Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji has spoken on his romantic relationship with colleague, Adebimpe Oyebade, better known as ‘Mo Bimpe’.
In an interview with Tribune, the thespian, who is set to marry his fiancée, Mo Bimpe, revealed that they only recently began dating.
According to him, contrary to speculations that he and his colleague have been in a relationship for quite a long time, they were platonic friends and just started dating in March this year.
In his words,
“We started dating this year, March to be precise. Those days when people said we were dating, there was nothing like that. People only speculated because we became really close and did a number of jobs together and we became fond of each other. It was not something that we both saw coming. One day, after a lot of back and forth, we sat down and said to ourselves we could make this work if we put our hearts together and show more commitment and love to each other; then we realized that we could not even do away from each other. So, the journey started and we are here today.”
“We have been friends for a while and we both understand ourselves pretty well. Like I said, it was not something we both planned; it was just a friendship that we nurtured and paid attention to. We respect each other and what we share and that, for me, is a big attraction, because we are both in the limelight at the moment. So, it is not a function of one attraction; it was a function of different attractions that led us to where we are today. I am happy about this new journey.” He added.
