Popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has revealed why she rushed into her first marriage with Adeola Kehinde Oloyede.
Recall that the mother of two in an earlier report had surfaced to warn people about the dangers of rushing into marriage. Using herself as a case study, she stressed that if one rushes into marriage, there are great chances of rushing out also.
Speaking with the popular celebrity interviewer, Chude Jideonwo, Funke Akindele revealed that she rushed into marriage due to pressure from family members and the excitement of having children.
Funke urged young people to learn from her story and take things bit by bit when it comes to marriage.
Funke Akindele’s marriage with Kehinde hit the rock in 2013 and she later got married to the Nigerian rapper, JJC Skillz.
In her words:
“The only reason why i would share this with you is to encourage ladies out there that are in a rush to get married. The ones that feel bad and are pressured to get married. Calm down, take your time. If you rush in, you will rush out.”
“I don’t wanna drag anybody. I’ll talk about me. I just wanted to get married. Children, pressure and all that. The marriage ended in a bad way. I was filming when someone called and told me. I wanted to die. I cried and lost a lot of deals.”
“I survived that period by channeling my pain into work. I was collecting every script from the East and acting. “
“I rushed into the marriage out of pressure and it didn’t end well”
