JJC Skillz's Benito Bello

Benito Bello, son of filmmaker Abdulrasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, has reacted to his father’s separation from actress Funke Akindele.

JJC announced the separation in an Instagram post on Thursday, June 30.

According to the rapper, the last two years have been difficult for them and he tried his best to make things work. He added that Funke asked him to leave their matrimonial home three months ago.

The 45-year-old noted that he was making the announcement to clear the air and make it known to the public that they have decided to pursue separate lives.

Reacting to the breakup in an Instagram post, Benito wrote: “I spoke the truth mehn”.

Speculations that their marriage was in crisis started Benito Bello claimed he lived with the couple for two years and the experience was a horror. He accused JJC of assaulting him, adding that Funke is not what she is believed to be.

The couple, however, tried to shut down the rumour by publicly declaring love for each other but things spiraled out of control when Benito’s mum, Mella, threatened to expose the actress and her husband if they do not leave her family alone.

Funke and JJC got married in a private ceremony in London on August 23, 2016, the eve of her 39th birthday.

The couple welcomed their twins in 2018.
