Why I ran away from Twitter after election – Funke Akindele
Funke Akindele, a well-known Nollywood actress who has transitioned into politics, has talked about why she abruptly stopped using Twitter after losing the governor’s race.
Recall that after the election, Funke Akindele, who served as Abdulazeez Adediran’s running partner for governor of Lagos State in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), erased all the political messages that had been uploaded on her social media accounts.
Funke was queried by a fan @apexproperties2 about her absence from the app.
The fan @apexproperties2 wrote, “Madam Funke, I cite you. Longest time, you ran away from us or what happened?”
Funke responded, “Dem too dey insult people on this app, so I stay off.”
In a similar trend, another user @Odun_is_my_name under the comments section asked if Akindele was afraid of the people.
@Odun_is_ my_ name wrote: “Are you afraid of people?”
Funke answered: “No I’m not afraid. I’m just careful.”
