Actress breaks silence over her failed marriage

Yoruba actress speaks about her marriage and all the controversy surrounding it.

Nollywood actress Laide Bakare has been caught in a couple of scandals about her marriages recently. She reportedly married her second husband Alhaji Orilowo without legally ending her first marriage to Olumide Okufulire, also she delivered a baby boy for her second husband in October 2014.

Alhaji Atanda Orilowo was said to be on the run from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for committing fraudulent crimes. Laide who is back in Nigeria after safely delivering her third child had an interview with Encomium Magazine on October 18, 2014 and she refused to address her personal life.

"You can’t change who I am. I don’t talk about my marriage. I can’t talk about my love. I just don’t find it convenient discussing my love. It’s nobody’s business. I am in love, good. I am remarried, good. I have a new kid, good, I am who I am, good, I am contented and I am so happy with my life. Thus, anybody who is not happy with my new found joy should go to hell."

The nursing mother says she isn't bothered by all the rumours going on about her, she also went ahead to attribute all the negative talk about her to a certain blackmailer whose identity she withheld.
