Lagos socialite, Farida Sobowale, has said she attempted suicide because of her husband betrayal.
Lamenting in a now-trending video she recorded, she said her ex-husband promised to make her a mother in life but reneged on his promises and deceived her.
Speaking in Youruba, Sobowale said: “Mo wo pe kin na owo kin na ara lori ife ti mo rope moti ri ife. Ife ati eyan to jepe mo n fe to ni moma di olomo laye. Oun ma je kin di olomo laye; oun ma duro ti mi. O ti leri orisisi to so gbogbo e fun mi. Ko n se boya ode nimi abi owo yen po lowo mi abi mio mo nkan ti mo n se. Mio kin se omode.
“Gbogbo eyin abiyamo aye, eyin sisters mi, eyin egbon mi, eyin fans mi, mo fe ke da ri ji mi lori nkan to sele Laarin ex- okomi…..” — Which translates to;
“I spent a lot of money thinking I’ve found love; a lover that promised me that I’ll have my own children in life. He promised to be with me amongst other promises. It’s not that I’m stupid or have too much money nor am I a child.”
Pleading with her fans, followers and family for how she reacted to the turn of events, she said: “I’m calling my sisters, elders, younger ones and followers to forgive what transpired between me and my ex-husband.”
She further stated that she has moved on and has left the situation to God.
Farida Sobowale, attempted suicide by trying to jump into a lagoon on Third Mainland bridge on Thursday night.
This comes amid rumours that her two-month-old luxurious marriage crashed.
