Nigerians have taken to social media to congratulate popular actress, Funke Akindele, on the birth of twins.
The ‘Jenifa’ star actress is married to Abdulrasheed Bello, popularly known in the entertainment industry as JJC Skillz.
Disclosing the news of the birth on Saturday, Mo Abudu posted on Instagram: “This is a real season of joy and happiness for us all. It is with the utmost pleasure, excitement and all glory of our Lord that we share in the good news of the birth of our bundles of joy — the baby boy twins of our darling @funkejenifaakindele and her husband @jjcskillz. I am already on the queue to be godmother. God be praised. We ask that God continues to bless them, protect them and favour them greatly now and always.”
Omotunde Adebowale-David, popularly known as Lolo, who also plays the renowned ‘Adaku’ role in the Jenifa series, shared the news on Instagram, with a post that read: “Jehova, the one who knows how to shut the mouth of naysayers… I bow before you. I knew that God would do what no man can do and it is before this I bow. Iya Ibeji… What a marvellous God we serve. Funke, I know you will be singing old school gospel right now because you love them so much”.
A post by @jhoystin read: “Social media is jubilating. Families are rejoicing with you. Congratulations. This 2018 ended well for us”.
Aside a series of post on her Instastory alluding to the birth, the Akindeles have not officially announced the news.
Some messages on her Instastory, which were posted in the very early hours of Saturday, read: “Thank you Lord”; “Mo je oruko titun”; “Emi ti a da lewa Olorun”; “A ti fi oruko titun pe mi”, among others.
However, messages have continued to pour in from friends and well-wishers congratulating the couple.
As expected, the news of the birth of the twins has triggered much excitement, as although it isn’t JJC Skillz’s first child, it is a first for Funke Akindele, who is 41 years old.
Besides, one Pastor Olagorioye Faleyimu had prophesied in the past that the ‘Jenifa’ actress may never have children.
Forbes names highest paid actors in the world [Top 10]
American actor and World Wrestling Entertainment, WWE, veteran, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, sits on top of the log.
In the latest ranking, the renowned wrestler climbed from his number-two placing last year.
This is despite his $89.4m (£73.6m) earnings actually being less than the $119m (£98.1m) he made in 2018.
He was the world’s number-two last year while last year’s number-one actor, George Clooney, is now out of the top 10.
That’s because his high earnings on the 2018 list were down with the sale of his tequila company in a deal worth $1bn (£753m).
The ranking is based on celebrities’ overall earnings, including brand endorsements and doesn’t solely consist of payments for acting.
Here’s the list of top 10:
1. Dwayne Johnson – $89.4m (£73.6m)
2. Chris Hemsworth – $76.4m (£62.9m)
3. Robert Downey Jr – $66m (£54.4m)
4. Akshay Kumar – $65m (£53.5m)
5. Jackie Chan – $58m (£47.8m)
6. Bradley Cooper – $57m (£46.9m)
7. Adam Sandler – $57m (£46.9m)
8. Chris Evans – $43m (£35.4m)
9. Paul Rudd – $41m (£33.8m)
10. Will Smith – $35m (£28.8m)
BBNajia: Don Jazzy reacts as Frodd washes for Esther
Frodd, who seems to be obsessed with his love for Esther, had on Tuesday told the female housemate that only her towel was left unwashed having washed every other thing for her, promising to wash the towel on Wednesday.
This particular action by Frodd stirred reactions among BBNaija followers and Don Jazzy, who is a top fan of the reality show, as he mocked Frodd, calling him a ‘washerman’.
Alongside a video of the Frodd revealing his intention to wash Esther’s towel, Don Jazzy tweeted, “Frodd my guy. Abeg what’s the name of Esther’s soap? #bbnaija #WasherMan.”
DAILY POST recalls that Esther had earlier turned down Frodd’s proposal which pushed him to tears.
Big Brother had also warned Frodd for attempting to touch Esther against her will on Saturday night.
Frodd, after the Saturday night party, was seen on Esther’s bed without underwear while trying to touch and caress her body
