Funke Akindele and husband embark on new project

Nigerian superstar actress Funke Akindele-Bello has launched her music label called Scene One records as well as signed some artistes as part of plans to stretch her entertainment empire.

She revealed this at her house-opening party on January 2, 2017.

The actress who got married to music producer Abdulrasheed Bello in August 2016 perhaps feels it is a good business idea to own a label seeing as music has picked up in the local industry at the moment.

She definitely has an edge as her husband has been in the music industry for years and as a result is armed with the requisite knowledge and experience.

He is an actor, singer, song writer as well as a music and video producer.

The actress said about the new project:

“When I met JJC, I loved his talent so much, so, I told him why don’t we have a record label. I don’t know anything about music. My husband is a good producer and singer.

“We went out to look for fresh talent and here we are today.”

They appear to have started on a good note however.

Several new artistes have been signed to their label including Martins Feelz, Sonorous, Mo’Eazy, Pearl and Ruby.

Mo’Eazy is also an actor on the actresses well-received sitcom Jenifa’s Diaries. He used to be signed on to Darey Art Alade’s record label, Soul Muzik.

Another of her artistes, Pearl, was once a contestant of MTN Project fame music talent show and she also emerged as the first runner up.

Abdulrasheed ‘Jjc Skillz’ Bello has revealed that their newly signed artistes are also the stars of their new TV show called Industreet.

He said:

“They are also stars of the new TV show, Industreet. This is our baby, our project so please support.”

Funke Akindele-Bello has been blazing trails in recent times after her large success especially from the Jenifa franchise.

Though she has been hit by several scandals, she obviously does not let this get to her.

Hopefully they find some success in this new endeavor as a team.
