Following the separation of actress Funke Akindele and her husband, film producer JJC Skillz, a number of rumors have emerged regarding the former marriage.
One of them came from his former publicist, who claimed that the ex-couple took advantage of one another.
The former publicist claimed that the couple’s failing marriage was the result of a transaction while speaking out about it.
He claimed that JJC Skillz wanted a platform for success whereas Funke Akindele merely wanted children, like Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz’s unsuccessful marriage.
He claimed that the couple had never truly fallen in love because they were more like business partners.
“FUNKE AKINDELE MARRIAGE AND BELLO’S MARRIAGE WAS NEVER A REAL MARRIAGE, IT WAS ACTUALLY JUST A TRANSACTION. REMEMBER THE CASE OF TEE BILLZ AND TIWA SAVAGE BACK THEN, TEEBILLZ WAS A MARRIED MAN WHO LEFT HIS MARRIAGE FOR TIWA BECAUSE SHE WAS THE TALENT AND HE SAW HER AS A GOLDMINE.
THAT WAS WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN FUNKE AND JJC SKILLZ. FUNKE HAD A PROBLEM GETTING MARRIED AND HAVING KIDS AND JJC SKILLZ CAME UNTIL THE SCENE PRACTICALLY FOR BUSINESS PURPOSES L AND AS A UK BOY THAT IS WISE, HE PLAYED ALONG.
FUNKE ONLY WANTED KIDS, WHICH SHE HAS GOTTEN. THERE WAS NEVER TRUE LOVE. BOTH OF THEM FAKED REALITY, THEY KNEW THERE WAS NOTHING REAL GOING ON BETWEEN THEM. THEY ONLY WANTED EACH OTHER BUT DIDN’T NEED EACH OTHER.
JJC SKILLZ IS A CINEMATOGRAPHER AND SCRIPTWRITER AND FUNKE NEEDED HIM TO BUILD HER BRAND”.
Also,a lot of netizens have opined that without his marriage to Funke Akindele, JJC Skillz wouldn’t be where he is today because his music career was already dead.
Addressing them all, JJC Skillz took to his Instagram story to share a video of Funmi Obadeyi hyping him.
Funmi described JJC as one of the Afrobeats pioneer.
“JJC IS ONE OF THE AFROBEAT PIONEER. MOST OF THE NEW GENERATION KIDS DON’T KNOW THIS”.
