On her Instagram story section on Wednesday, Ladipo wrote:

“Do you want to know one thing I’m so happy I didn’t rush to do when I was married? Changing my name.

“How could I spend over 20 years building the ‘Shade Ladipo’ brand, only to change it overnight to another name?

“Some people see my father and say, ‘Oh, you’re Shade Ladipo’s father.’

“Sis, you’ve worked too hard to build your brand. Don’t be too quick to change it, especially on legal documents. Take your time; there’s no hurry, I promise you!”
