Fausat Balogun, the Yoruba actress popularly known as Madam Saje, has engaged Modupe Johnson, her colleague, in a verbal clash.
The altercation between both film stars followed after their attendance at a birthday party hosted by Yinka Quadri.
In an Instagram, Balogun could be seen dissing Johnson, who is fondly called Fali Werepe, after the latter reacted to a speech made by the former.

Balogun gave a short speech about Yinka wherein she said she “has been in the movie industry with Yinka for over 50 years.”
Her statement appeared to have sparked a reaction from Johnson who immediately exclaimed “ah”.
Riled by Johnson’s reaction, Balogun argued that she has been in the industry long before her colleague came along.
“I’m not your mate in the industry. Let’s say it in public. I am your boss,” Balogun said in Yoruba.
Clearing the air during her own speech, Johnson said she does not hold any grudge against Balogun.
She said she only reacted to what she described as the actress’ “exaggeration”.
Johnson also argued that they have not been in the industry for 50 years as Balogun claimed.
“When she said she has been with Yinka for over 50 years, I shouted ‘ahh’. I am not the only one who shouted. People know when we started filming but we haven’t been in the industry for 50 years,” she replied.
“I and Abeni are friends and we can’t fight but we haven’t been in the industry for 50 years.”
