Actor Yomi Fabiyi Shares on Why He Married His British Ex-Wife & Not a Nigerian Woman

Months back, popular Yoruba film actor and producer, Yomi Fabiyi, announced via his social media pages that he was divorcing his British ex-wife Fran, whom he had been with for about four years.

The actor stated among other things that the main reason he was separating from his wife was because they could not agree on where to live together as husband and wife.

In his latest post on Instagram, Yomi spoke about how he met Fran when he was emotionally down, lonely and unhappy because things couldn’t work out between him and his baby mama.

He also talked about how he was rejected by Nigerian women due to his nature and stature.

He wrote;

”I WILL NEVER SAY NIGERIAN WOMEN NOT OK FOR ME TO MARRY.

Marrying Fran 5yrs ago met some criticisms, but truthfully I have never nurse the idea that a Nigerian woman is not good for me in marriage. Jokes apart, they are d best.

Before the particular trip to the UK that linked me with my wife, I was emotionally down, lonely and unhappy because things couldn’t work out between my baby mama and I.

Before Fran, most ladies I wooed then did not hide disdain, they complain about my stature, some say I’m big or ugly, some complain about my nature etc.

Nothing they complained about that can’t be tolerated or corrected. Unintelligent people complain about people’s nature just like Joseph’s elder brothers.

From the moment Fran and I saw eye to eye at Manchester Picaddily Train Station, she began to echo admirable encos. She is 9yrs older. She makes me feel complete, showed readiness to support me, gave me strength, shared my pain with regards to my son METOMI MOYINOLUWA FABIYI.

Fran’s decision to then fly to Nigeria, marry me with “NOTION” that as step mum we will travel to South Africa to sort “access” to my son.

Even when I told her I don’t have POLY or University education, she accepted me. Meanwhile I assumed everybody know I’ve being travelling to d UK, mo tan ra mi (decieve myself). If for papers, it would be MEDIA BLACKOUT but am clean.

My wife and I will always be good friends. Don’t mock me oh, I’m always proud I sent invitation (×2) to an ‘OYINBO’ to visit Nigeria, bearing in mind they were once our colonial masters.

Our agreement was never to live in UK from inception. My career was just gathering shape then and the only lapses.

Marriage between Nigerians is not just about the couple only, it is between families and that part is unique and I value that. It is malicious for anyone to say I don’t like Nigerian girls, I was just unlucky or unfit for.

The actor also responded to a sexual harassment allegation made against him recently. An Instagram user @ennygold1 said Fabiyi had solicited for sex to have her star in a movie 9 years ago.

She wrote:

”This stupid guy, I remember my encounter with him about 9 years ago wen I was so passionate about acting.

I was happy wen I met him as he promised that he would feature me in a movie that very day. I was so excited, I quickly called my people that I wouldn’t be coming home. I dey go location.

Only for him to be telling me that shey I know I cant sleep in a separate room when we get to the location o, at Ikorodu. That we have to sleep together and he will have sex with me before he can feature me at all. He say na normal tin for all actresses o. I was so heart broken.

You know what dis guy now did? As I told him I can’t do it, he just dropped me along the expressway in the middle of the busy road in Ketu. I cried till I arrived home. My mama just dey console me like baby.”

Fabiyi however, refuted the allegation. He wrote;

”More reason I found it laughable when a strange lady claimed I chased her out of my car 9 years ago because of sex, this was when I needed a relationship.

She’d be more beautiful then oh. Her story never add up, DOUBT SEEING HER before, no memory of ever chasing anyone out of my car. The blackmail is either sponsored or she acted alone.”
