Funke Akindele-Bello is without a doubt and without a doubt one of the most well-known and successful Nigerian actresses working today. Funke is undeniably one of the most hardworking and successful celebrities in today’s world, as evidenced by the success of hit series such as Jenifa’s Diary, My Siblings and I, Aiyetoro Town, and blockbuster movies such as the record-breaking Omo Ghetto: The Saga, all of which are produced by her production company, Scene one Productions.
Despite the fact that Funke has a strong online presence and has done an excellent job of releasing personal content and behind-the-scenes footage of her life, people are still eager to see one thing that they have yet to see – the faces of her children.
Despite the fact that it is widely known that Funke is the mother of twins, she has made it a point never to post pictures of her children on social media. Funke revealed why this is the case in her most recent interview with TVC. Here’s what she had to say.

Upon being questioned about why she keeps her children’s faces hidden online, Funke reacted by stating that she does so for the following reasons:
I keep my family private? Ah ah, you see my house na. Don’t you see my home? Don’t you know my husband? Don’t you see the back of my children? How is that one private? Ah ah. It’s not private oh, you see everything.
Okay, the children’s face, is that what you’re trying to say? No. When they’re old enough, they should show their face. If they want to, they should show their face. But for now, I don’t want them to show their face. I want them to have their life, enjoy it. Their dad and I are already in the public eye. They’re children don’t forget. They are children. They’re vulnerable so you have to just keep them away, keep them safe. Let them go to school, let them enjoy their life without “Ah! That’s Jenifa’s son. That’s JJC’s son. Ah see his leg, see his face.” Leave them private!
Funke was also asked to provide three things about herself that her followers may not be aware of. She expressed herself as follows:
Three things my fan’s don’t know about me? I don’t like to go out. I love my space. I love to work so if I’m not working, I’m sleeping, I’m watching TV series, I’m playing with my children, chit-chatting with the family. I’m not really an outgoing kind of person but once in a while I try to go out.
Second thing: I don’t like to eat meat. I like to eat the bone. If you give me goat meat or chicken, it’s too fleshy. I just take small of the flesh.
Then the third one? Ha. I think they know everything oh!
We do, in fact, know a great deal about her, and her decision to keep her children’s faces off social media is very understandable, given that someone can pretend to be someone else and mistreat the children merely because of their parents’ identities. In my opinion, she made the right decision in making this decision.
Are you in agreement with her choice? Do you think it’s a good thing that Funke hasn’t revealed the identities of her children on social media? Make sure to leave a comment on my Jide Okonjo Facebook post to let me know what you think.
