Actress Funke Akindele turned 45 on August 24.
Many people were astonished when her estranged spouse, Abdulrasheem Bello, aka JJC Skillz, wished her a happy birthday and prayed for her on Instagram. He had been discussing their split on social media for weeks prior to this.
In an interview with TVC on August 25, JJC Skillz stated why he offered the birthday shoutout despite their marital crisis.
“When people learn that I am human, they are often rather astonished. Since I was raised in England and had several different baby moms, I can honestly say that the kids are what matters most. Simply concentrate on the kids, let the drama go, and most importantly, adopt a grateful mindset. We had a wonderful relationship for about seven years. Happy birthday to her, and best of luck to her.”
