Contrary to the tale hovering, star actress, Toyin Aimakhu and actor hubby, Niyi Johnson have denied acquiring a new place of abode at Country Home, Lekki Phase II, Lagos. They added that it’s their wish to own such a befitting structure.

They, however, described the tale as pleasant, despite not laying claim to the ownership of the said marvellous building.

Speaking on behalf of the couple on Thursday, May 29, 2014, the pretty thespian said, “It’s true that we have just moved into a new house in Lekki, Lagos, but the house doesn’t belong to us as being bandied. We have not built any house anywhere. We’re still struggling. We’re young and just growing. The truth is that we have relocated to a new apartment in Lekki, Lagos as well. We were formerly at Ikate area before we packed to Country Home, Lekki Phase II, Lagos.”

“Although, the edifice is wonderful, it’s not ours. We’re praying for such in the nearest future. I think people should remember that my husband and I are just starting life. They should just continue to pray for us. Anyway, it’s a good thing they are wishing us, and it will happen by the special grace of God. The new place is cool, nice and beautifully designed. We’re happy moving there but just as I said, we didn’t build or acquire it. It’s a rented apartment. It’s just a three bedroom apartment, but it’s befitting.”

Asked to clear the air on another good news that she is warming up for motherhood, she reacted, “Please, don’t mind them. Just ignore it. Maybe the kind of dresses I wear atimes are deceiving them.

Anyway, it’s also a good wish. I thank them all.”

Despite the denial by Aimakhu, industry sources insisted that the popular role interpreter is pregnant at the moment. Not only that, she is likely to be in her last trimester.

“Toyin Aimakhu is heavily pregnant now. She is only being economical with the truth. She is parading a protruding tummy, and very soon, she will put to bed.” But when contacted, the famous entertainer again denied it all.

Toyin Aimakhu and hubby, Niyi Johnson staged their low key traditional wedding at the former’s family compound in Ibadan, Oyo State sometime in February 2013. The event was attended by family, friends and few of their colleagues.

Then, on Monday, July 8, 2013, again formalized their union at Ikoyi Marriage Registry, Lagos. It was also attended by a couple of family members from both sides, friends and their colleagues. Followed by a small but classy reception at Sasitex Hotel, Lekki, Epe Expressway, Lagos.

The ceremony attracted colourful personalities form the industry, including Desmond Elliot, Yemi Solade, Dayo Amusa, Fathia Balogun, Foluke Daramola and hubby, Kayode Salako, Mercy Aigbe and hubby, Larry Gentry and others.
