Rapper and actor JJC Skillz has revealed why he celebrated his estranged wife actress Funke Akindele on her 45th birthday despite their separation.
The rapper left many speechless and others emotional over a surprise birthday message to the Omo Ghetto star on her birthday.
JJC compiled videos of the actress which he posted on Instagram on Wednesday, calling her his ‘darling mama Ibeji’.
He wrote: “Happy birthday my darling mama Ibeji. I pray our children embody the goodness of God and be a blessing to generations. Today is your day, celebrate and live to the fullest. Long life and prosperity.”
Explaining why he celebrated his estranged wife in an interview with TVC published on Friday, he said: “I think a lot of people are quite shocked to find out I’m human. To be honest growing up in England with my experience of having different baby mamas, the most important thing is the children, just focus on the children and let the drama go. You know we have almost seven years of lovely relationship, so happy birthday to her, I wish her luck.”
JJC Skillz born Abdulrasheed Bello left a shocking message for his Instagram followers on the platform on Thursday, June 30 where he announced his separation from the actress.
According to the rapper, the last two years had been difficult for them and he tried his best to make things work. He added that Funke asked him to leave the house months ago.
JJC also said he believes his marriage to Funke was beyond repair.
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 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 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. 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 that need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other.”
The ex-couple got married on August 23, 2016.
