Music artiste and husband of Nollywood star, Funke Akindele, Abdul Rasheed Bello also known as JJC Skillz, has disclosed that he fell in love with the actress the first time she meet her. He added that he even proposed to her a week after they met and she laughed.
The couple got married in London quietly in 2016 and is now undertaking projects together. The singer who is now a movie director said in an interview that Funke loves to make ewedu and pounded yam, his favourite for him.
“Funke and I have a very wonderful, beautiful relationship, but to be honest, I had proposed to her earlier and she laughed at me. I think that was a week after we met. I was like, ‘I have never met anyone like you, marry me’. And she just laughed at me. And then, I promised that she would be my wife. I play around a lot, but then, I meant it. My wife is a fantastic cook, she’s an amazing woman, and everything about her attracted me to her. It’s not only one thing that attracts a man to a woman, but definitely, the cooking Skill is a plus and my wife has it all. I would want to eat her meals for the rest of my life. She’s loving, caring, and hard working. She is all a man could ever ask for,” he said.
JJC Skills who met his wife in 2013 is now involved in the present season VI of the award winning ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ and ‘Industreet’, a movie on the behind-the-scenes in the entertainment industry.
