Popular Yoruba actress, Bimbo Akinsanya, is now enmeshed in another husband-snatching saga.
NFC learnt that the light-complexioned actress, who hit stardom in the Yoruba movie industry with a film entitled Omo Oloja many years ago, is alleged to be in a sizzling romantic affair with a socialite, Rasak Olowo, otherwise known as Adawa.
It was gathered that she met the businessman and his wife, Mrs. Ebun Olowo, a lace merchant in Oshodi Market, at a movie location in Ikotun, Lagos, earlier in the year.
“The lady is a close friend of the actress. She went to the location with her husband to collect some money that Bimbo was owing her. Unknown to the woman, the man gave his complimentary card to the actress. As they say, one thing led to the other and a romantic affair developed between them. Bimbo then went on a romantic trip with him to Cotonou, Benin Republic, where he also has an auto shop. In fact, they were there for several weeks before his wife was hinted by her housegirl who was in the country on an errand. So, the woman, who was bitter about the development, travelled to Benin without her husband’s knowledge and found them out,” a source said.
NFC gathered that she was, however, unable to catch them in the act.
But the woman, upon confronting her husband, got the shock of her life, as he was said to have confirmed his romantic affair with the actress.
However, when Weekend Showbiz called the beautiful actress, she said, “What do you want me to say? Since you have your story already, go ahead and write whatever you want.”
The lady has several times been involved in husband-snatching saga in the past. It will be recalled that she allegedly dated Bakky Adeoye, a former production manager with Wale Adenuga who launched her into the limelight with his connection in the movie industry.
