Fans are Asking Lilian Esoro why She Didn’t Post an Anniversary Message for Husband Ubi Franklin



Ubi Franklin & Lilian Esoro

Ubi Franklin & Lilian Esoro

Today November 1 2016 marked Lilian Esoro and Ubi Franklin‘s 1 year anniversary. A year ago they got married in Lagos, amidst family and industry colleagues.

The Made Men Music mogul wished Lilian a happy anniversary today, and thanked her for being a God-fearing, lovely wife and great mother to their baby – click here if you missed it.

However, so far, Lilian has not reciprocated his message, which has led to many tongues wagging. She has been present on social media, and posted a group photo with her sisters and friends.lilian-esoro

Fans are all over her Instagram page asking if anything is amiss, as they wished her happy anniversary and she hasn’t replied them, but has responded to other messages.

Many have said she should have just pretended and posted something to congratulate her husband on the grand opening of Tilt Lounge – click here for official photos with Annie Idibia, Blossom Chukwujekwu and more, and also their anniversary.

    One of the saddest stories I’ve read on this week! I really admire these ones. Same way I smile silly seeing Gbenro and Osas lovey-dovey pics. Ubi and Lilian, such a young marriage. Hmm! It’s well. My earnest prayer, they resolve whatever disputes and bounce back together as one. It’s never too late to make amends and change from any wrongful acts. But celebrity marriages tho, I just had a flashback on AY and Mabel.

    I think I read in one of Ubi’s unnecessary epistles where he referred to his wife as an extremely private person. Not everyone likes tho show/fake for the gram. Keeep your private life private, girl.

    • James

      If she’s private, why is she on Instagram responding to other posts? The girl was just wrong for the guy.

      Lilian is not a private person. She likes show off too much. Mother of cheap publicity. Yes! I know her very well. She got herself into this. Since they were dating, she always complains of ubi cheating… Lemme stop here before they decode me.

      November 2, 2016 at 12:02 pm

      But Lillian sef was never faithful na! She and her partner in crime Aunty Freda used to call Ubi “Calabar Houseboy” behind his back. So why was she complaining when she was just using Ubi? Ubi sef, it serves him right! Woman Beater!

      I will suggest u check SDK for more insight. It’s not jst bout the anniversary post, in fact that actually put the icing on the cake. But then again, it’s no one’s business. We jst wish them well. Even if the rumours are false, all for the better then.

      ???lol!!! Very funny but true. If you decide to paparazzi your relationship you must be consistent or tongues will start wagging. On another note, if it’s true then I don’t feel bad for bros at all. This is a guy that bad mouthed Emma Nyra Upandan, shading her by praising his wife and now see what’s happening. Karma? Maybe, maybe not.

    Omg! With all these comments that I’m reading hmmm. How there’s no fire on the Mountain. Abi Emma Nyra missed the bullet big time. I know they get it together tho for whatever reasons. Nollywood is getting worse than Hollywood.

  12. Panda

    November 2, 2016 at 2:33 am

    Lmao, they are writing a drama because she didn’t post anything? How is this the first thing on their minds, asking if her marriage is not doing well? Are they asking out concern or do they just want to gist and gossip?

  13. Nonya

    November 2, 2016 at 2:39 am

    When Emma Nyra spoke people threw insults. These people who are quick to throw punches and slaps never change. Wait and see, she will be accused of adultery or something along those lines (typical script). Ladies (and gents even), if a person has not sought proper counseling to work through their anger issues, stay on your lane…your love, beauty and money can not and will not change them.

      November 2, 2016 at 11:05 am

      People did not take Emma Nyra seriously because she was giving haff haff story, she was saying Ubi beat her but she was lying about sleeping/dating him!!

    November 2, 2016 at 2:43 am

    Some of these comments are rude, true. Though me I like gossip. That’s why I opened this post in the first place. So all these people saying mind your business should goan sit down.

    November 2, 2016 at 2:43 am

    Eyaaaa I hope it isn’t true.
    They may just be having issues do u. Don’t like seeing marriages break down.
    Maybe everything was too soon, dating, engaged, marriage and baby within a year.
    I wish dem well.

  16. Anon

    November 2, 2016 at 3:21 am

    Why can’t people mind their business?? Millions off people have marriage problems, and I’m sure those people commenting on her page can’t talk when their husband is talking but as long as they are married on paper they have the right to say rubbish on her page. Someone actually called her foolish. Wawuuuu
    If he beats her and she left, if she played away match and she left, I don’t really think it’s our business. As Linda has social network and SDK has chronicles of rubbish Nigerian marriages and situationships, I guess it’s BN’s new job to carry bullying and unnecessary articles on celebs. THIS is the blog of bullies

    I remember my first few years of marriage so traumatic.. Infact the first 6 years. 13 years on, moved far far away from in laws and interfering eyes and it has been bliss. Hubby and I rarely argue and when we do he apologises very quickly. LORD I am grateful. Please if there is any truth in this mend this couple for me. I really love them both together. Celebrity Marriage have so may eyes focused on them. Every little issue is magnified in astronomic proportions. This too will pass. It is well.

      Relax. Calm down. Your eagerness to spill tea is quite despicable because it seems you know what you know by being in their inner circle. You shouldn’t come and expose your so called friends with this amebo behavior just cos you’re excited to finally have a medium to spew all your hatred. Chill out.

