Nigerian actress Funke Akindele-Bello speaks on her first marriage to ex-husband Adeola Oloyede and why it failed.

The actress opened up during a chat with Chude Jideonwo on his show #WithChude. Before speaking about her failed marriage, Funke admonished young women against rushing into marriage because of pressure.

She said: “As a young lady out there, do not be pressured to get married. Get married because you want to get married, get married because you love him, you want to spend the rest of your life with him.

“Don’t get married because mummy and daddy are saying get married or your friend just got married, have children because you want to have children, you want to be blessed with children, you love children.

“Don’t have children because the society will say, ‘ah, she’s barren oh, 12 years 6 years e never marry’ ignore the gossips, ignore the naysayers, give them, sorry, the middle finger, I don’t care. Yes, ignore because you have your life, do what makes you happy.”

You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that. And I went into the (first) marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way, in social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die!” the actress said.

“You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it break me,” she added.

However, on August 23rd 2016, Funke Akindele found love again and married a music star, Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known as JJC Skillz. Recently, the duo celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary.
