Few years down the line, Mercy found love again in the arms of equally divorced business man, Lewis Gentry.
They couple have a six year old son, Juwon and they haven’t stopped professing love for each other.
Popular Nollywood actress, Lola Alao legalized her second marriage in the United States to American-based IT expert, Wale Ajibola, last year, 2013.
The Yoruba actress who had a daughter from her previous marriage said she has forgiven her ex-husband, Dare Ogunlana, but allegations made by the man during the heat of the divorce saga still lingers.
Dare described Lola as “diabolical, deceitful and a woman not to be trusted”, to which the woman responded with maturity by keeping mum.
In a recent interview, Lola agreed her ex husband was a nice man but got carried away by the pain of the separation. According to her “that man is a very nice man, it just didn’t work out between us”, she said.
