Nollywood Yoruba actor, Lateef Adedimeji has finally agreed to marry his long-time girlfriend. Reputed to be in a love affair with colleague, Mo Bimpe, their wedding had long been anticipated. As a matter of fact, many thought that the duo had been married before this final ‘settling down.’
The couple, Lateef and Mo Bimpe, had always denied dating each other. Lateef, who has featured in many films and skits on social media explained in an interview with TVC, why he didn’t get married on time.
He said, “It’s just good to take your time. This job is very critical and once an actor makes a wrong choice, that’s could be the end of his career. In acting you have to be balanced emotionally and physically. When the emotion is wrong, you have it all wrong. You can’t have it hot outside as an actor and return home to have it hot too. You need to marry someone who can help with that balance.”
Recall that Adedimeji starred in a movie with actress, Mo Bimpe and everyone assumed it was a legal marriage.
But then, they were lovers and yet to be married.
Meanwhile, speaking on her relationship with Adedimeji, Mo Bimpe said, “I wouldn’t deny the fact that we are close, he is my best friend it’s normal for people to assume a lot because we always act together people cast us together and even in my own project I usually cast him. I’m a filmmaker and a story maker, film making is my passion and he is good, so, you always find him in my production. I think it was the fan that came up with the story “you guys are good together, you guys are compatible and so on” But there is nothing between us we are just friends.”
Currently, the actress is pregnant and this must have propelled her lover to make up his mind for a marriage.
Already, they have had an introduction before family members and everything to make their wedding a success have been put in place.
