Certain blogs went aflame with news that Nollywood actress Funke Akindele-Oloyede and her husband Almaroof Oloyede had gone separate ways due to a post that was allegedly made and deleted on his Facebook account. It reportedly read:
“It’s with heavy heart that am announcing the separation of me nd ma wife Mrs olufunke akindele,we’ve both agreed to go our separate ways coz of irreconcilable differences.we still best of friends nd we 4ever remain gud friends.
Linda Ikeji, who broke the story stated that Funke’s publicist confirmed the matter. However, Funke Akindele’s elder sister, who is also her publicist denied the allegations;

However as at the time of writing this report, Funke’s Twitter page still reads Oloyede ( her husbands surname)
Funke has also not responded to the statement as anxious fans await her response, hopeful of its refutal.
If Funke also decides not to respond to the public, it means that she has decided to keep private matters private and that should be respected.
