“You’re the only one that never goes,” Faithia Balogun’s son drags absentee father Saidi on his graduation ceremony
Faithia Williams and her son, Khalid Balogun
The teenager who recently passed out of school took to his official IG page @thekhalid_ with this message:
I love YOU SO MUCH MUM..YOU BEEN THERE FOR ME SINCE THE BEGINNING..U ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT NEVER GOES..I LOVE U MUM…..@faithiawilliams
This is a direct swipe at Saidi Balogun who many described as an absentee father to Khalid and his sister, Aaliyah.
The Baloguns: United for a day
However, Saidi Balogun and Fathia Williams, put their differences aside, at least for a day, to celebrate their son’s graduation on Saturday.
Saidi’s son, Khalid, whom he had with Fathia, graduated from secondary school in Lagos.
The celebration of his graduation saw the two ex-lovers reunite as a family after a long time.
Fathia and Saidi were all smiles as they posed for a family photograph at the occasion.
Faithia and Saidi were married for six years. Their marriage took place on September 7, 2000, at the Ikorodu Marriage Registry, Lagos.
They were separated for a few years before they officially divorced on January 17, 2014.
In November 2017, Fathia reverted to her maiden name “Williams” three years after their divorce was finalised.
The union produced two children.
