Many Nigerians have wondered why celebrities and even the president of the country go outside the shores of the nation for medical attention, this clearly answers the question. If you are rich and need medical attention, don’t be patriotic with your health, go ABROAD!

The question is, what about those that can’t avoid to go abroad?

We might just be overthinking the issue as celebs these days are learning to put their private lives out of social media but guess what? Tayo also unfollowed the actor on Instagram. Worthy of note is the couple made no attempt to acknowledge their wedding anniversary which was a few weeks back. The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Lagos on the 9th of October, 2016. However, Tayo who was a former air hostess before delving into catering and marrying the actor threw him a lavish birthday party earlier this year.

You would recall that Femi Adebayo was divorced from his first wife Khadijat for 8 years before deciding to settle with Tayo so this comes as a shocker to many of Adebayo’s fans who were honestly counting on this marriage to work.

The actor and SA to the Kwara state government is however yet to make a statement regarding this report.

Hopefully, this is just a bad joke on a Wednesday morning and someone from the actress’s camp would soon address the gist. While we wait, grab some popcorn!
