Comedienne, Damilola Adekoya also known as Princess has opened up on the role Funke Akindele played when she parted ways with her husband, Adeshola Jeremiah.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the funny lady narrated how she almost lost control of herself when her marriage crashed and also how Akindele came through for her.
Princess stated that the actress did all she could to stabilize her while using her own marriage as a case study.
According to Princess, Akindele was ready to book a flight ticket in order to join her at Enugu where she was shooting a movie so as to cheer her up.
In her words:
“Funke Akindele called me and I’m sure she’ll remember, she called me and said princess kilonshele, I heard you almost cried yourself to death. Chude I’m telling you, I cried I became sick and lost weight. I said “ah Funke”, I told her in Yoruba, I said my life is ended.
“She said why will you say that, I said can’t you see what happened to my marriage, and then she said didn’t you hear what happened to mine. I said Funke your own is different, you can’t compare yourself to me, atleast you stayed in your husbands house for a year. And she said what are you talking about Princess? And she said to me, im in Enugu shooting, please let me pay for your flight ticket, come and meet me, I said ah I don’t think I’ll be able to come, she said ah what are you doing, I said im washing, she said kilonfo, I said I’m just washing, she said where are you going, I’m not going anywhere, i was in that house wearing just one clothe. She said Princess mi o understand. Princess, please let me pay for your ticket, come and meet me in Enugu, I’m shooting, we’lll talk.
“Then I heard people calling her saying Funke we are ready, so she said, ‘Princess shey o Na wa? Call me’.
“I didn’t call her.”
