How and Why Funke Akindele's Marriage ends after a Year

It first started as a rumour which many didn't
believe. Not even after the estranged hubby
went on Facebook to rudely announce it
himself. Findings have revealed that Funke
Akindele, popularly known as Jenifa went
through hell in the marriage that lasted for a
year and when the centre could no longer hold,
it had to give way. Read this article written by
Biodun Kupoluyi and culled from E247
magazine for the messy details:
It's official! The May 3, 2012 marriage of star
actress, Funke Akindele, to Kehinde Oloyede,
real estate developer and son of the former
Iyaloja of Oshodi, has crashed.
The marriage which suffered many hiccups
shortly before it became known to the public,
continually overwhelmed The Return of Jenifa
star due to shocking and disturbing tales of
extra-marital relationships that have led to
not less than10 love children traced to
Kehinde. The spate at which the estranged
hubby's sexcapades played out nearly turned
the hitherto adored actress to an object of
ridicule and the topic of rile discussion among
professional colleagues and fans.
It worsens with caustic and cynical comments
online. According to close family sources, the
kitchen became too hot shortly after the
marriage, as issues that did not surface prior
to the wedding kept rearing their ugly heads
and left unresolved. Kehinde, showed no
remorse though after much pressure and
damning reports in E24-7 Magazine, he
admitted one of his mistresses, Modinat, and
then three months pregnant for him was
actually carrying his baby. Earlier, the media
was awash with the shocking revelation that his
second wife at home, Fadeke, was equally
pregnant. Fadeke was forced to travel out
during the wedding to Dubai, an indication
that she did not support the union. In a typical
Yoruba setting, the senior wife should receive
the new bride into the family.
Checks revealed Fadeke too was not formally
received by the evicted first wife, Toun. All
these and more drew public odium to the
hitherto much loved The Return of Jenifa
star, especially women who believed she's a
home wrecker. Though her world nearly
crashed, Funke gathered the bits and pieces
of her life, shunned critics, naysayers and had
the wedding with all the trappings of a
celebrity. Like a blind lover, she was rushed
into the marriage.
Even when it was obvious there was a crack in
the marriage, she debunked all the reports: "
'My husband has never been married. I am the
woman he got married to. I was married
properly. A lot of negative comments came
from sadists who want to run their mouths. So
because I am a Youth Ambassador or a
Celebrity, I can't have my life? "'It is my life.
If I do things because people want me to, I
will end up unhappy. I do what I do because I
want to be happy. I would still continue to
teach morals and campaign against HIV/AIDS
and enlighten the youths. It doesn't make me
bad; that is even if it is, because I can tell you
authoritatively that my husband is not married
to anyone else. "'Yes, he has beautiful children,
who are not mine now and we have a cordial
relationship, which dates back to even before
we got married. "'So what if he has kids? Is
that a disease? That is where my heart is! I
had many non-biological children even before I
got married. I take them as my own children,
pay their bills and help them. I have always
loved children. So now that God has given me
these ones, what should I do? "Will people be
happier if I had married someone who didn't
have children, seem so perfect, put on my
make-up and fake smile on the red carpet and
start weeping when I get home? And about my
in-laws, they are very wonderful and
supportive and my parents and siblings as well..
Funke Akindele, observers argued , must really
be in love and with that claim the inquisitive
media kept off her trail but it was only a
matter of time. The secret cannot be kept
away forever. As expected, Funke blinked
first but she could not say it out. She knew it
was over and ready to face it, not by
defending herself but putting her struggles
and triumphs behind her to face her career.
They kept each other at measured distance
and it worsened with the fact that elderly
family members, influential personalities
cannot intervene. Both are fiercely
independent adults. Kehinde had been to
Funke's dad once and hardly call her mum.
Time, they believed will heal all the wounds.
Her mum, just like her siblings have become
such an intricate part of keeping her strong.
The mother has since moved to her Ikeja home
to give her strength. More evident that there
was a crack in the marriage is each time Funke
stepped out on the red carpet, Kehinde never
showed. He was never with her at any public
function. She however found company in her
immediate elder sister, Ayo Ola Mohammed
and shut her doors at some professional
colleagues to avoid gossips. "While the trouble
was brewing silently sources claimed that
Funke gave several breaks and chances. She
would call him, begged him even when she was
right but Kehinde just wanted to have his own
way not minding the consequences or effect of
his actions on her, her career and public
perception. He cared less about her status, in
fact, all those negative media never got to him.
He's fiercely independent. Surprisingly, he
returned to Modinat Dada, who gave him a
baby boy last October while he married Funke
in May. It was a slap on Funke's face. In the
heat of this, she lost her pregnancy though
reliable sources hinted she was glad it
happened as it prepared her for the imminent
exit. The fact that both of them lived
separately also worsened the situation. While
Funke can be traced to her Ikeja home, her
hubby is a 'bed sharer'.
He shuttles between three known women-
Funke, Fadekemi, Modinat, and strangely too,
other harem. Baffling too is the issue of
complex and security. Kehinde, according to
our source could not believe that Funke's
back-to- back endorsement comes so easy. He
thinks those corporate guys who give those
endorsements cannot really take their eyes
off her. Severally, he checked her phone and
queried some names and the relationship she
has with her callers." Observers believe the
fact that the marriage is broken was hurting
enough but the decision of Kehinde to
announce it on Facebook was heartbreaking
and nasty. Not a few have lampooned him for
his action considered to be childish and
immature. His post did not give room for
reconciliation. It went public and viral as soon
as it was posted. His "Facebook divorce", an
observer said, confirmed the marriage has
been through hell and he needed to pour his
broken heart out to the world. At Funke's
home, mum is the word. Members of the family
have resolved to keep mute, fold their arms
and watch how events unfold. It is such an
unhappy ending.
