Nollywood actress Iyabo Ojo has accused her colleague Funke Akindele of sponsoring a negative review of Toyin Abraham’s new film The Ghost and the Tout Too.

The star-studded movie, which premiered in cinemas on Friday, was reviewed by an Instagram blog, Cinema Pointer on Saturday, comparing it to Funke’s Omo Ghetto: The Saga.

“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,” the post read in parts.

Reacting to the post in the comment section, Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of paying the critic to give negative review about the film.

“How much did Funke pay you to write this rubbish? The day she begins to find ways not to talk to bad about her fellow colleagues or discredit their work or personality, that day she will begin to experience inner peace.

“Na social media you go dey form better person, I know you and you know me, we know ourselves wella and you Cinema Pointer go back and tell your sender that no matter how many times you try to pull Toyin down or discredit her works, it won’t work,” she wrote in parts.

Meanwhile, Funke’s Omo Ghetto began streaming on Netflix on Friday, same day The Ghost and the Tout Too premiered at the cinema.
