Funke Akindele’s Marriage Crashes As JJC Skillz Announces Their Separation

Published

on

Nigerian artiste and producer Abdul Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, and famous actress Funke Akindele have separated.

JJC made the announcement via his Instagram page Thursday. He admitted that the marriage has been having issues for two years.

JJC Skills confirmed that Funke Akindele asked him to leave her house and has refused any form of amicable communication with him.

According to him, their marriage is now beyond repairs and at the time of making the announcement he is looking at how they can co parent with ease and manage their joint business.

“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,” stated JJC. “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.”

He added, “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.”

There were claims of infidelity and tension in their marriage last April when the ‘We are Africans’ crooner’s son Benito took to social media saying that JJC and step-mom, Funke, were not living together.

Benito also accused Funke of maltreating him, JJC and her staff.

“The only rock that stays steady and the only institution I know that works is marriage… London is cool, but I’m missing home @funkejenifaakindele my love have loads of fun with the children. See you soon at home,” JJC had said in apparent attempt to debunk Benito’s claims.

The couple married in May 2016. They are married with children.

Why MohBad Was Quickly Buried – Father

Published

By

Joseph Aloba, the father of Mohbad, has explained why he quickly buried his son who passed away at the age of 27 on September 12, with the burial taking place the following day.

In a recent interview shared by Temilola Sobola (@TemilolaSobola) via Instagram on Tuesday, Aloba said that in Yoruba culture, it is “customary not to keep a deceased person’s body for long if both parents are alive”.

He said if Mohbad had passed away at an older age, he might have considered putting him in a mortuary.

He also said the land where the singer was laid to rest was his sole property, adding that he had given it to him to build a church.

“In Yoruba land, his corpse is not the kind to be kept when both of his parents are still alive,” he said.

“Assuming he died at an older age, we might have considered putting his body in the mortuary and taking it at a later date. That same night we took him away from there and buried him where we did.

“That land where Mohbad was buried is his only land, that is the only land I know him to have owned.

“Truly he gave me the land to build my church because we had both agreed to build the church there and since that’s the only land I knew him to have.”

On September 14, Aloba revealed that Mohbad had passed away after receiving an injection administered by an auxiliary nurse.

He also urged the public not to blame Naira Marley, Mohbad’s former label boss, for his son’s death.

Mohbad, a former record label signee of Marlian Music owned by Naira Marley, left the label in February 2022.

The management of Mohbad, on Monday, announced a candlelight procession and tribute night for the late artiste Thursday (tomorrow) while the Lagos State Governor, on Wednesday, invited the Department of Security Services to join the probe of late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos, has involved the Department of State Services (DSS) in the ongoing investigation into Mohbad’s death.

The police earlier mentioned the possibility of exhuming Mohbad’s corpse.
