Nigerian recording artist, dancer, and occasional actress, Nikki Laoye and husband, Alex Oturu have allegedly separated after 6 years of marriage.
The couple haven’t been seen together in public for a while and both have also been spotted without their wedding bands especially in recent pictures.
In verifying, a source made a clear that they are no longer living together as they have been separated for about a year due to possible irreconcilable differences.
Also, the source added that they might have even begun divorce proceedings but have decided to split on amicable terms and remain friends.
Nikki Laoye, who is also well known for her humanitarian work with the physically challenged and Libyan returnees, got married to Alex in a grand ceremony held in Lagos on the 11th of December, 2011.
No official statement has been given by the singer concerning this new development in their lives.
However, Nikki once stated in an interview that things have not been easy with as a wife and a career woman but was very thankful to her husband who dabbles as her manager.
In her words with CityPeople magazine, “We actually go for a lot of events together because he happens to be on my management team, his name is Alex Oturu. We do a lot of things together, he works with me a lot, he is my manager. I have been busy a lot but then I find a way to schedule and then having my husband working with me on so many things has also helped my marriage and also makes it easier.”
The couple doesn’t have any children together.
