Few days ago, it was reported that the ex-lovers, Fathia and Saidi Balogun, were done with their marriage for good. But Faithia is not done yet, even as Saidi has since moved on and enjoying marital bliss with Funke Tayo Sofowoa, an accountant.
In a recent interview with City People Magazine, the ageless actress admitted although divorced that Saidi is the father of her kids, her friend and mentor, but that doesn’t stop their friendship.
“ I don’t really want to talk about my relationship with my children’s father. It is a thing of the past and I don’t really want to talk about it. Saidi and I are best friends, and it is going to be like that. Fine, he had an accident, and I was there all through, we were together. Let it just be like a natural and normal thing. We are friends and that is just it,” she said.
The light skinned thespian also argued that she is not ready to fully drop the surname ‘Balogun’, because according to her, “Why will I drop the name? I have two beautiful kids, Khalid Balogun nd Aliyah Balogun, so tell me why I am going to drop Balogun,” she asked rhetorically.
When asked her stand on the new wife of her ex-husband, Fathia still maintains that she is still married to Saidi and still wants to share his bed.
“Saidi is a Muslim, yeah. Even on our engagement day, it was said that ‘Mee ni Olorun wi, Saidi can marry 4 wives, 3, 20. Iya le ni mi (I am his first wife). They can come in it, doesn’t matter now. I can still sleep in his house. Why not? If it is my turn, it is my turn. If Saidi is married up to 1-10, won ma pin ojo ni. So, when it is my turn on Friday, no one would argue with me that Friday is not my day. Don’t you get, nobody will argue about that.” She added.
