“To be honest, I lived the better part of my life in the UK, so I didn’t really know who Funke Akindele was. When I met her, I felt I had just met someone who wanted a director for Jenifa’s Diary. That was in 2013. We have been going out for a long time, people just found out in 2016. We were very low-key because we are two popular people; we had to protect our privacy,” he told The Sun.

Telling the paper how their paths crossed, “She wanted someone to direct her TV series. I was about to embark on recording the JJC album then. Her sister introduced us because she knew I was into music and video directing. When I met her, she told me she did a movie sometime ago and would like to turn it into a TV series. We started working together and preparing for the shoot, then one thing led to another. Here we are today, the rest is history.”
