In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, late actress Aisha Abimbola's husband, Ibrahim Okunola said that contrary to reports making rounds, he was still legally married to the deceased till her demise.

Okunola said, “It is a lie that we had divorced. We had not lived together for about seven years but we were still legally married till she died. The reason we were separated is a family issue. 

"I would miss her till I die because she was a virtuous mother and a go-getter. I gave her the nickname, Magic Aisha because she had a way of achieving her dreams and goals.

"She was someone that would give you her shoulder to lean on and her listening ears no matter what you are going through. Even when she was not in my house again, if I had any issue in life, I always called her.”

Also a thespian like his wife, Okunola said that it was his late wife’s wish not to alert the public about her battle with cancer. 

He said that his hands were tied as he had to respect her wish.
