The three Ogunwusi sisters
The three sisters, who have a reputation of displaying an overt act of intrusion in their brothers’ marriages and affairs, are alleged to have advised their brother against taking Funmi as a second wife. They are said to have disapproved of Funmi because they claimed she is over-exposed and loves seeking undue publicity.
Even though the icy reception she is getting from the three Ogunwusi sisters is said to be giving Funmi sleepless nights, she is determined to work hard towards making her love for Prince Adegboyega triumphs over the thorns of anger and disapproval, coming from her would-be in-laws.
Though married, Prince Adegboyega has always being a private individual. In the same vein, his first wife doesn’t embrace publicity or seek media attention.
Sources disclosed exclusively to Kemiashefonlovehaven that the handsome prince and Funmi launched an impressive outing during the coronation of Ooni Ogunwusi in December 2015 after which the two lovers kept their affair on a low-profile scale.
However, the recent birthday celebration of Prince Ogunwusi, afforded Funmi with the opportunity to make public their affair. The party-loving lady literarily bombarded social media platforms with pictures from the pre and post birthday celebration.
