Rachel Bakam has come out to prove that her affair with  former footballer, John Fashanu is more than the eyes can see. Despite being hit with negative perception about this affair, Rachel is not letting it get to her.

She is gradually building her relationship with John to be an enviable one. She also said that most of the things we hear about John is not true after-all. However, we should not expect marriage too soon.

She said “We get along very well. Our friendship gets better and stronger with time. We are both Virgos so we understand each other very well. Yes there are ups and downs but we are both communicators, so we work through every situation and grow. Most of the things painted about John Fashanu are really not the reality. It is the same as in my case. In the world of showbiz, some will say good things about you and others the contrary. You just need to keep your values up and do your best.”

Rachel said about getting married, “I am not keen on re-marriage yet. The truth is, marriage is not something to rush into. Experience has taught me that you have to weigh various components before coming to the point where you accept to marry someone. I believe in taking things step by step, get to know each other better first, then taking the step further when the time is right. My son getting along very well with John. John is very good with kids. I see the relationship he has with his children, very commendable.”

Her relationship with Abigail Igwe and her daughter, Adaeze Yobo is very cordial “And I appreciate that because I mean no disrespect to anyone. I just dey my lane dey play my part…dey live my life. I honestly don’t set out to hurt anyone purposefully. I do the best I can to be respectful. I am work in progress.”
