“I feel grateful to see God’s grace. It was all topsy-turvy, but I believed someone up there was fighting for our love,” said Fafowora.
Kuti went further to express more
“Despite all odds, we were reunited after more than ten years of separation and even a divorce.”
“We didn’t say anything. Surprisingly, there was never any personal tension between us, and most people who knew me well predicted that we will reconcile. I used to make fun of them. Tunji Adenuga, my Abuja flatmate, was one of them. Many people who knew me hoped for it for us, but it was difficult to see how it would happen at the time,” he added.
