Video: Funke Akindele Gives Reasons Why Her Friends Can’t Call Her Husband
Funke Akindele has sent a stern warning to all her friends not to get too friendly towards her husband and call him except on his birthday.
Akindele-Bello, who is married to Abdul Rasheed Bello, a.k.a JJC Skillz, said this on Your View, a programme broadcast on Television Continental in Lagos, a video of which went viral on Thursday.
When asked on the issue of personal space by the hostess as regards friends calling one’s husband, the TV star said,
“For me, personal space is your personal space where nobody can come into.”
When asked if this includes a best friend, she said Yes.
She said, “Yes, your friend can come to your house. Your husband can know your best friend; he can say hello. But why would you be calling my husband on the phone? What happened? Why do you want to call my husband?
“Except it is his birthday and you want to wish him a happy birthday, why would you call him? Okay, maybe you’ve been trying to talk to me and you can reach me; yes, you can call him. But you just call him to say hello, why?
“Why should you bring food for my husband? Are you okay? Why would you want to come and say hello to him? Why? I’m your friend and you’re not his friend. His female friends can visit our home. That’s their business.
“But (if) you’re my friend, stay in your house. I’m not around. I’m in London. So you want to greet my husband? You’re not okay, I’m sorry.”
It would be recalled that the 41-year-old Akindele first married Kehinde Oloyedele on May 26, 2012 but that marriage crashed about a year later when the two went their separate ways in July 2013 stating irreconcilable differences. In May 2016, she married JJC whom she had twins for in December 2018 (she also has several step-children from JJC’s previous relationships).
