Feb 3rd, 2015 – Saheed Balogun To Marry New Wife, Actor Says He’ll Not Reunite With Fathia Balogun, Blasts Nigerian Bloggers
The ex-hubby of Nollywood actress Fathia Balogun Williams has debunked rumours that he’s planning to reconcile with his ex-wife.
In a recent chat with Encomium Weekly, the actor said the report is false. He also called out Nigerian bloggers who made up the story to drive traffic to their sites.
See interview excerpts.
Encomium: What’s the truth about a social media report that you and your estranged wife are planning to reconcile?
Saidi: All I know is that bloggers just write whatever they like. That’s their style. I don’t care and that can’t bother me at all. It’s people like you that practice investigative journalism, not because I am with you, that’s why I am saying that. You ask before putting your pen on paper. And that’s the kind of professionalism we need if you want to know the truth. Some bloggers would just post anything on their blogs to gain more traffic thinking they can push people like you aside. But that’s not possible because you’re a professional. I, Saidi Balogun, my vision and mission are different this year. All I am after now, is how I can move my career forward, not one woman or the other. My marital issue is private and I don’t discuss it publicly. I don’t know where they got the information.
Encomium: But a lot of your fans are expecting that you should have remarried, what is causing the delay?
Saidi: They should just let the issue rest. I have said it, I have gotten someone to marry and they should let the issue end there. It’s my private life and should be treated as such.
