Nollywood Actress, Funke Akindele has debunked reports that she has
moved into a private estate in Lekki, Lagos with a new lover.
The information was a lead story in the current edition of City People Magazine and has since gone viral online.
In a press statement released by Ms Akindele’s rep, Funke said, “‘It
will be vainglorious to make it a media issue, just as it is
condescending to claim any imaginary lover paid for the apartment”
In Funke’s words, “In the past few months I have enjoyed tremendous
love from my fans, family and brands that I represent. I cherish every
second I get to spend with my colleagues on sets because it has been
rewarding. I look forward to many more precious moments in the years
ahead. I appreciate the concern of fans and a section of the media on
this matter of the heart, but I plead for understanding as I continue to
concentrate my creative energy on my career and immediate family.”
The 36-year old “Jenifa” further urged the media to endeavor to
follow proper journalistic procedures and ethical concerns in matters
