For those who thought Fathia Balogun was the first wife of Saidi Balogun, then read this.
Sherifat Balogun is Saidi Balogun”s first wife. She attended the 50th birthday party of the actor in company with her kids, Zinnat and Jamal. She’s said to be a singer. What did she say of her estranged husband, Saidi as he clocked 50?
Faithia was Saidi’s second wife and the couple separated in 2006. Their official divorce was in 2014. They had two children.
Recall that after his divorce from Faithia, Saidi had remarried one Funke Elegushi, a younger sister to HRM Oba Saheed Elegushi, Kusenla III of Ikate land, Lagos. They lived together in their Magodo GRA, Lagos home.
Saidi and Funke were seen together for some years (maybe four) and in 2016 when he celebrated his 49th birthday, she told a magazine who called her to make a wish for her husband on his birthday that she was never married to him!
She said, “Please, go and ask him. He’s the one doing birthday. Call him. I don’t have any wish for him. I wish him well. Saidi is not my husband. I don’t have a husband. I’m not married. I’m still single.’
Meanwhile, before marrying this woman, Saidi had dated actress Funke Adesiyan.
No one is sure if Saidi divorced Sherifat officially or not.
