It’s impossible not to acknowledge the immense contribution of this suave, debonair and business savvy gentleman in Nigerian cinema since he returned to the country from the United Kingdom where he was was educated in Banking and Finance for his first degree and International Finance for his Master’s.

Several friends, colleagues abd well-wishers spoke glowingly of his passion for the industry, his humility and generosity, since his days as a young film buff that assisted in getting many Nollywood films screened at Odeon Cinena, in Surrey Quays, London.

Recall that Aderounmu, popularly known for her role as Esther in Jenifa’s Diary, passed away in the early hours of Saturday, 8th April 2024.

However, the brother of the deceased 37-year-old actress called out Akindele for sending her condolences after allegedly ignoring her when she needed help.

It happened that Akindele commented on the brother’s condolence message to his late sister on an Instagram blog post, saying, “Sad!!!! @jideawobona I still asked about her. Omg. May her soul rest in peace.”

In response, Aderounmu’s brother, in a series of posts via his Instagram page, commended Nollywood stars Rita Dominic and Sotayo Gaga for reaching out to his sister, unlike Funke.

The deceased’s brother added that there was no point in showing love when Funke Akindele failed to do the same when his sister was alive.

He wrote: “You that they called tirelessly, you didn’t show up, she even sent Pascal to you, and still, you didn’t reach out. Why the eye service now when she has passed away? Omo, shout-out to Rita Dominic and Sotayo Gaga. Terrible person! If you want to defend anybody, it’s fine. After all, there is nothing we can do about it.

“But don’t be a hypocrite by changing the narrative. Nobody is feeling entitled! If you refuse to show love when a person is alive, don’t do eye service when the person has passed away, just look away, and nobody will question your matter.”

In a dedicated live video on Instagram, the tearful Akindele revealed her relationship with the late Aderounmu and defended herself against the allegations by the brother.
