Funke Akindele's Former Staff Accuses Her

Cassandra Owolabiwho accused her of physical, emotional and financial abuses.

She called the actress out on her Instagram page yesterday, June 28.

It should be recalled that about a month ago, same lady had called Funke Akindele out but shortly after, the video became unavailable thereby making many to think it was a false accusation.

In the new video which is more detailed, she revealed that Funke Akindele planned and took down the video probably by reporting the video to Instagram.

Narrating her ordeal in the post which she tagged #IsurvivedFunkeAkindele, Cassandra who is a screenwriter, alleged that Funke made her staff work under ‘duress and fear’.

She added that the experience has taught her that not all that glitters is gold.

Talking about her experience with the actress, she wrote the following;

“FINALLY FOUND THE STRENGTH TO SPEAK UP AGAIN

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.”
