For the past one week, the media has been awash with the tales of marriage crash trailing the union of popular Yoruba actress, Mide Funmi Martins and her husband, Afeez ‘Owo’ Abiodun, who is a movie director and comic actor.
The mother of two, who spoke exclusively with NET (read the interview here) on the crisis rocking her marriage also took to Instagram to call out her husband accusing him of dumping her and the kids for 3 months.
Following this, there have been different versions of stories about what led to her husband moving out of the house, with some saying it is due to infidelity on the part of Mide.
Since the rumour of their marriage crash began brewing, Afeez Owo has refused to say anything concerning the allegations. When we reached out to him, he said he’s busy filming and wouldn’t want to discuss the matter over phone.
‘I am busy right now shooting in Abeokuta. I am not going to talk over phone. If you want to hear my own side of the story, It will be nice to see one-on-one. I will be back in Lagos on Tuesday’, he told our correspondent 2 days ago.
Now, it appears that the couple have decided to put their crisis behind them as Mide has taken to Instagram to state that she’s reunited with her husband.
Meanwhile, sources who are close to Mide Martins and her husband have revealed to NET that there are some messy details about the current troubles hitting the 18-year-old marriage of the celebrity couple that are yet to be released to the public.
According to the sources, the crisis rocking the marriage has been on for some months, until it reached its peak few months ago when Afeez Owo left his matrimonial home.
The sources also hinted that if not for a few friends, who reportedly stepped into the situation by prevailing on Afeez Owo not to join issues with his wife in the media, the actress’ estranged husband was prepared to drop some bombshells about what actually led to the troubles in their marriage.
For now, it is not clear whether the popular Yoruba movie producer/director will be coming out in the media to state his own side of the story.
In the interim, we gathered that many elderly practitioners in the Yoruba movie industry have also intervened in the crisis rocking Mide and Afeez’s marriage.
Following Mide’s latest Instagram post hinting that she’s back in her husband’s arms, fans have flooded her timeline with comments.
Below are some of the comments:
