Why I don’t see divorce from JJC as failure – Funke Akindele

Funke Akindele

Funke Akindele, the acclaimed Nigerian filmmaker and actress, achieved a historic milestone earlier this year by breaking the record for the highest grossing Nollywood movie.

Her film amassed over 1 billion Naira at the box office, a remarkable accomplishment coveted by many in the industry. Despite her numerous triumphs, Funke has also faced setbacks in her personal life, including two failed marriages.

However, in a recent interview with Joyce on Wazobia, Funke Akindele candidly discussed these so-called “failures” and explained why she does not perceive them as such.

Funke Akindele said:


“If you don’t fail, you can’t be successful. You have to keep trying. Like when a child is trying to walk, the child will walk small and just fall off. So it’s normal for you to fall but you just have to pick yourself and rise again.


For me, I see failure, I see challenges, I see obstacles, as part of life. My mum raised me like that. My mum will say if you do not fail, if you do not fall, you cannot succeed. So you have to keep going. And note, I do not even see the failures.

If you ask me now can you tell me one failure, I don’t see it as a failure. My personal life – marriage, I just take it as it comes. My mental health is very important. My career is very important, darling. I have to make an impact. I have to empower a lot of people. I have to inspire young people out there. I have to stay strong for my children and my siblings. Why am I living? I have a purpose, so my head is up. Yes I cry, yes I break down, but after I cry, I just look in the mirror and say “keep moving”.
