Drawing from her own personal experience of a failed marriage, Funke Akindele disclosed:

“You know, I just wanted to get married. I wanted to do things right, have children, and all that. But when I went into my first marriage, it didn’t work out well. It ended badly, and the whole world was talking about it on social media. I received a call about it while I was filming, and it was devastating. I felt like I wanted to give up.”

Despite facing challenging times and losing some valuable opportunities, Funke did not allow the situation to break her spirit.
