Doyin Okupe’s gay son Bolu breaks up with lover

Bolu Okupe

Bolu Okupe, gay son of a two-time presidential spokesman Doyin Okupe, has broken up with his French boyfriend, Mfaome.

He announced this in an Instagram live session late Monday and also posted a video from the session on his feed.

“Yes we broke up,” he captioned the post, “Sadly we are done & our relationship is over. I was blessed by every bit of our time together but sometimes things just don’t work out. Love & Light.”

In the video, Bolu said there are always three sides of a story – the parties involved and the truth.

“I don’t feel like I want to talk about a situation related to him when he is not here to refute any claim or defend himself,” he said.

Bolu added that he would not be involved in messy breakups where former lovers drag each other on social media.

Bolu came out of the closet in January after posing in multi-coloured underwear holding similar clothing in an Instagram photo.

“Yes I’m Gay AF,” he wrote.

Then followed pictures of himself and his lover.

His father said he believed he was facing a spiritual battle.

Mr Okupe also said he had been aware and opposed to it and was praying for Bolu who is based in France where homosexuality is legalised.
