Sometimes in October 2011, when preparations for the wedding ceremony of Abiodun Kuku and Funke Fowler was at its peak, a friend of the couple told www.yemojanewsng.com that the marriage will not last. In fact, the friend predicted five years as the life span of the marriage. From all indications and investigations by us, there are pointers to the fact that the prediction has come to pass.
www.yemojanewsng.com gathered authoritatively that Funke, the daughter of Lagos Inland Revenue Service boss, Babatunde Fowler has walked out of the marriage to Abiodun Kuku, the son of Chief Bayo Kuku (Ogbeni Oja of Ijebuland).
Though, we learnt that both Fowler and Kuku families are trying their best to patch the relationship owing to the publicity it generated when the marriage was contracted in October 2011.
It would be recalled that the wedding ceremonies were held in two continents. The first was the traditional wedding which was held at the Tafawa Balewa Square Lagos on October 22, 2011. The event was the gathering of nouveaux riche and it had the attendance of Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote. The part two of the fairy tale wedding ceremony was on November 19, 2011 at the United Arab Emirate.
What wowed many people was that Babatunde Fowler, a civil servant transported all the guests from Lagos to the United Arab Emirates in chartered flights for the few hours wedding ceremony. It was a sheer display of opulence and wealth. The ceremony was dubbed as one of the most expensive weddings in recent times.
After the Dubai event, the new couple flew to Atlanta, United States of America for their honeymoon.
Our sources revealed that no sooner had the honeymoon ended than the foundation of the marriage began to shake.
The source informed us that ‘Abi’ Kuku as Abiodun is fondly called by friends was not really keen on getting married, but was practically dragged into it.
”He is a spoilt man. Abi is a jolly fellow and we know he is not a guy that is ready to let go of some things single guys do, and that is why he and Funke quarrel on daily basis. Do you also know that he takes these hard substances, and I don’t know any lady that will live with a man like that.” The source stated.
www.yemojanewsng.com was made to understand that the marriage collapsed since 2013, but was kept under wraps in order for the families to try and salvage it.
However, the source said Funke Fowler has moved out of Abiodun Kuku’s house while efforts are being made underground to solve the problem.
