What is your relationship now with Saidi Balogun?
Saidi Balogun is my kids father. He is my friend and my mentor. He thought me so much. He is going to remain my best friend.
You still bear his name, what will you say about it?
Do you want me to drop the name?
No I am just asking, why don’t you want to drop the name?
Why will I drop the name? I have two beautiful kids, Khalid Balogun and Aliyah Balogun, so tell me why I am going to drop Balogun.
The father of your children had an accident, what actually led to the break up?
Hmm… I want to say something today, I don’t really want to talk about my relationship with my children’s father. It is a thing of the past and I don’t really want to talk about it. Saidi and I are best friends, and it is going to be like that. Fine, he had an accident, and I was there all through, we were together. Let it just be like a natural and normal thing. We are friends and that is just it.
Have you been married before?
Were you ever divorced, what happened between you and Saidi Balogun?
Nothing happened between us, nothing.
Assuming you are in the American Embassy and you are being asked, are you still married?
Yes we are married
Yes we are still married. I am in the embassy abi?
Is Fathia Balogun still married?
Yes I am married
To Saidi Balogun
There is a story we gathered that Saidi Balogun is married. What would you say about it?
I don’t think so.
Have you gotten that news?
No. I think I am hearing it for the first time here.
You have not read it in the papers?
That he found a new love?
What if he now decides to get married?
Saidi is a Muslim, yeah. Even on our engagement day, it was said that ‘Mee ni Olorun wi, Saidi can marry 4 wives, 3, 20. Iya le ni mi (I am his first wife). They can come in it, doesn’t matter now.
Iya Kalid, Are you saying that you can walk up to him and say, ‘it is my turn to sleep in your house’
Ofcourse, why not? If it is my turn, it is my turn. If Saidi is married up to 1-10, won ma pin ojo ni. So, when it is my turn on Friday, no one would argue with me that Friday is not my day. Don’t you get, nobody will argue about that.
