Funke Akindele Speaks On Some Of The Positive Changes In Her Life Since She Got Married



Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa speaks about her career and her marriage in a chat with Punch.

According to the newly-married actress who got married secretly in London to her husband, Abdul-Rasheed Bello, aka JJC Skillz, there have been a lot of positive changes in her life since she got married.

On her marriage

“Before I met my husband, I used to work on Sundays, but he always says that I need to rest. Our chef leaves on Saturday mornings to see his family, so whenever I want to cook, my husband tells me not to do so and we eat out.  We do that very often. Now, I enjoy my life and I rest.’’

On her husband’s influence on her new project

“I have been filming a new television series called In Da Streetz. It is about the entertainment industry and how people try to survive. It also dwells on the hustle and bustle in the ghetto. It would be full of glitz, glamour and it’s a production that has deep content.

My new project is music-oriented, so I am working with people like K-Switch, Mo-Easy, Lydia Forson, Linda Ejiofor, Tina Mba, Kunle Coker, and Freeze of Cool FM. It is just a group of people coming together to do something different on television through Scene One Productions, where I am the CEO. My mission is for people to enjoy wholesome entertainment.

My husband is a pioneer in the music industry, so he has been there. He gave me the storyline and the synopsis which I developed and edited

    Everyone deserves to live their lives how they can afford and how they want. But certain details of that life should be kept private pls or shared when absolutely necessary. Right now this information is absolutely unnecessary even when asked.
