Funke Akindele, a Nollywood actress, is overjoyed to have been invited to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Class of 2022.
The actor posted the wonderful news on her Instagram page. She was nominated among well-known worldwide performers like Caitriona Balfe, Jessie Buckley, and Reed Birney.
The world’s foremost organization dedicated to movies was established in 1927 and is known as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Academy’s annual Academy Awards, also referred to as “The Oscars,” are well-known around the world.
“Wow!!!! I’m overjoyed! It’s such a BIG DEAL to receive an invitation to join THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES (class of 2022) as an actor. I’m very grateful,” Funke exclaimed on Instagram.
Days prior, JJC Skillz, Funke Akindele’s spouse, had announced the dissolution of their union.
On Thursday morning, JJC disclosed their separation on his Instagram page while also stating that the previous two years had been incredibly challenging for them.
“Dear Family and Friends,” I must inform you that Funke and I have broken up. We did a lot of things together and had two lovely children while it lasted. We have had a very terrible couple of years. Even though I know I did my utmost to make things right, I think they are now past saving. I moved out of the house three months ago on Funke’s urging,” he wrote in part.
The mother of two hasn’t responded to the news of her husband’s crash as of yet, though.
