The pair of Funke Akindele and Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC have both revealed through a statement signed by their publicist Biodun Kupoluyi why they both chose to make their wedding ceremony a quite one.
In the statement, the couple revealed that they both decided to wed quietly in London because they didn’t want to be in the spotlight having walked that lane in the past.
“The decision to do it quietly was right for us and we pray for the understanding of our close friends and fans at this offer of a lifetime moment. At a good time, we shall look back and in appreciation of divine grace and your support, we shall celebrate milestones and where we are in life.”
“The working couple has since hit the ground running, shooting scenes for the new episode, Jenifa In London for the running sit-com, Jenifa’s Diary. Jenifa In London, Funke Akindele hinted would be premiered at a high-octane event in London and Lagos. The couple would return to Nigeria soon.” The statement read in full.
