An official statement released this evening by Akindele’s publicist, Ayo Ola- Muhammed, Principal Consultant of NEECEE Entertainment, confirmed the speculation concerning the state of her marriage.
“On behalf of our client, star actress, Funke Akindele, we want to formally inform you that after due consultation and consideration, she has now separated from Mr. Kehinde Oloyede as his wife,” Ola-Muhammed’s two-paragraph statement sent via a Blackberry Messenger read.
The publicist who is also Akindele’s immediate elder sister added: “She (Funke) hereby urges her fans and all concerned to pray and wish her the best as she moves on in her career.
“Kindly note that this is the first and only official statement from Funke Akindele on the matter and will be glad if her wish is respected. Thank you.”
On Monday 15 July, the news filtered out that Funke’s husband, Oloyede-Almaroof, allegedly announced their separation via a post on his Facebook page.
“It’s with heavy heart that I am announcing the separation of me and my wife, Mrs Olufunke Akindele. We’ve both agreed to go our separate ways coz of irreconcilable differences. We are still best of friends and we would forever remain good friends,” the purported message reads.
He was said to have added minutes later: “Am doing just fine and getting along without you. Don’t need you anymore in my life. You are the greatest mistake I have made in recent time…Kehinde Oloyede.”
