Funke Akindele’s Ex employee calls her out over alleged emotional and physical abuse

An employer of Funke Akindele, who simply goes by the name Khassie_ on twitter has called her out alleging she made them work too hard for her.

According to her, they couldn't watch tv, nor watch anything on their laptops while working.

Her call out below....

''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.

The experience has indeed taught me that not all that glitters is gold, literally! Looking back I just wondered how I endured so much when we were deprived of so many things. For instance, we couldn't watch TV (literally, the TV in our lodge was taken away weeks after we resumed) and she mustn't walk in on you watching anything on your laptop (can't tell you how many times she randomly sent people to come check if we were sleeping or doing anything asides writing). I mean, how do you expect your writers to be 100% productive when you don't allow them some leisure time? It didn't take me long to develop bloodshot eyes because there were daysssssssssss when we'd write all through the night, no sleep. We worked under DURESS AND FEAR. It is always about the script, the script is more important than you and your health.
P.S - For the few who asked why my character in the YouTube series 'HOUSEHELPS' was replaced, well... Because I chose to leave she asked that I be replaced (no surprises there). #IsurvivedFunkeAkindele #SurvivingFunke #freedom #speakingmytruth''

  1. Some Nigerians are ingrates. Did she force you to work with her? How will you be at work and want to watch tv at the same time. You can't be productive that way, and ofcourse salaries will be paid. Set of dumb lazy asses

  3. Nonsense, rubbish! Lazy brats. You are not forced to worked with Funke now! I see your video and complains as envy and jealousy. Start your own and allow your own and see out it goes. Ingrate staff. Just listen to yourself, people like you will run empire to bankrupt if allowed. Ask from those working in abroad if they are allowed to sit not to talk of enjoying television. Bad mouth. learn to be patience and tolerant so that good things can come out of you. It takes boldness and no sentiments to survive in business when you have many staffs especially when jealousy ones are among.
