Like a crushed knight fleeing the gates of a fallen fortress, Moji, ex-wife of Gbenga Obasanjo, has fled the matrimonial home she shared with Dr Akinkunmi Abiodun Mustapha, former Lagos State Commissioner for Finance. As much as she and her inner circle want to keep the news hush-hush, it has been revealed that the union between the couple has irretrievably broken down.

Broken marriages seem to have become second nature to the dark-skinned Moji. The daughter of billionaire Alex Onabanjo, toothy Moji got married to Gbenga, the first son of former President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2000. They were soon blessed with two kids before they began to experience the hiccups associated with arranged, silver-spoon kids’ marriages. The marriage eventually hit the iceberg.

For several years, Moji shunned the limelight and became a virtual pariah until she was later swept off her feet by Dr Akinkunmi, the urbane academic who later became Commissioner for Finance.

In October 2016, after about a year in office, he was relieved of his position alongside Ekundayo Mobereola and Folorunsho Coker, former Commissioners for Transport and Tourism and Culture respectively by Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

Moji was in love again and they soon moved in with each other. In 2011, she welcomed a baby boy in the United States. Years down the line, Moji is back to a path that has become all too familiar and familial. Moji’s father, the Ogun State-born billionaire businessman popularly called Alex O by peers, also parted ways with his wife of over 40 years, Lanre Adesanya-Onabanjo (aka Sisi Bus Stop), a few years ago.

When the going was good, they were a model couple to their children, associates, family and friends. Everybody wished for their kind of wedlock as they radiated infectious love and companionship. It was, therefore, a rude shock to their loved ones when news of their separation broke out. Sources disclosed that the union between the Onabanjos started suffering cracks shortly after their third daughter, Omobusola, got married.

It was also gathered that the couple was involved in a property project in Parkview Estate, Ikoyi, and, as such, decided to move from their GRA Ikeja residence to a smaller apartment in Ikoyi, pending when their mansion would be ready. No sooner had they settled in than Alex O had the separation epiphany. Needless to say, Lanre was shattered. She felt betrayed by the man she had looked up to and stood by through thick and thin.

But Alex O stood his ground and insisted he was determined to spend the rest of his life without the mother of his five daughters and grandmother of several grandchildren. And he has since refused to shift his position. The couple’s children reportedly made efforts to reconcile them, but their efforts were futile. The marriage was strained beyond redemption. So is Moji’s who has now moved into one of her father’s serviced flats in Parkview Estate, Ikoyi. Would Moji ever get it right again with marriage?

    He’s married like three times before. Shaming the woman and letting the man off. Terrible.
