“FINALLY FOUND THE STRENGTH TO SPEAK UP AGAIN
Slightly replace: A couple of month in the past, I posted a prolonged video of my expertise working with Funke Akindele. However the video was shortly introduced down as a bid to close me up. Naturally as a content material creator, my intuition was to make one other one immediately however I couldn’t convey myself to it as a consequence of the truth that I touched on a very delicate matter (melancholy) and a few experiences I handed by way of whereas working for her which was like opening previous wounds and I wanted time to heal from that.
I’m certainly pleased and relieved that I lastly bought to make one other video by which I touched on just a few issues as a result of in truth, even when I used to be given a day I might nonetheless not be capable of cowl all of the ills not simply me however her workers face every day.
The expertise has certainly taught me that not all that glitters is gold, actually! Trying again I simply questioned how I endured a lot after we have been disadvantaged of so many issues.

I imply, how do you count on your writers to be 100% productive whenever you don’t enable them some leisure time? It didn’t take me lengthy to develop bloodshot eyes as a result of there have been daysssssssssss after we’d write all by way of the night time, no sleep. We labored underneath DURESS AND FEAR. It’s at all times concerning the script, the script is extra essential than you and your well being.
P.S – For the few who requested why my character within the YouTube collection ‘HOUSEHELPS’ was changed, properly… As a result of I selected to go away she requested that I get replaced (no surprises there). #IsurvivedFunkeAkindele #SurvivingFunke #freedom #speakingmytruth”
