Funke Akindele And Kenny Almaroof – What Went Wrong?

Here’s what everyone is talking about right now: Why did Funke Akindele and her hubby of one year allegedly break up and go their separate ways?
Not a single doubt the marriage, which was contracted on Saturday May 26, 2012, months after Nigerian Entertainment Today first spotted the couple at Industry Nite, at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos, has entered seriously troubled waters. But with the couple keeping mum, and having those close to them do same, details are yet to emerge – only speculation and more speculation.
Akindele’s elder sister who’s believed to be her current publicist, has said one thing though: She did not confirm the break up story to Linda Ikeji, as she believes the blogger’s story suggested. Ayo-Ola Muhammed told friends she did not speak with Ms Ikeji.
But with more angles now coming out, including allegations Almaroof, the man who stole Funke’s heart last year, swept her off her feet and landed her in the altar, has become a serial baby daddy, keeping a string of affairs, and even returning to the women he had prior to the celebrity wedding with Funke Akindele, it is only a matter of time before facts emerge. The couple will have to speak before long – especially Funke Akindele – a super successful actress and producer, who has everything going for her, and would not want a nasty separation-divorce to mar her career and tremendous goodwill. She has loads of endorsements to lose, if the separation from Almaroof does not go smoothly.

Just like Mercy Johnson, who had a big pre-wedding scandal on her hands after the wife of the man she was to mary stepped out and tried to stop the wedding, Funke also had disgruntled wives to contend with. There were many fans, friends and colleagues too, who felt she did not need to settle with an already married man; with the attendant drama and chaos. But, as it is in the things of love, just like Mercy, Funke went ahead to tie the knot in what was – along with the July 2012 wedding of Nicole and Naeto Chikwe – unarguably, the most expensive, most glamorous celebrity wedding of 2012.
She was happy beyond limits on her wedding day. And the days to come were full of bliss.
So were did it all go wrong? Or was it a facade all along?
What will this separation mean for her string of endorsements, movie career, and influence on young women all over the world?
And how will she and her reps handle the mess that is sure to follow? Everyone’s watching. But everyone loves Jenifa – so one should be positive it won’t be so bad, it’s ugly – right?
May good friends, and God see the couple through this obviously trying times…
