Funke Akindele to fans: Pray for me to have a child

Comic actress Funke Akindele who secretly married her Nigerian rapper boyfriend Abdul Rasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz in London recently has urged her fans to pray for her.


Funke who is the producer of hugely successful comedy, Jenifa’s Diary, took to her Facebook page yesterday afternoon to appeal for prayers from her fans.

“I’m not shy to say this,” she wrote.


“You all know I, Funke Akindele Jenifa has been married for a while now without any issue.

“Some have even laughed at me, insulted me, judged me without knowing the pains I go through. I put up every effort in entertaining my fans and Nigerians at large, I made you laugh and some would even say I’ve inspired them in one way or the other.

“Now I’m in another man’s house.”

This is Funke’s second attempt at marriage. In 2012, she married Kehinde Almaro of Oloyede in a glamorous wedding which started having cracks just months after. While JJC Skillz has four children from different women, Funke is yet to have her own child and in her appeal, she also asked her fans to pray for her to conceive and deliver safely, even imploring them to share her prayer.

“Pls always put me in your prayers. I pray this year 2016 will not pass me by. I will not only give birth, but I will give birth safe and sound. As you write AMEN to this prayer, may God answer all your hidden prayers.

“Pls why not write Amen?

“Why not share this posts for others to say amen?

“Your AMEN is so powerful. Type Amen on my behalf.

“Even when I’m not happy, I still put up a smile face. Just for you my lovers, my fans. I love you all.”

The fans did have good words to her as the post in just a few hours generated nearly 200 shares, about 1, 400 comments and over 1, 700 reactions, wishing her the best of her matrimonial life.

It is sincerely tears of emphaty as I ponder on how you make people think, act, talk and laugh with ease only to turn to the same people with humility, humble and faith to support you in supplicating to God to grant you his blessings in form of fruit of the womb. I did not only say Ameen as requested but offered special prayers on the same purpose and assure you that the Almighty God, the All knowing, who sees, hears, the wise, who is capable of doing every thing and all things have heard your prayers, our prayers that sooner than expected you will experience the wonders of God, His miracle and feel his mighty. Please I must seek your indulgence, as I am requesting God to grant you a tripplet. Just two males and one female for a start. In sha Allah, all beliveing men and women; all non-beliving men and women shall praise God through the grace in you and would glorify God even the more. I shall be glad to call you Mama Three! So shall it be! Just continue thanking God and praise Him for guiding you towards this path.
