'I got Fathia Balogun in trouble with her ex-husband' actor reveals

According to him, she's one of his favourite screen wives whom he got into trouble with ex husband, Saidi Balogun while on set of the movie 'Elebute'.

Femi Branch & Fathia Balogun

The 45-year-old actor took to Instagram few days ago to reflect on some of the memorable moments in his 25 years acting career, declaring that Fathia is an actress he’s always looking forward to working with all the time.

He wrote, "LET ME TALK ABOUT” – (FAITHIA BALOGUN) – Faithia or ‘Igwa’ as she is also called was the first actress to play my wife in a Yoruba movie, that was in the movie ELEBUTE by Oga Bello. We connected instantly on the Ikorodu set and I believe I got her into trouble with her former husband Saidi then when I said I wanted to try the famous Ikorodu barbecued fish and she, Funso Adeolu and the late Diallogue Director, Alhaji Lateef I think, offered to take me to one of the popular fish spots in town. I think Saidi somehow found out she had left set with some men and came after her. It was not funny I swear but we became friends since then. Despite the obvious distraction from her domestic life then, she displayed such professionalism that I found myself wondering how she pulled dat off (she had enough practice I guess) We have done countless jobs since then and bn married on more occasions that I can recall. I dare say @faithiawilliamsbalogun is one of my favorite screen wives and no doubt someone I look forward to working with all the time. All hail Igwaa!!! #FemiBranch25YearsActing."

Branch is popular for 'Domino', Desperate Housewives Africa', 'Out of luck,' 'A Place in the Stars', 'Marriage of Anansewa, 'Itakun'among others.
