Odunlade Adekola and I
I am very blunt and God-fearing. I actually went out on a date with Odunlade Adekola. I will not deny it. But we are no longer dating each other. We are just friends now. In fact, we will remain just friends for the rest of our lives. We are still close. People tend to get the wrong ideas when they notice that a particular guy casts a particular lady in his movies constantly. Odun is a very sentimental person. He believes that I am a good actress. He is well known. Right now, he is number one in the Yoruba movie industry. He believes that somebody
can benefit from his stardom and succeed as well. I think that was what he did for me. God will not come down to help you. He would send you help through people. God used him to lift me up in the industry.
Why we broke up

We broke up for a personal reason. I wanted to move on with my life. Odun was married with two adorable sons and he was not ready to take a second wife. So there was no point in continuing the relationship. I would have married him if he had asked me. I know my father would not have been pleased with that if he was still alive. But marriage is about understanding and happiness. If I find a man that understands and respects me, loves and cares for me, what else do I need? Despite the fact that we are no longer lovers, we still communicate to each other. It was rumoured I fought with Flakky Ididowu over Odun. It is not true. Such a thing didn’t happen. I have seen Flakky just once this year. I don’t go to parties. How could I have fought with Flakky during a party? People think I am proud and I hardly talk to my colleagues. But that is not the case. I am only reserved. I always keep to myself in order to avoid gossip. I was hurt when my relationship with Odunlade broke up, but life goes on. The truth is that we didn’t even break up like that. We just came to a mutual understanding. A friend of mine actually said I was the one who didn’t want to marry Odun. I asked her why she said so. She said a lady should know how to hook a man. But I am not that kind of person. I knew he was married before we started dating. But some people are destined to get married to two wives, even if the first wife agrees or not. I shouldn’t be desperate to hook a man. I don’t have any regret dating him. I also know he is happy dating me.

My new lover

I am currently dating Jesus Christ, who will eventually find another man for me at a more convenient time. I am happy with Him. He doesn’t make my head ache with pain. I don’t believe that dating Odun would affect any future relationship with another man. Any man that wants to date me should know that I have a past. I am not so ugly for anybody to think that I would have been without a boyfriend all my life. I have moved on with my life and I know I would still get another guy. If the guy I meet is married again, I would know I was destined to be a second wife. I don’t know why people are sentimental about actors dating actresses. Bankers date each other. It wasn’t as if I dated a physically-challenged person. Even if he were, I still liked him a lot. Most of my colleagues are getting married. I am happy for them. But I also pray the marriages work out. I feel pained when a colleague’s marriage breaks up. It makes me remember what my father said about this profession before he passed on.

The London affair

I learnt they said I was stranded in London. But that is a fat lie. I was never stranded in London. Even before the story broke, I was already in Nigeria.

  1. Idiot oniranu you want to be a second wife better change your idea of being a second wife young lady it is not a place to don't want to put give birth in that environment. you are too young for that, Polygamous home is war zone, find your own man leave someone husband alone.

  2. taiwo or whatever your name is you should know some gist are not for public consumption because people will come so hard on you, haba,the tone of what you wrote so sound like somebody that sees nothing wrong with what she did " dating a married and known man for that matter" somebody that is suppose to be a ROLE MODEL, GLO AMBASSADOR" common on........
    you are now saying u broke up for personal reasons, and what is that silly reason" HE STILL LOVES HIS WIFE AND SONS" you didnt know that before abi.....mschewwwwwwwwwww
    u dated a married man who told you he still loves his wife and two sons, and you are saying it for all to hear ,how do u expect the wife to take it?most of these so called "NOLLYWOOD PEOPLE" are not worthy to be called role models.
    you are now saying you are still searching ?saddish and the man in question Odunlade isnt he suppose to be " GLO ambassador" what sort of person is he potraying himself to be ?anyway is their cup of tea both of them

    " I feel pained when a colleague’s marriage breaks up. It makes me remember what my father said about this profession before he passed on"; SO WHY DO YOU WANT TO BREAK UP ANOTHER MAN;S HOME?HAPPY HOME, DID HE COMPLAIN THAT HIS WIFE IS NOT MAKING HIM HAPPY OR WHAT?, I AM SO PAINED WITH WHAT YOU WROTE .....MTCHEWWWWWWWW

  3. GLO needs to know the type of yeye people they use as ambassador, haba, ODUNLADE IS A BAD EXAMPLE OF A GLO AMBASSADOR,

  4. I like you becos you are real, just keep it up and by the grace of Almighty God your own hubby will come to you to marry you but please my dear sister stop thinking of marry a married man it's a big war that will never finish

  5. Na wa. She even has the effontery to say this in public. How do you want his wife to feel? You are heartless. This world is so wicked!

  6. Leave the poor girl alone. She has change her mind so let it be. We tend to be more holier than others, most of the judges on this medium, do worst things than this. Taiwo, you are pretty and would find a lovely and caring husband...... all the best!

    1. Don't mind them God will give u ur own heart desire, did you people think is easy to get a man outside

  7. Foolish ugly girl, so shameless, dirty whore, prostitute..u even lack self esteem...May God not grant u d heart sesire to break someone home IJN...Odun, u big for nothing fool..tall for nothing, bi o se ga si lo gor si(d taller u r,d height of stupidity u have) dissappointed in u..Glo needs to watch the kind of people they make an ambassador..I feel bad for ur wife cos she doesn't deserve all this..Osu eni lo ma ti owo eniyan bo sad for u cos this girl is so ugly and can't see what u saw in dat thing but the breast..see how she beliitled ur life in sad sha..Maybe u will wise up now cos I hope u have a sense of thinking in u...God help all d married men that cheat...May u not ever contact AIDS but if u do, I don't feel sorry for u..I feel soory for that innocent woman dat u infect with ur stupidity..

  8. The problem i even have with this so called girl is beyound what you guys are talking about. She holds a sensitive post in her church which makes many young girls look up to her. with this rubbish that is being dished out of her mouth , how will she mentor those poor girl. A church worker, drama director, once in a choir selling her self so cheap in public. May the lord grant you your heart desire if breaking a home is what you aspire to achieve in life so that some men can break your daughters home and women your son's home. rubbish. hope your pastor is reading this bushit so that he can know where you better thing with your life,

  9. Taiwo, u a just rubbishin urself, i can c reasn y odun didnt take care of his wife, u did nt allow him to face his home. U better go to his wife n plead for forgiveness cos the woman is suffering alot.pls do dis.

  10. ow willl u feel if sum stupid idiotic girl like u is dating ur husband like u are dating oda pple's husband! u r shameless! n u Odun, am highly disappointed in u!

  11. Taiwo, am so pained becos u don't know the gravity of what u have just done. u almost destroy another woman's home with your immoral relationship with another woman's husband. I pray you don't experience your husband cheating on u when u eventually get married. Continue asking Lord Jesus for forgiveness of sin. Repent sincerely and let Jesus take over your life. Don't even go near a married man again in your life cos every unrighteousness is a sin.
    Jesus said He hasn't come to condemn but He has come that all might be save. So, I implore you to go to God in prayer for forgiveness of sin cos I cannt sense remorsefulness in your words. Jesus loves you.
