Bimbo was married to Yomi Folawiyo for five years before dumping the union.
According to her, Yomi who is also the Chief Operating Officer of Folawiyo Group, didn’t enrich her in anyway.
She said in an interview with City People magazine, ”Lots of people say that I got married to him because of the money. I don’t understand why people will think like that. I am also from a very rich family. Money is not a problem in the family I come from. All that I achieved today is as a result of my father’s efforts, my mother and my uncle, Buruji Kashamu, all assisted me in business. Yomi can never say that he had assisted me in business. It is whatever he brings home that we manage, as his wife. It is not like he has a company or his own personal house. He works in his father, company. It is not like I have access to anything directly from him. It is not like I can walk into their company and say that I want this.”
