Funke Akindele and JJC Skillz’s marriage has crashed


Filmmaker and rapper, JJC Skillz, has announced the end of his marriage to his wife, Funke Akindele-Bello.

JJC Skillz, who had in April denied reports of his marriage crisis, confirmed the development in a post on his Instagram page.

He said the last two years had been extremely difficult for them.

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 2 beautiful children. The last two years have been extremely difficult for us.

”I know I have tried my best to fix things, but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funke’s 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.

”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.”

It was recently reported that Nollywood actors Funke Akindele and Daniel K. Daniel were invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the organisers of the Oscars.

Since 2016, the body has been expanding its membership to women, the underrepresented and people from other races as part of its plan to promote diversity.


Last year,  the invitation was sent to 395 artists and executives which comprise 46% of women, 39% of underrepresented ethnic/racial communities, and 53% of internationals from 49 countries outside of the United States. There were 89 Oscar nominees, including 25 winners, among the invitees.

However, this year, the total number of invitees is 397, and 44% are women, 37% belong to underrepresented ethnic/racial communities, and 50% are from 53 countries and territories outside the United States.  There are 71 Oscar nominees, including 15 winners, among the invitees.

Yesterday, it was reported that Funke Akindele was nominated as PDP Deputy for Lagos Governorship Candidate.
