A Nigerian lady identified as Cassandra Owolabi, who formerly worked for star actress, Funke Akindele, has taken to her social media page to accuse the actress of physical, emotional and financial abuse.
Narrating her story in a lengthy 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 glitter is gold.
Sharing a 14-minute video , she wrote ;
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.
