Sultry Yoruba Actress, Biodun Okeowo known as Omo Butty, has recently been receiving trolls from fans about her body.
Biodun stated that she does not care about how people perceive her
neither does she care about other people but what matters most is the
ability for everyone to live for themselves.
“I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you all. To
be yourself in a world that is currently trying to make you something
else is the greatest accomplishment. I am happy being myself, so you be
yourself,” she said.
Read the official press statement from Yomi Fabiyi’s publicist.
Our attention has been drawn to the the story of Toyin Aimakhu and Yomi Fabiyi
ongoing relationship and we understand it has received some media focus

single because his wife resides in the UK and they see often in Africa
or UK). That is not a good reason for any to deduce this fallacy. He
will rather set a divorce in motion or finalize it if need be before
starting a new affair that may be known to the public. Madam Aimakhu and
Mr Yomi Fabiyi are colleagues and have close working relationship.
