The duo dated on and off for about 12 years and got married officially in a secret ceremony in December, 2013.
The actress once wrote a lovely appreciation post to her husband back in June, 2015 on her Instagram page.
"The love I get for you, no be man made o E be Jangilova... Usually when two people are together for a long time things seem to change. It's been said that nothing good last forever, but life with you as crazy as it is sometimes, it teaches me so many lessons" wrote Makinwa, "we go thru problems just like everybody else, (Marriage is not the easiest, don't let nobody lie to you) but when you have someone who is willing, however flawed you both may be, you somehow find a way thru the rough times."
"God bless the day you came into my life, I could write you a song but baby, words cannot express it all. I love how no matter how far we go, we always find ourselves again. I'm not perfect but thank you for loving and supporting me flaws and all. Love me plenty of you Mr A" she further wrote.
However, a huge crack in their marriage appeared months ago when it was discovered that Maje Ayida had impregnated his longtime mistress, Anita Solomon who gave birth to a baby boy.
