Afunkiss 3

It has been confirmed, Funke Akindele and Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede are no longer a couple.

After staying mum on recent reports that she and her property developer husband of 1 year and 46 days have split, the actress released a statement via her publicist/sister Ayo Ola-Muhammed.

Read the Official Statement;

Dear Friends,
On behalf of our client, star actress, Funke Akindele, we want to formally inform you that after due consultation and consideration, she’s now separated from Mr. Kehinde Oloyede as his wife. She hereby urges her fans and all concerned to pray and wish her the best as she moves on in her career. Kindly note that this is the first and only official statement from Funke Akindele on the matter and will be glad if her wish is respected. Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Ayo Ola- Muhammed,
Principal Consultant
NEECEE Entertainment.

The actress recently had a short interview with blogger/journalist Stella Dimoko Korkus  on her blog StellaDimokoKorkus.com through a telephone conversation. Read the interview;

Funke how do you feel now that your marriage has ended after just a year? You must be going through a hard time right now. People are laughing at you.
…….thank you for calling Stella. First of all let me clarify that I have not replied any sms or spoken to anyone on this development before now and neither have I threatened to sue anyone, I do not know who sent out that sms denying that my marriage is over, that was what necessitated me sending out a press release so as not to confuse the public, especially my fans whom I’m so passionate about. I’ve been unable to pick calls due to my busy schedule on set and I needed to settle down before picking any calls, so you called at the right time.

I will address this issue now and thereafter face my career and try to concentrate on the things i have on my plate at the moment…Yes my marriage has crashed.

Let the people who are laughing at me continue laughing, my job afterall is to make people laugh. Let those who are without sins or mistake cast the first stone. Let them continue judging me. God is the overall judge, he is the one I look up to.

I am shocked Funke. Why the silence all this while why? why Facebook?
It’s my private life, I know I am a public figure but I am entitled to some privacy at least. What has happened has happened, No one is beyond mistakes. I will take corrections from this and apply where necessary from now on. I bear Mr Kehinde Oloyede no ill feelings.

We wish Funke all the best.

      A lot can happen in a year. if it’s truly over, it’s best to let it go. People said the same thing about Kim K but now she just had a baby with someone else. I’m not suggesting Kim K is anybody’s role model but really her situation does show sometimes it’s best to move on fast rather than holding on to nothing

    Before you start judging, look inwards! You meet someone fall in love and hope and pray for a happy forever after but sometimes things just dont go as planned so you have to opt out and jog on…it doesnt mean neither party is wrong it just means they are not suited for each other, so before you start running your mouths, i will suggest you look inwards!!!

      I understand anyone’s point of view if the person chooses to divorce or not, but I believe so much in my Religion (Christianity) which is against divorce and regards it sinful. I hurt God the day I divorce, so i think i would prefer when the two parties are separated due to misunderstandings but not going the extra length to divorce. Its bad!! “Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” —Matthew 19:6; In Matthew 5:32, Jesus said, “But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.” Gurlfriend… dont take it as an option.

    Marriage is not easy especially the first year. It takes a lot to adjust your life to accommodate your spouse.i guess they couldn’t make it past the 1 year mark cos they’ve surely been seperated for a while.
    In her case, I guess there were many factors she overlooked or undermined, and those factors later caused huge challenges to her marriage. All is well Funke, at least you learnt your lessons and hopefully you haven’t given up on love.

    Heard the dude got 2 ladies pregnant after they were married. Might be a rumour, might be untrue but if it really happened, i will understand her wanting out. Humans are not infallibe, so i wish her well in her future endeavours. it is sad!

    Abegiiiiii!, did she not see the signs? I understand that he had another woman abi women before her, he cheats to be with you, he will also cheat on you, did she expect him to change just like that? I am married and I have found that whatever behaviour a person exhibits while courting is as good as the marriage will get, people should show some responsibility for their actions and stop adding to to the divorce stats

    • slice

      July 20, 2013 at 5:48 pm

      Most of us have been with other people before we marry someone. If he was not married to any of those women, nothing says she can’t marry him. just cause you’re someone’s baby mama doesn’t mean he’s married to you

    • jcsgrl

      July 23, 2013 at 12:45 pm

      Slice I believe what lolly is referring is the content of the man’s character. If he cheated on girlfriends and was a serial dater, the chances of him cheating in marriage is infact guaranteed. What you see before courtship is what you get. If a man or woman cannot commit to a relationship and be faithful, don’t expect them to commit to your marriage. Yes most of us dated people before marriage but how did we date? Were we monogamous? Did we hop from man to man?

