Nollywood actress Bimbo Akisanya has spoken out about accusations against her colleague Funke Akindele, following the tragic passing of Jenifa’s Diary cast member, Adejumoke Ademorunmu.

Aderounmu’s brother, in a series of Instagram posts on Monday, criticized Funke for not assisting his sister and praised Rita Dominic and Sotayo Gaga for their support.

In response to Funke’s social media post, Adejumoke’s brother mentioned that it was pointless for the actress to show love now when she didn’t do so while his sister was alive.

During an Instagram live session on Tuesday, Funke expressed her disappointment over a negative comment made by a follower on her page regarding Jumoke’s situation.

Funke explained that she had inquired about Jumoke’s well-being and was unaware of her illness until news of her passing.

The actress mentioned that she also faced difficult times, emphasizing that she experienced depression after her mother passed away.

In a post on her Instagram page, Bimbo Akisanya defended Funke by recalling how she was covering the medical expenses of a makeup artist in the film industry who has cancer.

She pointed out that Funke, like everyone else, is not perfect but still finds ways to assist those in need.

He said, “About 10yrs ago I saw the late folake oshadare ( one of our make-up artists ) at Ikeja & we exchanged phone numbers. She called me that very day & said I should please help her with some money to buy her drugs cos she was a cancer patient. In her words, @funkejenifaakindele was the one giving her money for the drugs every month. Yes, EVERY MONTH.

“But she couldn’t get through to Funke cos she was not in the country reason she asked me for help. I remember calling my sister & even telling my mum about Funke’s kind gesture, in fact, I was moved to tears.

“Funke is not perfect & no one is, but I know that this lady right here is an Angel in her own way. We all have our shortcomings but with what I know & heard about Funke, please let’s give it to her. May God Almighty continue to guide & guard our steps.”
