Barely two months after Abdulrasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, confirmed his marriage with Nollywood actress Funke Akindele has ended, the talented singer has taken a dive into a different kind of venture.
Recall that six years after their marriage and several rumours of separation, Mr Bello finally confirmed their divorce in an early Thursday morning Instagram post.
The music producer and filmmaker revealed this on his Instagram page where he wrote, “Dear Friends and family, I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted, we shared many things and have created two beautiful children.
The last two years have been tough for us. I have tried my best to fix things, but I believe it is beyond repair. 3 months ago and at Funke’s insistence, I moved out of the house and, apart from AMVCA, have not been able to get Funke to sit down amicably to discuss the future of our relationship.”
I’m making this announcement, so the public knows we are both pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed, such as the custody and wellbeing of our children, which is paramount, and business interests that need to be disentangled, but I do not doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.”
However, shedding more light on his new founded company, JJC Skillz, said Afristar which also has CSR projects that involve going from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, city to city, across the whole nation and the whole world to Showcase African stars, will also tackle the sex-for-role Ideology in the entertainment industry.
He said, “Afristar is all about and it cuts goes across all fields from acting to singing. We are obviously a content company. I have heard about sexual harassment in the industry but I have not experienced or seen it myself but I believe that this App will eliminate that. It doesn’t mean that the person seeking services would not still take advantage if he or she wants to but I would leave that to person-to-person thing. And I will advise actors, do not fall prey to that, do not give in and do not compromise because there are people like us out there who do not need anything from you to give you the limelight. if anything at all, create your own. I want to inspire a whole generation. Pick up your mobile phone, shoot yourself, act, send it to me and I will put you on a TV show because that is what Afristar is for. You don’t have to sell yourself short at all.”
