Princess Damilola, a Nigerian Comedienne, has recounted how her colleague, Funke Akindele treated her after she and her husband, Adeshola Jeremiah separated.
Speaking in a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that after her breakup with her husband, she was devastated and heartbroken.
She went on to recount how Funke Akindele served as a source of strength during those trying times.
According to her, in a bid to see that she gets relieved, Funke Akindele compared her own experience with her first husband.
The entertainer even volunteered to book a trip for Princess to visit Enugu State where she was presently shooting a film; a move she felt would help in lifting her spirit 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.”
