Pop artiste and filmmaker, Abdulrasheed Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz has revealed why he married Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele.
In an interview, the “Save The Last Dance” crooner revealed that one of his daughters actually talked him into marrying the delectable actress who is known for her comedic roles in her movie “Jenifa” and her TV series “Jenifa’s Diary.”
His words “well, before we got married in London, we all had a good relationship here in Nigeria. The kids were always seeing this beautiful woman around daddy, and she always makes him happy. They might be away and in different continents, but they are part of our daily activities”.
“She is also very close to them, they met her digital first. They didn’t know she was an actress then, because in the UK, they hardly watch Nigerian movies, but they loved her so much. They all love each other. It’s a perfect blend. I remember my daughter telling me ‘Dad make sure you marry her. She’s a keeper’.
“And I did, I followed my daughter’s advice. One of my songs, ‘Save The Last Dance’ was written for my wife, she really saved the last dance for me,” he concluded.
The couple, who got married in May 2016 has since launched a record label together called “SOP Records.”
