Odunlade Adekola and I

I am very blunt and God-fearing. I actually went out on a date with
Odunlade Adekola. I will not deny it. But we are no longer dating each
other. We are just friends now. In fact, we will remain just friends for
the rest of our lives. We are still close. People tend to get the wrong
ideas when they notice that a particular guy casts a particular lady in
his movies constantly. Odun is a very sentimental person. He believes
that I am a good actress. He is well known. Right now, he is number one
in the Yoruba movie industry. He believes that somebody

can benefit from
his stardom and succeed as well. I think that was what he did for me.
God will not come down to help you. He would send you help through
people. God used him to lift me up in the industry.

Why we broke up
We broke up for a personal reason. I wanted to move on with my life.
Odun was married with two adorable sons and he was not ready to take a
second wife. So there was no point in continuing the relationship. I
would have married him if he had asked me. I know my father would not
have been pleased with that if he was still alive. But marriage is about
understanding and happiness. If I find a man that understands and
respects me, loves and cares for me, what else do I need? Despite the
fact that we are no longer lovers, we still communicate to each other.
It was rumoured I fought with Flakky Ididowu over Odun. It is not true.
Such a thing didn’t happen. I have seen Flakky just once this year. I
don’t go to parties. How could I have fought with Flakky during a party?
People think I am proud and I hardly talk to my colleagues. But that is
not the case. I am only reserved. I always keep to myself in order to
avoid gossip. I was hurt when my relationship with Odunlade broke up,
but life goes on. The truth is that we didn’t even break up like that.
We just came to a mutual understanding. A friend of mine actually said I
was the one who didn’t want to marry Odun. I asked her why she said so.
She said a lady should know how to hook a man. But I am not that kind
of person. I knew he was married before we started dating. But some
people are destined to get married to two wives, even if the first wife
agrees or not. I shouldn’t be desperate to hook a man. I don’t have any
regret dating him. I also know he is happy dating me.
My new lover
I am currently dating Jesus Christ, who will eventually find another
man for me at a more convenient time. I am happy with Him. He doesn’t
make my head ache with pain. I don’t believe that dating Odun would
affect any future relationship with another man. Any man that wants to
date me should know that I have a past. I am not so ugly for anybody to
think that I would have been without a boyfriend all my life. I have
moved on with my life and I know I would still get another guy. If the
guy I meet is married again, I would know I was destined to be a second
wife. I don’t know why people are sentimental about actors dating
actresses. Bankers date each other. It wasn’t as if I dated a
physically-challenged person. Even if he were, I still liked him a lot.
Most of my colleagues are getting married. I am happy for them. But I
also pray the marriages work out. I feel pained when a colleague’s
marriage breaks up. It makes me remember what my father said about this
profession before he passed on.
The London affair

I learnt they said I was stranded in London. But that is a fat lie. I
was never stranded in London. Even before the story broke, I was
already in Nigeria.

    taiwo or whatever your name is you should know some gist are not for public consumption because people will come so hard on you, haba,the tone of what you wrote so sound like somebody that sees nothing wrong with what she did " dating a married and known man for that matter" somebody that is suppose to be a ROLE MODEL, GLO AMBASSADOR" common on……..
    you are now saying u broke up for personal reasons, and what is that silly reason" HE STILL LOVES HIS WIFE AND SONS" you didnt know that before abi…..mschewwwwwwwwwww
    u dated a married man who told you he still loves his wife and two sons, and you are saying it for all to hear ,how do u expect the wife to take it?most of these so called "NOLLYWOOD PEOPLE" are not worthy to be called role models.
    you are now saying you are still searching ?saddish and the man in question Odunlade isnt he suppose to be " GLO ambassador" what sort of person is he potraying himself to be ?anyway is their cup of tea both of them

    " I feel pained when a colleague’s marriage breaks up. It makes me remember what my father said about this profession before he passed on"; SO WHY DO YOU WANT TO BREAK UP ANOTHER MAN;S HOME?HAPPY HOME, DID HE COMPLAIN THAT HIS WIFE IS NOT MAKING HIM HAPPY OR WHAT?, I AM SO PAINED WITH WHAT YOU WROTE …..MTCHEWWWWWWWW

    Na wa. She even has the effontery to say this in public. How do you want his wife to feel? You are heartless. This world is so wicked!

    Leave the poor girl alone. She has change her mind so let it be. We tend to be more holier than others, most of the judges on this medium, do worst things than this. Taiwo, you are pretty and would find a lovely and caring husband…… all the best!

    The problem i even have with this so called girl is beyound what you guys are talking about. She holds a sensitive post in her church which makes many young girls look up to her. with this rubbish that is being dished out of her mouth , how will she mentor those poor girl. A church worker, drama director, once in a choir selling her self so cheap in public. May the lord grant you your heart desire if breaking a home is what you aspire to achieve in life so that some men can break your daughters home and women your son's home. rubbish. hope your pastor is reading this bushit so that he can know where you belong.do better thing with your life,

    Taiwo, am so pained becos u don't know the gravity of what u have just done. u almost destroy another woman's home with your immoral relationship with another woman's husband. I pray you don't experience your husband cheating on u when u eventually get married. Continue asking Lord Jesus for forgiveness of sin. Repent sincerely and let Jesus take over your life. Don't even go near a married man again in your life cos every unrighteousness is a sin.
    Jesus said He hasn't come to condemn but He has come that all might be save. So, I implore you to go to God in prayer for forgiveness of sin cos I cannt sense remorsefulness in your words. Jesus loves you.
