Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Bello has revealed why she keeps her children’s faces out of the public eye.
The 45-year-old actress was previously married to Adeola Kehinde but they divorced in July 2013 due to irreconcilable differences.
However, she is currently married to Nigerian rapper JJC Skillz. In December 2018, the union was blessed with twins.
Ms. Akindele-Bello has a strong social media presence as her fans stay on top of trending updates on the actress’s personal life. Although she has a habit of posting personal content and behind-the-scenes pictures of her life, her fans are eager to see something they haven’t seen yet: the faces of her children.
During an interview with TVCMs Akindele-Bello explained the reasons behind her decision not to show her children’s faces to her fans, saying:
“Do I keep my family private? Ah ah, you see my house. Can’t you see my house? Don’t you know my husband? Don’t you see the back of my children? How is that private? oh oh He is not private oh, he sees everything.
“Okay, the kids face, is that what you’re trying to say? No. When they are old enough, they should show their face. If they want, they must show their faces. But for now, I don’t want them to show their faces. I want them to have their life and enjoy it. Her dad and I are already in the public eye. They are children, do not forget. They are children. They’re vulnerable, so you have to keep them away, keep them safe. That they go to school, that they enjoy their life without “Ah! That is Jenifa’s son. That’s JJC’s son. Ah, he looks at his leg, he looks at his face.” Keep them private!”
