A trending video of Nollywood actress turned politician Funke Akindele’s nanny covering the faces of the actress’ twin boys in public has stirred reactions.
The actress was recently at the mall with her children, her bodyguard, and their nanny when she stumbled on some TikTokers who were dancing and making a video and decided to join them.
As the mother approached the content creators, her children wanted to follow her, but their nanny quickly stooped them and covered their faces from the camera.
Recall that Funke welcomed the twin boys with her now-estranged husband, JJC Skillz, in 2018 and has since kept the children’s faces out of the public eye.
As a result, as soon as the nanny noticed they were being filmed, she quickly pulled the twins closer and covered their faces.
The act earned her accolades from social media users, who noted that she’s competent.

However, speaking in a recent interview with media personalities, Jide Okonjo Funke revealed why she’s yet to unveil her children’s faces.
According to her, she’s already well known in the media space and it would only be right if she saved the children from all the attention that fame brings.
The mother of two noted that when her children are old enough, they can decide for themselves if they want to show their faces and be in the public eye or not.
“Their dad and I are already in the public eye. They are children, don’t forget. They are children . They are vulnerable so you have to just keep them away, keep them safe. Let them go to school, let them enjoy their lives without “Ah!” that’s Jenifa’s son. That’s JJC’s son. Ah see his leg, see his face” Leave them private!” She said.
