London Based Journalist, Yetunde Oduwole’s many ordeals

I’m only writing this, because she wants many women to learn from her experience in life. You will read the story below yourself. In a quick brief, Yetunde just got engaged to Yoruba comic actor, Baba Tee only this last Saturday. Now read what she has to say….
Whatever you do, always put God first! Don't ever fight any battle yourself because you will not win! The battle is the Lord’s and He is the only one that can fight the good fight! That is why I am not moved when lies are written about me and told about my person.
Because I know my God always vindicates me, He puts me above my enemies. I marvel at how faithful God is to me. I got a surprise I must share with everyone. It is to teach you not to fight your battles yourself. Please click to read more and see another pic of her
You all know my story that I have been separated from the man I married in 1998. You should also know the various lies he has told about me. Thank God I became wise early enough to have left it all to God.
For 7 years, I have been a struggling woman, a mother of two who fends for herself and her kids all alone without a man to help out. For the 7 years, I didn’t get a divorce even though he divorced me without me knowing so he could marry another woman.
I still bear his name in all my documents and even my passport. I only got divorced 3 months ago despite the pressure of many years and even as am speaking my documents and even my passport are still in his name cos am a bit slow at doing things.
My ex husband, who had waged war against me, ran his mouth endlessly, ran away from his responsibilities and divorced me without me knowing, just to be with another woman, came begging for forgiveness!
He actually commended me for being a strong woman who has been there for her kids.
Dear friends, I was weeping! not because he begged, but because God has fought the battle for me! Even if it tarries, God’s words will surely come to pass!
This is a big lesson for all! Another thing is, whatever makes u happy, do it! Life is too short. I have lost loads of young people to death and that has taught me to embrace what gives me joy.
I don't want to die an unhappy woman. That is why I don't really bother my brain about way people say about me. I am a gold fish! It will be boring if I hear only good things said about me!
I have been called a lesbian just because they haven’t been able to point out who I am dating, but please raise your hand up out there if you are my lesbian lover, tell the world!
I have been called a whore, if I have slept with a legion of men out there, I demand that you all raise your hands! I know deep down me that I am as decent as they come.
I even heard they said I had an abortion for someone recently. LOL, isn’t that legal in the UK? And it is even free! I just might be saving the planet for sustainability! And, I am an adult! Cant help laughing! Is that news? I am entitled to my happiness.
No one was there for me in my loneliest days, my weeping nights, when I had to go hungry and when I single handedly catered for my kids.
Now that God has sent a person that sees beyond my faults and is ready to go the long haul for me, and doesn't care about my past or whatever damage people cause, tongues are wagging!
The world is sad if you have a little happiness, how terrible! If you are the one who says her ex husband wont allow her remarry, he will destroy her with the pen…time to shut up!!!!!
He has sworn to support whoever would make me happy and he is deeply sorry for all he has done. Who am I not to obey God? He has told me to forgive, and that I must do so I can be forgiven myself.
He has given me victory over my enemies. That’s what matters to me. I don't care about anybody’s opposite feelings, God approves my happiness, not humans.
So, dear ex husband, thanks for swallowing your pride of many years and obeying God. It hurts, but I forgive u. I am glad u know Yetunde has been and will always be a good wife.
I wish u d best in life just like u wish me. Thank u Jesus for making me live to say this testimony.

  1. I feel very sorry for her. Thank God she was bold enough to turn him down. Men who think they are God. If she wasn’t doing well, her ex husband wouldn’t have remembered she is alive. I hope she finds love with the actor.

  2. Baba T looks like a gold digger to me. He might just want to use her as a climbing stone or just for his friends to say he is also married to a London based lady.

  4. OK now those of us who have no idea who she is and all that's happened to her now know and can even begin to wonder...

    I just don't think cos she has now found a 'soul mate' is a good reason to start tripping about enemies and sh*t (I don't wish them evil or anything, i just think it's too early to gloat and wave your new found security in anybody's face, anything can happen afterall we are all human beings). #imho.

    Ti isu e ni bajina a ma....

  5. the media including bloggers (I'm also referring to you ladun and linda and the rest)
    theres no need harping on her age,i know of a marriage like this and the way they have been able to work it out is not to celebrate birthdays and even if they have to no cakes with candles and that sort of thing.love transcends age or looks e.t.c
    what if baba tee gets a passport and money out of it?the most important is that they are both happy and getting something out of the relationship

  10. In life just do all dt pleases you nd do not think about what anyone says because in the end its just you and yourself to face life. Do not judge anyone unless you have walked in the same shoe as them. She is a surviver of whateva she may have been through, but what can you say about your case? Some of you come here and judge her nd call Baba tee a gold-digger bt u r in equally sickening marriages/relationships or even lonely like a stray animal. Ur life is what you make of it. You can spend your life in regrets or trurn your story around or sit down nd talk about ppeople making positive changes while you be a waste to society!

  13. I hope she is not relying on this new man for her happiness. Her story is nearly identical to my mum's. She remarried after about 8years of separation and the marriage lasted about 16yrs but scattered when her career took off. Now she's single again @ 54yrs but immensely happy with her career and children. Men are just are largely a useless lot. Never bank on them jare!
