According to unconfirmed reports, popular actor Saheed Balogun has dragged his ex-wife actress Fathia Balogun to court over the use of his name, Balogun, insisting that she drops it. The two were married for many years before ending their union, which produced three children, a few years ago.
Saheed has been trying for years to get Fathia to revert to her maiden name but Fathia has always insisted she made a career using the name and has no plans to ever drop it.
“My name is Fathia Balogun and it’s going to remain Balogun for life. Nobody can ever change that or stop me from answering that name” She said in an interview in 2011.
Well, now Saheed has reportedly gone to court to get her to drop the name. Can the courts really force her to drop her ex-husband’s name? And why is Saheed so insistent on this, how does it affect him?
