Nigerian music producer Abdulrasheed Bello popularly called JJC Skillz has reacted to speculations that his estranged wife Funke Akindele brought him to the limelight.
Following the crash of the couple’s marriage, many people criticized JJC for benefiting so much from Funke Akindele’s fame.
Naija News earlier reported that his ex-publicist in a viral video alleged that the marriage of the estranged couple was actually a transaction.
He linked the union of the actress to that of Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage and Teebillz stating that Funke had a problem with getting married and having children and JJC came into the scene for business purposes.
In his word: “Funke Akindele’s marriage and Bello’s marriage was never a real marriage, it was actually just a transaction. Remember the case of Tee Billz and Tiwa Savage back then, Teebillz was a married man who left his marriage for Tiwa because she was the talent and he saw her as a goldmine.
“That was what happened between Funke and JJC Skillz. Funke had a problem getting married and having kids and JJC Skillz came until the scene practically for business purposes l and as a UK boy that is wise, he played along.
Responding to critics, JJC Skillz took to his Instagram story to share a video of Funmi Obadeyi showering praises on him.
Funmi described JJC as one of the Afrobeats pioneers adding that the new generation of kids would not know him.
He said: “JJC is one of the Afrobeat pioneer. Most of the new generation kids don’t know this”.
