AY Makun Opens Up: Navigating the Turbulent Waters of Marriage Amid Speculations

Ayo Makun has recently taken to Instagram to confront the swirl of rumors surrounding his marriage.

Nigerian comedian and Actor, Ayo Makun, also known as AY, has responded to speculations of crisis in his marriage with his wife Mabel Makun.

The notorious blogger Gistlover sparked a firestorm with scandalous claims that Mabel had left her marital abode, attributing her exit to purported infidelity on the part of the comedian.

However, AY admitted that neither he nor his wife is without fault, yet he expressed a firm stance against delving deeper into their private matters for public consumption.

AY revealed that one of the reasons for his discretion is the presence of his teenage daughter Michelle on social media, as he prioritizes safeguarding her mental well-being from any potential harm.

AY’s willingness to confront the rumors surrounding his marriage sheds light on the challenges faced by public figures when their personal lives become fodder for gossip and speculation. Despite the facade of glamour and success, celebrities like AY are not immune to the trials and tribulations of marriage, which often require resilience, patience, and compromise.

Throughout their two-decade-long marriage, AY and Mabel have undoubtedly experienced their share of ups and downs, navigating the complexities of love, family, and career in the public eye. While their decision to part ways may come as a shock to fans and well-wishers, it also serves as a reminder of the fragility of relationships and the importance of mutual respect and understanding.

As AY and Mabel embark on separate paths, it’s essential to recognize the courage and vulnerability it takes to confront the end of a long-term partnership. While the dissolution of their marriage may mark the end of one chapter, it also presents an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and eventual healing.

He openly acknowledged that his longstanding friendship and marriage of 20 years with Mabel is slipping from his grasp. AY expressed frustration over the propagation of falsehoods about him, which has stirred significant reactions from his online fanbase.

He wrote;

“Many people believe that staying silent simply means that one is incapable of dealing with issues. Projecting a negative narrative against someone who is not struggling to defend himself doesn’t mean he is weak. Some of us are just logical enough to understand the difference between opinions, values, beliefs, and facts.

“The personality and ability that I possess simply confirm that i have reached that stage in my life where I can not be entertaining the public with deep personal family issues. They just might be too much to handle concerning the individuals involved. Not even when I have a grown-up daughter who has access to social media. Her mental health needs to be protected from seeing things she can not be proud of online.

“Yes! Without compromising my family, i have found myself doing some things that i am not proud of today. It is one thing to watch my friendship/ marriage of 20 years slip off my hands, but it’s another thing for the parties involved to understand how to appropriate the blames in a space that is designed for most women to always play the victims and win. I can tell you for free that no one is completely INNOCENT enough to cast stones.

“Presently, i am loving the way that lies about me in all these blogs are traveling faster than the truth. But my painful truth will eventually beat away all the lies.”


AY Makun’s candid revelation regarding the troubles in his marriage serves as a poignant reminder of the fragility of relationships and the importance of compassion in times of adversity. As he and Mabel embark on separate journeys, may they find solace in the love and support of their family, friends, and fans, and may their resilience inspire others facing similar challenges in their own lives.
