allegedly refused to play second fiddle to Ladi. She was not submissive
and couldn’t fulfill the role of dutiful wife, friend, lover and
confidant to her husband, according to Ladi’s apologists.
other hand, Banke’s friends argued that her mother-in-law (Ladi’s
mother), had too much influence on him. They claimed her influence on
her son contributed in no small measure to the short-lived marriage.
contrary to belief that the marriage recently hit an iceberg, the
couple allegedly separated from each other a long while ago but they
succeeded in keeping it under wraps to avoid the noise and scandal that
could result from undue media exposure.
While no one is sure if
they would ever reconcile and remarry, it is an open secret that the
couple are happy without each other. Ladi, for instance, is having the
time of his life. He allegedly drinks more and hangs out more now.
is however, astonishing to note that while some of Banke’s friends are
up in arms in defense of their friends, many of them are jostling to
replace Banke in her estranged husband’s house. Each of them desperately
seeks to become the new Mrs. Balogun.
