Timi Dakolo talks about explaining wife Busola’s ordeal to kids




Singer Timi Dakolo was a guest on the most recent episode of Toke Makinwa’s Toke Moments show.

One of the topics of discussion was “supporting” your partner and his journey with his wife, Busola Dakolo. He spoke about informing their kids about his wife’s ordeal and legal battle.

Back in 2019, Busola Dakolo had accused head Pastor at the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of raping her years before. The award-winning singer revealed that they had informed their kids about her ordeal when she spoke out about it in June 2019.

Dakolo said,

“Yes, we informed our kids. I think I raised my kids differently. Children love validation. My kids can talk to me and express themselves very well. I had to make them know that their mother is a superhero. I explained that it was a painful experience that happened when their mum was very young. They understood even though they might not know the gravity of what it was. They understood that something was happening. So, anytime they go to her, they give her a hug

“When you tell someone that, ‘I’ve got you’, be true about it. Often times, we associate being a man with muscle, biceps, and strength. The pain that one feels that is not physical is the real pain. When one tells one’s partner, ‘for better, for worse’, most people think it is just ‘for the better’ because one cannot quantify the worse. It does not announce itself. When one says those words, one has to be sure. Don’t say it because everyone is saying it. Many times, she had wanted to tell me certain things but I had waved her off. I had known about the issue and telling me was not easy for her.”

The couple have three kids, Zoe, Alexander and, Hallel Dakolo.
