The feud between Akindele and Abraham became apparent a few years ago when observers noted that Akindele consistently avoided Abraham during their birthday celebrations and showed reluctance in associating with her. Abraham reciprocated this behavior during Akindele’s birthday.
It’s worth recalling that Akindele stirred controversy two years ago when she chose to premiere her movie, “Omo Ghetto: The Saga,” on the same day that Abraham’s “Ghost and the Tout” hit the cinemas.
This clash left many fans of both actresses torn between heading to the cinema to watch “The Ghost and The Tout” or staying home to stream “Omo Ghetto: The Saga” on Netflix.
