Comedienne, Damilola Adekoya better known as Princess narrates how the movie star, Funke Akindele treated her after she parted ways with her husband, Adeshola Jeremiah.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, she recounted how devastated she was after the unfortunate occurrence and how Funke Akindele served as a source of strength during those trying times.
She narrated how Funke Akindele compared her own experience with hers all in a bid to see that she gets relieved.
According to Princess, she was willing to book a flight for her to come over to Enugu State where she was currently shooting a movie; a move she felt would help in cheering her 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.”
