Sophie Alakija’s relationship and marriage
Sophie Alakija was previously married to Wale Alakija, the son of Nigeria’s richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija.
Sophie, who was reportedly an ex-girlfriend of Nigerian music star, Wizkid, got married to Wale Alakija in a low-key Islamic traditional wedding on March 27, 2016, in Surulere, Lagos.
Her marriage with her estranged husband produced two children, one of which she gave birth to the same year she got married.
Unfortunately, the marriage crashed after three years in late 2019, but the news only hit the media in 2020 after a popular controversial gossip blog site, Gistlovers brought it to public notice.
According to the blog site, it was discovered after much scrutiny on the actress’s social media page that she has deleted all photos of her husband and family members on her Instagram page.
The blog also reported that Sophie Alakija abandoned her marriage and children in 2019, to go live the “baby girl” life with her friends, Efe Irele and Timini Egbuson who is referred to as her ‘pimp‘ by the blog site.
Reports also had it that the actress has refused all settlements plans by both families. However, she stuck to her estranged husband’s family name ‘Alakija’ probably due to the respect the name commands in society, deleting it only from her Twitter bio.
The supposed separation of Sophie and Wale came as a shock to the public as the actress was always flaunting her ex-husband on the media while they were still married.
However, neither of the two parties has said anything to affirm or debunk the reports about their divorce.
