Eniola Badmus Explains Her Closeness To Best Friend Funke Akindele And Olamide
Eniola Badmus has been very close to Funke Akindele for so many years. In a recent Instagram Live chat with Seye Kehinde, the “Ghetto Bred” actress talks Funke’s arrest after she went against lockdown restrictions and threw a birthday party for her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz. She also discusses Olamide and respect.
At the time Funke Akindele had her problem, how did you feel considering your closeness?
That day I was out of this world. I wasn’t myself. I was like what is going on. I tried to get there I couldn’t because there was police on the road and they stopped us. I wasn’t myself, because I have seen myself in Funke and Funke in me, that whatever is happening to her it’s happening to me too. I was not myself at all.
The way even people go about it was like, somebody called me and said “Eniola you are trending” trending, why? What is going on? I had to go on twitter and saw all manners of shading, people were saying all sort of things.
That day was one of my red-letter days, I can’t even explain how I felt that day?
You and Funke have been close for a while, how did you develop that relationship to this point?
Funke Akindele is one person you should know who she really is before been her friend or been very close. Funke loves Loyalty. She is a playful person. When Funke is cool with you, she wants to be around you. Funke is someone that wants to see everybody eating at the same time. Funke is like a mother, she has that mother figure in her. She cares a lot about people around her. Somehow, we are cool. You know Funke is funny and I am also funny too. We don’t get thing personal to ourselves, even if Funke did something wrong to me I won’t see it as being wrong, we would play and laugh over it. I call her Lafunky.
Somebody said what is your relationship with Olamide?
Olamide is a brother from another mother. He is one person I talk to every day of my life. He is someone we try to put ideas together. Olamide is a brother, he is part of me. There are some of the things I do that the idea is from Olamide and I use to give him ideas too.
We relate so well. I don’t see him like someone I am older than, I see him like my men, people I relate freely with, and that is how it should be if you want to acquire wisdom. I am not kind of person that expects you to call me Aunty, just call me Senator Badosky or Baddoo, I am good with it (laugh).
