This is yet another sad news emanating from the Nigeria entertainment Industry, as the crash of the union between Dakore Egbuson and Olumide Akande has been announced.
Reasons to what may have led to this heartbreaking news is yet unknown, but the 11 years old marriage has finally come to an end, excerpt if efforts are put in place immediately to salvage the situation.
A lot of issues are being alleged as to why there may have been a huge crack in their relationship, as according to Dakore during a recent interview, she isn’t going to have more kids after her two daughters, which did not go down well with the Akandes, who want more, or atleast, a male child from her.
According to Dakore, “I am done with childbearing as there is no plan of having more and I am not going back on this”. I have two lovely daughters and they are ok for me.
“The marriage had problems a few years back but the couple tried to make things work out. Many factors were responsible but Dakore became tired of not having enough money to throw around. Her husband, Olumide, who is one of a son of billionaire businessman, Harry Akande, is broke—the money isn’t flowing like when they met, courted and married. Olu lives off his dad and the economy isn’t as buoyant. Even Harry Akande is allegedly not as rich as he was,” reliable sources told Kemi Ashefon.
Many would recollect that Dakore was romantically involved with Olumide, for many years before they were pronounced man and wife at the Guiding Light Assembly, Ikoyi in 2011. A lavish reception that had in attendance elite members of the society was staged at the prestigious KFA Event Place in Lekki. Dakore’s father-in-law, businessman cum politician Chief Harry Akande brought to bear his social and financial clout.
“Olumide sacrificed everything for Dakore. Initially, when he made his intention known to family members that he wanted to marry the actress, hell was loose! No member of his family stood by him. To them, Olu could have gotten a good girl instead of an actress, who is tagged wayward and a gold-digger. He ignored all pleadings and advice. The handsome dude went for Dakore and they were married in 2011. They have two girls as products of the union,” source revealed.
Moreover, the quest for a third child must have allegedly put pressure on the actress who quit the movies long before she married Akande and after their two kids, they relocated to the United States of America. Well, Dakore’s mother-in-law wasn’t pleased with their lifestyle and wanted them in Nigeria where the couple can work towards giving her a grandson!
Others say that in recent times, especially at the One African Music Festival in Dubai, she was sported wearing a bikini dress and was with her brother and fellow actor, Timini, a sight the Akandes thought was an affront against marital norms and may have contributed to what happened recently.
There are allegations of Money and other things, which has not been completely verified as the main reason for this, but whatever it is, we hope they would patch things up soon and get back as husband and wife.
We hear Dakore has moved out of her matrimonial home.
