Nollywood actor, Tobi Makinde has taken to his Instagram page to shower accolades on his boss Funke Akindele, a day after the popular actress was accused by an ex-staff member of being an abuser.
Yesterday, Cassandra Owolabi, a screenwriter who formerly worked with Funke Akindele, accused the actress of maltreating and abusing her staffs physically, emotionally and financially.
However, a day after the accusation, Makinde who is popularly known for his role as ‘Timini’ in comedy series, Jenifa’s Diary, produced by Funke, has showered praises on his boss.
Sharing a photo of himself and his boss, he wrote, “A river that forgets its source will surely dry up. I remember when I had no idea how I was gonna move on in life after my master’s degree, you were there to take me in with little or no experience whatsoever about running production. You said you would give me a job without knowing me from anywhere, without knowing my capabilities. All I had was my educational qualification and thirst to work and learn on the job.
Prior to this, I had tried to work in other production outfits but none took me not because I wasn’t qualified but because they probably didn’t believe in me. You, on the other hand, believed in me, took me as a son, scolded me when I messed up all in a bid to make me better at my craft. Only the patient and hardworking will understand who you really are. Thank you, mom, for everything and may God keep blessing you❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
@funkejenifaakindele I really appreciate you ma!!“
