Demola Odulaja, the estranged husband of Farida Abdulkabir, alias Farida Sobowale, has explained why he dumped the Lagos socialite after about two months of their elaborate wedding.
Odulaja said Farida is promiscuous, disclosing that he was having affair with her while she was still married to her former husband.
Speaking in an interview with a Yoruba social commentator, ArewaTopeFamous, on Tuesday via Instagram Live, Odulaja alleged that the break-up was not unconnected to Sobowale’s alleged promiscuity, lies, and covetousness, among others.
Recall that Sobowale, the Chief Executive Officer of House of Phreedah Body Care, trended last week after she attempted to jump into the Lagos lagoon in apparent suicide attempt.
Sobowale had said she could not endure the fallout of her crashed marriage and this prompted her decision to end her life.
However, Odulaja declared that his association with Sobowale extended over a substantial span of 20 years but had become unstable owing to her “unrestrained and promiscuous way of living.”
He also recollected a time when Sobowale engaged in simultaneous intimate relationships with him and multiple other men before they eventually got married.
The London-based entrepreneur further alleged that Farida indiscriminately visited his brother who lived close to them often and even stayed there for hours without justifying her action.
While fielding questions on Sobowale’s allegation and label as a gigolo, Odulaja said, “I am extremely wealthy. I live in a 22-bedroom mansion in Gbagada.
“I am not a gigolo. I come from a wealthy home and have been flying first class long before now, people know me well in London,” he added.
Continuing, he noted, “When I got back to Nigeria from London in 2009, Farida met me in Lagos in 2010. That same year, I took her to China to start an importation business which of course yielded results and was the beginning of her travelling.”
He also maintained that he had been having affairs with Sobowale even when she was married to her ex-husband, Tunde Sobowale, whom she bore her three children for but kept mute on the rumoured N100 million wedding single-handedly financed by her.
