I don’t have passion for artistry anymore – JJC Skillz Reveals

Popular singer and actor fondly called Abdulrasheed Bello, aka JJC Skillz, says he does not have a passion for artistry anymore.

In an interview with TheCable Lifestyle, the actor said he has quit his career as a singer.

JJC Skillz said his new song ‘Black’ is “not a comeback song” but a celebratory track for black history month.

He added that he would like to be behind the scene and give a push to artistes in the industry rather than go back on stage.

“I actually released a freestyle song for black history month called black but ultimately when I released this is not a comeback,” he said.

“So I don’t really have a passion for artistry, I am supporting a lot of artistes production-wise for them to have the limelight but for myself, I don’t have the urge to go back on stage.”

JJC Skillz rose to fame in 2011 after the release of ‘We Are Africans’, the song celebrating the black culture.

In 2013, JJC Skillz won the best international artiste at the Nigerian Entertainment Award (NEA).

He created an African super group called the JJC and the 419 Squad. The group also won the Kora All-African Music Award in 2014.

The singer got married to Funke Akindele, the actress cum politician.

The pair tied the knot in London in 2016 and welcomed a set of twin boys in 2018.

But in June 2022, JJC Skillz announced his separation from Akindele, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
