‘We were never married,’ Nollywood actress confirms separation from colleague after eight years with twins


Bukola Awoyemi, the Yoruba actress popularly known as Arugba, has parted ways with Damola Olatunji, her baby daddy.

The actress announced her split from Olatunji via her Instagram page on Tuesday.

A letter issued by Spring Worth Law Firms, Bukola’s lawyers, claimed the pair were never married — after eight years of being together.

It added that they have both agreed to jointly ensure that their children’s welfare is guaranteed

“We are solicitors to Ms. Bukola Awoyemi, also known as Arugba, herinafter referred to as our client and on whose instruction we give this Notice,” the letter reads.

“Please take note that our client, Bukola Awoyemi and Mr. Damola Olatunji are no longer an item. They have gone their separate ways and this is without any hard feelings or ill will.

“They have never been married to each other but are blessed with two lovely children(twins).

“They have both agreed to jointly ensure that the wellbeing and welfare of their two children is guaranteed.

“Our client wishes Mr. Damola Olatunji God’s continued blessings. Thank you.”


The letter, however, didn’t reveal the cause of their separation.

Bukola and Olatunji welcomed their two children (twins) in 2015.
