The Actors Guild of Nigeria has expressed its shock and sadness over Funke Akindele’s marriage split with Almaroof Kehinde and describes the incident as unfortunate.
In an interview with Sunday Punch, The Chairman of AGN, FCT, Abuja chapter, Mr. Onwurah Agility, stated that marriages were not meant to be.
In his words;
“Because I am an actor does not mean I have to die in my marriage if it is not working out. We are humans like others, blood runs in our veins like other people.
“Marriage in Nollywood is not different from other marriages. But because we are the mirror of the society, the face of the screen and role models to many, if there is a problem in our marriage, it makes noise more than any other. There are many people in the industry that have been married for many years without separating.
“What happened to Funke (Akindele) is unfortunate but like she said, may be they were not to be husband and wife and she has learnt her lessons. It could have been anybody.
“The theory and stories that actors’ marriages don’t last are very wrong. I have been married for five years and still counting, likewise so many other actors in the industry.”
Akindele, had while confirming the crash of her marriage, said she had learnt from her mistakes and had no grudge against her former husband.
