Movie Star Funke Akindele Welcomes Twin Boys

By Dipo Olowookere

A popular actress in Nigeria, Mrs Funke Akindele Bello, has been delivered of two bouncing baby boys, multiple reports said.

The movie star reportedly gave birth to the twins a moment ago outside the country. It is the first time the woman is having children for her musician husband, Mr Abdul Rasheed Bello, otherwise known as JJC Skillz.

After her first marriage to one Lagos-based politician, Kenny Almaroof failed, Funke Akindele, fondly called Jenifa, secretly married her new husband in 2016 in the United Kingdom.

After her second marriage, a Lagos-based cleric and founder of Mountain of Blessing and Miracle Church of Christ, Olagorioye Faleyimu, prophesied in 2017 that the actress might not bear a child before she dies unless she prays fervently.

However, her husband replied the man of God, saying “No evil prophecies will come to pass in your (Funke’s) generation.”

Before now, Funke Akindele had been reported to be pregnant, especially with twins.

Meanwhile, some celebrities have started congratulating Funke Akindele and her husband on the arrival of the twin boys. Some of those who have greeted the actress include Mercy Aigbe, Mercy Johnson, Toke Makinwa, Yvonne Jegede amongst others.
