Popular music producer, Abdul Rasheed Bello, a.k.a JJC Skillz has revealed that he never knew that his actress wife, Funke Akindele was a movie star before they started dating.
In an interview, he also addressed the issue that has been rumoured severally by many that he married Funke Akindele to revive his fading music career.
He disclosed that he was never a fan of Nigerian movie not even his wife’s series, Jenifa’s diary.
According to JJC Skillz, he believed that it was the right time for him and Funke to be together and that’s why they are happily married irrespectives of their successful career.
“she has been successful in her career, and I also have been fortunate to be successful in my career. Most importantly, when it’s right for two people to be together, they will be together. It’s not somethng that I thought about or even planned that will happen. To be honest, I didn’t know who Funke Akindele was, I grew up in London so I never watched the Jenifa movie, I never watched Nigerian films, I was a Hollywodd person. It was after Funke and I started dating, that I actually sat down to watch the Jenifa movie,” he explained.
However the couple seems to be doing perfectly fine together as they are expecting their first child soon from the union after a year.
