Nollywood actress, Funke Akindele has advised ladies not to rush into marriage due to societal pressures.


The actress made this revelation in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jidenowo.


She narrated how she was able to overcome this terrible period in her life by focusing solely on her work as a distraction.


She said, “I have never addressed this issue but I will do now to encourage ladies that are pressured to get married. Please calm down and take your time because if you rush in, you rush out…that is the lesson learnt….


“You know, I just wanted to get married. I want to do things right, have children and all that. When I went into the (first) marriage, it didn’t work fine. And it ended in a very bad way, in social media, the noise was everywhere. I was actually filming and somebody called me and told me, I wanted to die!


According to her, she merely wanted to settle down and have children because she was under pressure, but regrettably the marriage dissolved after a year.
