Nollywood actress and politician Funke Akindele is a year older today and unlike the previous years when she celebrated with a birthday shoot involving her husband, Mr Bello aka JJC Skillz, this year she settled for a lone one.
Taking to Instagram, the mother of two boys and gubernatorial aspirant of Lagos state, Funke Akindele shared stunning photos of herself as she wished herself a happy birthday.
Funke assured herself that God wouldn’t forsake her.
“Oluwaseun! Happy birthday to you OLUFUNKE AKINDELE!! The Lord will never forsake you in Jesus name! AMEN!!”.
It was reported that Funke Akindele hinted to her fans that she would turn 45 and was super excited about the feeling it gave her.
She wrote: “I will be 45 years old in few days!! Gratefulheart. Thankyoulord. anothernewchapterbegins.”
Dailynollygist recalls that six years after their marriage and several rumors of separation, Mr Bello finally confirmed their divorce in an early Thursday morning Instagram post.
The music producer and filmmaker revealed this on his Instagram page where he wrote, “Dear Friends and family, I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted, we shared many things and have created two beautiful children.
“The last two years have been tough for us. I have tried my best to fix things, but I believe it is beyond repair. 3 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 amicably to discuss the future of our relationship.”
“I’m making this announcement, so the public knows we are both pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed, such as the custody and wellbeing of our children, which is paramount, and business interests that need to be disentangled, but I do not doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.”
