Sunday Orisaguna, the live-in lover of Olajumoke Orisaguna, says things have taken a downward turn for his family.
“Sujimoto has been of tremendous help to us, though he couldn’t help me as he promised. I appreciate that it was him God used to put a roof over our heads,” he said.
“Every time I attempt to get a job, I get scorned because they keep seeing the mother of my children as a superstar. Even recently, I asked someone to help me process a vehicle to own on hire purchase so that I can be driving it for commercial purpose.
“I can work even at car-wash outlets, as long as the job is legitimate, I don’t mind. That’s how bad things are.”
Olajumoke, former bread hawker who is also referred to as Nigeria’s Cinderella, became popular in 2016 when she accidentally ran into a photoshoot of Tinie Tempah, a British rapper.
After that incident, she was made the cover girl of ThisDay Style alongside Tempah and landed endorsement deals with brands including Payporte and Sujimoto, who offered her family a rent-free apartment for five years, plus other incentives.
Although they live together and have two children, the lovers are not married; a situation that Sunday blames Olajumoke for.
“My parents had sent words to her mother for about three years now that it was time to formalise our union but Olajumoke has continued to turn down the proposal while insisting that the time isn’t right yet. So, marriage or no marriage is up to her.
“I think she was better when she was with Azuka because Azuka and TY Bello have great connections that paid Olajumoke more.
“I just know her manager calls her, they go out and return late. Sometimes she returns as late as past 12am and without explanations. She doesn’t even tell me where they go and what happens.
“To be honest with you, I’ve had to be tolerating her rudeness. She talks to me recklessly and I get very upset. I know her attitude to me is this reckless because I’m not rich or have a robust means of income.”
Olajumoke: I trust God
Despite her dormant YouTube vlog and cancelled Africa Magic show, the 30-year-old model said she believes that God will provide.
“The world expects more from me. That’s why I want to own my house before the expiration of the five-year rent which Sujimoto paid on my apartment at Surulere, Lagos.
“It’s a tastefully furnished apartment and it was Azuka who spoke to her friend, Sujimoto, who later got us the place. She was also the one who spoke to the Payporte CEO who gave me one year contract.
“God will provide. I trust Him, He never fails me.”
