Funke Akindele, new husband, JJC step out
Actress Funke Akindele and singer, JJC Skillz, were pictured for the first time together after their secret wedding weeks ago.
On August 24, the new celebrity couple got engaged at a secret wedding in London. According to sources, Funke, otherwise known as Jenifa, walked down the aisle with her lover of many months, Abdul Rasheed Bello (popularly called Skillz), at a Registry in London, United Kingdom.
What started with the actress flaunting her two ring bands earlier on Snapchat and speculations that the duo might be up to something finally became true when they indeed got married.
And because both had been previously married, they decided to tie the knot in secret and out of the prying eyes of Nigerians, another source added.
An informed source confirmed that the couple opted for a secret wedding after observing from a distance how rumour mongers almost ruined the wedding of Seyi Tinubu to Layal Holm by exposing their dirty secrets just days to their wedding.
Funke was once married to Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, a property developer in Lagos, while Skillz has four children from three women. Both ostensibly didn’t enjoy their previous relationships.
The newly wed reportedly got engaged back in February after dating for a while. Reports of a secret wedding first surfaced in May, but neither JJC nor Funke confirmed the report.
