Actress Funke Akindele And Siblings Reportedly Absent At Their Father's Burial

Funke Akindele-Bello and her siblings were all absent at their late father's funeral which held over the weekend.




According to the reports, the movie star and her siblings were conspicuously absent during the laying in state which took place at Ikorudu in Lagos state.


The Bishop Methodist Church Nigeria , Diocese of Ikorodu, Rt. Rev Samson Osundina  expressed his disappointment with the actress and her siblings over their absence at their father's funeral.

While delivering the burial sermon, Rev. Osundina thanked the children for taking care of their father during the times when he was ill but stressed the fact that paying him the last respect as children were very important and significant.

He enjoined them to retrace their steps by making amends wherever necessary. He then suspended the usual outing and thanksgiving service which are final programs in Christian’s burial, till the deceased’s children are available to attend.

Funke Akindele had announced the death of her father in December 2019.

*Na wah.............There must be a reason why all of them were absent.....
If only Funke had not announced his demise no one would have monitored whether she attended his burial or not...it is obvious the man was not in their lives...
Hmmmmmmm

    3. Did you read the tags she attached to the captions.?If she didn’t announce it blogs would carry it and troll her for being silent on her fathers death.if you read the tags she attached to the announcement you would understand that something is not right

    4. What about their mum was she there too, no child or children will do this without a cogent reason and the man was even a Rev in Methodists church. Families and problems every where.

    5. So what? Is called respect. Irrespective of what the man must have done to them and for her to have announced his death. Death is inevitable and she should have paid him a last respect. Is called respect

    6. Anon 21:53, respect, even the last one, is EARNED and RECIPROCAL. If the bishop isn't a hypocrite, he should have waded in while Funke's father was alive, not banning people from thanksgiving they would have skipped anyway. Parents, receive sense to be responsible today. Treating your children harshly then expecting them to gather at you're bedside and funeral because of fear of curses or Shame does not work anymore, even in Nigeria. Do right while you have time.

    2. As a monogamist that she is naw abi ? For someone that was a co-wife in her first and second marriages, she has no right to question the man's preferences.

  4. Na wa o. Even if Funke had not posted the demise of her Dad on her page, those present at his burial would still have known that she and her siblings were not there.

    People always look out for the children.

    Funke and her siblings no try.

  6. It’s shocking. No matter what their dad did, they should have been there to pay their last respect.

    3. are you minding the judginas....no matter what yen yen yen, yet they do worse things and justify it. my 40 something years in this life has taught me that only him who where the shoes knows where it pinches. till they come out to tell us their part then we can judge and call them petty.

  7. I believe something spiritual went on and the church went ahead without them
    If they did not attend who fixed the burial?

    1. You're very right... It has to do with that church.

    2. Apparently the chur h planned the burial without involving them.

    3. I disagree with this, Methodist church agree with family on fixing dates, church doesn't fix date,moreso the man in question is a minister of MCN. It's not spiritual in anyway or has anything to do with church

  8. It is well o..whatever be the issue, they should at least giving him that last respect

  11. Who organised the burial?. Why didn't the children attend? Is it the family that buried the man or does he have another wife cos i can't understand how the burial could even hold in the absence of the children. What role did the church play?. There are questions to be answered. Only then can we understand what happened. Until then i'm just watching.

    1. No matter what happened behind closed doors, as long as the corpse of the man was there. The children should have attended. No excuse. This is one of such. Do you know how many family dramas there are, people just still show up. No excuse.

    2. 15:21, when it's others you can give your unsolicited opinions. Wait till it happens to you since you can't empathise with others.

  12. This is strange. Who then fixed the burial and did the arrangements?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Stella, the man was not absent in their life! It is more of a spiritual something. I want to assume it is something that also has to do with the church.

    If you dig deeper, you will get the amebo news.

    Funke was in Dubai while her father was being buried.

    They will definitely host another burial ceremony for their father when they are ready.

    3. OK I get you. May be the church and siblings didn't agree on a date .

    4. Do their own Burial abi? by cooking rice, aso ebi, inviting celebs with all the shenanigans?? They have missed the important part, which is paying the dead the last respect. Whatever they do afterwards will be a total waste!!

  14. Thank God you guys called it "last respect " what if the person didn't earn it????? Don't judge till you hear the full story. You didn't wear the shoe, you don't even know the colour.

    1. God bless you! I know a man whose children refused to have anything to do with his funeral. When we asked and they told us what he put them through, we concluded that it would have been better for them not to be born. I stopped judging after that.

