Nollywood Actress: Foluke Daramola Finally Re-marries
Contrary to the expectations of her critics, controversial actress, Foluke Daramola is set to wed her lover and business associate, Olukayode Salako, in a traditional ceremony that is scheduled to take place in Lagos on Friday, February 15, 2013 (today).
The couple may have decided to have a low-key wedding, which will be attended by only close friends and relations, in order to avoid getting entangled in another web of negative reactions from their critics and other members of the public.
In a text message, which she sent to Art & Life on Wednesday, Daramola said, “My hearthrob, Olukayode Ezekiel Salako, would like to engage me, Foluke Omolola Daramola, amongst a few family members and friends, in a traditional wedding engagement on the February 15, which coincides with my birthday, at 2, Gbeleyi Avenue, by Femifoam Oyemekun College Road, Ifako-Ijaiye.Time:12 noon. Please, no African time and pray for us ahead. Your presence will gladden our ‘heart’, God bless u.”
Daramola was married before with two children. Until now, her whirlwind romance with Salako, a businessman, politician and civil rights activist, had been the subject of much debate within the social circles of Lagos.
In a previous interview with the The PUNCH, the actress had said that marriage was not on her agenda. She had expressed her desire to proceed on further studies abroad.
Apart from that, Daramola and the groom-to-be had planned to start a non-governmental organisation, known as Change Agents, that would work towards promoting patriotism among young Nigerians.
At the moment, it appears that marriage is uppermost in their minds. Perhaps, tomorrow’s wedding is aimed at finally shutting up their critics and others who have accused the actress of breaking Salako’s marriage of many years.
