Popular actor, Solomon Akiyesi who has suffered bad press after it was rumoured three years ago that he abandoned his 8-month pregnant wife, Lilian Akiyesi, in Port Harcourt and came to Lagos, to marry his mistress, Uloma Agwu, can still hold his head high.
The embattled actor, during the week went down memory lane, blasting those who were behind the hateful news that almost ruined his career.
Akiyesi took to his Facebook page to blast his haters. He writes: “How could I have forgotten the anniversary of 13th of February when on that day, three years ago, I was accused of abandoning my “pregnant” wife in Port Harcourt to marry my “mistress” in Lagos. It was a day hell was let loose and the world fell at my feet in vituperation.
It was a day the gates of hell was opened wide and I saw tender birds in my life become roaring lions as they bared their fangs, oiled and fine-tuned by the likes of Linda Ikeji and her fellow travellers on the way to perdition.
13th February 2013, was a day when the opportunity came for dogs who have been yearning to bite my flesh, to grab all they could off me… And exploiting their uniformed profession, they took it all from me. Home, wife, daughter and all.
And then, in their warped reasoning that wearing a pair of smelling khaki uniform means you have the power of life and death, they made attempt at my dignity. But that was where God stepped in to scream: “Touch not my anointed!” And then they have remained disillusioned confused, mesmerised, weak in the knees and brain ever.”
