comment below.
