London based journalist, Yetunde Oduwole has found new love again, yemojanews.com can exclusively report.
We learnt that Yetunde who broke up with her husband, Babs Adegbenjo, (also a journalist) about six years ago is now in the arms of an upcoming Yoruba comic actor, Babatunde Bernard popularly known as Baba Tee.
Our source said Yetunde Oduwole who is a columnist with City People Magazine is so ecstatic about her new romance with the young 2006 Mass Communication graduate of Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) that she hurriedly arranged a secret marriage between her and the actor in
London few days ago.
What shocked many friends of the latest couple is the age difference between them.
Yetunde, according to what we heard will celebrate her 41st birthday on Tuesday, February 14, 2012, while Baba Tee is 33 years old.
yemojanews.com source also wondered why the duo rushed into marriage as they reportedly met in the early week of November 2011.
“Yetunde lives in London, but Baba Tee came to London for the first time in November 2011. He was in London with all these Nollywood artistes for the yearly Afro-Hollywood award ceremony promoted by popular lawyer cum movie producer, Tunji Bamishigbin. That was the first time he set his eyes on Yetunde,” our source declared.
Shedding more light on how the affair started, our source told us that in order to cut expenses in London; the organizers of the trip contacted some Nigerians living in London who could accommodate the artistes for the period of the award.
“Baba Tee and some other artistes were asked to squat at Yetunde’s council apartment at Abbeywood, you won’t believe that somehow, a chemistry began to develop between Yetunde and Baba Tee. That was how they began to have sex in Yetunde’s house,” the source explained.
After the November awards ceremony in London, Baba Tee, and his other colleagues in the movie industry flew back into the country.
But we learnt that Yetunde who has two sons for her ex- husband is so madly in love with the young actor who is still trying to find his feet in the industry that she pursued the actor to Nigeria few days later.
“Yetunde came to Nigeria and begged Baba Tee to marry her. Baba Tee agreed, followed her back to London where they got married secretly,” one of Yetunde’s friends told us.
Meanwhile, a close friend to Yetunde’s ex husband is skeptical about her marriage to Baba Tee, “Yetunde is not officially divorced from Babs. Though they have been separated for the past six years, I can tell you confidently that there is no legal divorce paper. Though Tetunde and Babs Adegbenjo got married in Nigeria before they relocated to London, the fact still remains that she is not divorce. So, if Yetunde marries Baba Tee in London, then, she has committed a crime.
She should have perfected her divorce before jumping into another marriage.”
However, another friend of Yetunde is worried about the future of the new union. The source reminded yemojanews.com of Yetunde’s romance with another
young actor, Aremu Afolayan (Kunle Afolayan’s younger brother) after the crash of her marriage.
It should be recalled that a couple of years ago, Yetunde was in Nigeria and began to date Aremu Afolayan. When the affair became a public issue, Yetunde and Aremu stormed media houses in Lagos, granting interviews and professing their undying love for each other. The duo
even started to flaunt their engagement rings. Many had thought the relationship was going to end up in marriage. At the end, both of them went their separate ways and sources said the younger Aremu walked out of the affair over age differences.
“I pray Yetunde’s crush for younger guys will not destroy her. It’s her life and we should all continue to pray for the new couple,” our source said.
