What is really going on in the young marriage of record label owner, Ubi Franklin and actress, Lilian Esoro, is the million-dollar question on the lips of many.
While the two dramatis personae in the eye of the storm may want everybody to believe that all is well, it is apparent that all is no longer at ease.
The estranged husband and wife were both guests at comedian, Ali Baba’s January 1st Show, and they kept their distance from each other. Sunday Scoop spotted Ubi sitting with other guests at the VIP section looking forlorn, while Lilian obviously had the time of her life with friends at the same VIP section. Full of smiles, she took pictures with Tiwa Savage, Annie Idibia and other guests which she splattered on her Instagram page.
It will be recalled that their union had been rocky from the very start. It is believed that Lilian initially did not want to marry Ubi, and she had indeed turned down his marriage proposal at first, before she was pressured to accept. She had even deleted her account on Instagram and went on hibernation before friends in the industry prevailed on her to accept Ubi, advising her that love usually grows when given a chance. This was amidst unconfirmed rumours that Lilian’s heart was with a popular married comedian who she loved deeply. According to whispers circulating in the entertainment industry, Lilian is still in love with this comedian who is one of the most prominent in the business at the moment. Even though he is married, Lilian is said to be allegedly content being his side-fiddle than being the First Lady in Ubi’s life.
However, with the arrival of their son, Jayden in July 2016, many felt the couple had come to terms with their marriage and were ready to continue living as man and wife. But this was not to be.
According to Sunday Scoop’s sources, Ubi is still interested in the marriage and he believes his wife will come around, but Lilian practically sees herself as ‘single and loving life.’
With recent developments, it is apparent that a chance of reconciliation between the duo is growing dimmer by the moment.
