“My Spiritual Attack Made Me Marry OMOBA LANKO”-New Wife, FOLASHADE SHOREMI Finally Speaks



Folashade Shoremi is the 3rd legally married wife of renowned comic actor, Princess Lanko Omoba Dubai and the union has been in existence for about 8 years now. She is also a socialite and the boss of Slamtop Boutique located at Onipanu, Palm groove, Ikeja and Ajah, Lagos. A few years ago, news broke that the actor dumped his wife, Madam No Network, who is also an actress for another woman with whom he lived in Abeokuta for years. Then, people mistook the woman for Folashade. Recently, City People GBOLAHAN ADETAYO cornered the woman of many parts at an event where she revealed to us the truth about her story, and how her spiritual attack made her marry the actor among other interesting issues. Enjoy the excerpts:


How did you meet your husband?

We first met about 18 years ago at country club but I didn’t give him attention. About 8 years ago, I was very sick but before then, we met somewhere and he later came to my shop to patronize me. He asked me if I remember his face again and that was all. When I was sick, he was the only person who stood by me. He helped me a lot, he took me to somewhere in Kabba for treatment and since then, I see him as someone you shouldn’t run away from.


How did the love affair come in?

Someone who stood you in your trying period is your helper, the love affair started immediately after I recovered from the strange ailment.


When he first met you 18 years ago, did he ask you out?

It is normal for a man to ask a woman out at party but I wasn’t interested, I waved it away but it has been destined that we will still marry each other. My meeting him again is a long story.


Why did you reject him the first time?

He was the MC of the event, and he was making his hilarious jokes generally as a comedian. He was like Mama you are not bad etc, I didn’t take him seriously and that was all. There was a friend of mine known as Larry K, a popular person; he was the one who made me marry him later.


Can you expatiate more on that?

He was like the middle man between us. He gave him my mobile number and when he got it was when he paid a visit to my shop. From there, love advances towards me, but when I was seriously sick, and I wasn’t married or dating anybody as at then, I called him and he helped me out.


What kind of ailment is that?

It wasn’t really an illness but a spiritual attack. It was one of the trials you get as a business person. I have several shops in different locations in Lagos, and of course beefing will surely come in. I give thanks to God Almighty. Between Bariga to Pedro Road, I was the first to establish boutiques in that area over 23 years ago.


Did you start the business with boutique?

Yes! I started my business as a boutique owner. I am also into cosmetics business and I mix cream for people.


Were you married to another man when you first rejected his offer?

Not at all. But I have never been to an event and a man asks me out and I say yes, because I am not a prostitute, I waved it away but Larry K is like a brother to me. He is Lanko’s fan and that was why he found it easy to link us again. I later got married to one Mr Ayo who is now late before I married Lanko. I had 2 kids for him. The man was late about 16 years before I later married Lanko, I am not sure if we can still find that kind of woman again. At least 16 years I wasn’t jumping into bed with every man and I just had another baby and my first baby for Lanko a few years back.


People said Lanko fought his wife, Madam No Network to follow another woman……

There was nothing of such. Actually, I wanted to grant this interview to a Yoruba newspaper but I wasn’t chanced, I was out of the country. Lanko and Iya Mistura {Madam No Network} were no longer together again before he married another woman, and after that woman was when he came to me. They were both in Abeokuta and they got separated about 3-4 years before I married him. I wasn’t the one he married straight after Madam No Network but many people don’t know this. I didn’t meet Lanko with any woman when I was about to marry him. I don’t know how he met the Abeokuta woman but I am aware that Madam No Network was already married to another man. That was what Lanko told me.


What was the attraction before you agreed to Marry Lanko?

I have explained that his kind of person got me attracted. He is more like my helper. Everything isn’t about money neither was I searching for a famous person to marry. I have known a lot of famous persons but being a typical Yoruba man got me attracted to him. Like I said, I suffered a spiritual attack and he helped me out of it and that was a good enough reason for me to marry him because if I had died in the attack, what benefit would I gain from it? What if he chose not to help me out? So let us reason this together. He is like my small god.


How is your living together like?

Lanko is a kind of person that you need to have extra patience as a wife to live with him. I am not his first or second wife. I am the 3rd woman who has had babies for him. The Abeokuta woman was like a girlfriend not his wife. I will accept Madam No Network as My “Iyale” {a senior step wife}. He married her legally and same applies with me. He was first married to a woman who gave him 3 children before Madam No Network who had just Mistura for him. Lanko is the type of man that his wife needs to be patient, what I mean is that, he is a famous person and a womanizer. He can go with another woman for weeks. Since we started, he has left for 3 months to flex with another woman but when he came back, I welcomed him; can you now see that it is all about patience? When it got to a stage, he was the one who calm himself down and did the needful when I didn’t show special interest about his attitude. If a woman is not patient enough, you can never have a successful marriage with entertainers. The patience that others didn’t have is the reason that made him to be marrying several women. He is a playful person, once he realizes that he has offended you, he turns the matter to comedy. He sometimes bribes me with cash; he will give me like 200,000 naira to support my business. He is not here but his creator is here with us.


When did you do the wedding ceremony to you and people didn’t know about it?

It wasn’t a quiet wedding. Pasuma and St Janet were the guest artistes to perform at the party. It took place at Isheri, Pasuma performed from day time till night while ST Janet took over from him from 11pm till day break.
