Star Actress Funke Akindele-Bello is in the news again but this time not for hosting a party rather it’s for series of accusations by her former staffs.
A good number of her former workers particularly one Cassandra Owolabi (Khassie_) claimed that Funke Akindele-Bello abused her and some other workers emotional, verbally, physically and financially.
She claimed she and other workers would work for long hours without rest and they were also denied their freedom.
She narrated the ordeal they faced while working for her in this video 👇

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
Here is another testimony by an Instagram user who also at a point in time worked for her
If you decide to come to my mentions to say my friend was lying or why didn’t she leave, I’ll drag you back to your fav.
