How Funke Akindele Married Her Movie Director Years After Her First Marriage Crashed

Musician Rasheed Bello aka JJC has once again shared an interesting details of how he met his superstar wife and how they kicked off their romance.

His words:

“My wife is a fantastic cook, she’s an amazing woman. Everything about her attracted me to her. It’s not only one thing that attracts a man to a woman, but definitely, the cooking is a plus and my wife has it all. I would want to eat her meals for the rest of my life.

“When I met her, I just met someone that wanted a director for her TV show; Jenifa’s Diary. That was in 2013. We have been going on for a long time, people just found out in 2016. We were very low key because we are two popular people in the entertainment industry. We had to protect our privacy.

She wanted someone to direct her TV series, then I was about to embark on recording the JJC album then. Her sister introduced us because she knew I was into music video directing. So, when I met her, she told me she did a movie some time ago and would like to turn it into a TV series.

We started working together and preparing for the shoot, then one thing led to another. Here we are today, the rest is history. We just clicked.

It sounds like love at first sight.Well, I would say so, because the first time I saw her, I was wowed.

She also told me the same thing. We tried to keep the whole work as professional as possible but along the line, emotions ran high then asked how was the proposal.

I’m a romantic person, so I gave her a dose of it. It wasn’t in an open place because only very few people knew it then. So, that very day, she came home to meet flowers, candles everywhere; quite a romantic set up. When she saw it, she had no choice than to say ‘Yes’.”

For the records, Funke Akindele marriage crashed in 2013, the same year she met JJC.

The couple married in London in August 2016.
