Iyabo Ojo has called out her colleague, Funke Akindele-Bello for using an Instagram page as a front to discredit Toyin Abraham’s recently released star studded movie, The Ghost and The Tout 2.
The movie which began showing in cinemas in Nigeria on Friday September 10, was reviewed by an Instagram page called Cinema Pointer.
“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 2
“Thus intelligent minds will not enjoy it at all. Regardless of how flagrantly it copycats off 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.
“If you are intelligent, you are better off staying back home this weekend to watch Ómó Ghetto: The Saga,” part of his review read.
Well, obviously this didn’t go down well with Abraham, her friends in the industry and some of her fans.
Ojo leading the pack stormed the page to leave a long comment where she not only expressed her disappointment but also fingered Akindele-Bello of sponsoring the negative review of the movie.
Ojo also accused Akindele-Bello of being full of jealousy and negativity, adding that The Ghost and The Tout 2 will surpass Funke’s Omo Ghetto: The Saga.
“How much did Funke pay you to write this rubbish? The day she begins to find ways not to talk to bad about her fellow colleagues or discredit their work or personality, that day she will begin to experience inner peace,” angry Ojo said.
