Saheed Balogun Exposes Faithia's Top Secret

Two years ago,I was in Saheed Balogun's office at Allen-Ikeja for a business deal. His name featured twice in a magazine he was reading and was not pleased with what was written about him. One of his close associates who was present, put a call through to the entertainment editor of the magazine and demanded for an explanation. I remembered vividly that 'Boda' Saheed said he's not ready to give the reporter an audience because he knew that's what he wants. He decided he would rather keep mute.

Nowadays,'Boda' Saheed has resolved to be replying his critics and rumour peddlers by himself. He has chosen not to use a media aide nor a media house to disclaim or clarify any issue rumoured about him.

Below is a statement he issued to clarify another misrepresentation of fact about his marriage with his ex wife and actress,Faithia Balogun.

Read his statement below;

Yesterday I was accused of lying to the press on a recent rumor that has been circulating. I separated from my ex-wife Fathia Balogun in 2006, over 7 years ago. Since we were LEGALLY MARRIED IN COURT, we had to LEGALLY DIVORCE IN COURT to finalize the issue. The public is welcome to go to the Lagos High Court to verify these records. This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY NAME! I AM NOT ASKING OR FORCING FATHIA TO STOP USING THE NAME BALOGUN, as it is one of the most common Yoruba names.

Furthermore, to set the record straight, Fathia and I had TWO children together NOT THREE. Fathia's first child is from a different husband that she later divorced before we were married.
I never lied to anyone. Journalists presented me with a rumor that had no basis in fact, so I simply stated that I DO NOT WANT MY PRIVATE LIFE MADE PUBLIC. IT IS MY PRIVACY AND CONCERNS NOBODY. I decided to stay quiet as the two parties involved in this issue are over 40 years old, and I think we are old enough to handle this issue MATURELY instead of turning our private matters into a public gossip debate.
I hope this issue is now clarified for the public, as I SAIDI BALOGUN am divulging the true facts myself instead of using a MISINFORMED publicist to do so for me. There are so many positive aspects of Nigeria's entertainment industry, we would rather focus on negative meaningless noise instead of these positive components.


PLEASE GIVE ME THE RESPECT OF KEEPING MY PERSONAL LIFE PRIVATE AND OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE. I AM FOCUSING ON MY WORK. THANK YOU!
