Controversy

In June 2022, KieKie was accused of mocking Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele-Bello, over her failed marriage.

KieKie had made a video at that time where she stated, “This is how you dance when they serve the person that served you breakfast.

However, this didn’t go well with some of her fans who feel she was mocking the actress.

In response to the allegation, KieKie replied in a post by saying “Listen, I know it might be difficult for some people to understand, but some of us didn’t build our brand on or around clouts”

“People have worked tirelessly for years to be where they are today. So please, respect that.

“Some of us also don’t pick on other people’s issues for attention purposes. I personally don’t offer my 2cent on people’s matters simply because it is not my matter.

“I’m not a relative, so my opinion does not count. Also because I believe an opinion can be valid if you have all the information regarding the said matter.

“Now, how do you have that from the internet point of view?

“I know some people might be shocked, but people who live by the fear of God still exist.“If you’re too shallow to comprehend that, then seek understanding or shut up. It’s that simple.”
