Cute Abiola, the Nigerian skit maker, has addressed a rumour alleging he had an affair with Biodun Okeowo, the actress fondly called Omoborty.
Last year, a blogger claimed the comedian was having a romantic affair with Okeowo.
The blogger also claimed Cute Abiola’s relationship with Omoborty was beginning to affect his marriage.
But addressing the claim in an interview with actress Debbie Shokoya, Abiola said they only made a skit together.
“We never had a date. Maybe because we just made content together. So, that content, the way we took pictures. I was holding her, holding her back, and her waist for the picture,” he said.
“The chat was not real. Her picture was not in the chat. The name was covered. For what? I did not know how that came up. That time, she felt so bad about it. I felt so bad too. Because I never wanted her to go through that stuff. And that time, she was so pained to the point that we stopped talking to each other. We have started talking now.
“The thing is that that never happened. I never dated her. We were just like she was my sister, and I was her brother. I even give her influencing jobs, saying, ‘Ma, can you do this, someone wants to work with you. And the same as me. Nothing like that’.
“When I saw it, I was surprised. The thing is that when the blog posted it, she said ‘what is this happening’? I was like, even me, I do not know.
“The more I talk, the more I put more fire. When they are dragging you, when you talk, then you do not want the matter to end. It is going to keep trending.”
Omoborty had earlier in the year debunked the allegations.
