Mabel Makun, the entrepreneur, has confirmed the end of her marriage with AY Makun, the comedian. 


Mabel and AY tied the knot in 2008. Their union is blessed with two children.

Earlier in the year, reports spread that AY and Mabel had separated. They unfollowed each other on Instagram, intensifying the controversy. This was after Mabel alleged a threat to her life.

On Sunday, AY Makun revealed that his 20-year-old friendship and marriage are “slipping off” his hands.


But in a recent Instagram post, Mabel confirmed her split from AY, who she referred to as “my ex-husband”, saying “It’s unexpected for things to end this way”.

She revealed that “my dream of a lifelong marriage has taken a different direction now” but she will continue to move forward.

Mabel pleaded for privacy and respect for her family “because of our children’s mental health and general well-being”.


She also dismissed the reports being circulated about her on social media.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude for the supportive messages that I have received from everyone,” she wrote.

“However, my silence should not be misunderstood and also the father of my children whom I have been with for some years deserves a certain level respect and privacy from me and all the concerned parties. Most importantly because of our children whose mental health and general well-being should be prioritized.

“Many lies have been peddled against me and attack orchestrated on the social media space but I will honour my kids with my silence and not address any of these lies.


“Although my dreams of a lifelong marriage has taken a different direction now, I’m committed to moving forward with grace and resilience. I have faith in a brighter future for both myself and the children. Despite the rumors or opinions, I find comfort in the belief that all will be well.

“While it’s unexpected for things to end this way, I quietly ask for guidance from my faith as I step into this new chapter of life. Also as we navigate this change, I ask for your help in creating an atmosphere of respect and understanding. This is a challenging period, and I ask for privacy and consideration as we (my ex-husband and I) find our own path forward.”
