Fathia Balogun confirms being dragged to court by Saidi Balogun over use of name

There were reports recently that actor Saidi Balogun had dragged his ex- wife actress Fathia Balogun to court over the use of his surname, Balogun, insisting that she drops it. (Read HERE). Saidi denied the report in a statement he sent to the press (Find that HERE).

Fathia is now accusing him of lying to the press, because according to her, he indeed dragged her to court over the use of the name. Below is a statement released by her publicist, Seun Oloketuyi
“Our attention has been drawn to media reports where Saheed Balogun claims that he knows nothing about the media reports that he is in court with our client Fathia Balogun over his decision to ask his former wife to stop using his name.
“We will like to put the records straight. The case is in court and our lawyers are on it to ensure that our client retains the name. We won’t be saying much at this time but we believe that adults should be bold and mature enough to take responsibility for their actions and not do something and say something else.
"We won’t say anything further on this matter until judgement is given as this case resumes hearing.”

U should hav known that by staying in the marriage. Even Khloe self don drop her husband name sharp sharp. Ur face is known everywhere already and u don't need Saidi's name to continue to build ur said career. The guy doesn't want his name associated with u. PERIOD

emjay said...

dear shameful anonymous.....is d name BALOGUN meant for saheed only to bear???u better think before u talk....@list their affair made products and this woman loved him sincerely + if saheed is that good, how come two women has also left him after fathia?? Instead of him to concentrate on his future or probably seek for counselling he is there fighting over one general name.....mtcheew.

Anonymous said...

Fathia pls drop his name now. He cant have two pple bearing Mrs Balogun. I tire for you. For most pple that is the first thing to do. Abi you stil want continue the marriage? You were nt born with the name why nt change the name and let this young man move on with his life.

Talking about name,seriously,i feel for Bonario,ever since Linda mention him as d first beneficiary of d 100K,dia has been thunder,fire and lightening.Linda shouldnt hav mention his name,in d first place,infact all her beneficiaries shul be kept "Anonimous",known only to her crew,to aviod "Media Moob".For Bonario,he deserves it,everybody knows it,yet d just wont accept it.Linda got almost 10,000 comments on d 1.5m promo!...how do u expect her to satisfy everybody,she is not Jesus,Only Jesus can serve d world,not Linda.She is doing her bit,so pls give her a break and leave Bonario alone.......Anonimous say so!

For christ sake, fatia drop his name...set him free,so that he won't be thinking a lady not with him any more still carries his name...

Fatia as a woman can do anything sily and tanishes the guys image, atleast you were not bearing his name, before you got married to him...

Saheed is right...he can have a lesser burden when she still carries his name. Abi would fathia want to say she has not had any silent affair be it sex or a relationship with some other man after the divorce.....Abeg, she just wants to still have his name as the bibe says it will come to a time when women will be begging to bear a mans name and they will be feeding themselves...not bearing his name means she will be naked, understand that kinda feeling...

U just open ur mouth gbosa and tok rubbish without even askin ur brain first. Aw does d name affects Saheed????

@mirian aren't u a lady,u shud knw wat It means to drop a name after been famous with it. Even change of name in skul is somtin else not to talk abt wen a carrier had been built with a name.

Fathia has to give way 4 some else to be d new Mrs balogun. If she likes d name so much y did she leave her matrimonial home. When tina turner divorced mr turner she was also taken to court and she begged not to drop d name cos it was already a brand and she still pays 4 using dat name till dat so fathia should tink about their children b4 spreading her dirty linen outside.

Aunty fathia you are just too stubborn.the issue of your divorse many big personalties spoke with you in a mature way.but you refuse to listen.don't you think it is better you drop his name.once you did not find him appealing anymoree.pls let bro saheed move on with his life with another woman.and you can continue exposing your shapeless body to younger guys.

Fathia got the name “Balogun after she got married to saheed Balogun rite? Now they divorced why is she findind it too hard to drop d so called name and move on, some people like whala sha....fathia u of all people should hav known long ago to drop ur ex husband's name witout being told or being draged to court ...

Thanks @emjay that first comment is really by a shameless faceless fool. Is Balogun for saheed alone. He should go to Balogun market and drag the occupants there to court as well nah. Ode!

Fathia should not leave that name she worked hard for it. No body knew that bleached chicken saheed she made that name popular. She reminds me of Tina turner who gave up every thing material to keep the name she had worked for. Stupid man

U say? She shd drop d name? Balogun is one of the most popular surnames in yoruba land. She can use d name as long as she likes even if saheed tks d mata to court he can't win

Guess d name gives her a little bit of fame and she doesn't wanna drop it. By d way, most of u libers should learn how to address people, especially Linda. Stop d insults. I don't see anything wrong with the man's request. She should drop d name.

Both of them were chanting on each other during their relationship...but fathia is a shameless woman,i remember then if fathia want 2 to check in an hotel with her (who u knw)she will ask if balogun do visit d hotel.desame with balogun (at dsame hotel).

@AnonymousDecember 14, 2013 at 12:42 PM you are the one that is shameless. Men with always wanting to have their way; sore losers! I bet you that when they got married, this Balogun guy was breathing hard down her neck to change her maiden name for his, now that things have gone sore he wants her to back off ASAP as if its that easy. Men don't know the emotional wreck women go through to drop their identity and assume theirs, not to talk of the paper work. Now that they lady has adjusted to using the 'new' name and can boast of some accomplishments, he now wants it changed because of the relationship has gone sore; as if its easy! Men will always want to be in control weather in or outside of a relationship with U. Smh! She shouldn't give in to him. If he actually cared about his kids with her and wanted their matter to be private, he wouldn't have taken the matter to court cos anything in court is now public record and a Public affair. Balogun, have some respect for the mother of ur kids regardless of how evil/bad/unfit you think she is. Its for the sake of ur kids. EOD!

He was the one who gave her his name, so like any other gift, it is hers to keep. A gift is a gift!

I bet this loser is the same type of man who comes back to take any gifts he gave a woman when the relationship runs sour. We all knows his type, show up at your place early in the morning to start an argument so everybody in the community can hear, because they are all still in bed. Men like this should go seek his pleasure with hyenas and jackals, because only the beasts of the wild are fitting to romance him.

Fathia, let him go kick rocks and keep the name. He did not tell you to keep your family name when you marry, I bet he insisted you take his name, and now he wants to take it back. Tell him to go suck on a cobra's head and die. Useless son of a donkey!
