FCMB’s former Managing Director, Ladi Balogun’s estranged wife; Banke Balogun’s friends are pointing accusing fingers in the direction of Olori Abimbola Adetutu Balogun as the unseen hand that pulled the strings that crumbled Banke’s marriage to Ladi Balogun.
Banke’s friends maintained that her mother-in-law, Olori Abimbola Balogun had too much influence on Ladi. They claimed her influence on her son contributed in no small measure to the short-lived marriage.
News of the separation between Balogun and Banke broke out some days ago, although the unfortunate breakup was said to have happened much earlier but they succeeded in keeping it under wraps to avoid the noise and scandal that could result from undue media exposure.
Although Ladi’s friends are claiming that the marriage crashed due to irreconcilable differences and that Banke allegedly refused to play second fiddle to Ladi. They accused her of not insubordination and failure to fulfil the role of a dutiful wife, friend, lover and confidant to her husband, Ladi.
The marriage between the duo has suffered several hiccups in the past based on allegations of infidelity against Ladi Balogun whose alleged penchant for sleeping with married women was said to have led to several marriages hitting the rocks.
The former FCMB’s was alleged to be romantically responsible for the broken marriages of Nollywood star actress, Uche Iwuji to Juwon Lawal and that of Lagos socialite and fashionista, Uju Murphy to Murphy Uzohe.
