In an interview with Punch, JJC revealed how he met his wife, Funke Akindele as he shared details of moving to London, his musical career, and more. See the excerpts as shared by Punch below:
As an entertainer, what has marriage changed about you?
It has made me more focused. It has also given me more stability and peace of mind.
You once said that you were wary of any kind of emotional attachment, why did you decide to get married to Funke Akindele?
In life, when you find the right person, nobody needs to tell you to settle down. It is like finding God; you may be a bad boy in the club today, and the next day, you’re in front of the church shouting ‘Halleluyah.’ Nobody can determine when that change will happen, and I’m very happy that it has happened to me.
How did you meet your wife?
She had an idea called Jenifa’s Diary that she wanted to do, and she was looking for a good director and cameraman, so she called me to help her shoot the TV series, and that was how we met.
