Ayo Makun and Mabel Makun

By Oluwapelumi Oluwayemi

Mabel, AY Makun’s estranged wife, has taken to Instagram to address what she described as the various falsehoods circulating about her and the comedian over their separation on social media.

Recall that AY had recently written about how his marriage of 20 years is slipping off his hand, with Mabel responding saying that distance is her new response to disrespect.

After their posts, news began to spread online about the cause of their marital issues, but Mabel has tagged the news as lies.

In the post she made, Mabel referred to AY as ex-husband and the father of her children.

Mabel said though her dream of a long-life marriage has taken a different direction, she is committed to moving forward with grace and resilience.

Mabel asked those spreading false narratives about her and AY, to be considerate and give them the privacy they want.

She wrote;

‘I want to express my sincere gratitude for the supportive messages that I have received from everyone.

However, my silence should not be misunderstood and also the father of my children whom I have been with for some years deserves a certain level of respect and privacy from me and all the concerned parties. Most importantly because of our children whose mental health and general well-being should be prioritized.

Many lies have been peddled against me and attack orchestrated on the social media space but I will honour my kids with my silence and not address any of these lies.

Although my dreams of a lifelong marriage have taken a different direction now, I’m committed to moving forward with grace and resilience. I have faith in a brighter future for both myself and the children. Despite the rumors or opinions, I find comfort in the belief that all will be well.

While it’s unexpected for things to end this way, I quietly ask for guidance from my faith as I step into this new chapter of life. Also as we navigate this change, I ask for your help in creating an atmosphere of respect and understanding. This is a challenging period, and I ask for privacy and consideration as we (my ex-husband and I) find our path forward.

I wish him the very best in his journey as well.

God bless us all,
