Many would have thought that the death of the mother of Fuji singer, Salawa Abeni, would help rekindle the once love that existed between the singer and her Fuji husband, Kollington Ayinla, but there seems to be no way out for that.

According to Kollington, he had already played his role as a husband to her and father to his children by going to console her on her mother's demise but his presence at the wedding was not compulsory because his children were there to represent him.

The singer stated that he and Salawa are both old and does not have to come to his house to cook before people get to know that they are still in love.

The fuji singer said, “When Salawa Abeni's mother died, I went to her house to visit her and I played my role as a father to my children and as a husband to Salawa Abeni. I comforted her like any husband would do. It is true that I was not at the burial ceremony of her mother. It was not compulsory for me to be at the burial. As long as my children were there, it means I was also there. They represented me.

“We are both old and our children are grown. She does not have to live with me before people recognise that she is still my wife. She does not need to come to my house to perform the role of a wife because I have a cook and another wife that lives with me,” he told Punch.
