Chief Femi Fani Kayode has given reasons why he will no longer engage his estranged wife Precious Chikwendu on social media.
The former Aviation Minister whose video went viral yesterday where he was abusing the mother of his four boys said his hands were forced.
He disclosed that his estranged wife should behave like an adult and use the proper medium to relay her message and think of the future of their kids.
FFK revealed that he has kept quiet all through her madness for the last 7 years because his ‘private relationship & any disagreements therein are just that: PRIVATE & I have learned my lesson on feeding into parasocial media culture’.
He wrote, “I have chosen to take the high horse and I refuse to allow my estranged wife to turn the affairs of my personal life into a public circus. If she has any issues let her use the right medium as a responsible adult and mother and stop secretly feeding the media with damaging scandals geared towards the destruction of our children’s future.
I have kept quiet in order to protect my children, I have covered all her madness over the past 7 years & not once did I expose her. But the facts are there & the witnesses & evidence are readily available for the courts. I broke my silence yesterday only because my hand has been forced. Rather than focusing on the problem of brutality & evil plaguing our country, or the myriad of other issues holding citizens hostage, some people would prefer to spread and partake in what amounts to celebrity gossip & chopped videos.
Who in Nigeria does this benefit? What is the use?”
“Those involved in this smear campaign are begging for further responses which I will not give them. My private relationship & any disagreements therein are just that: PRIVATE & I have learned my lesson on feeding into parasocial media culture.
My children & their dignity comes first & I refuse to help these individuals tarnish their image any further. The ringleader of this media scandal and his/her collaborators may continue polluting news sites & blogs with spam & begging for crumbs of attention with wild tales as long as they wish.
Acting is a professional field all on its own but thankfully so is the law. Any & all videos, testimonies, documentation &other evidence coming from my end will only be displayed in court, where these issues can be resolved once and for all. If this person speaks the truth, they will be happy to meet me there, instead of peddling stories. My next tweets and posts will be focused solely on relevant issues. Thank you.”
