Why Eniola Badmus and I are not close anymore – Funke Akindele

Award-winning actress, Funke Akindele, has revealed why she and her colleague, Eniola Badmus are no longer as close as they used to be.

She stated that Badmus always made her laugh whennever they met and worked together, but they have not seen often in recent times because they’re very busy and each have their own thing going.

Akindele stated this when she granted an interview on Arise TV to give an insight into her approach to maintaining friendships in the entertainment industry.

She said that she has never had serious friends aside from her siblings, and when it comes to her social life, she is an introvert who dislikes parties and prefers to sleep at home, watch a movie or go to the studio.

When specifically asked about Eniola Badmus who she used to be very close with, she said; “Eniola Badmus cracks me up so much. I love to chill with her. But, we have been so busy with life. Everybody is doing their thing.”

Akindele also revealed that she maintains a cordial relationship with all her colleagues, but she likes working with a certain group of people – which can be observed in her productions.

In her words; “I think my siblings are my friends. I have people that I’m cordial with, but not serious friendships like that. Because I am always busy with work. And when I am not working, I will be sleeping, watching a movie, chilling with the kids and family.

“I like being in my space. I don’t like going to parties. I run a studio, we film every year and we have movies at cinemas and on streaming platforms including content on Youtube. I’m very busy. So I just get busy with work and my children. I have cordial relationships with all my colleagues in the industry. But I love working with some particular people”.
