Popular Nollywood actress Funke Akindele opened up about her experience and what she learned from her failed marriage to talent manager JJC Skillz.
In a recent interview with prominent media personality Chude Jideonwo, Funke revealed that she faced difficulties and had to overcome various challenges.
Using her own life as an example, Funke Akindele emphasized that she succumbed to societal pressures and rushed into marriage to fulfill societal expectations.
Unfortunately, her marriage didn’t go as planned, resulting in a highly publicized divorce.
Akindele candidly shared that her divorce had several consequences, including missed business opportunities and emotional hardship. Nonetheless, she credited her mother for being a pillar of support during this trying time.
She concluded the interview by offering valuable advice to young women, urging them to learn from her experiences and emphasizing the importance of not rushing into marriage.
“Take your time, if you rush in you will rush out. You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that. When I went into the marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way, in social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die!”
“You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it break me. Thank God for my mum who encouraged me to put more effort to work. I channeled the energy to work and I kept saving more. I didn’t let the situation break me down.”
