Nigerian comedian Oluwaseyi Aletile Lawrence, popularly known as Seyi Law, and his wife, Stacy have parted ways after almost 8 years of marriage.
Seyi Law took to Instagram about an hour ago to announce their separation while stating that their 2-year-old daughter, Tiwalola is safe and good
His post reads;
“Due to irreconcilable differences would have been enough to announce this, but the kind and beautiful heart of my ex-wife must be stated. She is one of the best women I have ever known.
It is however sad, that I announce that my wife and I have decided to path ways for good. We will appreciate your love and support at this time. God bless you. Tiwaloluwa is safe and good.”
Seyi Law and Stacy got married in March 2011 after dating for 3 years.
The lovebirds had a recent interview with Punch about their marriage, explaining how they cope with their tribal difference.
Read Excerpts below:
How would you describe your marriage?
Ebere : It has been wonderful, fun, divine, amazing and awesome. He is a wonderful person every woman would want to have. He is funny and cracks me up even in the house. But when he is serious, you would know because he would not be smiling. You would just know when he is not joking.
Were there oppositions from family members?
Seyi Law : The oppositions did not really matter. The people who objected to it were not the people that mattered to me. I saw them as people that were scared that once I got married; they would stop getting certain benefits from me. They were just fighting for their pockets. The most important people saw her as someone I should marry. The person I thought would object to me getting married to someone from another tribe was my father, but when he met her, he liked her personality.
Ebere : My mother was sceptical about me marrying a Yoruba man, but the first day she met him, she liked him. There were no oppositions at all.
How have you coped despite the tribal difference?
Ebere : We understand each other. I am from Abia State but I speak Yoruba, and his native dialect, Ilaje.
