April 16, 2013 – Yoruba Actress Orisabunmi Not Dating King Sunny Ade – Says Ex-Husband, Jimoh Aliu Aworo
Popular Nollywood Yoruba actress Folake Aremu aka Orisabunmi who currently resides in Newark, NJ is happy to get off a terrible scandal that almost killed her career.
Few months before she retired from acting, Orisabunmi was rumoured to be dating high life musician King Sunny Ade.
Contrary to the rumour making round then, her estranged hubby, actor Jimoh Aliu aka Aworo said nothing of such happened.
In this recent interview, 76-year-old Jimoh Aliu who claims he misses Orisabunmi said;
Don’t you know how long my relationship with KSA has lasted? Was Folake born when Sunny and I met? KSA calls me wherever he has a concert and wants me to attend. Even when he is celebrating, he never hesitates to invite me.
When his mother (Mama Pupa) died in Ondo, all of us were there. That should tell you how close we are. Look at the portrait over there (pointing). That’s a picture of both of us.
As for the rumoured affair with him, there is no iota of truth in that. It’s being spread to cause disaffection and confusion. Orisabunmi and myself met with him (KSA) severally. That was another of the devil’s ploy that I talked about earlier. There is nothing to stretch on that. It’s no issue, so let’s forget it!
Aworo Speaks on Divorce with Orisabunmi
“Although we still speak on phone and have since moved on with our lives, the fact still remains that the first Orisabunmi was not my wife but this Orisabunmi you are talking about was my wife. I so much trained her to that extent and the loss of such person must affect me, there is no doubt about that, but I am okay now.”
The veteran actor was the one who introduced Orisabunmi into acting.
