Few weeks ago, the news of how multi-talented singer, JJC Skillz popped a marriage proposal question to comic award winning actress, Funke Akindele went viral.
In a recent interview with The Punch Newspaper, the actress popularly known as known as Jenifa reacted to the engagement news.
According to her, she still wants to keep everything private.
” I really don’t like discussing my private life anymore because it is better to keep that part of your life secret. A lot of people are watching and sometimes you read a lot of negative comments about you which could make you want to derail, so it is better to keep matters of the heart close to the heart. I am the one in it and I know what is good for me. I am sorry; I don’t want to talk about anything that has to do with my private life,” she said.
She also expressed how she feels reading negative comments of herself on social media pages.
?”Sometimes, I check some comments on my Instagram page, greet some fans and reply others. I appreciate some people and follow them back and this makes them feel loved. You can imagine if Beyonce answers me on Instagram, I am not going to sleep that day.??
Someone was complaining about how a Nigerian celebrity was wearing a wide smile on her face when she took a picture with Ciara. I said that if I had the opportunity to meet Ciara, I would be smiling like a little girl. The way Ciara took pictures with little children made me cry at home as I watched it. I called Darey and I began praying for him because he brought a beautiful soul to Nigeria. That little gesture from Ciara would change lives and I have learnt from it.
Everything is not about money. You could go to some rural areas just to put a smile on the faces of these kids.?”
