Popular Yoruba actor and producer, Murphy Afolabi found himself in a big scandal about two years ago but even as you read this, the scandal is still trailing him; having refused to face the challenge and resolve the issue.
This was revealed during a live programme Labe Orun.
It began in 2013 when a then 20-year-old make-up artist, Arayinbogoke Busayo, alleged Murphy Afolabi as the biological father of her then three-year-old daughter, Moyosore; which Murphy vehemently denied.
Busayo, said she was in company of a friend of hers, Khadijat, an actress, and that both of them went to the location to check on her (Khadijat) boyfriend, Adekola Tijani, better known as Golugo. She added that Afolabi allegedly used that opportunity to talk Busayo
into a relationship.
According to Busayo, she met Afolabi at a movie location in Ikorodu, Lagos, early in 2009. She explained further:
“He came to meet me in my friend’s room and she excused us for some time. First, I was reluctant, but after troubling me for a while, I agreed to date him and he had sex with me that same day.”
When she realised she was pregnant, Murphy was contacted, but according to Busayo…
“He cursed my mom and I on the phone, and denied being responsible for my pregnancy. He said our plan was to hook him down because he is a star actor.”
Busayo later contacted anchor of Yoruba radio programme called Labe Orun, to help her appeal to Murphy on his programme, to take up responsibility of his child.
Speaking with Adisa of Labe Orun, Murphy said:
“It happened that she came to a location with her friend who was like a mother to her, and I was the director of the movie.
She was clinging herself to me but I tried as much as possible to avoid her. Later on, she said she wanted to act and my response was that she should go and tell Golugo. I had sex with her that day, I cannot deny that, but while she was at the location, I found that different men also slept with her to the extent that I was ashamed to have known her.”
“To my surprise, one day, her mother just placed a call to me saying that I impregnated her daughter and I explained to her respectfully. But it seemed that they wanted to force the pregnancy on me. I made love to her; but I was not the only one, on the same day; so why should I be held responsible as the father of the baby?
It doesn’t take me anything to claim the child but I can not and I am not ready for any marriage for now. So, why should I do such? Well, if its DNA that will resolve this, I am ready. Although I know that baby is not mine.” Afolabi asked over the phone, obviously in a rage.
According to Adisa on his Programmes last weekend, he appealed to Murphy to cooperate to a DNA test like he started in 2013, but up till this moment, October, 2015, Murphy has refused to pay for the DNA or show any readiness to do so.
Busayo was also interviewed on the programme, she said her daughter is growing fast. She is now in Lagos with her sister, schooling; and she appealed to Murphy Afolabi to come for the DNA to prove her wrong. She said she recently took her daughter, Moyosore to Murphy’s family house, but the head of the family said Murphy hardly visit the house, adding that he was not in position to tell him what to do.
