Lil Win (left) and Funny Face
IT started out with anger and near fisticuffs but ended with hugs as comedic actors Funny Face and Lil Win made up on UTV‘s United Showbiz on Saturday, July 11.
The actors, who had been feuding for months now, were guests on United Showbiz hosted by actress Nana Ama McBrown and for most of the show, they were at each other’s throats, throwing accusations and counter-accusations much to the chagrin of the host and her panel members; artiste manager, Bulldog and Counsellor Adumata.
The heated argument saw Funny Face describing Lil Win as fake and a wizard who was jealous of his success. At a point, things nearly turned physical as Funny Face tried to hit Lil Win but was restrained by Bulldog, Counsellor Adumata and Nana Ama McBrown. He claimed Lil Win had said he would beat him up should they meet so he wanted the ‘Anointing’ musician to put his money where his mouth was.
When the show returned from a break, tensions had cooled down a bit and Nana Ama and the panel members asked them both to resolve the matter on the show which they did, hugging several times to show there was no bad blood.
Earlier on Sunday, Funny Face put up a post on Instagram proving the reconciliation was not fake and calling for unity.
The feud between the Funny Face, real name Benson Nana Yaw Oduro and Lil Win, born Kwadwo Nkansah, started after Lil Win said in an interview with Zionfelix months ago that Funny Face didn’t deserve to win the Favourite Actor of the Year category at the Ghana Movie Awards 2019.
Lil Win revealed that he was in the best position to win that category because he had been an active actor than Funny Face.
Funny Face didn’t take kindly to the statements and blasted him on social media. Since then they have been in a war of words on social media.
