Mide, the daughter of Funmi Martins who is no longer with us, was the wife of the famous movie producer and actor, Afeez Owo, for a long time. Over time, she also began to work in the Yoruba film industry. Unfortunately, their union did not end up becoming a story of eternal love.
Here are a few things you should know about Mide Martins’ crashed marriage.
How did this relationship begin?
In the beginning, the union seemed ideal. The partners tried to develop relationships and turn them into something serious. Owo was always there whenever Mide needed him, and she felt she had found a reliable man who could support her in any situation.
Before the death of Mide Martins’ mother, Owo served as Mide’s manager. First, they became good friends, and then grew feelings for eachother. They spent their free time and work time together; it became evident then that a wedding was just around the corner.
Why did they break up?
According to the stories going around, their relationship ended because of Mide Martins’ infidelity. Owo suspected that she was lying to him and carefully observed her every move; when the actor asked provocative questions, Mide answered insecurely and made her husband suspect the worst.
The problems in their relationship accumulated for several months, however, the public only learned about them when the couple started living in separate homes. When rumors of their breakup first started making rounds, Mide debunked them and assured everyone everything was fine in her marriage.

As we now see, these were the first cracks of the future split. The conflict became evident when Mide did not put up any messages concerning her husband’s birthday on any of the social networks, although other celebrities in show business did.
It later became known that she had traveled to South Africa with the husband of one of her friends, who is said to be a magnate in real estate. There was even a rumor that she had slept her way into achieving the signing of a profitable deal that was suddenly concluded after her return to Nigeria. The person she slept with admitted it and rumors crawled to her husband.
The actress’ husband decided that he could no longer live in lie and deceit, and parted ways with his wife. Friends and relatives assured him that her adultery is not true and he should not act abruptly, but he still went his own way.
The scandal went so far that in April 2016 Mide was hospitalized after suffering a heart attack. However, malicious gossip has it that she pretended to be ill to win back her husband.
Although this union may have been rocky sometimes, it also had its positive and happy aspects, like the two charming daughters and nice memories the lovers once shared. Now they both live a new life; Owo publicly shows off the new woman in his life and Mide has custody of the children.
