Comedian and actor, Stanley Chibunna, aka Funny Bone have opened up about how he met his wife.


Funny Bone and his beautiful wife got married in a very colourful ceremony in Anambra and Lagos respectively.


In a recent interview, Funny Bone sheds more light on how he met his better half and why it took him this long to tie the knots.


“First, I got married at the time I did because that was when I was ready.


Second, that was when I found someone who understands me. Marriage takes a lot, and it is not for kids. I met my wife through a mutual friend who introduced us. We (me and my wife) got talking and I realised that we shared similar values. We both have the fear of God, and we are nice to people. We got along well and today, we are married. When one is ready to get married, one will know,” he told The Punch.

Speaking are some of his notable achievements so far, the Funny Bone said, “I do not see awards as a yardstick to judge someone’s success in a particular endeavour. I know some people that have worked hard but have not won any awards (yet).

That does not mean they are not doing so well.


However, in 2020, I won the Best Actor in a Comedy Film (Smash) at Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards. In 2007, I won Best New Comedian in the Nigeria category of the Diamond Awards for Comedy.


So far, I have been staying true to my style and doing my thing to the best of my knowledge.”


Funny Bone also spoke of the challenges he had faced in his rise to fame, “It had to do with getting people to accept me for who I am because I grew up in the northern part of the country— Plateau State. It was a challenge for me. Relocating to Lagos from Jos was not easy. My desire to stamp my feet in Lagos and let people know that I am here to stay was not easy. It took a lot of hard work and consistency. That brought me the acceptance and value I have in the industry today.”
