Nigerian actor, Lateef Adedimeji has finally confirmed his relationship with colleague, Bimpe Oyebade aka Mo Bimpe.
This comes as the two are set to tie the knot soon.
The actor while speaking to Tribune, noted that contrary to speculations and views of people that they were in a relationship for quite a long time, they just kicked off their love journey early this year, in March precisely.
According to him, before March, he and Bimpe were just close to each other due to their job and with time grew fond of each other.
In his words:
“We started dating this year, March to be precise. Those days when people said we were dating, there was nothing like that. People only speculated because we became really close and did a number of jobs together and we became fond of each other. It was not something that we both saw coming. One day, after a lot of back and forth, we sat down and said to ourselves we could make this work if we put our hearts together and show more commitment and love to each other; then we realized that we could not even do away from each other. So, the journey started and we are here today.”
Lateef Adedimeji who is meant to walk down the aisle with Mo Bimpe come December stated that he never planned on dating her from the start:
“We have been friends for a while and we both understand ourselves pretty well. Like I said, it was not something we both planned; it was just a friendship that we nurtured and paid attention to. We respect each other and what we share and that, for me, is a big attraction, because we are both in the limelight at the moment. So, it is not a function of one attraction; it was a function of different attractions that led us to where we are today. I am happy about this new journey.”
