There are speculations that you are in a relationship with King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal. Can you clear the air on your closeness to him?

When you see a man and a woman standing even under a tree, you would easily conclude that there is something going on between them. The relationship between myself, and KWAM I was ordained by God. I had been working as a Board Member of the State Ministry of Youth and Sports before I met him. I had contested several elections and lost, but somebody with whom I had worked with else where told me to go and meet KWAM 1, that he would be of help to me. In Isolo, where I come from, there are two people that are very prominent in my history, Dr. Fredrick Fasehun, and KWAM I. You cannot ignore these two people. The day I went there, I gave them my business card at the gate, and I told them I was from the Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Sports and he gave me audience. I told him that I had contested election twice and lost and that I needed him to support me. He gave me an endorsement, as his candidate and since then, we have worked together.

So, the allegation that I was dating KWAM 1 is baseless and untrue. To even go further, I can tell you that for three years after my marriage broke up, I never set my eyes on him. Thank God, that there was no link. If there had been a link, people would have had photographic evidence. The irony of it all is that Wasiu and I are even related. His mother is from Ilupeju in Lagos and my father’s mother and Wasiu’s mother are first cousins; so he is my big brother. There are people that I consider very important to me. I call helpers of destiny. They have helped me in my journey. Wasiu has helped me at a point, so I cannot leave him. He is not my boyfriend, husband or sugar daddy. He is my father and he would remain so in my life.
