Funke Akindele Welcomes First Child With Husband JJC Skillz
Popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, has welcomed her first child with her musician husband, JJC Skillz (real name: Abdul Rasheed Bello) in the United States.
It is understood that the child was birthed at Los Angeles on Friday, December 21, 2018.
The Jenifa’s Diary actress also revealed this via her Insta-story.
She wrote, Thank you Lord, ‘oluwa e tobi (God is great)’. “Ati fi oruko titun pe mi.”
The good news comes a few years after a Lagos-based pastor, Olagorioye Faleyimu, said that the Nollywood star may not have children of her own, and might end up with another broken home.
Despite the prophecy, Funke’s husband, JJC Skillz, reaffirmed his love and commitment to the Jenifa’s Diary star.
Meanwhile, Nigerians have since taken to Twitter to shower encomiums and congratulated the actress.
Congratulations to Funke Akindele! Beautiful Christmas news!
