Yomi Fabiyi and Fran are going their separate ways
On Saturday, December 22, 2012, popular Yoruba actor, Yomi Fabiyi got married to his British lover, Fran (a Human Resource consultant) at the Apapa Registry.
At that time, the wedding was met with mixed reactions, especially because Fran is older and is based in the UK.
Almost four years after, the marriage is on the rocks and the actor, who is currently in the UK, has spoken out saying he hopes his wife will accept his proposition to end the marriage.
Yomi Fabiyi is open-hearted about his life:
‘It’s so sad that a lot of people never give me the benefit of the doubt. Only a handful think it is right to respect my freedom of choice. I have been unlucky in life, most of what I do normally have opposite impression irrespective of my positive mindset. I cannot help it and will rather prefer to continue to be real as possible; I am used to being misinterpreted my entire adult life. I never aim to hurt anybody in words or actions before them or behind them. I am never raised that way. They forget that some people no matter how horrible the situation, still has some dignity left in them.’
He has also been raised to know that no matter how small the interactions he has with anybody, he should not let his manners slip. It cost nothing but could win a whole lot of goodwill. Moreso, he has been vigorously warned by the parents never to prove to know if what he is ready to give out is a guess.
Hopefully Fran accepts his proposition to end this marriage now as he cannot continue this way, HE IS NOT HAPPY anymore as they edge close to the 4th year anniversary. Fran is such a beautiful woman, supportive and wishes her husband to come live in England, take up employment and study.
HE HAS USED HER DOCUMENTS TO RENEW HIS standard VISA ONLY, so no question she is not willing him to say that. With all humility, if she never promised him she is coming to take up employment in Nigeria and live with him, maybe they may not have secured the dating.
He has made it abundantly clear he is not prepared to live abroad as his career was just gathering shape then.
The outlook of his choice may look familiar to those marriages, but he never thought people would think of him that way. He has to live with that, but sometimes it can be so bruising.
Yomi Fabiyi speaks in public:
‘I am focused on my career and keeping my fans and admirers entertained. I have an absolute right to do whatever makes me happy provided it is nothing criminal, illegal, immoral or anti-social. I am NOT interested in the reason two adults came together. It’s crude and an uncivilized thing to do for me. I HOPE I FIND real LOVE AGAIN WHILE I PUSH FOR An HITCH-FREE DIVORCE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I will be okay guys. Thank you.’
