On Saturday, 9th October 2016, Nollywood actor, Femi Adebayo gave marriage a second shot when he took a new wife after his first marriage crashed seven years ago.
The soft-spoken actor will tie the knot with his US-based partner, a businesswoman Omotayo Maimunat Sanusi.
The actor’s marriage to Kadijat, the mother of his kids, hit the rocks when he was romantically linked with actress, Funke Akindele, an allegation they both denied, with Funke now married to JJC.
Femi and Kadijat were first separated for two years, before she filed for divorce in 2011 at an area court in Ilorin, where the marriage was first celebrated. Their union was legally dissolved afterwards.
Khadijat, now Mrs. Balogun, has since remarried and has a child for her new husband.
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.
Femi and Maimunat will receive parental blessings to be man and wife at a Nikkah ceremony in a secret location in Maryland, Lagos.
“The decision is best for us as I have been on the lane before and my wife has never been. I have to protect her privacy at all cost ,please we pray for the understanding of our friends and my beloved loyal fans, I appreciate you and please your prayers and support is all we need,” Femi said in a statement to journalists.
