EXCLUSIVE: Funmi Awelewa, Shai Others At War Of Words Over Leaked BlackBerry Broadcast Message

By  |  6 Comments


Sometimes you just cannot but muse about what goes on between our thespians in Nollywood. Apparently, the dramas they put up on the screen for us to see, are simply satirical of what goes on behind the scene in their private lives.

Few days ago some interesting Broadcast Message hit our phones; the content of the BC obviously was a personal chat between Funmi Awelewa and one Muhydeen who is the supposed PA of prolific filmmaker Anta Laniyan. The chat was a supposed backbit about a fellow actress Seyi Edun aka Shai

The content of the BC reads in bit;

Funmi awelewa:                            Good morning
Funmi awelewa:                              How was ur night?
★lo:            Morning
★lo:            Comfortable nd urs
Funmi awelewa:                              Fine
Funmi awelewa:                              Could u bliv Richie told Shai abt wat we discuss wiv him dat day
Funmi awelewa:                              Dat guy is stupid
Funmi awelewa:                              Shai mentioned it wen she was talking to Tope
★lo:            Wich day
Funmi awelewa:                              Ni iwaju hotel yen


The Broadcast was mistakenly leaked by Muhydeen and then rebroadcasted by another actress Omolara Samuel.

Prior to the ‘chat and mistaken broadcast’, Funmi Awelewa and Muhydeen had met on the location of a movie in Ibadan and had talked about Shai in front of another actor Richie. Funmi alleged that Shai said popular film Marketer “HYBEE” is bad deal for business. They said he doesn’t pay his producers, even after, making so much return from the released film.

Funny enough like everyone else the same Shai that was talked about got the BC and rebroadcasted with an initial quote “ Hmmmm God go dey expose una one by one…..Bring it on fake people everywhere”

Funmi Awelewa was quick to hit back at her, see her comment;


SHAI, Biko stop creating Nuisance nd sit ur fucking Ass Down. I am not a fool nd am not ready for stupid drama! U all motherfucker re sending d bc like OMOLARA SAMUEL nd co. I will advice u to read d conversation again nd again. I am not here to please anyone, if u ar not happy wiv d way am living my life pls kindly save me d stress by deleting ursef. @arewa_awelewa”


We contacted Shai  to get her reaction to the story, ” My brother, i really don’t want to be a party to this kind of thing. I thought Funmi was my friend, i’m surprised she could go about peddling false stories about me. I’ve been in this industry for about 10 years now, Funmi came in just yesterday, i wont have her get cheap fame through me. This is not the first time she is offending me, and i reported her to Ibrahim Chatta.”

When we contacted Funmi Awelewa, her phone line was switched off and we dropped a text on her line;

“Hello Funmi, we are investigating a story linking you with your colleagues Shai and Muhydeen, we would love to get your side of the story.  Thanks.”
