The marriage between celebrity couple; actress Funke Akindele, and her husband, music and record producer, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz, has hit the rocks.
On his verified Instagram account, Bello announced to his friends and fans that he and the multiple award-winning actress have called it quits with their marriage. He locked the comment section on his Instagram post.
The power couple got married in May 2016 and gave birth to a set of twins in December 2018.
The former member of the now-defunct and London-based group 419 squad wrote:
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.
He stated that the actress insisted he (JJC Skillz) moved out of the house about three months ago.
I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. 3 months ago and at Funke’s insistence, I moved out of the house, and apart from AMVCA, I 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 that need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.
JJC Skillz who has been in music for quite a number of years started his career in London with the 419 Squad that had the likes of Don Jazzy, D Banj, MP, So Simple, and Smokey before things fell apart among them.
