Olayode Juliana,popularly known as Toyo Baby, says people who do not understand the relationship she had with her former employer, should not tag her a proud person.
In a post on her website, the actress best known for her role in Jenifa’s Diary, TV series produced by Funke Akindele-Bello, said she left the series in May 2016 after she had a misunderstanding with Funke Akindele.
“I used ‘had’ and would be talking in past tense because like you know, I am presently not on the Jenifa’s Diary series. And guess what? The news just broke lately, but I.I was privileged to be the one holding Aunty Funke’s bag while on set. I ‘kept’ the money we spent on day-to-day running and was required to balance account afterwards. “I lived with Aunty Funke while set was on, so I counted it my duty to clean the house. She lived in a duplex at Chevron at that time, so I cleaned the entire house. Sweeping and..click 3 below to continue..moping from room to room.Scrubbing bathroom after bathroom. I arranged wardrobe after wardrobe, laid one bed after another. You would not know any of these if I am not saying this. I did all this with joy. She was special to me and you serve those you love.”
The actress also explained how she did make up on some occasions on set of Jenifa’s Diary, washed clothes for her boss and massaged her on occasions when the latter was tired.
“We had a misunderstanding and I cannot disclose what happened without Aunty Funke’s permission. But if you read all I said in the post, you would gather that we were quite close. And when two people get that close, misunderstandings are bound to occur.”
