Whatever may be the outcome of the DNA test to be conducted on her daughter, Nollywood actress, Ronke Odusanya will still be in the news for some time. The social media platforms may be her new location where she will be tackling critics and settling scores with her detractors. Last month, a Magistrates Court in Lagos State had ordered that a DNA test be conducted on her daughter, following a bitter separation from her estranged lover, Olanrewaju Saheed.
Magistrate M.O. Tanimola gave the order when the case was brought before her at Court 8, Samuel Ilori Court House, Ogba, Ikeja magisterial district, Lagos.
The actress and her estranged lover, Olanrewaju Saheed, popularly known as Jago had their daughter, Fifehanmi in 2019.
It was reported that Saheed, through his lawyer, requested the court to order a DNA test to ascertain the paternity of the child, on the grounds of suspicion of infidelity.
The actress and her lawyer reportedly agreed to the request on the condition that the DNA fees and other bills be footed by Saheed.
In her ruling, Tanimola opted for an undisclosed hospital on Lagos Island for the test to be carried out, and for the results to be sent directly to the court.
She adjourned the case till March 31, for further hearing.
This is not the first time the actress would be enmeshed in marriage related controversies. In 2014, she made the headlines when she was reported to have had a secret wedding to a US based married man, Femi Anibaba. In fact, Anibaba’s estranged wife, Folape Sokoya took her battle to the social media, describing Odusanya as a husband snatcher. Earlier, there were speculations that she was engaged to the Fuji star, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma. But the current paternity mess seems to be the most devastating for the busty actress.
Reports of the ugly incident first appeared online in December 2020 and it festered till it blew open in the Court.
It was rumoured that the actress bankrupted Saheed by making him sell off his assets to keep up with her luxurious lifestyles
But the Yoruba actress said the rumours were irritating and bereft of facts. In her words: “bank statements can reveal who has been receiving money from who and for what …”
“While my silence will be taken for cowardice, I will be calm because the truth always reveals itself. I can defend myself but I won’t want my daughter to grow up reading such irritating and fact-less information. The court of social media has always been myopic and manipulative.
Referring to her estranged lover, She said ” Remember you did not make me, you cannot break me…”
