It’s barely 24 hours the unfortunate news broke, about the break up between famous Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele and her husband, JJC Skillz, born Abdul Bello.
Recall that on Thursday, June 30, Nigerians woke up to a post, shared via JJC Skillz’s verified Instagram page, where he announced that he and Funke Akindele have finally called it quits in their 6-year-old marriage, which produced twin boys.
However, sources have come out with some reports on what contributed to the crisis in Funke and JJC Skillz’s marriage, leading to the decision to split from each other.
According to the sources, Funke Akindele and Mr Abdul Bello endured seven (7) trials within the six (6) years of their marriage, and the trials include,
- Child birth controversy/Prophecy
“A year after their marriage, founder of Mountain of Blessing and Miracle Church of Christ, Dr. Olagorioye Faleyimu, revealed that Funke wont have a child before she dies. But with deep prayers, this can be reversed. She is destined to be wealthy and famous but not destined to have a child and stable husband until she engages herself in the special prayer. Whosoever marries her must have another reason because the issue of not having a child will keep coming up and it will scatter the marriage.
- Surrogacy/Child birth saga
Barely two months after the couple’s twins arrived, speculations emerged on how the actress got pregnant and the eventual birth of the twins.
- Breaking COVID-19 protocols
“Funke and JJC Skillz were arraigned before a Lagos court on Monday, April 6, 2020, for defying the orders of the Lagos state government which had banned social gatherings and ordered residents to stay at home”.
- Physical Assault To Son
“JJC Skillz was accused of physically assaulting one of his sons by his ex, Mella in a post via her Instagram handle. While you parade yourself on social media pretending with fake piety to be the main character in an aspirational story, the son that you assaulted and inflicted grievous bodily harm upon is still recovering from his physical injuries and mental trauma”.
- Break up allegations
“There have been numerous allegations that the duo have gone their separate ways in the past years. Moreso, the rumours speculated that Funke is not supporting her husbands new TV project among others and that their marriage has indeed endured tough times”.
- Leave The House
“JJC Skillz revealed that about three months ago, Funke asked her husband to leave her house and he complied. This reason for her action is however not known”.
- Final Straw
“Amid all of the alleged breakups comes the straw that broke the camel’s back as JJC Skillz announced that they’ve walked their separate ways. Bello via his verified Instagram account announced to his friends and fans that he and the multiple award-winning actress has called it quits with their marriage. He, however, locked the comment section of the post”.
Meanwhile, another report claims that the above assertions were put out as a distraction to one of the Nigeria’s two major political parties by one other major political party.
According to the source, Funke Akindele was about getting appointed to run as the deputy governor of Lagos State, by People’s Democratic Party, PDP and seeing how she may use her influence and fans against All Progressive Congress, APC, the party decided to fight the actress, in order to destroy PDP’s ambition.
Then, seeing that Funke was already having crisis in her marriage long before her husband’s announcement, the current ruling party APC used the husband against her by bribing him to announce the break up in order to tarnish Funke’s image and her ambition with opposition party, PDP.
