Despite claim by Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz, that his marriage with Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele, is still intact, the duo on Friday night arrived at Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards (AMVCA) in separate cars.
There have been speculations that the marriage of Funke and her producer husband, JJC Skillz, is on the brink of collapse, and the couple’s recent action seems to confirm the rumour.
The power couple attended the African Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA) gala night on May 13. Although they were seen together but the usual romantic bliss seen by fans of the duo was lacking. Funke and JJC seemed full of life as they interacted and paid pleasantries to their colleagues at the event.
After they got tongues wagging for separately attending the AMVCA nominee party the night before, Funke Akindele and her husband, JJC Skillz have attended tonight’s show together.
Funke Akindele and her husband JJC skills reportedly arrived last night’s nominee party in separate cars and to worsen it, there was no picture of the couple together nor where they were spotted sitting together.
Today, however, they not only arrived together but sat beside each other alongside actress Chioma Akpotha. Several times, the AMVCA camera showed them grinning at each other and enjoying each other’s company.
Also when they got their first award for their movie Omo Ghetto a moment ago, they stood up, held hands and walked to the stage to receive it together.
As if that wasn’t enough, the actress dedicated her win to her husband and their twins.
The celebrity couple, who got married in 2016 and welcomed a set of twins in 2018, have neither confirmed nor denied the reports.

Meanwhile, JJC Skillz debunked the rumour in an Instagram post.

“Have loads of fun with the children. See you soon at home. Don’t let anyone spoil your vibes. #familyfirst. #Bellos4ever #chinesswhispers #devilisaliar.”
