This was their first public outing in Nigeria since they had their private wedding in London on August 23, 2016.
Dressed in a sequined dress, Funke and her beau dressed in a suit, were at the premiere of the movie, “A trip to Jamaica” produced by AY the comedian. The venue was the Filmhouse, IMAX theatre, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos. The movie featured Funke aka Jenifa.
Married to rapper/actor JJC Skillz whose real name is Abdulrasheed Bello, Funke looked chubbier. Though no baby bump yet, the couple didn’t get their hands off each other at the event.
The wedding had generated much buzz and fans wondered the secrecy behind it.
The couple cleared the air a few days later and declared they went for a private ceremony in the United Kingdom to avoid been the cynosure of all eyes, their celebrity status notwithstanding.
In a statement sent by Funke Akindele’s publicist, Biodun Kupoluyi, Funke and JJC said:
“The decision to do it quietly was right for us and we pray for the understanding of our close friends and fans at this offer of a lifetime moment. At a good time, we shall look back and in appreciation of divine grace and your support, we shall celebrate milestones and where we are in life.”
Meanwhile, the working couple has since hit the ground running, shooting scenes for the new episode, Jenifa In London for the running sit-com, Jenifa’s Diary.
