When did Adedimeji get married 

Adedimeji Lateef got married to his long time colleague and friend, actress Adebimpe Oyebade.

The beautiful couple tied the forever knot their forever love journey on Saturday, December 18 and shared the heart-warming moments with us via photos and videos on social media with the words.

Prior to their marriage, the pair were rumored to have been dating in 2019, but Adedimeji and Adebimpe debunked such claims simply stating that they were just good friends.

By 2020, fans were certain that the Nollywood actor Lateef and actress Bimle had tied the knot after they started sharing traditional wedding pictures.

Lateef and Adebimpe maintained their earlier stances that they were just friends and we're modelling for an also ebi brand.

In fact, Adebimpe vehemently reiterated her stance. She made it clear that she can’t get engaged to someone in the spotlight and being rumoured to be in a relationship at one time or the other is one of the prices that come with being a celebrity.

The irony of the whole matter is that both Lateef and Adebimpe are now happily married.

The couple are well known actors in the Yoruba and Nollywood industry.
