So it’s Festus Fadeyi! Interesting. I remember his children called out Toke Makinwa few years ago to leave their father alone.
That the man was spending a lot of money on her while being heavily indebted to Skye Bank. Kai. Men are Scum.
Which of your daddies bought a house for Toke Makinwa on credit and now AMCON has repossessed the house?
