Funke Akindele is shutting down rumours that she has moved in with a new lover.
The Nollywood actress via her representative confirms to BN that a story circulating online and print that she has found a new love who moved her into a private estate in Lekki, Lagos, is bogus.
The information was a lead story in the current edition of City People Magazine and has since become viral online.
A rep for the 36-year old “Jenifa” superstar says that Funke has since moved to her Lekki apartment quietly and will be “vainglorious to make it a media issue, just as it is condescending to claim any imaginary lover paid for the apartment.”
Funke’s rep went on to say that “the star appreciates the concern of fans and a section of the media on this matter of the heart, pleads for understanding as she continues to concentrate her creative energy on her career and immediate family.”
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.” she says.
Funke also dismissed the report that there are moves to reconcile with her ex-hubby Kehinde Oloyede. Calling it “false”.
She urges the media to endeavour to follow proper journalistic procedures and ethical concerns in matters like this.
