Wife of Yorba Nollywood star, Saheed Balogh, Fathia Williams (formerly Balogun), have deleted all her pictures on Instagram and removed ‘Balogun’ from her name which came as a surprise to her fans.
Many adduced her action to her ex-husband, Saidi Balogun’s insistence that she should stop bearing his name.
When Sunday Scoop got in touch with her, Fathia said, “Speak with my manager, he will tell you all you need to know.”
In an interview, her manager, Tega, said, “She is rebranding and that is why she removed Balogun from her name and left it as Fathia Williams. That’s why she also deleted all her pictures on Instagram. By next week, she would release new pictures. This has nothing to do with her ex-husband, Saidi Balogun. Fathia actually won the case in court concerning the use of name. Changing her name is a personal decision.”
On what her ‘rebranding’ entails, Tega said, “She has been featuring in English movies for a while; so, it is not a new thing for her. She would still be acting in Yoruba movies but she would appear in English movies more. Very soon, she will also be holding an audition for her forthcoming English movie. Rebranding is just her way of coming out anew. Brands and companies rebrand all the time; so, it is nothing unusual.”
