JJC has finally opened up about his love life with Funke Akindele, and we SOS think their love is like the ones we read in story books—fairytale!
In a recent interview with PUNCH newspaper, the rapper revealed that marriage—as an entertainer—has made him “more focused,” giving him “more stability and peace of mind.”
You once said that you were wary of any kind of emotional attachment, why did you decide to get married to Funke Akindele?
“In life, when you find the right person, nobody needs to tell you to settle down,” JJC said about his decision to marry the Nollywood actress. “It is like finding God; you may be a bad boy in the club today, and the next day, you’re in front of the church shouting ‘Halleluyah.’ Nobody can determine when that change will happen, and I’m very happy that it has happened to me.”
On how he met Funke, he said, “She had an idea called ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ that she wanted to do, and she was looking for a good director and cameraman, so she called me to help her shoot the TV series, and that was how we met.”
“Absolutely, it was an instant connection. In fact, it was love at first sight. I saw her,she saw me and, we saw stars. From that point on, everything was aligned,” JJC further revealed.