      I feel sorry for Jenifa because I love her so much. But your point about pre-marital behavior patterns is dead on. Behaviors don’t change past teenage years unless the person experiences a literal transfiguration. I once almost married a playboy. He Loved me no doubt but without variety I believe he’d die a painful death. Aboutevery month, there wasa new suspicious case. Luckily he dumped me for another. Opened my eyes to my decent hubby who has not cheated at least to my face or knowledge. Now he is miserable in his marriage because his wife has becOme a serious monitoring spirit. He does not even understand that her behavior is a reflection of his. Poor woman. if I married him, I woulda been married to a pussy ninja.

    Buttttttt, ladies it is not just about following your heart! Your heart and head should work together on such matters. Marriage is basically and life sentence o. So you need to shine your eyes before you go into it. It ain’t about butterflys in your stomach!

    Well if reports doing the rounds online that she married an already married man with 2 or 3 other women and almost 10 children who is a known philanderer then she definitely knew what she was getting herself into. Some reports claimed that she was having second thoughts but the marriage preparations were at an advanced stage and she couldn’t call it off to which I say a broken engagement better pass broken marriage and at the same time marriage is not the end all be all neither is it a do or die affair. A leopard does not change its spots I just hope other ladies and their families learn from this story because most women marry due to pressure from family and society even when they are not ready and almost always end up marrying the wrong person due to pressure. All the best Funke and may you look well well before you leap next time we all make mistakes but do not make the same mistake twice.

    You can not gain your happiness through others’ misery. You loose them how you get them and when a man marries his mistress, he creates an opening for a mistress. And please don’t come at me with “god” nonsense, what do you expect with man who abandons his own children? Every lost time and love those kids missed, you get to pay, God don’t like ugly.

    I like funke a lot……………but if i remember correctly lots of people warned her and were against the marriage as the guy already had wives and kids, also she is a christian and he a muslim (religion can be a factor sometimes)…all the best though

  19. Suyacrush

    July 20, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    So sad, but better now than later. When it comes to marriage I believe it’s good to take time to know who you are getting hitched to.
    “The same belt used to beat the former wife will be used for the new wife” , the guy has never looked like her match to me; but once again when you are in love it is hard to see past one’s heart
    . My courtship took a long time, to the point where people thought I was too much(my mum wanted me married already…) but thanks to my friends I was able to see aspects that I couldn’t see due to my love for my husband(boyfriend at that time)
    Today I’m married to him and trust me I thank God for the time I took to know him. That time gave room to me being able to preset my boundaries and him knowing what not to bring to me.
    Funke we love you and know that God never gives you what you can’t handle. Your charming prince is very much out there somewhere. May God give you the strength to move forward.

    Like my pastor Dollar Said and Myles Monroe Said, if you decide to break contract with God which is marriage which you did before him, then invite all the people whom you invited to your wedding and do the breakage in front of God and all your invited guest again. Nowadays, people put them first before God first. It was soooo bad it could not be worked out because you will die if you dont get out abi? No sacrifice whatsoever for children of nowadays. Just up and leave after one sneeze.

    In Gods eyes this contract is not broken, and unless yall fix this shyt, you will marry and marry and marry and marry to no avail till kingdom come. GO to youtube and listen to myles munroe tapes you will learn somthing about marriage.

I was very certain the only reason she hooked up with this big papa to start with was to fulfill all righteousness. Anyways I wish her all the best, wish she came out of the relationship with a baby though (if she wanted one), that way she go just face her career and pikin.

    Trials and tribulations of a single 30+ year old Nigerian/African women. My dear fellow women, una see wetin una side mouth they force your fellow women folk do? Its so sad that you can be an extremely accomplished individual, happy in your career, life and family but as long as you are not married with 3/4 kids at 35, people, in particular fellow women, start calling you a failure, promiscuous, don’t want you around for fear you may steal their husbands.

    Marriage is not by force oh. My fellow women please don’t let societal pressure force you into unions with partners where you’re unevenly yoked. At the end of the day, the people who are pushing you and eat all the food and dance all the azonto at your wedding will not be there inside the house when the man is beating you or gives you an STD.

