Popular actor and Special Assistant to the Governor of Kwara State, Femi Adebayo would be getting married to his heartthrob, Maimunat today, 8 years after the end of his marriage to Khadijat, the mother of his 3 children.
The lovely couple
Popular Yoruba actor, Femi Adebayo, who found widespread recognition after the release of his 2014 hit movie, "Jelili", and had been separated from his first wife and mother of his three childre, Khadijat, for eight years, is a happy married man again.
The revelation came to the fore in the early hours of Saturday when the news of planned hush-hush wedding of Femi, first son of veteran Yoruba actor, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello, broke on social media.
The soft-spoken actor will tie the knot with his US-based partner, a businesswoman is simply known as Maimunat, anytime from now.
According to Premium Times, sources close to the actor, who is the Special Adviser To the Kwara State Governor on Culture and Tourism, say his first marriage failed due to alleged philandering habits.
A renowned Nigerian crossover actress who got married to her musician beau in London in August was fingered as one of the women in the actor’s life at the time. However both parties vehemently denied the allegations.
Reacting to the allegations, Femi said in an interview that Khadijat divorced him because she didn’t support his acting career and he would not be getting married to a second wife but to a ‘brand new wife soon.’
Femi Adebayo’s Nikkah Invitation
Meanwhile, Khadijat, his first wife and mother of his three children, has since remarried. She is now addressed as Mrs. Balogun and has a child with her new husband.
Femi and Maimunat will receive parental blessings to be man and wife at a Nikkah ceremony that will be held on Sunday, October 9, in a secret location in Maryland, Lagos.
