Star actor, Saidi Balogun and his estranged wife, Fathia, may have put their marital squabbles behind them and embraced peace at last.
From all indications, peace has tentatively returned between the couple who has remained like day and night for years as encomium.ng sighted the two movie stars at the burial of their colleague, Moji Olaiya on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, exchanging pleasantries and discussing in the presence of their colleagues – Muyiwa Ademola, Bimbo Oshin and others.
Our findings revealed that Saidi and Fathia’s discussion centred mainly on the former’s 50th birthday scheduled for Friday, July 7, 2017. Fathia, we learnt, has built up interest to identify with her estranged hubby on his golden jubilee celebrations.
encomium.ng’s further findings, however, revealed that James Bond, as Saudi is also known, may have heeded the advice of widely celebrated monarch, Ooni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja 2) who had earlier instructed the talented role interpreter to remain calm on the issues concerning his marital problems and concentrate on his career.
Saidi and Balogun had parted ways about 10 years ago, shortly after the former was involved in a ghastly auto crash which almost sent him to the great beyond.
Allegations and counter allegations of infidelity and distrust from both sides were said to have been responsible for the collapse of the union which produced two children – Halia and Khalid.
An industry source who pleaded anonymity confirmed the development, saying, “Yes, that will be the first time Saidi and Fathia would be seen discussing publicly since they have gone their separate ways many years back. So, no one can tell what will happen next.”
