“We cant wait, our two world best” – Excitement as Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham star in epic movie ‘House of Ga’a’

Coming soon to Netflix, “House of Ga’a” features Nollywood stars Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham in a gripping historical biopic. Directed and produced by Bolanle Austen-Peters, the film delves into the true-life events of the 18th century, focusing on Bashorun Ga’a, a formidable Prime Minister/kingmaker who wielded immense power. Alongside Akindele and Abraham, the stellar cast includes Femi Branch, Mike Afolarin, Ibrahim Chatta, and many other talented actors, promising an epic cinematic experience.

Netflix announced the upcoming movie “House of Ga’a” during an International Women’s Day event on March 6th, 2024, celebrating women in the Nigerian film industry. Scheduled to air before the end of 2024, the film has sparked anticipation among fans and movie enthusiasts.

Audiences rejoiced as their favorite actresses showcased their talents in the same project. Meanwhile, a subtle rivalry is brewing on social media between Funke Akindele and Toyin Abraham, two prominent actresses turned producers, vying for dominance in the industry.

This rivalry traces back to the release of their respective movies, “Ijakumo” by Abraham and “Battle on the Buka Street” by Akindele. The tension between them became evident years ago when they began avoiding each other at events, and escalated when Akindele chose to premiere “Omo Ghetto the Saga” on the same day as Abraham’s “Ghost and the Tout.”

This clash divided fans torn between watching ‘The Ghost and The Tout’ in cinemas or staying glued to Netflix for ‘Omo Ghetto the Saga’. However, in 2023, Funke Akindele’s heartfelt messages celebrating Toyin’s 43rd birthday prompted calls for an end to the conflict. Funke Akindele’s ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ grossed N1.4 billion, while Toyin Abraham’s ‘Malaika’ earned N302 million. Fans flooded the comment section of the post featuring ‘House of Ga’a’, showering them with praise.
