Bello, also known as Jenifa for the famous movie character she popularized, tweeted on her handle @funkeakindele “I just watched the clip now. She is obviously a liar who needs attention. How can she say she doesn’t know Falz and Banky W.’’

During her diary session, Gifty said she doesn’t know any of these celebrities.
