Actress Toyin Abraham has reacted to the criticism from trolls who accused her of copying her colleague Funke Akindele’s project.

Toyin in an Instagram post on Thursday announced she has launched a cartoon channel for kids on Youtube called Toyin Abraham Kiddies.

She wrote: “Hello fam! I am delighted to present to you my new YouTube CHANNEL created for our beautiful children to learn while having fun. It is called “TOYIN ABRAHAM Kiddies” where you will find all contents for your kids.”

Moments after she shared the good news, some Instagram users stormed the comment section of her post to accuse her of doing something similar to what Funke Akindele and her estranged husband did on their Youtube channel.

In the now-deleted comments, Akanmu Adedamola wrote; “Why does this feel like a “Funke Akindele” initiative?”

“You sha dey chase Funke Akindele. You’re always doing everything she does.”

“This is similar to what JJC and Funke are doing on their own kids’ channel,” Amanda wrote.

After the comments were deleted, Toyin shared a now-edited Instagram post on Friday, saying she will not pay attention to those belittling her ambition.

“Pay no attention to those trying to belittle your ambition,” she wrote while urging fans to subscribe to her Youtube channel.

Reacting in the comment section of the post, a fan identified as Botarumskin drummed support for her saying, “We are with you our world best for life. God is bigger than jealous world people.”

For years, there have been speculations about a rift between Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham which the latter debunked.

In September last year, actress Iyabo Ojo accused Funke Akindele of sponsoring a negative review of Toyin Abraham’s film The Ghost and the Tout Too.
