•Why he can’t keep his wives in his bed
• A pig with lipstick is still a pig – FFKl
• His imperative for an urgent intervention
Do women love Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK)? He thinks he is a gift to womankind. But women think of him as a spurious breed of the upper-crust. Many would liken him to a deceptive male, who affects the the character of a gent without the sophistication and discipline.
From his recent melt-down with a Daily Trust journalist to his controversial dalliances with the opposite sex, FFK could be misjudged with a temper problem.
Yet he would contend that unlike the proverbial epileptic, he is never given to epileptic fits lest he ends up bound with galling chains and bowed beneath fetters. He would tell you that he is neither fractious nor given to cruelty in barbarian circuits.
Even so, his inability to successfully lead a close-knit family, honour a woman and sustain her abiding love may render him desolate, lacerated with loneliness and scourged with vile in the long run.
According to one of his former wives, Fani-Kayode delights in juvenile lust to the detriment of even his most treasured relationships, that is why he experiences no scruples ditching any lover, no matter what value the woman has added to his life.
This is no doubt a fair assessment of the former aviation minister as he is on the verge of ditching Precious Chikwendu , his wife number five .
Before his marriage to his First Wife, Saratu Attah, he was in a relationship with Bianca whom he met in London during her A-levels. The relationship yielded no fruit as he cheated on Bianca with Saratu Attah whom he impregnated and later got married to in 1987.
His marriage with Saratu Attah, the daughter of the former second republic governor of Kwara State produced a baby girl, Folake, who is now an attorney in a United Kingdom (U.K) firm. Saratu relocated to Ghana after her messy divorce with Fani-Kayode.
Then he met Yemisi Adeniji, who he got married to in 1990. His marriage with Yemisi was stormy and mired in a lot of issues. Although Yemisi bore him three pretty girls: Temitope, Tobiloba and Atuminu, the marriage which he described as “unpleasant and bitter” ended in 1993. Fani-Kayode subsequently admitted that “put her through hell with his strange behavior, strange habits and strange ways.”
Yemisi Adeniji moved on and got married to soft-spoken Dahiru Wada, whom she bore two boys and just recently, her first daughter, Temitope, got engaged to Jaiye Bashorun, J.K Randle’s son.
When his second marriage hit the rocks, he met another beauty in Ghana in 1993, Regina Patience Amonoo, who he dated for a while and later got married to in 1997.
He regards Regina as his ‘real wife’ because of the role she played in his life. According to him, Regina stood by him through thick and thin. But his excessive philandering nature did not allow him concentrate on his “real wife”. While he was a minister, he was involved with a lady called Chioma Anasoh. Investigations revealed that luck smiled on Chioma when she met Fani-Kayode, no sooner than she met him than her life changed. The erstwhile anonymous lady started living the charmed life of a princess; she acquired choice properties in London, Lekki and Dubai on Fani-Kayode’s bill.
So smitten was Chioma by Fani-Kayode that she allegedly tattooed the minister’s initials, FFK, on a sensitive part of her mammary gland. Chioma was so infatuated with him that she desperately sought to marry him but the lawyer-turned politician rejected her. While he was married to Regina, he was also involved with a young lady who just finished from the University of Lagos (UNILAG). The lady’s name was Vivian Agbaza. He met Vivian in Lagos and later asked her to move in with him in his Abuja home.
Just like every other opportunist, Vivian jumped at the offer and moved in with him. FFK lived with her for many years. He sponsored her Master’s Degree in U.K. But the glutton in her made her demand for more as if FFK was her ATM. But when he went broke and couldn’t meet up with her needs again, they fought and ended the relationship on a messy note. Eventually, Fani-Kayode leaked nude picture of her online with the caption “Lessons for today- buy fresh pampers for your shitting father and stop trying to teach your elders and betters any life lessons. A pig with lipstick is still a pig.”
While all these happened, Regina, who is based in Ghana prayed for him to be released from bondage as she believed he was under a spell. Even in his broke state, Regina forgave him and stood by him through the most difficult times with her adopted daughter, Oluwaremilekun, and Femi also promised never to leave her except she says otherwise.
It can be recalled that Fani-Kayode who was severely broke enjoyed a reprieve from poverty with his appointment as the Director of Media and Publicity for President Jonathan’s re-election.
However, now that Precious has left him, we only pray he finds someone soon.
Perhaps Fani-Kayode would hearken to the voice of reason and honour his pledge to Regina, his faithful wife lest he is forced to learn in a harsh, bitter way that the delight of lust is gross and brief and weariness treads on desire. (Capital NG)
