Veteran Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele says that she faced some big challenges  before she decided to settle down with her husband Abdulrasheed Bello also known, JJC Skillz.

She disclosed this in a recent interview with Today’s Woman Magazine.

When asked how she was able to convince herself that JJC was the right man for her.

She said;

“There were rumours on set that he was being bossy. People were saying that he has three baby mamas. They now started this, ‘ Funke settles for less’ talk. I read comments like ‘three children? Baggage or why can’t she just settle with someone single?’ So, I decided to give myself the pep talk.

“I stood in front of the mirror and told myself, you are 39. Which of your mate is a single guy, or which one older than you is single, except he’s a widower or a divorcee at 40? If he’s not married, Ogun aye n ba ja (he is battling with terrestrial wars).

“Abdul – is he bossy? No. you’re together with him always. Abdul is forgiving and that is great! Someone has dealt with Abdul, he has forgiven the person, and he has moved on. He even invited the person on a project, can you imagine?

“I can be very vindictive, I will give my everything but once you mess up, to correct it is a problem for me, and I’m like for this man to be like this, he’s a good man. His kids are grown, and their mothers are all married, happily married, in their homes! I put it in before God that if it is in thy will for me to marry Abdul, let it work, but if there will be problems, let everyone go in peace. That’s what I told God, it’s you and I leave it to you.”

“Being rich is not the birthright of men alone” – Linda Ikeji to ladies

Linda Ikeji speaks on definition of success

Nigerian celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, has advised ladies, saying being rich is not the birthright of men alone.

On Thursday afternoon, she shared her definition of success as a woman on her Instagram page and shared how she believed women should view themselves.

Linda Ikeji wrote, “Dear young lady, I hear you! If that’s how you see life and want to live life, it’s your choice! To each his own. As for me, I’d rather be as rich as those men who must pay me for being beautiful. Being rich is not the birthright of men alone. I’d rather be their contemporary than waiting for their handouts.

I know many believe it’s a man’s world; maybe it is, but with fearlessness, strength, determination, and grace, women can dominate and thrive in it. So, instead of waiting for men’s charity, I’d rather start early to fight for my dreams, build my business(es), break boundaries, and if God allows, shatter tables.

I want to get to a point in my life where I can get myself anything I want that money can buy without having to beg or sleep with any man to get it. I want to go into a store, see a $60k Cartier watch that I love, and pay for it, instead of wondering which man I’ll call and plotting all the things I will say and do to get him to buy it for me.

I know that my greatest superpower as a woman is being financially independent, as this will give me the choice to live life on my own terms, date or marry whoever my heart wants and walk away when it no longer serves me, instead of being forced to stick with a man I can no longer stand because I can’t stand on my own.

I want when a man comes into my life, no matter how rich he is, for his money to be a bonus and not my only source of livelihood. And as he gives to me, which I will happily collect, I will give to him in return.

I want to dress as sexy as I like and enter any place without a man walking up to me and asking how much it will cost to take me home for the night because he knows who the F I is… a boss babe with her own business as rich as he is.. or maybe even richer! .

Seriously, I’d rather, if God forbid I end up with a deadbeat, be able to give my child(ren) the absolute best life without having to be at the mercy of a scornful & bitter ex.

With all humility, I refuse for the quality of my life to be dependent on the benevolence of men. I want the protection, power, and security that comes with having my own money. But like I said in the beginning, that’s just me! To each his own!.”
