“We are just colleagues “

Contrary to social media reports,famous actress cum film maker,Funke Akindele,better addressed as Jenifa,has denied confirming romance with music act,Rasheed Bello,popularly known as JJC. She added that they’re only colleagues.

Speaking with Encomium Weekly via her spokesperson,Mr Biodun Kupoluyi,on Friday,April 15,2016,the Jenifa actress described the report as mere fabrication and a figment of people’s imagination.

“That’s not true. They’re just professional colleagues. And JJC has made a lot of input into what Funke Akindele is doing in terms of her career. It is not impossible for people to insinuate when they see two people that are close. But the truth is that they’re colleagues”

Meanwhile,social media has been agog in the last few days with the story of the A-list actress confirming her romance with JJC who reportedly already has three children-18,15 and 10 out of wedlock,and from three different women.

This speculation was,however, fueled when the talented thespian reportedly updated her snap chat and shared a picture of herself and JJC cuddled up in bed with the headline,’Oooh back to bed with my boo”.

Reportedly,she also shared a video of herself and JJC on the same account saying,”Taking breakfast with my boo.”

Meanwhile,Akindele was once married to Kehinde Almoroof Oleyede(Kendoo).The marriage crashed irreparably in 2013,barely a year after it was consummated.

Since then,not much has been reported about the Ikorodu,Lagos born theatre practitioner’s love life, not until recently when her closeness and working relationship with her alleged new lover,JJC became suggestive of clandestine move.

But when Encomium Weekly contacted Jenifa’s media man,Kupoluyi,he denied it all.
