Celebrity marriage, they say, comes with so much drama, but JJC Skillz says he loves the fact that him and his wife, Funke Akindele, are in the same industry, as it is the best.
In an interview with Punch, the rapper revealed some mushy thoughts on how he met Funke.
“She (Funke) had an idea called Jenifa’s Diary that she wanted to do, and she was looking for a good director and cameraman, so she called me to help her shoot the TV series, and that was how we met,” he said.
“It was an instant connection. In fact, it was love at first sight. I saw her, she saw me, and we saw stars. From that point on, everything was aligned.”
And unlike most celebs who insist dating in the same industry is recipe for disaster, JJC said that:
“The truth is I work really hard all the time, and a lot of the people I dated in the past used to complain that I did not devote time to them. But now, I have found my better-half who works as hard as I do, so it is a perfect combination, and the world is in trouble because we are the perfect team.
“As I am playing music, she is making me laugh. We have the perfect synergy, and what we are working on right now will blow people’s minds away. And I want to advise people in the entertainment industry to go and look for their better-half within the same industry, because it will give you more focus and direction.”
JJC Skillz and Funke Akindele
JJC Skillz and Funke were rumored to be in a relationship for a while until they made it official in May 2016, tying the knots in London in a secret wedding.
Funke had been previously married in 2012 to one Adeola Kehinde Oloyede, but they divorced less than a year after, due to some differences.
Skillz, on the other hand, has had three children from his past relationships, and the kids are all grown up now.
The couple are currently working on a project together and according to the rapper, it’s something big Nigeria should watch out for.
We are anticipating!
