Actress Funke Akindele’s ex staff, Cassandra Owolabi, calls her out over alleged physical, emotional and financial abuse.

A little update: About a month ago, I posted a lengthy video of my experience working with Funke Akindele. But the video was quickly brought down as a bid to shut me up. Naturally as a content creator, my instinct was to make another one right away but I couldn't bring myself to it due to the fact that I touched on a really sensitive topic (depression) and some experiences I passed through while working for her which was like opening old wounds and I needed time to heal from that.

I am indeed happy and relieved that I finally got to make another video in which I touched on a few things because truthfully, even if I was given a day I would still not be able to cover all the ills not just me but her staff face daily.

The experience has indeed taught me that not all that glitters is gold, literally! Looking back I just wondered how I endured so much when we were deprived of so many things. For instance, we couldn't watch TV (literally, the TV in our lodge was taken away weeks after we resumed) and she mustn't walk in on you watching anything on your laptop (can't tell you how many times she randomly sent people to come check if we were sleeping or doing anything asides writing). I mean, how do you expect your writers to be 100% productive when you don't allow them some leisure time? It didn't take me long to develop bloodshot eyes because there were daysssssssssss when we'd write all through the night, no sleep. We worked under DURESS AND FEAR. It is always about the script, the script is more important than you and your health.
P.S - For the few who asked why my character in the YouTube series 'HOUSEHELPS' was replaced, well... Because I chose to leave she asked that I be replaced (no surprises there). #IsurvivedFunkeAkindele #SurvivingFunke #freedom #speakingmytruth

cool



Two Movie Producers that see movie Production Business as war and battlefield are Kunle Afolayan and Funke Akindele

They don't joke on set , to them a movie Project is like NASA rocket lunch that no mistake must be tolerated

Well if I am to be very fair and honest here, Funke paid you to write scripts and even gave you a lodge and a laptop to work with, now you complained she took away the TV in your lodge, and insisted you use the laptops only for scripts writing, and not Facebooking , yet you complain, why not use your own salary to buy yourself a TV, and Internet enabled device, subscribe and watch internet on your own time

Accross UAE, most recruitment firms would paste it openly that they don't want Nigerians, they accept Ethiopians , Cameroonians , Ugandans and other Africans , then I curiously asked an HR with this recruitment firm why, the lady said they had bad experience with Nigerians, Nigerians sign an offer letter because of the salary without reading the responsibility

The Chagaoury are now using labourers from India, Benin Republic and others for Eko Atlantic,

Dangote refinery also uses Indians and Chinese

And if you think ordinary Nigerians are worst try the civil servants

Nigerians need this level of seriousness in everything. It’s no wonder both individuals accrue rave reviews from the Nigerian audience. I have not watched any of Funke’s offerings, but I know very well Afolayan releases top quality productions.

Hmm.
Let me rebut her claims:

Funke is just a workaholic. She's serious-minded. She wants 100%. Sometimes to get the best, strictness in workplace is best option. A free handed management mostly leads to lackadaisical attitude on the part of the employees.
So because she doesn't allow TV watching means she's evil, right?
Then corporate institutions that frown against play at work and other distractions are evil.

Workers will always find a way to make what they dislike in the employer seem so evil.

If funke is paying you for the script, give her what she wants.

Did she put a gun to your head to work for her?
You had a choice to quit and move on to where suits you.
A place you can mix business with online gossips!
'She' who pays the piper dictates the tune.

Nothing u go do for dis world wey people no go talk sha!

Abegi. What do you expect working for someone on top of the food chain? Even Bezos, Gates and Zuckerberg. All those top leaders, go and ask those below how rosy everything is na.

If you don't like where you're find a way to move up the food chain. Lions treat each other with respect. You don't expect the Lion to play tennis with with a cheetah. The game is use and dump. No time.
