Ever since her first marriage to Kehinde Oloyede broke up in 2013, not much has been heard about the love life of one of Nigeria’s sweethearts, Funke Akindele.
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, the actress said that she intentionally shielded her private life from the public because of what she faced during her first failed marriage. She said,
“I really don’t like discussing about my private life anymore because it pays to keep that part of your life secret. A lot of people are watching and sometimes you read a lot of negative comments about you which could make you want to derail, so it is better to keep matters of the heart close to the heart. I am the one in it and I know what is good for me. I am sorry I don’t want to talk about anything that has to do with my private life.”
However, it seems her new found love, popular rap artiste, JJC Skill, does not share her opinion going by the Snapchat videos of her posts on the social media.
Although the duo are currently in the United Kingdom, last week, the rap caused a stir when he posted some snapchat pictures of his kids on the dining table and just before the video ended, the camera faced Funke Akindele, who seemed to be in her pyjamas.
Before the dust could settle on the snapchat video that had everyone talking, the rap artiste posted another video earlier this week. This time, it featured his mother praying for a delighted Funke Akindele.
One of the prayer points was that the actress would be blessed with the fruit of the womb and she would provide her with good grandchildren. Beaming with smiles from one ear to another, the actress eagerly said amen in the short video.
The actress is currently on vacation and it seems she is spending a lot of time with the musician.
When Saturday Beats reached the actress camp to confirm if the pair were an item, her publicist, Biodun Kupoluyi, said that Funke and JJC had been friends for a long time and they still maintained that friendship.
“Two of them have been friends for a long time and they still remain close friends. They have been helping each other’s career for a while,” he said.
