Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele Bello, has revealed reasons behind keeping her children’s identities to herself and her family.
The actress, who is often in pictures showing the back or side view of her twins’ faces to her fans on social media, has stated why.
In an interview with Jide Okonjo, she said she wants her children to decide whether they want to be in the social world when they are much older.
She stated that her husband and herself are already in the media and entertainment industry and she doesn’t want her children out in the open as well because they are still young and vulnerable.
Funke added that she doesn’t want her twins recognized outside as well so they can live a normal, free life.
She said, “Don’t you see my home? Don’t you see my husband? Don’t you see the back of my children?
“How is that one private? The children’s face is that what you are trying to say? No.
“When they are old enough, they should show their faces if they want to. But for now, I don’t want them to show their faces. I want them to have their lives and enjoy it.
“Their dad and I are already in the public eye. They are children, don’t forget. They are children . They are vulnerable so you have to just keep them away, keep them safe.
“Let them go to school, let them enjoy their lives without “Ah!” that’s Jenifa’s son. That’s JJC’s son. Ah see his leg, see his face” Leave them private!”
The actress welcomed her children, twins, in December 2020, with her husband, Abdulrasheed Bello, also known as JJC Skillz.
