Popular Nollywood actress Liz Anjorin is officially off the market as she recently tied the knot with the love of her life.
The actress who is mostly known for her roles in Yoruba movies recently shared the good news with fans and followers on her official Instagram page.
The next day, photos of her quiet wedding engagement to the lucky dude surfaced online and made headlines.
In a statement she posted to back up the photos celebrating her wedding, jubilant Liz Anjorin praised the hitherto mystery lover for his loyalty to their collective covenant never to make the 14-year-old affair a public topic until it was time to do so.
Although Liz has never been married, she is now in the league of single celebrity ladies that are attracted to married men.
According to an insider, if the major reason attached to romantic affairs between a single lady and a married man is a financial benefit, then Liz wouldn’t have been in a relationship with the groom who is identified as Lawal Lateef Gboyega a.k.a. Sologo. The reason is that Lateef was not known to be a star figure neither does he run any big business that could earn him the affection of such an averagely well-off lady like Liz.
According to Global Excellence, Lateef, a scrap metals dealer whose workshop is based in Ikorodu, Lagos State, is already married to four wives who live under his roof namely Kemi, Jumoke, Fola, and Kenny, with eight children. Liz Anjorin would be 5th wife! The source added that although Lateef lives an expensive lifestyle, his economic standing is actually below the average. His playboy lifestyle, the source posits, probably drew Liz’s attention to him in the beginning.
The actress herself referenced Lateef’s past charity gestures to her family in her wedding post.
She wrote; “saying yes is like paying back 1% of your 1001 good deeds to me and my late mother. My father, my brother, my comforter, my gist partner, my paddy, my husband, none of the good deeds you gave me spread to a third party or internet till tomorrow…”
However, if what the star actress desires in marrying other women’s husband is true relationship benefits like attention and emotional understanding, the source said, she would need to consult her four predecessors who not only feed their children and pay their school fees but also pay their own rents allegedly without input from their husband.
The source informed Global Excellence that there have always been complaints of tension, quarrels, and neglect in Lateef’s polygamous marriage while he dated Liz secretly. Despite that the wives alone care for their eight children namely Ayomide, Hamdalat, Hammed, Abdulrahmon, Wuraola, and Latifat, with the new babies delivered by Fola and Kenny in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic break, the source hinted that they also silently bear scars of physical and emotional tortures.
According to the source, two of the women have been sent packing by their landlords when they could not meet up with their house rents. “Lateef would feel provoked and beat any of them who dared ask for rent support. He would ask them to find a way to pay their house rents. Two of his wives were given quit notices recently by their landlords when they couldn’t pay their rents. Lateef stays in a room self-contain apartment in Ikorodu yet he lives big on credit,” alleged the source who warned that there are things more essential in the type of Liz’s new life than just love.
Labo Entertainment Frontline Act Dotman Releases Much-Anticipated Debut Album ‘Enugbe’
Labo Entertainment’s frontline music act, Dotman, has released his much-awaited debut album ‘Enugbe’ after a painstaking moment in the studio working to satisfy the yearning of his teeming fans.
Since the release of his 2018 single track tagged ‘Iyawo Mi’, Dotman has not failed to show that he is a good singer and an entertainer. Ahead of ‘Iyawo Mi’, an African romance-inspired song, Dotman in 2016 dropped a hit single, ‘Akube’, which was well received and instantly catapulted him as an artiste to watch out for.
Labo Entertainment, an indigenous A-rated music label, signed Dotman as his single biggest catch yet. According to Olabisi Akanbi, the CEO of Labo Entertainment, his interest in Dotman is not focused in making a profit alone, but also, as an African, he is enticed primarily to the fast-rising singer’s unique creativity for quality music.
“It was his unique art that attracted me,” Akanbi declared to newsmen during the public launch of ‘Enugbe’, a Yoruba parlance for ‘Recession’, last Friday in Ikeja, Lagos State. He continued: “I had followed his style since he was an undergraduate at the University of Lagos. When he left UNILAG, I invited him for business and we both worked on the business proposal.
Born Olatunji Oladotun Alade, Dotman is six years old in the music industry, yet he is fast building his way up with his cool mien, current and witty slangs. His dream for the rapid rise in the industry, he said at the launch, is helped by the experience he garnered featuring in musical collaborations with top names like Davido, 9ice, Mr Eazi, and some others.
Both Dotman and Labo Entertainment CEO reiterated their contractual terms to remain ‘brothers’ irrespective of unseen circumstances, with Akanbi promising to throw everything in his possession to make Dotman a global brand while the partnership lasts.
Labo Entertainment which hitherto had other music acts such as Konga, Sideone, Ecoman, and Smapee on its label also used the ‘Enugbe’ launch to introduce another promising showbiz act, DJ Tough.
