One of the best kept secrets of the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the identity of the woman who birthed his second child, Seyi Tinubu. Unknown to many who thought Tinubu’s wife, Oluremi, the Senator representing Lagos Central at the national assembly, is Seyi’s mother, the soon-to-be three time law maker is only his step mum.
According to TheLagosTimes, Seyi is the love child of Tinubu and Bunmi Oshonike. Both never tied the knot nor lived together as man and wife. In her hey days, Bunmi was said to be one of the richest ladies in town who rubbed shoulders with the high and mighty. She was an air hostess who flew international flights and made high wire connections.
According to the story, it was on one of those flights from America to Nigeria that she crossed paths with the APC leader and thus began a sizzling romance between the two. One thing led to another and she soon found herself carrying the now Seyi who somehow, got passed on to Senator Remi as hers. No one can tell why this happened or why the duo never tied the knot or why Bunmi never raised Seyi, who was raised by Remi while she rode off into the sunset never to be heard of again for a long time.
Now the once glamorous high flying air hostess is back but has since shed her glamorous toga to embrace a life of simplicity. She is now a dedicated servant in God’s Vineyard, a renowned Prophetess and the main attraction at the Calvary Parish of the Celestial Church of Christ, Ogba ,Lagos, a white garment church. She is said to be very energetic, prayerful, and a force to be reckoned with in spiritual matters.
While Seyi knows who he is mother is, he has out of respect for his father’s status and the sacrifices of Senator Oluremi in bringing him up, been unable to acknowledge his real mother in public. Even when he tied the knot at a destination wedding to Lebanese-Nigerian beauty, Layal, his actual mother, Bunmi Oshonike was nowhere near any of the several ceremonies that took place both in Lagos and in Italy.
