Olayode Juliana, the actress, has tendered a public apology to Funke Akindele after a six-year feud.


In 2017, it was reported that Juliana was dropped from Akindele’s sitcom, ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ over a monetary dispute.

But in an Instagram post on Saturday, Juliana acknowledged that she experienced fame because of Akindele.

She said her lack of industry knowledge and a misguided guardian caused her to feud with the filmmaker.


She also expressed her love for Akinde and apologised for what she described as her “mistakes”.

“God used Aunty Funke Akindele @funkejenifaakindele to put me into the limelight,” Juliana wrote.

“The kind of fame I earned from playing Toyosi in Jenifa’s Diary was too enormous for my understanding.


“However, the lack of industry nitty gritty started manifesting in me, coupled with the fact that I had a guardian (manager) who didn’t understand how the entertainment industry works.

“My guardian sent an email to Scene One TV, the producers of the Sitcom, which entire content I wasn’t aware of until recently. I want to use this opportunity to apologise to Aunty Funke Akindele.

“I am incredibly sorry for how I hurt you and how the email that was sent hurt you. Please forgive me for my childish mistakes of the past, I am deeply sorry for everything. I love you eternally Aunty Funke.”

Funke Akindele took to the comment section to reply to her apology.


She described Juliana as her child and said she misses her.

She also hinted at a possible reunion.

“My Juliana. I miss you. I will bite you. Omo mi. I love you. See you soon,” Akindele wrote.
