      • Denise May 16, 2012 at 2:13 pm

    • Arikade May 16, 2012 at 1:38 pm

      Hey Berry,
      Do you know how to read clearly? PUNCH said, ” Speculations about any relationship between star actress Funke Akindele and actor Femi Adebayo is likely to soon be a thing of the past as the actress popularly known as Jenifa is set to wave the singles world”

  • obi May 16, 2012 at 12:48 pm

  • Ms Sexy May 16, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    wt funke’s exposure and education wonder why she feels she can nver get a single man that’ll care for her and adore her, a 2nd hand is always not a good story i beg and moreover, BN which wedding s coming up again n Dec? aftr d nikai and intro on may 26th nothing spectacular anymore, except d man wan surprise us walk am down d aisle @ d MFM, then i’ll know whatsup

    • Gidi May 16, 2012 at 2:56 pm

      You are making a far fetched assumption that she turned down single guys. Do you have proof of that? Some of these ladies have an anointing for ‘2nd wife’ syndromes.

  • damojo May 16, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    Funky Baby, like i always call her from my ISL days when she would sit in my class waiting to act her role in ‘I NEED TO KNOW’.
    I’m more than happy for u dear, we r gonna rock the engagement ‘parrie’ together LIVE………SULIA KHAN, AIYETORO KHAN!

  • funmi May 16, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    The most important is ‘LOVE’ which conquers all nothing to do with religion as long as she is happy am happy for her.
    Congrats Funke all the best.

  • Gidi May 16, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    And contrary to what some of you have heard, Kenny Almaroof is not married. And this is authoritative. He has children and a baby mama but has never taken any woman to court, to church or anywhere else.

    That is how the drama begins.

  • Ms Sexy May 16, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Gidi well done, culled from ikeji’s blog
    true to ur words, let d drama begins!

  • princess almaroof May 16, 2012 at 2:38 pm

All these guys are after your money. pls shine your eye ooooooooooooooooo. omo to shan

  • Mena Oudha May 16, 2012 at 3:33 pm

    Congrats to them…! I wish them a happy life together.

  • Lucy May 16, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Everyone talking about 2nd wife sef. Sharrraaap jare, for every 4 people commenting, at least 1 of you will be from a polygamous home, and out of the remaining 3, at least 2 of you if not the 3 remaining will have relatives (uncles, aunties, cousins) who are from polygamous homes, and the world hasnt ceased existing. So stop acting like she murdered sleep. Polygamy will never be removed from our culture. Even the so called monogamous homes sef, the husbands cheat like women are going into extinction. So lets be realistic abeg. Better, second wife and be sure of what you have, than only me and my husband (who probaly sleeps with half of Lagos). Congrats jare Funke. As long as you are happy, it is no one’s business who you choose to love. Standards will always remain an individual thing. If you choose to be your husband 1st wife, it doesnt guarantee happiness or fidelty, so stop being overly critical and hypocritical if i might add. See rhyming, i fit rap sef. LOL

    • Gidi May 17, 2012 at 7:42 am

      So in your mind, men in Polygamous marriages are immune from cheating?

    • Nwamaka May 17, 2012 at 8:00 am

      True talk.

    • pretty May 17, 2012 at 8:49 am


    • BB May 17, 2012 at 9:26 am

      This is the best comment I have read in all blogs and here. We are only being religious and not faithful to our Faiths. A lot of monogamy homes are waiting in Customary courts everyday, waiting to be divorced while some polygamous homes are till death do them part. I’m not saying monogamy or polygamy is the way but its an individual thing just as relationship with God is individual. We don’t know her personal story line and can’t judge based on the 2% of her life that we read on papers. Remember, be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. Congrats Funke!

  • jennietobbie May 16, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    Sulia baby,
    i heart Funke, she is soooooooooo real ooooo
    have a fab married life!

  • bebe May 16, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Firstly Funke’s mum I hear attends MFM. I’d like to then believe Funke comes from a Christian home. Then she is planning on getting married to a muslim. Just like that abi? What happened to the “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers?”
    Secondly, this man was quite comfortable having kids, not one o but more than one with the baby mama (or are they from different women) but he wasn’t comfortable with settling down with her. Funke do you really think this is a good idea? hmmm I hope wisdom will have its final say.

