After many rounds of rife speculations of their love tango, actress, Funke Akindele and musician, JJC of the 419 Squad reportedly got married secretly in London yesterday.
Interestingly, it was the day Funke celebrated her birthday, but perhaps what irked many about the secret wedding was the absence of Funke’s family members at the nuptials.
Apart from Funke’s youngest sister, Abimbola, who was only invited to London hastily by Funke, without even being told of the impending wedding until she got to London, no other member of the Akindele family was present at the wedding.Funke-Akindele
A source close to the family revealed that the conspicuous absence of Funke’s principal family members at the wedding could not be unconnected to the fact that the family was not in support of the relationship between Funke and JJC .
So it was only natural for Funke to shut them out of the wedding, since they were never in support of the affair after all, especially her mother, who never hid her disdain for Funke-weddingFunke’s new choice of another man in her life, after her much celebrated first wedding to Lagos big boy, Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede, packed off irretrievably, about four years ago .
The source disclosed further that the most devastating part of the scenario was that her family members also got to know about Funke’s wedding when it buzzed the web, a situation which came to the entire family as a shock and rude embarrassment.
The big question, however, on the lips of many is: why would Funke shut out her family from her wedding, even if they had a different opinion about her choice?
