Nigerian musician, Abdul Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz has officially announced the separation from his wife, Funke Akindele Bello.
This is coming after months of rumours and speculations about the couple’s marriage.
The entertainer who made the announcement on his Instagram page on Thursday morning admitted that things have been difficult between them for two years and he moved out of the house on her insistence.
JJC Skillz further revealed that he had not been able to have a sit down with Funke Akindele since the Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards on May 14.
He wrote, “Dear Friends and family, I need to let you know that Funke and I have separated. While it lasted, we shared a lot of things together and have created two beautiful children.
“The last two years have been extremely difficult for us. I know I have tried my best to fix things but I believe it is beyond repair now. Three 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 in an amicable manner to discuss the future of our relationship.”
JJC added that that they were yet to discuss the custody of the children and the next step in their relationship.
“I’m making this announcement so that the public is clear that we both are pursuing separate lives. We still have issues that need to be addressed such as the custody and wellbeing of our children which is paramount as well as business interests which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.”
