Why I married Funke Akindele – JJC Skillz

Husband to popular Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has explained why he got married to the actress.

JJC Skillz said he approached Akindele in 2012 after he had a dream that he would get married to the actress.

According to him, though things did not work out between them in 2012, he followed his dream and 4-years later, in 2016, he got married to Akindele in August.

JJC further urged Nigerians to pay attention to their dreams because they could be telling you things you need to know.

He wrote: “I have to testify. God is great. I had a dream one night around Christmas 2012 that I will be married to Funke Aakindele and believing in the mighty God I trust, I approached and she didn’t believe me.

“A week of romance ended, we broke up and I wrote a song to send a message of what is to come.

“My God has never lied or lead me astray. A year later she had a calling to find me and so the story continues. The Master architect is at work.”

Recall that the couple who got married in 2016 recently welcomed a set of twin.

Vogue Brazil executive Donata Meirelles quits over ‘slavery’ party picture | World News

The style director of the Brazilian edition of Vogue has quit after an image taken at her 50th birthday party was condemned for depicting scenes of slavery from colonial times.

A guest at the lavish party, held in Bahia, northeastern Brazil, posted a picture showing Donata Meirelles sat on an elaborate, throne-like chair, flanked by black women in traditional white dress.

Critics likened the women’s clothes to the uniforms worn by house slaves, and pointed out the chair’s similarity to one commonly used by slave masters.

Marie Claire columnist Stephanie Ribeiro said on Twitter: “The black women were used as objects to create an exotic scene.

“It’s reminiscent of colonialism and romanticises those times. She was recreating the image where whites are superior and blacks are dehumanised.”

Ms Meirelles insisted in an Instagram post that the chair was an artefact from the Afro-Brazilian folk religion candomblé, and the clothes were traditional Bahian party attire.

“Even so, if I caused any different impressions, I am sorry,” she added.

In a statement on Instagram, the magazine said: “Vogue Brasil profoundly regrets what happened and hopes that the debate that has been generated serves as a learning experience.

“We believe in affirmative and purposeful actions and also that empathy is the best alternative for the construction of a more just society, in which the historical inequalities of the country are debated and faced.

Vogue has said it will also create a panel of activists and academics to help produce content to combat inequalities.