    Whoever said marriage is a bed full of sweet smelling roses? There r thorns on d stems of roses abeg. What is marriage without a little endurance? Funke should ask her mum if her own marriage was devoid of problems. D reason there r so many broken homes today is cos pple know that there is a back door out. If u take marriage as a life long COMMITMENT then ppl will learn to work out their differences. Funke had her doubts before d marriage or better still saw dangerous unhealthy signs but she shrugs them off in the hope that things will naturally work themselvess out(when we get to dat brigdge we ll cross it syndrome) or if it doesn’t WORK out,I’ll WALK out. Funke,my advice is this,pray to ur God nd ask for help nd go work things out wth ur hubby for God HATES divorce.

    nonsense!
    when you leave the owner out of His matter,that is what happens.
    these entertainers don’t stop amusing us.even when they are not on set,they amuse the devil with their real lives,because to me,all this their nonsense lifestyle is not funny at all!
    You people need to know God for who is actually is.He instituted marriage,why not use His manual and do what he asks you to do?
    i know i’ve taken it personally;i’m sorry,i’m not trying to be insensitive to your plight.i really care about you guys,and really wish every marriage out there would work.however,that’s not achieved by wishful thinking; the truth has to be told.
    it’s not just about getting born again or going to church,we really need to know him and know what he would have us do.
    you may know some people who do not know God or His style,and you think since they are doing “well”,you can imitate them,that’s a lie of the devil’s.
    having said all this,life should go on,and must go on.but how can life go on well without the owner?we have a part of Him in us,the breath of life,and as long as we live we should daily,in fact always activate that part by staying connected to the Spirit(His Word is Spirit).This is eternal life!Eternal life does not start when one is dead,it starts here.Neither does it mean living forever,because everyone eventually will,the difference will be where you live.
    “And this is life eternal,that they might know thee the only true God,and Jesus Christ,whom thou hast sent”.John 17:3
    funke,we still love you,even much more at this time.may God help you through this trying time.

    So what if a man is muslim or buddhist or Hindu? Are we not all human? Is love not meant to surpass such barriers? Aren’t we meant to love our ‘neighbours’ as we love ourselves? Aren’t our neighbours meant to be any other person; irrespective of race, nationality, ethnicity or even religious affiliation? Is God not love? All these people passing judgement on others… Doesn’t your bible say: ‘Let he who is without sin be the first to cast the stone?’… All these people with ”holier than thou” attitudes, you focus and dwell on the lesser lessons in the scripture.. A woman gets married and for whatever reason decides to divorce and all you can do is pass judgement over her and chastise her.. As humans, we are all liable to making mistakes. My wish and prayer for her is that this episode of her life would go a long way to help her make better choices in the future…

      Actually, Warren is not an Old English name, which means ‘watchman’. It is not a biblical name, so he might not be a Christian

    SPEACHLESS FUNKE IT’S SO SAD BUT I SAW IT COMING FROM D DAY ONE anyway, NOT BECAUSE D GUY WAS MARRIED BUT BECAUSE WHY WOULD A CHRISTAIN WOMAN MARRY A MUSLIM? DON’T GET ME WRONG AM NOT PREACHING RELIGION BUT WHEN U ARE MRFRIED TO SAME FAITH, WHEN THERE ARE ISSUES U CALL ON THE SAME GOD TO SEE U THROUGH, MY FIRST 3YEARS IN MARRAGE THERE WHERE CHALLENGES BUT BECAUSE MY HUBBY AND I KNEW THAT CHRISTIANTY IS FOR LIFE WE CALLED ON GOD IN ALL CHALENGES AND THAT SAME GOD HAS SEEN US THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS AND WE JUST FALL IN LOVE OVER AND OVER AGAIN…

      It’s good to be spiritually in tune with your spouse but there are many many interfaith marriages that are successful so your argument lacks depth. It’s easy to judge from afar when you haven’t walked a mile in someone’s shoes. What has religion done for your country with all the churches and mosques out there. We should be the best country in the world if it were for religious worship. Many are flawed in character and that’s the problem. Very mean, self serving and judgemental and blind to ones faults but quick to point at others. Leave God out of shallow hypocrisy.

      Why do people always blame Nigeria’s problems on religion. What has religion got to do with our present state? Our current state is the result of people’s greediness and quest for power and money. I’m pretty sure that is not what my Bible preaches.

    • Naija4life

      July 25, 2013 at 12:39 am

      @ OYINADE nobody is blaming religion for Nigeria’s problems but it makes sense to conclude that we are so religious that it has to at least reflect in the character of our people and nation in general, what we have instead in hypocrisy, bigotry and intolerance as you can see from all these comments…Please read QURAN verse 2:177 and JAMES 1 verse 22…

    So wat if a xtian marries a Muslim. Pple shud forget religion and place more emphasis on the values of the life they live.Marrieage is not an easy institution&a lot of marital burden is on the woman. Marriage is not. Compulsory

    The marriage shouldn’t av happened in the 1st place. The voice of the people is the voice of God more often than not. Too many anomalies were evident from the start. Funke dear, may God guide you aright in your future endeavours. May HE grant us all wisdom to make the right choices in our lives in Jesus’ name. It is well.

