How Funke Akindele’s Broken Marriage May Affect Her Political Ambition
It is no longer news that Funke Akindele Bello and her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, known as JJC Skilz, have parted ways over irreconcilable differences.
According to the statement released earlier this morning by JJC Skillz, he and his wife are no longer together because she had refused to settle their differences amicably even after putting on a lovely front at the 2022 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA).
“Dear Friends and family I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. 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. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funkes 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. 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
Mr Abdul Bello”
Numerous reports trailing this development have alleged both sides of been faulty in their marriage breakup saga.
Different online reports cited infidelity, ego and mismanagement of funds as the central theme of Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz’s separation.
Recall that Funke Akindele had refused to speak concerning the update released by her husband on social media. However, the actress and mother of two had maintained her husband’s surname on her Instagram profile.
One of the concerns raised by Funke Akindele’s fans was her budding political ambition.
It is unclear if her broken marriage will affect her selection as the deputy governor of Lagos state for the upcoming general elections.
Also the Jenifa’s Diary crooner was nominated alongside four others as deputy governors for the Peoples Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate for the upcoming Lagos State elections.
The shortlisted names include Funke Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa; former governorship aspirant Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour; former Senatorial candidate for Lagos East, Yeye Shobajo, another governorship aspirant, David Kolawole Vaughan known as DAKOVA, and Engr. Teslim Balogun.
At the time of this report, Funke Akindele has yet to disclose or divulge any news regarding her marriage or political ambition.

Reacting on social media, fans who were stung by the gloomy news let out their frustrations and emotions on Twitter and Instagram.
Media personality, Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze reacted on Instagram saying: “When that boy dey talk am people no hear… Na wa o”
Nollywood film maker, Samuel Jemitalo @samueljemitalo said: “Men, never marry a woman that has made it… she will never respect you 💯. Never marry a woman that is a ‘Social media Freak’… they learn things from a lot of women who don’t know the meaning of ‘Feminism’
“Never marry a woman that is full of herself, a woman that makes you feel privileged to marry her. These kind of women are grossly rude. Marry a humble, nice and born again woman.”
On Twitter, Omo Kiikan 💙💐@OmoKiikan said: “Funke Akindele marriage has crashed. Marriage is not for 2 males. As a woman if you hustle too much, you become a male in spirit, body and soul.”

On Instagram, social_connectng not perplexed posted: “We all knew it won’t last and I’m surprised they even had kids and stayed this long. No matter how supportive JJC can be, living under your wife’s shadow is extremely difficult. Especially when Funke is an Alpha herself.”
