Lanre Folawiyo Set To Re-Marry, Ten Years After Wife's Death


-As Tunde Folawiyo Leads Family Delegation To Ghana for Introduction

Eventually, Lanre Folawiyo, one of the sons of the late multibillionaire industrialist and Baba Adinni of Nigeria, Chief Wahab Iyanda Folawiyo, has finally given in to the pressure mounted by his family and friends over the past few years to give marriage a shot again. Lanre has remained single after his wife, Fadeke (née TOS Benson) died ten years ago.
We gathered that Lanre, who is also also a billionaire in his own right, has settled for a half Ghanaian, half Belgian beauty who has been a constant fixture in his life for some time now. An introduction ceremony was recently held in Accra, Ghana, to seal the union. 
Lanre's elder brother, Tunde Tijani Folawiyo, who heads the behemoth Folawiyo business

empire, led the entire family to Ghana, and the event turned out to be very colourful. Notable among those who featured on the entourage list was Lanre's mother Alhaja Bolatito Folawiyo, his eldest sister, Toyosi Folawiyo-Johnson, his step-mother, Sisi Abah Folawiyo, his mother-in-law, Ester Benson, his brothers-Bayo and Bolaji and sisters. His sister-in-law, Lisa Folawiyo (née Idowu), the international fashion designer, was also on the entourage. 

It is imperative to note that Lanre is still hugely loved within the T.O.S Benson's family for his resolve not to remarry after the death of his beloved wife in 2004. Lanre and Fadeke were childhood lovers who grew to become a couple in 2000, until death rewrote their trajectory. Since then, Lanre held on to the memories of his beloved Fadeke, doting on their only son, Amil and refusing to let another woman into his life. Ten years after, Lanre has agreed to soften his stance and is on the verge of being officially married before the end of the year. The marriage ceremony is billed to take place in Belgium, and it is going to be a strictly family affair event.
