According to the grapevine and rumour mill, the marriage of popular Nigerian comic, AY Makun has hit the rocks.
News reports from several online media platforms suggests that the 6-year marriage of AY and his wife, Mabel is facing major challenges.
Popular blogger, SDK reported earlier on Tuesday, that Mabel may have packed out of the couple’s residence.
The report further stated that comic/actor is currently out of the country.
Shortly after, the man in the eye of the storm, AY took to Instagram to comment on the reports of his marriage taking a turn for the worse.
While not denying the reports, AY simply took a swipe at bloggers, whom he says are ‘bringers of bad news’.
“Some blogs are, for the most part, the bringers of bad news… and it’s not entirely the bloggers fault, bad news gets higher ratings, travels faster and sells more than good news.”
“The reality is that you will continue to hear negative information from many sources against anything that showcases your blessings and pride.”
“Gossip is just a tool to distract people who have nothing better to do from feeling jealous of those few who are still remaining in the institution called ‘Celebrity Marriage’. It lies in our will to decide whether to discard them into the waste bin or record them into our brains!. The question is… whose report will you believe?”
Meanwhile, a friend of the couple- popular On-Air-Personality, Daddy Freeze has weighed-in on the matter, while advising AY and Mabel to stay together and surmount their marital challenges.
“I sincerely hope and pray that what I am hearing is false. You guys are my favorite couple. AY is my brother and Mabel is my sister. I remember being angry with Mabel for eating my bush meat once and she made it up by cooking the most delicious owo soup with starch for me and as for AY he is one of my best friends in the industry.”
“He is a brother in every way. He is kind hearted, loving, caring, intelligent and well mannered. You guys are not good together, you are GREAT together in fact FABULOUS TOGETHER and you both know it. THE DEVIL KNOW THIS FACT AND WOULD WORK HARD TO BRING DISHARMONY.”
“Please don’t give him the chance. Mabel the keys to your home are in your hand and I am sure of your love for this genius. I also know AY loves you. Gisting less than 3 weeks ago he told me he loves you 120% and I teased him endlessly over this, calling him Mr Loverman in Shabbas voice. I love you guys and know we will smile at the end of this alleged storm.”
Ayo and Mabel Maku have two children together.
