The mother of one had earlier announced that her union to Soji was over during an interactive session with fans on Thursday.

But in a follow-up post via her Instagram story on Friday, the entrepreneur said her earlier comment was a “joke”.

Blessing also said her initial post was informed by a “series of incessant, and insensitive inquiries about my marriage”.

The brand influencer said she is “still happily married to Soji,” adding that she would not be discussing her personal issues online henceforth after her latest experience.

“Those who know me, know that I can be quite playful, and one of the ways I like to connect with my community of followers is through my Instagram stories; a space purposefully curated to be light hearted, serving as a virtual extension of my jovial personality,” she wrote.

“Now I generally refrain from discussing my personal life within this space; however, after a series of incessant, and borderline insensitive inquiries about my marriage, I responded in the best way I knew I could-through humour – and retorted with sarcasm.

“But given how fast, far and wide the appearance of bad news can spread, I have realised the need to be more cautious in my public interactions.

“On that note, Soji and I are still happily married and I will not be discussing this issue any further. And now that that’s out of the way….”

The pair tied the knot in July 2018 and welcomed their only child in April 2019.
