Popular actress, Funke Akindele-Bello who recently got married in a secret ceremony in London to singer and producer, JJC Skillz is happy with her man and marriage.
Speaking in a recent interview with PUNCH, the actress spoke on an array of things from her marriage to personal life and career.
When asked about the downsides of acting and how she copes, she said:
“The gospel group, Mary Mary, inspires. Whenever I listen to their songs, I am inspired. One of their songs goes thus: ‘I just can’t give up now. I’ve come too far from where I started from, nobody told me that road is going to be easy.’ The song teaches me that good things don’t come easy, you just have to push. There are many times when they write about me in the newspapers and magazines. I just say to myself that it’s not their fault, it’s because I am acting. At such times, I want to quit acting but then, I look into the mirror and say to myself, you have it in you, don’t give up and bury your talents. This is why I use my talent as a tool to pass messages across to people.’’
While she didn’t comment on her new marriage, she spoke about some of the changes that have occurred in her life since getting married.
“Before I met my husband, I used to work on Sundays, but he always says that I need to rest. Our chef leaves on Saturday mornings to see his family, so whenever I want to cook, my husband tells me not to do so and we eat out. We do that very often. Now, I enjoy my life and I rest,’’ she said.