    • BN Post My Comment

      November 2, 2016 at 1:25 pm

      Bitch puh-leeeeaaze! I am not “spewing out” hatred because there’s no such thing; spew means to force something out in large quantities so to say that I’m “spewing out” something is tautological. From your inept use of grammar, it is obvious that YOU are in their circle, hence your pathetic attempt at damage control. Therefore, YOU tell them to be discreet about their private affairs, or better yet, be careful about the “friends” they confide in so that strangers like me won’t know about their marital discord. Namaste!!

    Things may not be very rosy in their marriage for now but that doesn’t mean that the marriage is over. This is the reason why I urge people to keep their personal relationship off of social media. It’s your wedding anniversary, wish your husband happy anniversary to his ears, if you prefer to write; write him a note, a letter or a text. Why write it for the whole world to see? and when on one of his birthdays you fail to talk about it on social media people start speculating.
    I know a man that was willing to cheat on his wife 2 weeks after their wedding, he cheats like his life depends on it, yet he comes on Facebook to sing her praise on their anniversary. I ask, what is he trying to prove? Is it not better to work hard at having a happy and successful marriage than to work hard at projecting that you are having one? Wouldn’t I be rather happy than to pretend that I am happy? Marriage goes beyond SM, marriage is more than just being on fleek for the gram. The first few months are the most difficult but if you get the hang of it, it gets better. I wish they will get past this. It’s sad to see such a young marriage fail.

    A few comments from people

    “I saw this one first hand! A few days before she married UBi, she was in the U.K. F-ing that footballer Omeruo! ”

    “Let Ubi leave her so she can gallivant upandan,i just dislike that lady”

    “That Lilian esoro too dey do… Na so so circulatory system she dey do… Forming as if she’s friends with every dick and Harry celebrity!!! Make dem separate joor. Who she epp ”

    “Nawa o,ubi and Lilian. Sharp babe,mumu man
    They both have no business being married. Why would ubi goan marry a known runs girl as Lilian. They should just go their separate ways,the marriage can’t be salvaged”

    “For the first time, I knew the people involved. Well, if you ask me, she was too much for him. Sad though. ”

    “Stella dat marriage ws neva meant to be abinitio!lilian neva loved ubi!she married him out of pity and for her to hv her baby den move on!her true love is ken omeruo!d uk based nigerian footballer!beht ken nor kukuma send her sef!lilian eye no de for house or marriage at all!she is dating charly akpruka for runs and money!ken omeruo for love,love wey d guy nor de give am sef!”

    ” Ooo lilian is confirm runs girl have seen her in satellite town visiting Golden groove club owner, even tayo of new Romeo& Juliet nnpc, majesty of umuawulu, that’s some of her men in the main land even alhaji galadima b4 he relocate to island. So acting is her part time job her full time work na runs. Am not suprise her marriage broke in less than 1yr. She can’t leave runs she addicted to different prick.

    True sis , marriage is so over rated, and its hard when you are married to a man who is quick to anger.
    Little argument, hubby go vex anyhow, he told me he contemplated divorce twice and we are just 2 years o. I also told him I have reached out to agent to secure an apartment for me and the kids, fear catch dude.
    This recent one lasted up to two weeks in-between my birthday and wedding anniversary. A man we slept together with on same bed didn’t even wish me happy birthday , next day anniversary, nothing from him. We are not celebs o , but family and friends knew something is wrong .
    We made up few days later , and no apologies from him. He’s birthday is in 2days and I want to retaliate. He even told me to retaliate if that will make me feel good , but I don’t want to send the wrong signal.
    I think marriage should be substitute with some kind of union not as complicated as marriage .

      My sister. I can relate to your story completely. I was in your exact same position for 3 years and I thought it was normal for couples to keep malice and retaliate and carry face. No it isn’t! It is emotional blackmail and abuse. My then husband was the king of retaliation for every little detail even for not picking him up one night when his car won’t start and I was already home and not feeling well. He could have taken a taxi but he kept this in his heart and mentioned it another time when I had completely forgotten. He was very quick to anger as well and slapped me a few times. I left him eventually because in the end I realised he was too high maintenance for my small life. I became overly conscious of anything I said to him in an attempt not to missyarn! I became a bitter person from all the unnecessary arguments and malice and unwarranted slaps. I believe it was the reason I couldn’t have kids. No one should have to live this one chance at life with so much caution with the supposed ‘life partner’. Let me give you a bit more details- when we want to make love, he will touch me and touch me and touch me and I will never get wet because the part of my mind that belonged to him was dead. During the day he would talk down at me and at night he will expect the fountain to flow. I moved on. My parents were very supportive because from all the mental and emotional abuse I had gradually lost all my confidence and everyone could see that I was becoming a robot. If your husband is fixable, the time to have that conversation to mend things is now. There is no reason, no quarrelling enough to ignore you on your birthday and anniversary. Today am married to my friend and I have a gorgeous son too. Look after yourself and if you need someone to talk to, let me know and I’ll leave you an email.

      November 2, 2016 at 7:09 pm

      Hmmnnnn, I can completely relate! I understand the urge to retaliate but I’m glad you’re deciding against it. Don’t retaliate, be yourself and most importantly lets Gods love guide your actions and not your husbands behaviour, i know it can be hard. Sending you Gods many blessings.

      So you think the marriages that are struggling today all started out bad or the dating must have been horrible? you don’t think people change right in front of your eyes or over time. Please educate yourself on emotional intelligence and pray you don’t experience such.

    You shoulda been patient. Two people marrying two wrong people due to egos.
    Patience is important.

    lesson – no one should feel presssured to do what they dont want to do, Dont let your family or friends pressure you. Listen to your gut feeling

    Love is many things, the one thing it is not and can never be ‘is unsure”. – quote by maya angelou,
