    Someone please clarify. Is funke dating a man with three children? If so, how old is Funke and has her desperation reached that level!

      Watch the way you talk please. Funke is an amazing person and she deserves all the happiness in the world.
      In other news… I am happy for her, if she’s happy. I hope this is the person for you. You know sometimes we has humans tend to go through the traumatisation, hardship, mistakes and failed relationships before we get to the perfect. I hope she strengthened through it all. May this be a joyful beginning for her. She deserves it, her humility and vibrancy is outta this world.

      Woahhh, it doesn’t have to be desperation. Frankly I’m curious about JJC’s kid. Is Wizkid a future him (or he a future Wizkid) or is he responsible?

      They do look cute together

      Just SHUT IT. How is it your concern? What if they do really and genuinely like each other? How does this translate to desperation? A Guy with kids or without who is to say who will treat her best? Her happiness is what is paramount and if he makes her happy then so be it. Tired of people especially NIGERIANS questioning others decision. If it doesn’t work out it doesn’t it’s her life . mtchewww

      I love your comment. No one has the right to dictate how and who one loves, whether the woman is older/younger. As long as they are compatible with each other and their is patience and understanding. I believe LOVE conquers all. All the haters, can have several seats to the back.

      Wait so dating a single man with 3 kids is desperate?? Wow you must be stuck in a village somewhere in the 1930s with that backward mentality :/

    • Rhema

      April 4, 2016 at 11:03 pm

      yep it’s the 21st century but guess how many single Naija men with no baggage will date a woman with 3 kids. . You think if she had her pick of men she’d opt for the one with baggage? The reality is when girls get desperate,, standards fall and they become less selective.such is life. Wishing her more luck than the mother of those 3 kids.

    • uru

      April 4, 2016 at 7:54 pm

      So because she’s dating a man with three children she is desperate? Do you know that many people marry wrong and eventually leave because they are not happy? So if people like that finally find happiness, they shouldn’t go for it?
      Do you realise the fact that not all women are desperate to marry?
      Would you say the man was desperate if tables were turned? If Funke had 3 children and this man had none, would you say this?
      You need to get over yourself!

      Being with a man with three kids is not the issue, the issue is being with a man with three kids from three woman. There is a problem with such a man and you all are busy hailing Funke on cos you will feel she is amazing and so can go ahead and find joy anywhere even when she goes to a place that has no joy written boldly like this one. She was warned about her first husband too but she never heeded. How can a man have three kids from three women and you guys think such a man is responsible and alright? What kind of a relationship value are we building? surely non. This is no curse, but this alleged marriage can never last because the guy doesn’t look serious from his way of life.

      Chinedu, marrying a man with kids is not desperation. If she loves him and he is not seeing any other woman why can’t she be with him?

    • Eze1

      August 31, 2016 at 10:31 am

      But marrying a man with three kids from three women is problem and smirks desperation. She can’t see the man as having a problem just as she never saw her first husband

      First, Funke herself is a divorcee. Not dat that even matters.
      I’m happy if she’s happy. What’s wrong if d guy has 3kids. I’m sure ur type has gotten 3girls pregnant in school and u got it “taken care of”.
      So far he isn’t legally married to anyone and he has gud intentions. No biggie.
      Funke is a mature woman, sure she can handle herself in d rltshp.

      You BN commenters are hypocrite so yall can fight for funke and bash anna banner? U pple choose who to support and who to bash. Ya ll constantly bash those baby mamas and funke is dating a man with 3 kids or is it wizkid’s tania u pple did not bash and u pple bash annie idibia. I am nt sayin funke is wrong or watevr but the hypocrisy naah bye! Whther its different scenerio o fact is all these men have kids!

      Funke ask ciara wat happened with her and future. I dnt knw wats goin on or watver but i think u dnt need any man from entertainment industry…goodluck.

    • Jay

      Squad, Funke didn’t have sex and get pregnant for a Man with a baby mama who he was dating, she wasn’t publicly fighting over a guy with a woman and a child; she should have known better. You cannot compare Funke with Anna. If anything, in this case, the word “desperate” should be used for Anna. Go and sleep, hypocrites ko, hyprocrites ni. In retrospect, although I’m very skeptical of her choice, her dating him doesn’t make her desperate and you CANNOT compare her situation with that of Anna. Very different.

