Popular Nigerian and music producer, Abdul Rasheed Bello, a.k.a JJC Skillz in a recent interview revealed that he never knew Funke Akindele before they started dating, he also used the opportunity to address the issue that has been rumored severally by many that he married Funke Akindele to revive his fading music career.
He disclosed that he was never a fan of Nigerian movie not even his wife’s series, Jenifa’s diaries.
According to JJC, he believes that it was the right time for he and funke to be together and that’s why they are happily married irrespectively of their successful career.
“she has been successful in her career, and i also have been fortunate to be successful in my career. Most importantly when it’s right for two people to be together, they will be together. It’s not something that i thought about or even planned that will happen. To be honest, i didn’t know who Funke Akindele was, i grew up in London so i never watched the Jenifa movie, i never watched Nigerian films, i was a Hollywood person. It was after Funke and i started dating, that i actually sat down to watch the jenifa movie.”
