Nollywood actress Funke Akindele, who celebrates her 44th birthday today, disclosed in a now viral interview how she ventured into her first marriage out of pressure.
Her marriage in 2012, to popular business tycoon, Adeola Kehinde Oloyede, lasted a little over a year, with so much unpleasant events; alleged abuse and infidelity.
Funke Akindele made this known during an interview, on the show #WithChude, hosted by Chude Jideonwo.
The Nollywood star said;
“You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that. And I went into the (first) marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way, in social media, the noise was everywhere,” she said.
“I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die! You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it break me.”
Despite the initial setback, Funke Akindele found love in the hands of another, Mr Bello, better known as JJCSkillz. The duo who tied the knot in 2016, celebrated their wedding anniversary yesterday. Their marriage is blessed with a set of twins.
