Actress Toyin Abraham has responded to trolls’ accusations that she plagiarized the work of her colleague Funke Akindele.
The allegations began after Toyin on Thursday announced
that she has started the Toyin Abraham Kiddies YouTube channel, which features children’s cartoons.
“Hello fam! I am delighted to present to you my new YouTube CHANNEL created for our beautiful children to learn while having fun. It is called “TOYIN ABRAHAM Kiddies” where you will find all contents for your kids.”

However immediately after she announced the good news, many Instagram users bombarded her post’s comment section to accuse her of imitating Funke Akindele and her estranged husband’s actions on their Youtube channel.
In the now-deleted comments, Akanmu Adedamola wrote;
“Why does this feel like a “Funke Akindele” initiative?”
“You sha dey chase Funke Akindele. You’re always doing everything she does.”
“This is similar to what JJC and Funke are doing on their own kids’ channel,” Amanda wrote.
After the comments were removed, Toyin uploaded a now-edited Instagram post on Friday in which she said that she would ignore anyone who criticized her desire.
“Pay no attention to those trying to belittle your ambition,”
she wrote while urging fans to subscribe to her Youtube channel.
Further reacting in the comment section of the post, a fan identified as Botarumskin drummed support for her saying,
“We are with you our world best for life. God is bigger than jealous world people.”
For years, there have been speculations about a rift between Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham which the later debunked.
