Eniola Badmus Says She Has No Beef With Funke “Jenifa” Akindele



Eniola Badmus wants you to know she has no beef with Jenifa co-star Funke Akindele…

According to NET, after winning the City People Entertainment Awards for Best Actress a few weeks ago, Badmus acknowledged Akindele’s role in the success of her career and stressed that their relationship is a cordial one. She said,

‘Let me say here that the rumour that I and Funke Akindele are in a serious cold war is not true. I can never engage in a fight with her because she is a strong pillar behind me in the industry. She brought me into the industry, and I have featured in so many movies through her before my name got registered in people’s minds’.

So there was a rumour that Eniola Badmus & Funke Akindele had beef?!!! I didn’t hear that one ooo. But it’s good to know both actresses are on good terms. #PeaceAndLove
