Kazim Adeoti, Nigerian movie marketer and husband to Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, has debunked claims by his first wife, Oluwafunsho that she solely furnished their matrimonial home.
Oluwafunsho took to her Instagram page on Monday, where she issued a stern warning to the new couple as regards posting pictures and videos, taken in the said house.
The mother of four claimed she spoke with the couple privately before publicly criticising the actress’ social media posts, which included pictures and videos taken in the house furnished with her “hard-earned money.”
In now-deleted posts, she shared private chats in which she warned her husband saying, “the next time Mercy makes another post in that house that I furnished with my hard-earned money, and posts it on social media, my next move will be brutal on this so-called social media towards both of you.”
Reacting to the post, Adeoti stated in a post on his Instagram page on Monday that his first wife’s claims were erroneous.
He wrote, “I have read many things that have been written about me and my family. Many of which are fabricated lies and some directly from my first wife (which understandably is angry I married a second wife).”
“In as much as there is nothing bad in husband and wife building house together, in my case, we did not. I built the house by myself,” he added.
Adeoti also explain that, while his first wife had provided some furnishings for their home, he had reimbursed her for a portion of the costs.
“When I was furnishing the house, she bought some furnishing materials and part of the money I have refunded. My second wife had added some furnishing to the house as well.
“It is not in my character to speak ill of people who were once friends, not to talk of my first wife (who is still my wife as we speak). I will not speak ill of her for the sake of good and bad times we shared and the good kids that God gave us,” he said.
Adeoti and Aigbe trended on social media when they went public with their marriage in March.
