Yorubawood recalls that Funsho Adeoti, the first wife of Mercy Aigbe’s husband, Kazim Adeoti reveals that never agreed with her husband to have a second wife in their marriage.
In her words, “I never agreed with him to have a second wife in our marriage. Mercy Aigbe was my close friend who I trusted so much around my family because I liked her.
“When I did a surprise 40th birthday for my husband, I personally invited her and her ex husband back then. She became my husband’s side chick and started sleeping with him when her son was just 5 months. She has caused several problems in my marriage over the years but I am done now. She can have him. I have released him to her and left everything to God”.
Adeoti and Aigbe made their marriage public recently drawing backlash from people who accused the actress of marrying her husband’s friend. But the actress debunked the claim, saying her new husband and ex were never friends.
When the marriage became a public subject, Aigbe’s former husband also reacted on social media with a picture of himself and Mercy Aigbe with the Adeotis, hinting that the two couples knew each other. He captioned the picture: “The truth has finally come out. Thank God”
Mercu Aigbe on the other insist that she didn’t break her new husband’s home.
She said, “They were never family friends as speculated by Funsho and what is been peddled on social media. The picture (in question) was taken in 2013 during Adekaz’s fortieth birthday, and I was still married to Gentry then. I attended the event with my then husband. My husband is a Muslim and he is allowed to have more than one wife. I did not break his marriage to Funsho.”
