Nollywood actress Funke Akindele and her spouse Abdul Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, have separated.
JJC Skillz announced this on his Instagram page on Thursday, June 30, 2022.
“Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated, he wrote. “While it lasted we shared a lot of things together and have created 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us,” he added.
“I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funke’s insistence I moved out of the house and apart from AMVCA have not been able to get Funke to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship.”
The veteran rapper stated that he decided to disclose their split to let the world know that they are already pursuing their own lives.
“I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other, “Skillz concluded.
Their marriage has been said to be in trouble for some time. Funke and JJC came separately at the latest AMVCA award ceremony, but sat together and even walked on stage together to accept an award won by Funke.
JJC’s son, Benito, has also hinted on social media that the marriage is in trouble. Funke and JJC Skillz married in August 2016, and they welcomed twins in 2018.
