Nollywood actor Saheed Muhammed aka Funky Mallam has said his ex-wife and mother of his only child dumped him because of his precarious financial situation.
Funky Mallam disclosed this in a recent interview in which he said he has found love again.
“The thing is, it’s not every woman that wants to live with you when money is not coming in as expected,” the Fulan-Hausa born actor said.
Recounting how the marriage ended, “She actually asked for a divorce and I told her I would not take her back if she leaves but she left… We kept having problems everyday in the house. I started running temperature and sometimes I just didn’t feel like coming home.”
The Bayero University mass communication graduate, however, revealed that his fiancée and his ex are namesake, adding that their wedding is days away.
He said, “Yes, another woman has taken over… and funny enough, they bear the same name ‘Aisha’. We are looking at next month or in two months’ time because the traditional rite has been done.”
