Popular comedian , Seyi Law , recently uploaded a sarcastic statement that insinuated he and his wife had gone their separate ways .
But a telephone interview with Saturday Beats , the celebrity said after the prank , ladies , about 50 of them , did not wait for the dust to settle before wooing him with text messages .
His message on Instagram had read,
“ Due to irreconcilable differences would have been enough to announce this , but the kind and beautiful heart of my ex – wife must be stated. She is one of the best women I have ever known .
It is however sad , that I announce that my wife and I have decided to part ways for good .
We will appreciate your love and support at this time . God bless you . Tiwaloluwa is safe and good . ”
This post literally set the social media on fire with fans curious to know the reason behind the development .
Seyi Law , however , told one of our correspondents that he was on the plane when the inspiration to play the prank came to him .
“ I was going to the UK to visit my wife and promote my show as well. While I was on the plane , I just had that weird idea .
I was curious about what people ’ s reaction would be if they heard that Seyi Law was no longer married .
I knew that if I was going to test it , I had to be sarcastic and witty about it .
“ That was why I put some words in a way that people would not pay attention to (what I was doing ) . Apparently, they didn’ t pay attention to the details ; I tried to play with words in that post.
Interestingly , the incident showed me that people love and appreciate my family; I also learnt that bad news travels faster (than good news ) .
“ I thank God for a good and understanding wife ; I didn’ t take permission from her before playing that prank .
When she saw it , she couldn ’ t reach me because I was still on the plane . People had been calling her repeatedly .
Also , when I landed , my phone rang repeatedly . I called her to explain things to her immediately we saw each other .
“ She said I should have carried her along because she didn’ t know what to tell people when they called her .
My wife is my number one critic ; that is the beautiful thing about my marriage , ” he said .
He further stated that his social media page had a lot of traffic after the prank .
“ I had over 80 , 000 hits on my Instagram page that day; my followers grew by over 3 , 000 within 24 hours.
I had over 50 ladies hitting on me with direct messages ; that’ s to tell you how mad the world can be. I don’ t want to talk about what the ladies were saying for now , ” he said .
