The 42-year-old wife and mother of two also attributed the creation of the game to the immense support and advice she has gotten from her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello aka JJC Skillz.

Funke Akindele has sent a stern warning to all her friends not to get too friendly towards her husband and call him except on his birthday.

The movie star made this known during an interview with a popular TV talk show hosted on TVC. Funke Akindele was asked about her views on personal space when it comes to handling friends who might want to get too friendly and start making unsolicited phone calls to a spouse.

“For me, personal space is personal space. Your best friend has to stay in her lane. Your friend can come to your house, your husband can know your best friend, he can say hello but why would she be calling my husband on the phone? Except it’s his birthday,” she said.Says; My friends are not allowed to call my husband unless its his birthday

Obviously, Funke Akindele won’t be welcoming unnecessary phone calls from her friends to her husband, JJC Skillz. We all know how these lovebirds have maintained a very cute but personal relationship since their marriage.
