Folorunsho Alakija And Husband Allegedly Part Ways After 40 Years Of Marriage

Nigeria’s wealthiest woman, Folorunsho and her husband, Modupe Alakija, who have been married for almost 40 years, have reportedly separated.

According to a report by The Will, the billionaire businesswoman’s marriage has hit the rocks as she and her husband and father of her four kids aren’t living together in their multimillion-naira matrimonial home in Ikoyi, Lagos.

According to the report, the couple has been having frequent fights, which allegedly led Folorunsho to demand privacy in her home, which left her husband with no choice but to seek accommodation elsewhere in the same neighborhood.

Sources close to the couple further revealed that the couple have been putting up a united front because of their status as their relationship hasn’t been smooth sailing for years now.

Below is how The Will shared the news…

“After over 30 years of marital bliss and just at the twilight of her marriage, former society matriarch turned minister of the gospel, Folorunsho Alakija has suffered a devastating marital crisis. According to very reliable sources close to THEWILL, the mother of four who is also Nigeria’s wealthiest woman, has allegedly separated from her husband, Modupe.

The businessman allegedly, no longer spends cold nights in the arms of his wife on their matrimonial bed in their highbrow Ikoyi, Lagos home. The couple were alleged to have been having frequent squabbles which allegedly necessitated the wealthy woman to demand utmost privacy in her home.

He was forced to seek accommodation elsewhere. He allegedly lives alone within the same Ikoyi neighbourhood. Calls and text messages to him seeking clarification went unanswered.

Sources reveal that it has not all been smooth sailing for the couple these past few years and they have allegedly been forced to put up a united front because of their status in the society.

This latest development is coming barely five months after THEWILL exclusively reported that the former fashion designer and founder of FAMFA Oil Limited, an Oil and gas exploration business has allegedly been battling some health challenges particularly with her eyes. Family and friends tried as much as they could to put a lid on it just as they tried to with her current marital status.

Her health challenge became more pronounced when one of her sons tied the knot early last year and very unlike the Alakijas of old, there was little or no noise about the marriage ceremony.
During the wedding, the media was tactically controlled, photographers were not allowed to take pictures arbitrarily and anyone found doing so was asked to delete them.

The planning of the wedding was on a need-to-know basis and guests who got the invitations were well scrutinized.”
