Nollywood actor, Lateef Adedimeji, has opened up on his relationship with his colleague, Bimpe Oyebade, a.k.a. Mo Bimpe, as they prepare to tie the knot in December.
Speaking in an interview, Adedimeji said he and Bimpe kicked off their relationship early this year, contrary to people’s opinion that they have been together for a while.
He explained that their love story began in March 2021 and before that, he and Mo Bimpe wee just close friends due to their job which made them grow fond of each other.
“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,” Adedimeji told the Tribune.
“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.”
Adedimeji stated that he never planned on dating Mo Bimpe from the start.
He said: “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.”
