I Rushed Into My First Marriage Because Of Pressure – Funke Akindele
Nigerian actress, Funke Akindele has disclosed why she rushed into her first marriage with Adeola Kehinde Oloyede.
Speaking during an Interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Funke openly said the only reason why she wanted to share that part of her life is to encourage ladies out there that are in a rush to get married.
She also urged the ones that feel bad and are pressured to get married to calm down, take their time adding that if they rush in, they will be forced to rush out.
“I don’t want to drag anybody. I’ll talk about myself. I just wanted to get married. Children, pressure and all that.
”The marriage ended in a bad way. I was filming when someone called and told me. I wanted to die. I cried and lost a lot of deals.
“I survived that period by channelling my pain into work. I was collecting every script from the East and acting.
“I rushed into the marriage out of pressure and it didn’t end well,” she said.
Funke further advised women never to be pressured into getting married or having children as it will not end well.
Recall that Funke and Kehinde walked down the aisle on May 26, 2012, but divorced in July 2013, citing irreconcilable differences.
However, in May 2016 she walked down the aisle again with Nigerian rapper JJC Skillz in London.
