Many questions remain unanswered how star actress Funke Adesiyan, the pretty Yoruba actress, who has been in hot romance with movie actor Saidi Balogun, decided last Friday to change her status on her social networking website Facebook from engaged to single.

All efforts to reach the pretty actress proved abortive but going through her Facebook wall post a lot of her friends who were obviously shocked with her sudden change of status asked why she had to change her status.

All the pretty unassuming actress wrote on her wall as a reaction to the comments was “Thanks to you all. I believe the decision is best for me. It won’t change anything in me. I’ll still be myself.” It will be recalled that Saidi and Funke stepped out as lovers on Sunday, 18th July, 2010 at City People Entertainment Awards held at 10 Degrees Events Centre, Billingsway Road, Oregun,Ikeja, Lagos. During the event Funke emerged as the Best Upcoming Yoruba movie actress. Immediately Funke was announced the winner of the category, Saidi could not hide his ecstatic reaction as he jumped up from his seat.

In an interview Funke admitted to a Nigerian-based soft sell magazine some months ago ”Saidi Balogun is a good friend. He is my big brother
in the industry. Even those that profess to be his enemies go to him for advice. He has been a wonderful person to me. He is someone I can call on to advise me on whatever I am doing.”When asked if they were in a hot romance, Funke’s reaction was “I have no comment on that. I am not going to comment on that.” According to her they met in 2008. And when asked about their relationship she said “All I can say
is that he is my friend and my brother.”

Funke hails from Ibadan, Oyo State. She is a graduate of Performing Arts from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago Iwoye, Ogun State. She joined the movie industry in 2003 when she featured in Papa Ajasco and Super Story series. She has produced Obinrin Ale and Ayo Kulehin. She has also featured in Aparo and Kakaaki.
