Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has announced a huge achievement amidst her marriage crisis with husband JJCSkillz.
Recall that yesterday JJC had confirmed rumors that all was not well with their home when he took to his Instagram account to announce that he and his wife had separated.
“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 2 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. 3 MONTHS AGO AND AT FUNKES 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. 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”
The announcement was trailed with different reactions, with some blaming Funke for throwing her husband out of their home.
However, despite the turbulence, Funke has announced a huge win for herself.
The mother of two reposted a congratulatory message from her colleague Etinosa for bagging an Oscars recognition.
In a statement, the Academy disclosed that membership selection is based on professional qualifications, with an ongoing commitment to representation, inclusion and equity remaining a priority.
