Nigerian musician, filmmaker Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC who is now married to Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele recently spoke on how one of his daughters convinced him to marry Funke.
He also spoke about how his children with other women have accepted Funke as his partner.
In a recent chat with Playground TV, he said, ‘well, before we got married in London, we all had a good relationship here in Nigeria. The kids were always seeing this beautiful woman around daddy, and she always makes him happy. They might be away and in different continents, but they are part of our daily activities’.
He continued to say, ‘she is also very close to them, they met her digital first. They didn’t know she was an actress then, because in the UK, they hardly watch Nigerian movies, but they love her so much. They all love each other. It’s a perfect blend. I remember my daughter telling me ‘Dad make sure you marry her. She’s a keeper”. And I did, I followed my daughter’s advice. One of my songs, Save The Last Dance’ was written for my wife, she really saved the last dance for me”.
