Nollywood actor, Damola Olatunji and Bukola Arugba’s marriage in crisis



Nollywood actor, Damola Olatunji and Bukola Arugba’s marriage in crisis

These are troubled times in the marriage of actors, Damola Olatunji and Bukola Awoyemi, also known as Bukola Arugba, ENigeria Newspaper reports.

The controversial actors (Damola Olatunji and Bukola Awoyemi), who met and married after they both acted love roles in Tunde Kelani’s film ARUGBA a few years ago, are reported to be going through financial difficulties, which has resulted in current turbulence in their marriage.

According to the ENigeria Newspaper sources close to the couple, they attributed the couple’s marital crisis on Damola Olatunji, who is reported to have purposely refused to work in order to support his family.

Damola is said to have abandoned his financial obligations to his wife, Bukola Awoyemi (Bukola Arugba), who is now reportedly tired by the circumstance and considering quitting the marriage on the advice of her friends and family members, ENigeria Newspaper reports.

According to this newspaper sources, several of the couple’s relatives have attempted to mediate a reconciliation, but their efforts have achieved little or no results.


One of the purported reasons for the actor’s financial inability is that good movie roles have not been coming his way like they used to.

His excuse would have sufficed if it weren’t for his wife’s friends, who are said to have advised her to leave the marriage and move on with her life before she is drained, but the mother of two, who appears to have found solace in God, has reportedly insisted on staying until things appear to be deteriorating recently.

According to information obtained by ENigeria Newspaper, a big issue for Bukola is the fact that their marriage began on a contentious note, with Damola Olatunji calling it quits with his first wife, Raliat, who is currently located in the United Kingdom.

She was accused of ‘snatching’ the handsome actor from his then-wife, a development that angered many critics and pundits.


Both Damola Olatunji and Bukola Olatunji married in 2013, and their marriage was troubled until the actor met Bukola, who was rumored to be a virgin at the time, and she became pregnant shortly after, giving birth to their first set of twins, a boy and a girl.

The couple obviously requires divine intervention; otherwise, their marriage will follow in the footsteps of countless of their colleagues in Nollywood.
