Abdulrasheed Bello known professionally as JJC Skillz has announced that he and his wife, Funke Akindele, have separated.
The Nigerian songwriter and rapper made the announcement on Thursday, June 30, via his Instagram page.
He said he has tried over the last two years to fix things in the marriage but that he believes their union is beyond repair now.
JJC Skillz disclosed that he moved out of their home three months ago after his wife asked him to leave.
He explained that apart from the public appearance they both had at the just concluded African Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA), they have not been able to sit down in an amicable manner to discuss the future of their 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 which need to be disentangled but I have no doubt that these will be resolved one way or the other,” he said.
