Abraham has come out to clear the air. Speaking, the mother of one had this to say;

“She is my senior colleague and she is someone I respect a lot; so, I do not know what people are talking about, trust me.

“Sometimes, people do not understand that we are colleagues and not family. So, you cannot be talking to all your colleagues.

“We talk, we follow each other.”

Abraham went on to state that it is pivotal for her fans and followers to disregard derogatory comments that often surface on social media.

She continued;

“If I see her, I will kneel down and say, ‘Aunty Funke se wa okay?’.

A lot of people do not understand that we are working in the same space; we do not have to be close friends.
When we see ourselves we greet each other.
Forget social media, trust me.”
