Her outburst on the mother of four was because critics were silent on the top the star actress wore, which showed a bit of her stomach. She claimed her friend, Bimbo Thomas, also a top actress in the Yoruba movie industry was lambasted for wearing a swimsuit at a beach in Miami.
Funke said in her message on her social media platform that what Omotola wore was not befitting a mother of four and that she should have left such outfit for her daughter, who coincidentally wore a similar style of dress to the same event.
Speaking with Punch when contacted, Funke explained why she took on Omotola, stressing that she is not jealous of the multiple award-winning actress.
“She has not told me that she feels bad about what I wrote. I don’t see why anybody should cry more than the bereaved. It wasn’t out of malice that I said what I said and of course, I am not jealous of her. I can never be jealous of anybody,” Funke told Punch.
