Apart from Funke’s youngest sister, Abimbola, who was only invited to London hastily by Funke, without even being told of the impending wedding until she got to London and no other member of the Akindele family was present at the wedding.
A source close to the family revealed that the conspicuous absence of Funke’s principal family members at the wedding could be linked to the fact that the family was not in support of the relationship between Funke and JJC.
Perhaps, this prompted Funke's decision to shut them out of the wedding, since they were never in support of the affair, especially her mother.
The source disclosed further that the most devastating part of the scenario was that her family members also got to know about Funke’s wedding when it buzzed the web, a situation which came to the entire family as a shock and rude embarrassment.
Funke Akindele's first marriage to Lagos business man, Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede hit the rock about three years ago, few months after their wedding.
