Funke Akindele Explains Why She Rushed Into Her First Marriage

Nollywood actress and movie producer Funke Akindele has explained the reasons why she rushed into her first marriage.

 

The popular nollywood actress was first married to Adeola Kehinde Oloyede. The marriage which didn’t last long had no child. They had gotten married on 26th May, 2012 and divorced July of the following year.

 

Speaking during an Interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Funke also known as Jenifa openly said the only reason why she’s sharing that part of her life is to encourage ladies out there that are in a rush to get married. Urging them to take their time and not be pressurized by family, friends or society. And that the ones that feel bad and are pressured to get married should calm down, take their time adding that if they rush in, they will be forced to rush out.

 

In her words;

 

“I don’t want to drag anybody. I’ll talk about myself. I just wanted to get married. Children, pressure and all that.”

 

“The marriage ended in a bad way. I was filming when someone called and told me. I wanted to die. I cried and lost a lot of deals.”

 

On how she survived the phase, she said;

 

“I survived that period by channelling my pain into work. I was collecting every script from the East and acting.”

She recounted how she’d have to wake up as early as 3:30am so as to get to the airport from her mother’s house in Ajah. This she did so as to meet up with 7:30am flights to Enugu every time she had a movie role in the Eastern part of the country.

 

Furthermore, she advised women never to be pressured into getting married or having children when they weren’t ready as it will not end well.

 

“I rushed into the marriage out of pressure and it didn’t end well,” she said.

 

In May 2016 she walked down the aisle again with Nigerian rapper JJC Skillz in London . She gave birth to twin boys in December, 2018.
