Nigerian Yoruba actress Motilola Adekunle has taken to social to announce her divorce from her airforce husband, Mr Adekunle.

About six years ago, KemifilanNews had it documented the relationship between her and her husband had been shaky as she went about without her wedding band. The investigation revealed that the whole saga started between Motilola and her mother-in-law who felt that the actress is too expensive for her son to marry. Although, she denied she had an intact relationship with her mother-in-law.

According to her, their decision to split was best for both of them as it involved no anger or violence but due to their consensus.

Speaking further, she mentioned the reason she disclosed the information is as a result of the rumours and speculations that will arise if she had not been transparent.

Despite splitting up, she said their duties as parents to their two children are still intact.

Sharing a post, the mother of two wrote:


It feels very odd that I have to share this kind of news with everyone as I am a staunch believer in the marriage institution, but the decision to share is a consequence of my believe in being transparent and not giving room to rumours or unverified speculations.

After ….. years of marriage, we have come to the hard but
pragmatic realisation and conclusion that we are much better apart.

Let me dispel any rumors that might emerge about the split. It’s very simple: It just didn’t work out. There is no anger involved. Difficult? Absolutely. But it is the best decision in the circumstances.

Let me reiterate that we are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their, and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

Thanks for your understanding and I seek your continuing prayers for me in this period.

I would also appreciate if there would be no calls, would respond to messages as soon as I can…pls understand the sensitivity of this situation… God bless you

Motilola Adekunle
