Staractress, Funke Akindele, has how she survived the crashing of her marriage to JJC Skillz, a talent manager.

She also reflected on the lesson she learnt from it.

In a recent interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Funke said she made a mistake by rushing into getting married.

Unfortunately, things did not work out as expected, which resulted in a widely publicised divorce, she noted.

The consequences of the divorce, according to her, included lost business opportunities and the emotional toll it had on her.

However, her mother played a crucial role in helping her navigate through this challenging period.

She wants younger ladies to learn from her experiences and avoid rushing into marriage.

“Take your time, if you rush in you will rush out. You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that.

When I went into the marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way. On social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me. I wanted to die!

“You know I cried, lost some good deals then. But I didn’t let it break me. Thank God for my mum who encouraged me to put more effort to work. I channelled the energy to work and I kept saving more. I didn’t let the situation break me.
