'It is beyond repair' - Funke Akindele's husband announces marriage crash

Abdul Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, who is the husband of popular Nigerian actress, Funke Akindele, has announced that the two have decided to separate.


JJC made the announcement on his Instagram page, June 30, 2022.

In the post JJC Skillz said he has been living outside their home for three months now as they are not living as couples anymore.

“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. Three 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.”

JJC Skillz is a Nigerian songwriter, rapper, record and television producer. He earned recognition in Nigeria after the release of his single We Are Africans, an afrobeat anthem.
