Foluke Daramola, a popular Nollywood actress, has reacted to rumors that her marriage to activist and businessman Olukayode Salako had ended.
Recently, reports of the marriage’s dissolution entered the internet, alleging that the pair had divorced due to irreconcilable disagreements.
Daramola debunked the claim in an interview with Saturday Beats, saying that it’s unfortunate that society only seeks negative news about celebrity weddings.
In answer to a query regarding her reaction to unfavorable rumors about her marriage, the actress stated:
I feel so terrible and frustrated when in a society, the only thing we ever want to read about and celebrate is scandal and marriage break-up. I don’t know why some people are just devilish and may be depressed to the extent they feel that there’s a need for them to just sit somewhere and write rubbish at the detriment of someone who has been building her name for a long time.
They want to dent my image without thinking of the repercussion of their actions. I think that we’re in a very terrible society where we only celebrate negativity and scandals. I don’t know why some disgruntled elements will just feel a need to want to continue to rubbish and drag my marriage in the mud. It is so preposterous and annoying.
Meanwhile, her husband responded to the marriage crash rumors earlier this week by confirming that he and his wife still sleep in the same bed.
On Monday, the politician posted on his Facebook page that “merchants of beer parlor and pepper soup joint journalism continue to write their rubbish about us” since he married his wife.
He said, “Foluke Daramola Salako and I still share the same bedroom. In fact, we woke up on that same bed this morning. Let those silly merchants of beer parlor and pepper soup joint journalism continue to write their rubbish about us. They have been doing it since we got married.”