    Also on another note though. So Funke Akindele went to ISL? Really? So you be ajebo small then. But if den no tell me I for no know o. You act those raz parts so well.

  • mema May 16, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    if your almaroof asked them to marry him supposing he has a dozen kids and four wives they wont hesitate o!!!!
    congrats sweetie!

  • anonymous May 17, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    People should stop criticizing and judging others. What matters most in any given relationship is love and understanding, and I believe she is marrying him because she loves him and not because of money. 2nd, 3rd or 4th wife, we should wish her happiness, it’s her choice. Many single guys must have broken her heart and yet some peeps expect her to say no to a man who truly loves her in return and ready to wife her simply bcos he already had children.

  • Lucy May 17, 2012 at 5:10 pm

    Una thank you jare, those who agreed with my earlier comment. I like keeping it real, and no hypocrisy. She should have settled for a single man, she should have settled for a single man, why una no introduce her to your brother or cousin. Mschew. Which single man is holy and pure, or the best thing that can happen to a woman. As long as as you no marry the man as virgin. It doesn’t make a single man better than a divorcee, someone who already has a wife, or someone who has a baby mama. We all make the best we can of our relationships.
    @Gidi, I never said polygamy doesn’t encourage cheating, all I meant is, all is out in the open, not the one wife married men pretenders who have girlfriends from lagos to maiduguri
    All of una Mary Amaka, mother of Jesus and religion, when are we going to move past it as a nation ehn. We all serve on Maker o, one Creator. A happy Christian and Muslim home is ten times better than a bitter, unhappy and disgruntled, Christian Christian home, so make una go sit don a beg, and move on to the next topic. Una bad mouth don do.

  • faith May 17, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    If the guy ȋ̊§ still married τ̅☺ d mother of his children,…No she shuldnt go ahead wit d marriage…but if he was never married τ̅☺ his children mama den yes she shuld go ahead…If he ȋ̊§ a Muslim n she ȋ̊§ a Christian,…No she shuldnt go ahead!

    • Lucy May 17, 2012 at 6:42 pm

      Sorry my dear, no offence o, but you shouldn’t be giving spiritual advice, or on anything that has to do with christianity. On another write up, you were glorifying, and even encouraging pre marital sex. Skin to skin, if I can recall. You even gave us an example of your own experience, with the man you are married to (2nd marriage too if i also remember), you can’t pick and choose which of the Bible’s tenets, you will obey, and disregard the rest that don’t suit you. You can’t suddenly decide to be a “Christian” in this matter abeg

  • mereal May 17, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Funke has been keeping this low all the while and for her to have decided to let it out to the public means she has made her final decision on the matter: that is to say, ur comments wont change anything…. just wish her well, simple!!!

  • thomie May 18, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Awwww! Sulia miiii, m getn of ere to tel ma mum dis good news…she loves u̶̲̥̅̊ nd we wish you d very best. Congrats!!

  • my beat May 20, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    @Lucy, you & a few others are so real on BN. Abeg, is Funke asking all u bad bellics if she can go ahead with her marriage plans? No, she’s only informing, so why the sermon on mt Olives?. If u love her, just wish her well on the step she’s taking.

  • Purpleicious Babe May 24, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Nawhaaaaaaooooooo as innn see enemies of progress better still advocates of progress.. chai..

    This is a grown lady who is able to make her decisions and live with it.

    Why do we feel the need to come up and impose our ideologies on stuff that is between two consenting adults. WE DONT EVEN KNOW THIS FOR FACT. abi do u know??

    Whether he is married before and after shouldn’t that be funke’s headache… abi ohh.. I have my morals just like you do and she does. so leave her be. either you wish her well or u dont..


    “Rumours are carried by ENEMIES, Spread by IGNORANT, Received by FOOLS”.

    Pls lets know the facts sha…

    Funke, I wish all the best LORD has instore for u..
