JJC Skillz Says It Was Love At First Sight With Wife Funke Akindele

Singer, producer and video director, AbdulRasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz, talks about his career and marriage to popular actress and producer, Funke Akindele-Bello.





As an entertainer, what has marriage changed about you?


It has made me more focused. It has also given me more stability and peace of mind.


You once said that you were wary of any kind of emotional attachment, why did you decide to get married to Funke Akindele?


In life, when you find the right person, nobody needs to tell you to settle down. It is like finding God; you may be a bad boy in the club today, and the next day, you’re in front of the church shouting ‘Halleluyah.’ Nobody can determine when that change will happen, and I’m very happy that it has happened to me.


How did you meet your wife?

She had an idea called Jenifa’s Diary that she wanted to do, and she was looking for a good director and cameraman, so she called me to help her shoot the TV series, and that was how we met.


Was it love at first sight?

Absolutely, it was an instant connection. In fact, it was love at first sight. I saw her,she saw me and, we saw stars. From that point on, everything was aligned.


What were the qualities you saw in her that made you know she is the one?


Ask every single man that is married, they will tell you the same thing. It is the same qualities that everybody wants.


So what are those qualities?


To be honest, I do not want to talk about my personal life. My wife is my baby and I cherish her a lot. If I start giving you all the secrets, people may want to snatch her from me.


Even if you do not tell us all, just give us a sneak peek…


The truth is I work really hard all the time, and a lot of the people I dated in the past used to complain that I did not devote time to them. But now, I have found my better-half who works as hard as I do, so it is a perfect combination, and the world is in trouble because we are the perfect team. As I am playing music, she is making me laugh. We have the perfect synergy, and what we are working on right now will blow people’s minds away. And I want to advise people in the entertainment industry to go and look for their better-half within the same industry, because it will give you more focus and direction.



But many people feel inter-marriages in the entertainment industry do not work, can you share some of what you have discovered that can help them?


Pray to God for direction because I did a lot of prayers and God answered. Different things work for different people. All I know is that God has given me what works for me.

People here saying he is after her money obviously dont know jjc skillz. He started off large with the u.k group big brovaz (I've been a fan since 2002,you can check them out on youtube, my best song is nu flow).

Released many hit songs with the 419 squad around 2004 (jjc and 419 squad: atide, jekalo, kilonsele, birthday song, etc)

Then came to naija a while back and everybody was jamming to his song (we are africans...africans ahoo)

I don't know him, never even met him, but I've been a huge fan (even way before the jenifa movie), so it sucks to see people try to refer to him as a gold digger.

What ever rocks their boat. I wish them marital bliss.
Then by the power in the blood of Jesus, I cancel, revoke, render null & void that prophecy from the pit of hell over Funke's reproductive system. Chai wickedness in high places. It will not come to pass by the authority in the name that is above all names, JESUS CHRIST.

code009 said...

Well, am happy Funke is happy. Jenifa's dairy is a huge success so am happy. He got grown up kids and I pray she gets a chance to be a mum.
He is a fine man too.

Jjc what u actually mean is dat u fell in luv at d first sight of her acct.balance and also took advantage of d fact dat age is not on funke's side she was desperate at d time.dis marriage will only last 4 as long as funke is ready 2 continue feeding,paying d bills and tolerating his womanizing ways.jjc is a brokeass who was into all kinds of fraud in d uk.Imagine relocating 2 9ja after marrying funke 2 live in funke's newly bought house,dat alone is enof proof dat he had nothing doing abroad.funke and jjc is another tiwa and tblizz waiting 2 happen.seems yoruba women ve bad taste in men.

Anon10:59 ur head dey their.broke JJC who is into credit card fraud in d UK.funke knows d guy reputation is not a good one dat is y d whole relo/marriage was shrouded in secrecy. Funke is desperate cos age is no longer on her side.she is already in her 40s so I won't really blame her.dat is y she is using her money 2 pet him knowing fully well JJC is a chronic womanizer,so dat he does not cheat.but truth is,it is only a matter of time,he will still cheat on her,d worst part is dat he will use her money 2 chase other gals.so all these while,with all d money funke has made,she did not think of buying a house,but imediately she married JJC,she imediately bought a house so dat he can follow her back 2 9ja.so dat he can be under her watchful eyes.since she knows dude is a womanizer.who knows maybe dat was d condition JJC gave her 4 him 2 return 3 9ja.

Awwwww love is beautiful,I wish u both all the best.

jumia said...

But sincerely, people don't really have a life. Why can't anyone think if the possibility of him actually loving her? In fact, I think she appears happier than she's even been since she got married to him. If he's giving her happiness, I don't care. And all of you talking about how he's been seeing her on TV b4 claiming it was love at first sight, what if it's true? Stop fishing for errors and inconsistencies in people's lives and actually sincerely wish them the best. He might not have been living large before he met her but he wasn't a pauper. He has kids on the US and has or had a music career,and in my opinion, that makes him an above average Nigerian. Shebi you people went with them to pay for the house and that's why you guys know it's her house. So many hate comments! Yes, he saw the naira and dollar signs. Leave them alone and let them be happy together. Mr and Miss dollar signs... People with no joy

Thank you my sister! You get sense wella!

The first time I saw JJC, I knew he is a good guy.

If you want to know a good guy, look at the eye. The eye tells it all.

I love both of them

I don't know why most people are saying "he took advantage of the fact that funke is desperate" y'all obviously don't know her.... The fact that he didn't get it right with others doesn't mean he won't get it right with her, y'all should stop being kill-joys and wish them well.... He makes her happy and vice versa, that should be the most important thing here!!

Jjc and Funke, stop granting interviews about your marriage, keep being private!! When you are in love, it's not easy to hide these things but please, make it stop.... I love you guys together and I just believe that you guys would last longer than people expect!!! 😘😘😘😘

Cookie said...

Who told you Funke solely bought the house?? Na wa oooooo

The house is leased not bought. Those houses are not for sale. You can do a 10 year lease if you have the money.

Don't mind them. The guy made that "Big Brovs" group very popular in the UK back then. He's been making hits and money even b4 Don jazzy and D'banj. By the way, those two passed through him back then in London. The guy has money in Pounds not naira sef

jumia said...

Anon 17:40, it wasn't the fact that Maje was cheating that pushed Toke to talk, it was the fact that it was no longer private. Funke Akindele could walk out of a 'mentally and psychologically abusive marriage' less than a year after they got married, does she seem like the type that'd fake it?

Funke isn't Toke, she doesn't live for approval and isn't an attention whore: that's the difference between them. Funke Akindele's first wedding was a big society wedding and she didn't consider the shame b4 walking out on her ex hubby, you think she'd hesitate is JJC turns out to be bad too? She's living! Taking each day as it comes and living in the moment. Until she says something is happening that suggests otherwise, I think we should all just pray for them.

Anonymous said...

just ignore them, JJC hit fame long b4 jenifa and he is definitely not broke.