    2. No wear the shoe or not, as a child one of ur duties is to bury ur parents no matter the condition or circumstance. Them no try. Lets call a spade a spade. It is inexcusable

  17. I think this is a church thing. Maybe the church and the family had misunderstanding with the date fixing. The man was a Rev. so na church get responsibility of the corpse. My thoughts tho

  20. They are not the first, even if church planned it, how did they get consent for the man's body and bury the man. They should have ignored all drama. People saying we don't know what happened, how many of you are from perfect drama free homes? I am sure you attend relatives wedding, burial and so on. No excuse.

  25. People will be saying, "No matter what happened..." to bully others into their own idea of propriety. Everybody should tolerate abuse cos that is your normal. It's the reason some of you are facing avoidable problems - you've gone to invoke demons into your lives when you went to your village to "give to Caesar" what you had no business, touching. The same way some women who are married to weak men from crazy families, can't even say "pim" in the presence of their MIL or SIL, are angry that Harry Husband Goals stood up publicly for his wife.

    If none of the children attended, they were not involved in the planning. So, people think it's normal for a church to just fix burial and expect the children to attend to "save face"? If the church really respected the man, couldn't they have worked in consultation with his adult children? Y'all think it's everything sane people drag on the 'gram? They will just ignore you, pretend you and what you did don't exist & you will be the one granting 20 interviews everyday.

    As for parents that behave anyhow, just continue cos Africa. The same Bible that says children should honour, said parents should not annoy. Some of you got pregnant out of wedlock and did quick wedding to the wrong man you knowingly pinned it on - na spiritual problems, medical issues or visa application dey expose some of una lies, years after you think you've gotten away with what you did. Then, it becomes "the work of the devil". If they ever introduce compulsory paternity test as a requirement to enrol children in school, we go see how many marriages in Naija go survive.

  27. you people are calling the church? who deposited his corpse to the mortuary? you can't go there to take away his corpse if you are not the one. how old is funke and other of her siblings? They are not kids. is funke perfect? if not for anything for bringing you into the world. just give him that last respect because you are not going to see him again.They will come back to do party for him because that is the only thing they are good at. I know one woman always feeding their kids with lies that she is the one taking care of the family because the hubby used to give her money for everything and now she wants to take all the Glory. some women can brainwash her children against their father which is wrong.

  28. some people will be pointing finger on fathers alone forgetting we have them as mothers. maybe some of those men were good father but once they are down financiaaly , the woman will turn children against there father because she is the one bringing money with other ones men are given her. Not easy for a man if he doesn't have money but not the same for women. funke abi whatever she calls herself should go and bury her father.

    1. Many fathers are good fathers... I know something that is very common in Yoruba land. The man will sponsor the kids and feed the children without complaining, immediately the money stops coming either because the man lost his job or he's attacked by a sudden ailment and the woman takes over, the father suddenly is treated with no atom of respect and tagged a deadbeat dad.

      I have seen with my eyes and heard enough with my ears. I can never be fool by social media noise and false assumptions.

    3. Funke Akindele's father was a loving and caring father.
      He was our vice principal in secondary school.His Children,Funke and Bunmi lived with him in the quarter because the school was and stil isba boarding school.
      My family and I had a good relationship with bj them.
      That man was a good man.
      May God's judgment be upon all that came between this wonderful man and his children.
      God bv rest your soul Mr Akindele.

    4. Yeah, a few people I know went to that school and the man was actively involved in their lives just like anon 21.55 said.

      Let us not add lies to it because we want to score cheap points or paint all men bad.

  32. Funke's late dad was our vice principal back in the days at lagos state model college igbokuta, ikorodu. She loved her dad and was damn close to him. Whatever must have happened afterwards, God knows

  33. My mom's children weren't present at my late Dad's burial. I wasn't even aware he had passed away untill some months after his burial. He wasn't a father to us at all. My mom died cause of what he did to her. I was 9 when my mum died and 13 when he died. We might not understand why they weren't present at his burial but I believe no grateful child will miss out on an opportunity to pay his/her last respect. Except he never did anything worth being grateful for...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Will not express an opinion on this until I know the full story. There has to be very cogent and concrete reasons why a man's children will not show up at his funeral. For a child or two to be absent is understandable. But for all the children to be absent: there's more to this story abeg.

  35. Pls don't judge anyone cos some men are horrible, I swear never to give my deadbeat sperm donor father a dime, I won't even contribute 10kobo if he die that man is evil pacified and he didn't have any remorse for what he did, to him he feels he can come anytime and say sorry and we will forgive and forget while he still went behind my back to the father of my kids to encourage him never contribute a dime to the care of his grandchildren just like him, he even bragged that he is enjoying things from his children ( excluding me) even after 21yrs of absenteeism. I hate him with my blood
