EFIWE GISTS: How I Met Funke Akindele Bello In 2013 – JJC Skillz @funkejenifaakindele @jjcskillz


In an interview with Nigerian Tribune, rapper and video director Abdul Rasheed Bello popularly known as JJC Skillz and husband of award-winning actress #FunkeAkindeleBello disclosed how he met his wife, his career, and family life.

He also disclosed that his music is on hold as he is focusing on his movie directing career with two major productions Jenifa’s Diary and Industreet.

When asked if he had taken a break from music, he said:


“Yes. My music is on hold, because I needed to focus on this great opportunity that came to my doorsteps. Jenifa’s Diary is a big project, you can see we have been winning awards here and there. We as a family, have our hands full already in different productions.” .

He disclosed that he had certificates in TV and video production, and had worked in that industry for 2 years.

 “I actually studied TV and Video Production in school. After my studies, I went on to take on MVQ course; which is like a work training course. I had 9 straight A’s during the course from script writing, directing, all. I did it so passionately, I came out with distinctions.

Because of my grade, I was able to get a job with an amazing advertisement company. I was their assistant editor and worked there for 2 years. So, I had a background in entertainment, directing, editing, it’s what I studied and it’s now my profession. But I left all that for music,” JJC Skillz said.

How did you meet Funke Akindele?

She wanted someone to direct her TV series, then I was about to embark on recording the JJC album then. Her sister introduced us, because she knew I was into music video directing. So, when I met her, she told me she did a movie sometime ago and would like to turn it into a TV series. We started working together and preparing for the shoot, then one thing led to another. Here we are today, the rest is history. We just clicked.
