Nollywood actress and film producer, Funke Akindele has opened up on her marriage to Nigerian rapper, Abdulrasheed Bello known professionally as JJC Skillz.
According to Jenifa as she is fondly called, anytime she gets into a disagreement with JJC, she is always the first person to apologize.
Speaking in an interview on TVContinental, the 43 year old said;
“When we have disagreements, I apologise first. You know me; it is mouth that I have. I will say everything and just let it go and my anger span is very short but Abdul’s own is longer, so, he takes his time before he gets angry. Abdul does not get angry easily, he takes things easy.
“And Abdul knows how to communicate better; so, if I am having issues with someone I am working with, I usually go and report the person to him. I ask him, ‘what do we do now because you know that I don’t know how to talk o.’ Then he tells me to calm down and goes to talk to the person”.
Speaking further on her marriage, Funke disclosed that she has the creative juice while her husband handles the technical aspect.
“For Abdul and me; I am the major producer, Abdul does not produce, he does not even like it. He is a director, he is so technical. I am very creative, he is very technical and he is very good.” she said.
She added that she had learnt over the years to respect her partner no matter what, “You should not command people to do things; you should communicate in a subtle way. You should not be defensive, you should not nag. So, I tell my husband things I do not like and he does so the same way”, Akindele-Bello stated.
