|Funke Akindele and husband, JJC|
The ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ actress was born on August 24, 1976.
Recall that she celebrated her 39th birthday in 2016 by having a
private wedding in London. Then, Funke was officially married to
Nigerian rapper, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz.
Now with just some hours to clocking 40, the versatile actress is
pregnant! The video of the Glo Laffta Fest which was shared online
confirmed her baby bump on Sunday night and it went viral!
If what JJC Skillz leaked on Snapchat some weeks ago about the couple
expecting a set of twins were to be confirmed, then it means Jenifa
will soon be a mother of twins.
Not only is Jenifa, as she is fondly called, becoming a mum at last,
her ratings on social media have been on the rise. On Instagram, Funke
rakes in over 3.6m followers (the first African actress to garner such)!
Moreover in a report by Nollygist.com, it’s researched that Funke Akindele’s Net worth is estimated at USD 1.4 Million.
Reputed to own one of Nigeria’s most popular TV Series ‘Jenifa’s Dairy’
where she plays the lead character, Funke became a hit after featuring
in popular United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) sponsored sitcom; ‘I
Need to Know‘ which ran on TV from 1998 to 2002.
The funny actress raked in money with her TV Series ‘Jenifa’s Dairy’
what with her unique mode of speaking the English language, which grew
her fan base by 70 per cent.
Counting her blessings, the endorsement deals she got within a year
(aside being a Globacom ambassador) increased over 80 per cent over the
previous years. Mind you, she revealed that she started producing
Jenifa’s Diary with proceeds from an endorsement deal in 2015.
From fashion, to sports betting, beverages, soaps and other
essentials, Jenifa’s mouth-watering endorsement deals keep coming in
with Western Lotto as her latest catch.
At 40 and with baby (ies) on the way, Funke Akindele-Bello definitely is celebrating huge successes on August 24.
Happy birthday in Advance, Jenifa.
