Funke Akindele-Bello, a popular comic actress, said her friends are not allowed to call her husband except on his birthday or when they can’t reach her on the phone.
Akindele-Bello, married to Abdul Rasheed Bello, a.k.a JJC Skillz, said this on Your View, a program broadcast on Television Continental in Lagos, a video that went viral on Thursday.
While talking to four of the show’s co-hosts on personal space, the actress said she’d be angry if any of her close friends called her husband on the phone or brought him food in her absence.
She said, “Yes, it’s cool for your friend to come to your house. Your husband will know your best friend ; he will be able to say hello. But why are you calling my husband on phone? What happened? What your reason for calling my husband?
“Why would you call him, except it’s his birthday and you want to wish him a happy birthday? Okay, maybe you tried to talk to me and you could reach me ; yes, you could call him. But why calling him to say hello, why?
“Why should you bring my husband food? You’re all right? Why would you like to come to him and say hello? Why? You are my friend and you are not his friend. His female friends can visit our home. That’s their business..
“But (if) you’re a friend of mine, stay in your house. I’m not around. I’m in London. So, you want to greet or visit my husband? You’re not Okay, I’m sorry.”
