Funke Akindele Marriage: Who Are Business Partners?

Abdulrasheed Bello, who is better known by his stage name JJC Skillz, has said that he and Nollywood actress Funke Akindele are no longer married.

Six years after they got married and there were rumours that they were splitting up, Mr Bello finally confirmed that they were no longer together in an Instagram post early Thursday morning.

Thursday morning, the music producer and filmmaker posted this on his Instagram page.

His statement said, “Dear Friends and Family, I need to tell you that Funke and I have broken up. During the time we were together, we did a lot of things together and had two beautiful children.

“It’s been hard for us for the past two years. I’ve done my best to fix things, but I think they can’t be fixed. I moved out of the house three months ago at Funke’s request. Other than the AMVCA, I haven’t been able to get Funke to sit down with me and talk about the future of our relationship.

“I’m making this public so that everyone knows we’re both going our separate ways. There are still things that need to be worked out, like the custody and well-being of our children, which is the most important thing, and business interests that need to be separated, but I have no doubt that they will be.

The actress hasn’t said anything official about the news of their split, just like she hasn’t said anything about the rumours about their troubled marriage.

It looks like history has repeated itself, just like when the actress got married to Lagos politician Kehinde Oloyede for the first time.

On his Facebook page, her ex-husband told people that they were no longer together.

On May 26, 2012, Ms Akindele married her first husband, Mr Oloyede. The couple got a divorce in July 2013 because they couldn’t get along.

The fact that the marriage didn’t work out got out when Mr Oloyede posted on Facebook that he and the actress had split up.

His Facebook post said, “It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that my wife, Mrs Olufunke Akindele, and I are getting divorced. We’ve both agreed to go our separate ways because we can’t get along.” We are still the best of friends, and we always will be.

In May 2016, Ms Akindele got married to the Nigerian rapper JJC Skillz in London.

In August 2017, her pregnancy rumours were one of the most searched topics on Google. In December 2018, they had twin boys. They also have several step-children.

Many people were happy when Funke and JJC used their skills together to start and run different businesses in the entertainment industry. However, rumours in the media say that the two had a hard time managing the money from their businesses and fought over who owns what in their different investments.

From movies to music, they both used their skills and resources to grow new areas of investment, but it doesn’t look like there are any specific rules to protect the interests of both sides.

Funke is a movie producer, but she also started a music label with the help of her husband. On his end, JJC got involved in his wife’s business, like making a TV show called “INDUSTREET.”

From what’s been said, it’s clear that doing business with your spouse might sound interesting, but if you don’t have clear rules and guidelines, it can quickly go bad.


But the actress and JJcskillz have been in the news lately because of fights with his ex-wife Mella and her outspoken step-son Benito.

Mella said that JJC Skillz hurt his son Benito Bello physically.

As payback, Mella posted a picture of her ex-husband with his new family on her Instagram page. This revealed the identity of Funke’s boys, who she and her ex-husband had been hiding from the public.

Benito Bello said that he lived with Funke and JJC for two years and that it was a horrible experience. He also said that she is not what people think she is.

Benito’s claims came right after Mella, JJC Skillz’s mother, said something bad about him. After that, JJC Skillz and Benito stopped following each other on Instagram.
