Murphy Afolabi And Kemi Afolabi Relationship
Murphy Afolabi and Kemi Afolabi are renowned actors who are notable for giving sterling performances in movies. With many acting credits and many awards to their names, they are both pillars of the Yoruba movie industry and Nollywood, by extension. However, due to their names and being in the same profession, the thespians are often misconstrued to be siblings or married to each other. Although there could be a link between them, we have facts to prove that only their profession in Nollywood unites them and not family or marriage.
Murphy Afolabi and Kemi Afolabi are Neither Siblings nor Married to Each Other
Virtually everyone assumes Murphy Afolabi and Kemi Afolabi are related by blood or marriage. We bet you think that too. While they bear the same surname, they’re not related in any way. Both are popular Yoruba actors who have made marks in the Yoruba movie industry independent of each other. Outside the film industry, they are also pursuing different relationships with different people but never came close to dating.
While Murphy Afolabi was born and bred in Osun state, Kemi Afolabi was born and raised in Lagos State, both in South-Western Nigeria. Though they are both Yorubas, their families had nothing in common while they were toddlers and even up to their adult age. Perhaps it was not until they both became famous in Nollywood as Yoruba thespians that people started noting the similarities in Murphy Afolabi and Kemi Afolabi’s last names.
Though it could have been assumed that their similar surname is not a coincidence as they could be married, our fact-finding research revealed that both Yoruba movie stars didn’t even come close to dating talk more of being married. Apparently, their having the same surname is just a coincidence.
