Funke Akindele’s Late Honeymoon: Why Late Honeymoons Are the Coolest
Funke Akindele and her husband JJC Skillz are currently in the Seychelles for their honeymoon, and this comes 7 months after they tied the knot in a private affair in London.
The couple took to their Instagram yesterday to share loved up photos of them walking the vast beach, lounging by the pool, looking absolutely like bestfriends turned husband-and-wife.
It is unclear why Akindele and her husband chose to delay their honeymoon, but following their recent activities, we are guessing these are some of the reasons they chose a late honeymoon.
- Jenifa’s Diary
The famous TV series Jenifa’s Diary, staring the actress, is co-produced by the hardworking couple. After their secret London wedding, the couple returned to Nigeria to work, creating more episodes of the series. And their hardwork paid off: At the 2017 AMVCAs, Jenifa’s Diary won the category for the Best TV Series, while Funke Akindele herself bagged the award for the Best Actress in a Comedy.
2. The lavish Lagos home
In December, the couple gifted themselves a superb Lagos mansion located at Amen Estate along Eleko Beach in Lekki, Lagos. The couple knew there is no need to rush and spend money on a honeymoon that could be well-planned, and so they took the most important step by getting themselves a new home, away from the messy drama of JJC’s old home.
The housewarming was attended by top acts, and shortly after, JJC took to Instagram to brag about their achievement. Who wouldn’t!
Part 2: Location for delivery is always the first thing I ask for, when @jjcskillz Told me the location was @amen_estate_lagos I wanted to faint, I was like heck no!!! 😂😂😂😂 that's a long journey. But little did we know, the road was smooth all the way, in less than an hour, we got to our destination. When we got to the estate hhhhhhhmmmm . All I could say to myself was, I had to start saving to get a property @amen_estate_lagos , so peaceful, children friendly, security on point, trust me guys, it was worth the drive, good job sir @babatundegbadamosi 👏👏👏 I remember asking @funkejenifaakindele If we could post the video, she said to me, if her husband says it is OK, talk about a submissive and virtue woman. @jjcskillz is also a definition of a good husband, I have approached many men in this business, asking them to surprise wifey, and they say to me, 'abegi jor' don't ever take your spouse,friends, family for granted, always do something to remind them you still care, using Royal Hugs obviously 😂😂😂😂 So this was very romantic and thoughtful of you @jjcskillz God bless your home in Jesus name . Would be doing a part 3 later in the day. #aaaawwwhh #royalhugs #surprisedelivery #love #family #happy #queen #luxury #luxurygifts
3. And it’s time for honeymoon!
With the success of their TV series and also settling well into their Lagos home, the couple finally chose the famous archipelago – Seychelles – located on the Indian Ocean, which boasts of 115 Islands. Some of the celebrities who agree that the spot is the best place for a honeymoon include actor George Clooney and his wife, Amal.
Now, Funke Akindele and her husband are having the best time of their lives and we say it is a holiday well-deserved!
