Funke Akindele, JJC Skillz marry secretly in London

Away from the prying eyes of the public, comic actor and creator of the Jenifa series, Funke Akindele, has secretly married her Nigerian rapper boyfriend, JJC Skillz, in London, UK on Tuesday, August 23, 2016. Only a few friends and family and children of JJC attended the private ceremony.


It will be the second time the acclaimed Nollywood actress who celebrated her 39th birthday on Wednesday, August 24 is getting married.


In 2012, Funke had Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede in a glamorous wedding. But only months into the marriage, cracks developed and both had to part ways. While JJC, founder of JJC and 419 Squad, is an award-winning artiste, director and producer, has never been married but has four children with three women.


Though the couple have kept mum about the wedding, it was no secret that JJC and Funke were in a relationship. And while Funke had been spotted wearing an engagement ring, on Funke’s birthday, JJC posted a collage of Funke’s pictures and writing, ‘Happy birthday @funkejenifaakindele aka FAB’ with FAB likely referring to ‘Funke Akindele Bello’.


Also confirming the wedding when congratulating Funke on her birthday, was On-Air-Personality Freeze of Cool FM.