    FunkeI am talking from experience, find your way back to God and He shall direct your path. Only Him can guide when it comes to marriage. Dont lose focus on your career, dont rush into another one. Just be calm and see how He will work things out. More grace next time.

    FUNKE, I WOULD HAVE ADVISE U 2 TRY AND FACE THE CHALLENGES IN UR MARITAL LIFE BECAUSE D BIBLE SAYS 4 BETTER 4 WORSE BUT NOT IN UR OWN CASE FUNKE, THOUGH D TRUTH IS BITTER BUT THANK GOD U REALIZE THAT EARLIER. U A CHRISTIAN A MFM MEMBER 4 THAT MATER? U DON’T DESERVE SOME 1 LIKE THAT GUY WHO HAS ALREADY MARRIED TO ALMOST 3 WIVES AND HAVING CHILDREN AGAIN FROM EVERY AVAILABLE WOMEN, NO! FUNKE U DON’T REALLY DESERVE HIM AT ALL. BUT FUNKE I BET U IF U CAN JUST BRING URSELF LOW AND SINCERELY PRAYING TO GOD, HE WILL DEFINITELY GIVE U UR OWN HEART DESIRE BEYOND WHT U EVER ASKED FOR. NEVER D LESS I WISH U ALL D BEST AND MAY GOD GRANT U UR OWN BONE OF BONE AND FLESH OF UR OWN FLESH IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

    @Mtscheeew my dear let be tell you one thing and let it be very clear to everyone today that if you get married as a second wife God did not honour that marriage and it in the first place you were never married because God’s opinion about marriage is ONE MAN ONE WIFE so as a christian your principle applies to the first wife not other wives and i wish funke all the best its so painful and i pray you find your way back to the cross you deviated but GOd still loves you and he is waiting to give you rest and that man that will love and cherish you

    I don’t know why people are saying the interviewer is insensitive. Stella Dimoko Korkus has never been one to sugar coat matters, she will give it to you straight no chaser so to many who may not follow her blog, it sounds insensitive but to those who know her, this is just blunt Stella. And may I ask, is it not true that folks are laughing at her? Many are snickering amongst her very acting colleagues, family, freidns and fans.

    Yes, the interviewer could have phrased it differently and folks are wrong to laugh at her but it doesn’t change the fact that it is happening because in addition to many of the fans onlines saying “don’t do it”, I am sure family and friends told her that it was a bad idea.

    She walked into it with her eyes open and thank God she had the good sense to walk out of it with her eyes open and WITHOUT a child. Because if she were to have had a child that would mean that fool would be a part of her life forever. She should thank God for small mercies and take her time next time when seeking a life mate and partner. I believe work schedules, religion/values and all them babies/baby mamas may have contributed to the demise of the marriage. If the dude is a traditionalist expecting his dinner at 7pm piping hot on the table as I suspect, with Funke on set until 2am, this was not going to work. BEFORE you marry someone, you have to sort out how things are going to be done because truly speaking na the small small tings dem dey spoil marriage o not really the big things.

    You are right o, my sister. Marriage in Nigeria is a do or die thing. If you know what many married women go thru just to hold on to their marriages, you will weep. Many live daily in pain and misery just to bear Mrs Somebody. They put on a brave face outside, but inside they are miserable. Yet they are the same people who bad mouth single ladies who are facing their careers and lives and doing the best they can under the circumstances. I think it’s just jealousy cos the single lady still has options to make the right choice while they have lost that forever… I feel pity for these miserable so called married women…

    @Mschewwww. which contract? The one he made with his previous wives or with his own personal idol? Abeg, siddon! Funke is better off without this “person” in her life. I think she must have had an aberrant brain wave when she decided to marry him. It is better to be single than to be married in sorrow. Funke, better luck next time. Now you see that infatuation is different from love and you will surely do better next time. If your family, friends and the general population unanimously think he is no good, they are probably right.

    i need you to be watchful and prayerful as u continue your journey, too many are actually looking and hoping your downfall. its a call to recall who you are and where you are going. may the Lord of all open your eyes and enlighten the eyes of your understanding to behold what His desire is for you. Be real with your God, He knows you well. take care of yourself and also work on yourself more. as much as your fan is to be pleased more so and more than that is your God be pleased. Marriage, Carrier, Personal life, needed to be well taken care off in their own phases. May the good God help you. may the lord pray for you as He did for Apostle Peter….. Love you.
