Abdulrasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, has confirmed his separation from his wife, Nollywood actress Funke Akindele.
He made the announcement via his official Instagram page on Thursday.
He wrote; “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 two beautiful children.
“The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know that I Have tried my best to fix things, but I believe it is beyond repair now. Three months ago, and at Funke’s insistence, I moved out of the house, and apart from AMVCA, I 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 custody and well-being of our children which is paramount as well as business interests that need to be entangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or another – Mr. Abdul Bello.
Prior to his marriage to Akindele, Bello fathered three children from three different mothers.
Bello and Funke Akindele got married in 2016. They welcomed a set of twins on June 30 2022.
Funke also got into a shortlived marriage with businessman Adeola Kehinde Oloyede.
The marriage was contracted on 26 May 2012. The couple divorced in July 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
Three years after, Funke married Nigerian rapper JJC Skillz in London in May 2016.
