In an interview with a popular daily, UK-based Nigerian star actress and model, Alaba Olatunde, who gave a good account of herself in the movie KO GBODO YE, which also featured Muyiwa Ademola, revealed that His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ooni Ojaja II of Ife is a cute man and she would have loved to date him, but sadly will never happen, not even in her wildest dreams.
“The new Ooni is really a cute man. I’d love to date him, but sadly will never be able to fulfill.
It’s a taboo in Yoruba land to lie with a King you are not legally and traditionally married to.
Calamity will befall such lady.
And it’s hard to get rid of such. This is one of the major reasons Kings in Yoruba land are allowed to marry as many wives as they wish,” admits Alaba.
On what people may think or say about her,
“I figured out that Nigerians do not appreciate the truth; they do not appreciate honesty.
It’s a known fact that I’m very much prettier than his wives, both previous and present one.
Do not see this as a way of throwing myself at him cos I’m not ready to be an ‘Olori’, as there are certain things you are bound to.”
On her relationship with Fathia Balogun,
“She is the sister I never had. I was excited to see my pictures with her all over. It was a great experience meeting her after a prolonged period of time. Her energy, vibe and aura was inspiring.”
You would recall that the pretty actress once recounted how her colleague and former friend, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe stabbed her multiple times over a man.
In the interview she granted then, she said Bisi had got wind of her relationship with a man Bisi was also interested in and so she came for her with a syringe.
In her words ”
I almost dated one actor/movie director, but I got my fingers burnt because his girlfriend then, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe caught us and dealt with me seriously; I still have the marks on me.
It was the popular actor/movie director who asked me out and we got very close. But before we could get any further, Bisi, who was one of his girlfriends, came to meet me at a movie location in Abeokuta.
On that day, I just had my bath and was just coming out of the bathroom; in fact, I was just tying my towel. She was so furious and started shouting that I should leave her boyfriend alone!
But before I could say anything, she had brought out a syringe from her back and stabbed me several times in the buttock. I was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital.
But I thank God I survived it.
When asked if the case was reported to the police, the actress said;
No, it was resolved by the elders in the industry.
She was asked to apologize and she did.
But we are no more friends.
Her so-called boyfriend never reckoned with her afterwards. She thought I was the one preventing her from having a swell time with the guy, but she didn’t know it was another actress.
