“Friendship? I think my siblings are my friends. They are my friends. I have acquaintances, people that I’m cordial with, but not serious friendships like that. Because I’m always busy working. And when I’m not working, I’m sleeping, chilling with the kids, watching a movie, chilling with the family.

I like being in my space. I don’t really like going to parties, I’m not a party animal. I don’t like it at all. I run a studio, we film every year – we have content on YouTube, movies at cinemas, and on streaming platforms. I’m very busy. So I just get busy with work and my children, because I need to give them time. So when I’m not working, I’m with my children. I’m in my space.

In the industry, I have cordial relationships with people in the industry. I love working with some particular people. I work with all my colleagues, but some are so dear to my heart. I have a team, my crew members. And for my colleagues, I have cordial relationships with everybody.”

When asked about Eniola Badmus specifically, with whom she used to be very close, Funke Akindele gave an update on their relationship, saying:

“Eniola Badmus makes me laugh. She cracks me up so much. I love to chill with her. But, we’ve been so busy with life. Everybody is doing their thing. But I’m still cordial with her, and everybody.”

Funke Akindele further elaborated on how her busy schedule and family commitments have influenced her social interactions. She highlighted that her primary focus has always been on her work and family, leaving little time for maintaining close friendships. She mentioned that her preference for staying indoors and spending quality time with her children and family has shaped her approach to friendships and socializing.

Despite her busy lifestyle, Funke Akindele emphasized the importance of maintaining a supportive and positive environment for her children. She expressed her dedication to balancing her career and family life, ensuring that she is present for her children while managing her professional responsibilities. This balance, she noted, has contributed to her limited social interactions outside of her immediate family and work circle.

Overall, Funke Akindele’s reflections on her friendships and relationships offer insight into the challenges of balancing fame, family, and personal connections in the entertainment industry. Her focus on family, work, and maintaining cordial relationships with colleagues underscores her commitment to creating a harmonious and fulfilling life for herself and her loved ones.
