The Newly Weded Mr. and Mrs. Williams

News emerging from the home front of one of Nigeria’s dandiest men, Anthony Adekojo Adesegun Williams famously known as Kojo Williams has it that he has taken a new wife  on Thursday May 21, at 12:15 PM in Lagos.

The former Chairman of the nation’s football elite organization Nigerian Football Association (NFA) now Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) according to sources who broke the news to Asabeafrika took a new wedding vow with Princess Isidora Adewunmi, second daughter of His Royal Majesty Oba Michael Adeniyi Sonariwo, the Akarigbo of Remo Land, Ogun state-South West Nigeria on Thursday May 21st in Lagos. Princess Isidora Adewunmi is a half caste as her mum, Madam Joyce Adeniyi, a British trained nurse is a Jamaican by birth while her dad is the highly revered Akarigbo of Remo land in Ogun state-South West Nigeria. Her mother is the King’s first wife and mother of his eldest kids.
The wedding ceremony which was conducted by the head of the Ikoyi Marriage Registry in Lagos, one Mrs. Eze was said to have been carried out in a classical manner as the entire registry staff were moved to Kojo Williams’ off Adeola Odeku, Victoria Island, Lagos-South West Nigeria mansion in the noon of Thursday 21st May where the exchange of marital vow took place with Prayers and Bible reading conducted by one Pastor Anthony before a very limited number of relations and well-wishers from both families.  The entire program was conducted within 46 minutes as husband and wife were first counseled before the vows were exchanged with Kojo handing over a golden ring purchased from Paris to Isidora, 34. Kojo Williams is 56.

Mr & Mrs. Williams

Kojo Williams who is one of the smartest brains in the development of African football is the sole initiator of the Football College of Excellence in Kwara state, North Central Nigeria. He and his father, late Chief SB Williams are said to be responsible for 75% of Corporate development in the Nigerian Sports industry especially football in the last 30 years.  Kojo served as a member of the 5-a-side football committee in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for 10 years. He was one of the ten people across Africa that was saddled with the responsibility to turn around the face of African football in the Confederation of African football under Issa Hayatou. His core area of specialization is Football. Kojo Williams is also a German trained fire engineer and till date, he is reputed with the pedigree of being the Nigerian sport administrator who discovered formal eagle coach John Westerhoff.

He sacked his first wife; a dentist in the person of Dr. Remilekun Williams 5 years ago over what was termed irreconcilable differences. His parting away with the mother of his four eldest children (Christopher, Oyinade, Emmanuel and Ifeoluwa) equally led to his dumping of his former church, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) where he served as a deacon over what is equally termed “Hanky-panky spiritual meddlesomeness” in his private life. Kojo is now a full blown Catholic (Charismatic)

How they met
Kojo Williams who is well loved by the opposite sex due to his impeccable fashion sense was said to have ran into Isidora at a party couple of years ago and both of them only exchanged greetings and went their different ways until early in the year when another occasion presented itself for encounter. The source who confided in Asabeafrika said this second encounter presented the opportunity for the very pretty and sexy Isidora to remind the equally handsome and dandy football buff how she earlier met him at an event two years ago and that ignited a robust fire of attention from Kojo as he instantly noticed the inspiring beauty of Isidora and the story changed from there “I think he (Kojo) started noticing other things like beauty, charm and intelligence in her. He didn’t really approach her directly. You know Kojo is very apt in his decision, he always try to investigate before investing. He went through a female mutual friend and she was the one who actually connected both of them through Blackberry” said the source that was privy to how Kojo got his new wife.

So, what do you say to it sir?
When Asabeafrika put a call to Mr. Williams’ MTN Line at 10:06pm on Friday May 29th, an aide who picked the call said the former NFA boss was in a meeting and will get back to us. We told him what we wanted to know and he promised to relate to his boss. However, when we didn’t hear from the fashion loving football buff after an hour, we called back and this time around it was the former NFA Chairman who picked the call. On getting to know our reason for the call, Mr. Williams asked in a strong voice how we knew about the development “Who told you all this? Where did you get your information from?” But on getting to know that we indeed, had facts on the Thursday wedding, Mr. Williams who is likely to jet out to Nice, France with the woman that stole his heart next week confirmed the story “Yes, I have moved on. Yes, I have a new woman with me. Yes, she is now my wife and we actually wedded on Thursday 21st”.

On why he married the 34 years old ex-US marine expert, Kojo Williams replied “She is a very humble, God fearing, down to earth and extremely intelligent lady. My wife is a very cultured lady. She is not the typical materialistic person; she is a very professional lady. She is very straightforward; whatever you see with her is what you get”. Speaking further on Isidora, Kojo who declined to say anything about his ex-wife, Dr. Remilekun Williams gave more attributes of his new found love “I think she loves humanity. She loves charity and she doesn’t look down on people. Very humane, you can imagine the first day I took her out, she asked us to visit the sick at the hospital instead of an eatery and that really touched me and changed my perception about her. She loves giving care to the needy; I have never seen such a woman with a giving heart.  She is just a great soul with love and care for the ordinary people. I am happy, I made the choice to have her” the ex-NFA Chairman told Asabeafrika in a 15 minute chat.

During an encounter early last years inside his Victoria Island home, Kojo Williams who hate discussing about his old relationship said his ex-wife remains his best friend and confidant as they share very great and loving kids together. He later asked the reporters to respect her privacy as the mother of his children as he wouldn’t like to discuss issues that lead to their going apart in public.
However, today, Kojo Williams is married for the second time in his adult life and when Asabeafrika asked if his new queen will give him kids, he simply reacted like this “God owns that part of the relationship. If He gives us kids, so be it; one or two or three, I am not to tell you that and if none, glory be to Him” as the ex-NFA boss hung the receiver.

Born on February 23rd 1959 to late Sport baron and contractor Chief SB Williams and a royalty in the person of Princess Oni Orisan a former air hostess with British Airways from the Oshodi-Tapa Royal home of Lagos, Kojo attended St. Peter’s College, Abeokuta before he moved to Germany to study Business Administration at Hamburg College of Technology; he equally had a degree in Commercial Engineering and a third degree in fire protection and engineering from same institution. He later went to study sport management at Hamburg College of Sport Management, Germany. His tenure as NFA Chairman is reputed to be one of the best in the history of football development in Nigeria but was shortlived due to corruption in the sector which Kojo tried to eradicate.
