Who Is The Loser? Funke Akindele Or Her ex-husband?

When I was still a little boy,some of the songs I listened to courtesy my dad were songs by King Sunny Ade,Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey,Orlando Owoh(Late) and Alhaji Kollington Ayinla. If you are a staunch lover of these legends,you will remember this line in one of KSA's lyrics..."ara yin le n da loro/2x...emi ko" (You are hurting yourself,not me).

I stand to be corrected but I think that line describes best the break up saga of Funke Akindele and her ex-husband. You will agree with me that the man's intention was to rubbish and stain the talented actress but he eventually got himself dipped in the mud.

You can't believe I can't even remember the man's full name as am typing this piece. I 'sha' know Oloyede is his surname until I remember his full name,I will refer to him as Oloyede. Thanks to Funke for making that name popular when she added it to her original name(Funke Akindele-Oloyede).

The truth is,many people hardly know Mr. Oloyede before he sneaked into Funke's life. He got press attention when he married the popular 'A' list actress. Some people even believed he only used Funke to attract media buzz. Some even believed he 'jazzed' Funke.

We learnt several notable figures such as wife of Lagos State Governor, including Funke's family members objected to the marriage but 'Jenifa' acted like she was under a spell and went ahead with the wedding.

We can therefore conclude that the love charm which was never approved by NAFDAC or SON got expired earlier than expected.

So,in a bid to bring the award winning actress down,Mr. Kehinde Oloyede(I finally remember his first name) announced their break up on facebook. This came as a great shock to fans of Funke and even Funke herself who was in a movie location on that fateful day.

I guessed the man who was believed to be a tout thought the announcement would either dent Funke's image or end her career. Interestingly, Funke Akindele keeps soaring higher. Nigerians and her fans all over the world embraced her and whispered into her ears "we still love you".

One would have thought,Funke would be dropped as Glo Ambassador but her green jersey remained intact. The scandal turned to a sandal she wore and marched the ground with. The whole thing didn't hit her badly. Her friends and fans stood by her. She kept getting scripts and deals. She was recently awarded alongside veteran broadcaster,Ambrose Somide and afro-Juju creator, Sir Shina Peters by Irawo Osere in conjunction with Metronews.

To crown it all, her friends in the industry threw a surprise 36th birthday party for her last saturday. The likes of Tiwa Savage,AY, Olasco films,Kate Henshaw,Uche Jombo,TY Mix,Gbogbo big girl(Eniola Badmus),Bantu,Kaffy and a host of other celebrities were in attendance.

Oluwafunke omo Akindele is such a lucky girl. She didn't loose her groove at all,so there is no point saying,she got her groove back. She remains a beloved of many Nigerians even if she is no longer loved by her ex-omo onile hubby.

We only wish our dear 'Jenifa' will learn from her past and make better choices next time.

Honestly,I don't want to write this long story again on this matter. But let me ask you; who really is the loser?
