Afeez Owo is a popular Yoruba movie actor and director. He is the husband of another famous actress, Mide Martins. Mide is the daughter of late Nollywood actress, Funmi Martins.
His real names are Afeez Abiodun. He was born on the 12th April and he is popularly called Afeez Owo due to his association with Yemi Ayebo.
Afeez is a native of Iseyin, Oyo State. He attended St Paul Anglican School, Idiroko and Faramora Secondary School in Oyo State before travelling to Lagos in search of greener pastures.
Afeez has always been interested in acting even as far back as his primary school days. At that time, he wrote a drama script titled, “Kokoro aiye” which was applauded by his school mates back then.
When Afeez came down to Lagos in the mid 1980s, he linked up with Razaq Olayiwola (Ojo opa gogo) who was from his home town. It was through Razaq that Afeez was able to join the Yoruba movie industry.
According to Mide, Afeez has always been around her space. When she was growing up, Afeez was her mother’s manager. It would be recalled that Mide’s mother, Funmi Martins who was also an actress died on the 6th of May, 2002 after a brief illness.
When Mide’s mother died, Afeez was literally the only person that stood by her. As a result, one thing led to another and they fell in love. The lovebirds began dating and as they say the rest is history. Afeez’s marriage to Mide is more than ten years old and their union has produced two wonderful girls.
