Toyin Abraham finally breaks her silence speaks about her industry competition feud with her contemporary colleague the ace actress and filmmaker Funke Akindele, saying she is her own competition and doesn’t care who is doing better than her, so far she is doing better than she was doing last year.
The actress said this in a post she shared on her Instagram page this morning, writing, “I don’t care who is doing better than me, I was doing better than I was last year”
She then further quoted her post with a caption reading;
“Fam! Happy Monday! Trust we all had a good weekend? I had the most fantastic one! Guess what fam! I beat my last opening record!!!
I’m coming o, just chill small, I’ll soon give you the full gist, but reports reaching me is that the performance this weekend is almost 2x of my previous movie (Fate of Alakada)
Anyways, before I go, today is a great day to achieve your own dreams! Never give up and have a blessed day. Don’t forget to go and watch The Ghost and the Tout TOO! Showing across ALL cinemas in Nigeria! #IAmMyOwnCompetition #OpeNiFOluwa”
For some time now, there have been speculations that actors Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham are not friends as they always shun each other on social media during birthdays, wedding anniversaries, premieres, and other celebrations.

The talented actresses who have not been on good terms began their acting career in the Yoruba movie industry and have in recent times, made their mark on the silver screen. They are arguably no pushovers when it comes to interpreting movie scripts to the letters but there is a pronounced rivalry between them for who is the best,
KOKO TV recounts that their rivalry became pronounced after Toyin Abraham recently released a sequel to her one movie, The Ghost and The Tout for September 10, 2021, and interestingly, Funke Akindele who completely shunned Toyin’s movie poster also fixed the same date, September 10 for the release of her Omo Ghetto the Saga movie on Netflix, an act that divided their fans.
The rivalry grew wings over the weekend when Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of paying a popular movie critic to run down Toyin Abraham’s movie.

“Not Recommended for intelligent people. Over the years, we have told you many truths but non Greater than this: Intelligent minds were not taken into consideration at all in the writing and in the making of ‘Ghost and The Tout Too‘.
Thusly, intelligent minds will not enjoy it at all.
Regardless of how flagrantly it copycats off ‘Ómó Ghetto: The Saga’ desperately hoping to shine like it. Unlike that one ‘The Ghost and The Tout Too’ doesn’t understand that movie-making is rooted in brain-work and not in using cinema to do “Yahoo”, abusing stardoms to fleece fandoms.
If you are intelligent, you are better off staying back home this weekend to watch ‘Ómó Ghetto: The Saga,” part of the critic’s review read.
