Nigerian ex-beauty queen, Dabota Lawson, says her parents were happy to welcome her back home after she separated from her husband, Prince Sunny Aku.
She got married to billionaire Sunny Aku in a lavish wedding at Oriental Hotel in 2014. And she filed for divorce in 2016.
She welcomed her daughter in 2016 in the United States.
In an interview with TVC’s ‘Your View’ show, Dabota said her parents did not probe her to find out the reason her marriage ended in divorce, noting that no one wanted to put her under pressure.
She claimed that her ex-husband later reached out to her and apologized while admitting his flaws.
“My parents were so happy to have me back, my dad and my mother didn’t ask any questions. Nobody really wanted to stress me about it. I just went home and was fine.
“He [ex-husband] contacted me and apologised for a lot of things, but I have moved past that stage. I’m not emotionally invested in it, so I was able to forgive and we have been fine since then.”
According to online sources, the Rivers State indigene hails from a family of 10 and had her early childhood in Nigeria before proceeding to the UK at the age of 16.
She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Financial Economics at the University of Leicester before proceeding to the London School of Business and Finance where she studied Accounting and Business.
Dabota participated in Nigeria’s Top Model contest where she ended 9th in 2007; while she won Miss Nigeria UK pageant in 2009.
She founded her own events management company called Diamond Inc. together with three friends in 2010.
