According to E247 magazine, a Lagos-based trader identified as Modinat Nike Dada, who is in her 30's, has claimed to be 7 months pregnant for pretty actress Funke Akindele's husband Almaroof Oloyede Kehinde popularly known as Kendo.
According to the woman, her romantic affair with Almaroof started after she moved with her sister, who is a tenant in one of Almaroof's shops in Oshodi.
After her first marriage to one Dayo, Modinat (a mother of two) went to her elder sister who sells cloth at Oshodi to continue with her life. It was there Modinat reportedly met Almaroof. One thing led to the other and a romantic affair began between them.
The magazine reported that in a desperate effort to become pregnant for Almaroof before marriage, both Modinat and Almaroof visited some spiritualists to help out. So, when the already pregnant woman heard about Funke Akindele's marriage to Almaroof in the media, she became devastated.
It was also reported that Modinat has been put under pressure to keep a sealed lip on the issue and never let it get to the press.
The magazine further reported that close associates of Funke Akindele have warned Modinat not to expose the story and was reportedly promised juicy offers as a reward for keeping quiet. As the magazine puts it, the woman was given a posh apartment in Agege area of Lagos where she currently stays.
As it stands, Almaroof is now expecting three babies from three women. One from Funke Akindele, who is presently pregnant; one from his second wife, Fadekemi believed to put to bed soon and Modinat expected to give him a baby probably in December 2012. These will add up to the five children Almaroof already has.
