Comedian Seyi Law says he never separated from his wife and that he was only joking.
Around 12.30am on Sunday, Seyi Law posted on his Instagram that he had separated from his wife due to irreconcilable differences. He wrote: “Due to irreconcilable differences would have been enough to announce this, but the kind and beautiful heart of my ex-wife must be stated. She is one of the best women I have ever known. It is however sad, that I announce that my wife and I have decided to path ways for good. We will appreciate your love and support at this time. God bless you. Tiwaloluwa is safe and good.”
The story went viral on social media with thousands making comments, wondering why he should do that.
But the unserious Seyi Law posted on his Instagram page this morning that he was only joking and that his relationship with his wife was still intact.
“Human beings love bad news ‘sha’. I have been promoting my shows since, very few talks. ‘Abegi,’ I ‘dey’ UK for media rounds. My wife and I are intact. Kai, people can’t even read between the lines. I said PATH WAY not part way. My Ex-wife, ‘abeg’ which one.
“Please, help me spread this one like the fake news. I need to sell tickets. I am sorry the joke is too expensive,” he posted.
He took to his Instagram page again to apologise to his wife for the embarrassment.
“I need to apologise to my wife who found the joke highly embarrassing and way out of line. Thanks for bearing my excesses. You are beautiful, kind and definitely the best of your type.
“God bless you abundantly. I appreciate you always. May God never give us a reason to part ways, but PATH many ways for the future generations to tread.serious,” he said.
