Frontline Nigerian filmmaker and actress, Funke Akindele, has opened up about her friendships in the industry and shedding light on how she sees her relationship with her colleagues like Eniola Badmus and more.

During her interview with Arise TV, Funke Akindele was asked how she has been able to manage friendship and relationships.

She said: “I think my siblings are my friends. They are my friends. I have acquaintances, people that I’m cordial with, but not serious friendships like that. Because I’m always busy working. And when I’m not working, I’m sleeping, chilling with the kids, watching a movie, chilling with the family.

I like being in my space. I don’t really like going to parties, I’m not a party animal. I don’t like it at all. I run a studio, we film every year – we have content on Youtube, movies at cinemas and on streaming platforms. I’m very busy. So I just get busy with work and my children, because I need to give them time. So when I’m not working, I’m with my children. I’m in my space.

In the industry, I have cordial relationships with people in the industry. I love working with some particular people. I work with all my colleagues, but there are some that are so dear to my heart. I have a team, my crew members. And for my colleagues, I have cordial relationship with everybody.

When asked about Eniola Badmus specifically who she used to be once very close with, Funke Akindele gave the update on their relationship saying:

She said: “Eniola Badmus makes me laugh. She cracks me up so much. I love to chill with her. But, we’ve been so busy with life. Everybody is doing their thing. But I’m still cordial with her, and everybody.”
