Adeoti plans to enter politics. Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe has visited her husband Kazim Adeoti’s community in Oro, Kwara State.
The movie star was accompanied by her husband Adeoti to the community where they were well received.
“Our wife, our property, our cause, our blessing,” the emcee shouted as the actress and her husband made their way to their seats.
During their now controversial interview, Adeoti revealed that he will venture into politics.
“Yes. I want to believe that everyone is a politician – regardless of age, class, religion or whatever – it is our responsibility to be part of politics because it’s about governance. As you all know, democracy is government of the people, by the people and for the people,” he said.
“So we just have to be involved, whether we like it or not, it’s about us. Whether we’re active or inactive, we’re all politicians. I love my community so much. I have some lineage from my father. My father was someone who loved his community so much and who also did so much for his community.”
“I believe in carrying on my father’s dream and legacy – the good works he did. That’s something I’ve done long before. I’ve always been there for my people in my home state of Oro in Kwara.”
Aigbe and Kazim’s marriage first hit the headlines in January 2022.
It is suspected in some circles that Aigbe ended Kazim’s pre-existing marriage.
“My family lives in the U.S. and I commute between Nigeria and the U.S. because my business is here in Nigeria. When people say we broke up, maybe it’s because my family is not here with me in Nigeria. I get along well with my first wife, we are good together,” Kazim said in the interview.
“Although there were problems at the beginning, we are fine now, everything is fine and back to normal. I am a Muslim and I have a right to have more than one wife – now I have two wives. I have two beautiful wives and I’m happy about that.”
Aigbe was previously married to businessman and socialite Lanre Gentry.
The marriage was marred by allegations of domestic violence and infidelity. They separated in 2017.