      Tuface’s ex Sunbo had three boys or so. Someone married her, no one called the Pastor desperate. You people just sit down here and make noise, playing God. I hope her bf/fiancé loves and respects her and isn’t threatened by her success. Notwithstanding, I don’t think it’s anybody’s business seeing as you don’t know who your God-given Prince Charming is, or if he’ll ever come. Also, you don’t know how your marriage may play out even if you marry a single man with no children. You’re not God. Don’t say what He will use and curse you.

      Haa! How naïve
      I took a chance and married a divorcée with a kid and it is the best decision I ever made. Thank God I did not listen to narrow minded people like Chinedu else would have missed an opportunity of a lifetime. And no, I was not old and he was not richer than me when we got married. Growing up, I never imagined I would end up with somebody like that but we never know where love, compartability will come from. He’s the best husband/ father I can ever imagine. Years later, even the ex-wife that left for greener pastures only to find out that the grass was not so green after all admitted that she did not deserve him.
      Some people marry the ideal spouse and are miserable, I always tell people to follow their heart and trust their instincts because 80% of the time we know what the person will be like before we marry them. We nigerians are too concerned about what people will say or how we’ll be judged to pursue our happiness.
      Funke, you’re a matured lady who had kissed some frogs. Analyse the situation, pray for God’s guidance and overall follow your heart and trust your instincts which God blessed each and everyone with because you alone know your relationship with this guy.
      I wish you all the best and hope things work out if this is your choice.

      Shut up your mouth you stupid fool

      Sometimes Love finds you in the most unpredictable places

      Funke has a heart of Gold and deserves every happiness.

      You found yours without kids, she found hers with kids (and 3 of them) , She is such a loving person and I am sure they kids are happy to have her in their lives.

      Some of you nigerians Talk too fkcing much. Can you for once be happy for someone – ever? and then you wonder why your blessing is blocked. IT IS BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR WHOLE GENERATION ARE WITCHES AND WIZARDS WHO REFUSE TO BE HAPPY FOR SOMEONES HAPPINESS.

      Funke May God continue to prosper you. I am happy you found love again.

      Your statement is ridiculous, and you are obviously not an intelligent person. Making stupid blanket statements. Didn’t it occur to you that most people in their thirties who have been in an unsuccessful marriage are most likely to find someone in the same situation? What part of that says desperation? So what if he has three kids? At least he acknowledges them. Next time think before you speak! Idiot

      See me begging a divorced father of 3 to marry me and e dey make shakara sef!!!
      Abeg I dey find husband and if I see God fearing father of 100 that loves me and is not gay or a ritualist or yahoo boy or a gold digger I go marry am…
      And before you crucify me I have a long list of what I don’t want in a man but children from another woman (note not women) is not one of them.

    Normally, there is a second-hand husband.

    Then there is a second-hand husband who has been used as ‘tokunbo’ on another continent but can still claim fair-usage

    Then there is the second-hand husband who has been used as tokunbo on another continent and the original parts were fake

    Then there is this guy!!

    Anyway, who are we to judge?
    As long as two grown adults are happily engaged in a loving relationship, then let us cheer them on.

    Seems it’s official then! Bet Miz Akindele is still keeping it on the low. Can’t blame her. If he’s good to her, loves & treats her right, heck why not? She deserves all the happiness in the world. She’s a down-to-earth, talented, & very good actress.

    They actually look good together.. and JJC is 39 years sounds mature age wise, just a year difference and they seem to be happy..
    the cons: he has never been married and he has three different baby mamas (the youngest is 10 sha) but still she should continue keeping things private and see where it leads

    maybe she wants british citizenship? her taste in men is atrocious. but then again she’s a 40 year old woman, at least she’s not going for young boys,she’s going for men with experience.

    What matters the most is her happiness. We have no right to dictate who she should be in a relationship with. If it doesn’t work out, so what, it’s her life and we should respect her decision.I see nothing wrong with her dating a single man with three kids, as long as he values and respect her. That’s my opinion.

  19. Tosin

    April 5, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Happy for her because this one may actually be worth her time. Really, I like JJC; one gets the impression that he’s been there done that and still has a good heart.
