Iyabo Ojo calls out Funke Akindele over harsh criticism on Toyin Abraham’s movie

Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, has accused her colleague Funke Akindele of paying a blogger to say negative things about Toyin Abraham’s “The Ghost and the Tout Too”.

Cinema Pointer, a movie critic blog, gave harsh criticism of the recently released movie by Toyin Abraham while elevating Funke Akindele’s movie. The critic wrote in part: “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.

Iyabo Ojo, who also starred in the recently released movie, “The Ghost and the Tout Too”, was angered by the article. She believes that Funke Akindele paid sponsored the highly critical movie to tarnish Toyin Abraham’s work while promoting hers.

Here is why she thought so: while continuing the article, Cinema Pointer wrote: “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. [sic]

“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.”

Reacting to the post from the critic, Ojo wrote, “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 you@cinemapointer 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.”
