A Facebook user Adjenughure Don Emmanuel on Monday claimed Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo boasted in the past that he met his wife, Busola Dakolo a virgin, querying how years later, the mother of three would accuse Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) Senior Pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her.
Concise News reports that the post has gone viral, garnering over 500 shares as at the time of filing this report.
This online news medium took some time to verify Don Emmanuel’s claim, and here is a summary of our verdict, based on available facts.
Don Emmanuel writes: HOW COME WE ALL FORGET SO SOON? TIMI DAKOLO SOMETIMES AGO BRAGGED THAT HE MET HIS WIFE AS A VIRGIN AND THAT HE WAS THE VERY FIRST MAN TO SEE THE UNDIES OF HIS WIFE…
HOW COME 18 YEARS AGO PASTOR BIODUN RAPED AND DEFLOWERED BUSOLA?
VERDICT: Having dug deep to see the interview (video/text) or social media post where Timi made that statement, we found none.
The couple (Timi and Busola) have been married for six years and Busola did state in that striking interview with Y!Naija that she was involved in relationships before courting and marrying Timi. Hence, the question of her virginity at the time of her meeting Timi is inconsequential.
Therefore, our submission is that there is nowhere Timi Dakolo said that “he was the very first man to see the undies of his wife” Busola as Mr Don Emmanuel claims.
Reverend Fatoyinbo has since stepped aside from his church duties following the allegations, while the issue continues to divide public opinion.
