Controversy

Yvonne Jegede and Bimbo Akintola reconcile after crash marriage scandal

Veteran actor Bimbola Akintola, and co-worker, Yvonne Jegede are friends again, a few months after the former’s marriage fracturing.

Kemi Filani News recalls that the wedding of Yvonne Jegede was ruined in 2019, amid stories of her ex-husband actor Abounce engaged to Bimbo Akintola.

Bimbo Akintola would give him titles such as “My property” while A bounce would then refer to Abounce by the name of “By Owner”.

in the interview Yvonne Jegede granted after the marriage ended in disaster, she talked about the lessons learned from her marriage and how a third person (who has been identified as Bimbo Akintola) was able to get between the two.

“….he was listening to others or, if I’m not being too naive, friends, people someone who was constantly listening to his voice and giving him advice on how to behave. The person he was talking to was my old friend and I suppose I wasn’t in the country. They were hanging out and getting together as friends, and that was all. It wasn’t an affair, but the friend held an unshakeable hold on him.

She was cool with me, and I liked her, too. We were friends, more like family buddies as they say. He became very comfortable with her since they were introduced to one another and then he would take her to her house and she would be there to relax and talk.

Yes, I do have my faults and I’m not perfect, just like I have learned from my marriage. It’s not like I’m an angel. I’m not perfect. I’ve made a lot of mistakes that could have easily been ignored or rectified however, here we are. I also have learned from my mistakes and continued to move forward, I have learned from my mistakes and these mistakes will not happen again.”

The actors have been reconciled and moved on as they were seen with each other at the Culturati event, which was held last week in Lagos.
