Actress Funke Akindele has a lot to talk about when it comes to her love life.
Funke said she intensionally stopped her private life on getting to the public eye because of what she faced at the time of her first failed marriage in 2013.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said: “I really don’t like discussing about my private life anymore because it pays to keep that part of your life secret. A lot of people are watching and sometimes you read a lot of negative comments about you which could make you want to derail, so it is better to keep matters of the heart close to the heart. I am the one in it and I know what is good for me. I am sorry I don’t want to talk about anything that has to do with my private life.”
Funke’s new found love, rapper JJC caused a stir when he shared some snapchat pictures of his kids on the dining table and just before the video ended, the camera faced Funke Akindele, who seemed to be in her pyjamas.
Before the dust could settle on the snapchat video that got everyone talking, the rap artiste shared another video where his mother was spotted praying for a Funke Akindele.
One of the prayer points was that the actress would be blessed with the fruit of the womb and she would give her good grandchildren. Beaming with smiles from one ear to another, the actress eagerly said amen in the short video.
When Saturday Beats reached out to the actress to confirm if the pair were dating, her publicist, Biodun Kupoluyi, said that Funke and JJC had been friends for a long time and they still maintained that friendship.
“Two of them have been friends for a long time and they still remain close friends. They have been helping each other’s career for a while,” he said.
