Actress Funke Akindele Speaks on Failed Marriages

Funke Akindele, the Nigerian actress, says she does not regard divorce from her ex-husbands as a failure.

The celebrated movie star opened up to Wazobia TV about her unsuccessful marriages.

According to the director, she accepts her relationships and her life as they come.

She added that her primary priorities are influencing and having an impact on the next generation.

Akindele said that she is working hard to fulfill her purpose and be there for her children.

“If you ask me now can you tell me one failure, I do not see it as a failure. My personal life – marriage, I just take it as it comes. My mental health is very important. My career is very important, darling,” she said.

“I have to make an impact. I have to empower a lot of people. I have to inspire young people out there. I have to stay strong for my children and my siblings. Why am I living? I have a purpose, so my head is up. Yes I cry, yes I break down, but after I cry, I just look in the mirror and say, ‘keep moving.”

Akindele was previously married to JJC Skillz, the Nigerian singer.

The pair tied the knot in 2016 and welcomed a set of twins in 2018.

But in June 2022, JJC Skillz announced his separation from Akindele.

Before JJC Skillz, the movie star was formerly married to Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, the politician. The marriage was dissolved after a year.

With a slew of awards and accolades, Akindele has established herself as one of the prominent names in Nollywood.
