Veteran actor, Doyin Hassan, announced earlier in the week that he welcomed his first child after 24 years of waiting which trended on social media. However, the news was misunderstood by some persons who wondered if the actor had been married for 24 years, considering that he lost his wife, Bolanle Doyin-Hassan in 2020. 

He is known for his roles in Mount Zion Films, and he is also a producer, director, and lecturer.

He cleared the air in a post on Instagram on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, saying, “I waited for 24 years and not my wife, Oladunni. My testimony about 24 years of waiting has been misunderstood in certain quarters.

“The testimony was about me, not the women I married. I first got married on the 5th of June 1999 and lost two precious women to the cold hands of death over time. I married Adeola Doyin-Hassan in June 1999 and I lost her 8.5 years after (February 20, 2008 on her birthday).

“I waited for two years before I remarried Bolanle Doyin-Hassan in April 2010. Bolanle passed away in December 2020 and I waited one year and seven months before I remarried in October 2022. 

"My new wife was not barren for 24 years. I was the one who shared a testimony of my tears and toil for 24 years. Meeting Oladunni was God’s redirection of my divine journey. I hope this is clear enough. God’s blessings.”

Several persons congratulated him for the good news including business executive, Kola Adesina who wrote, “Doyin, may you be blessed. Congratulations to you and madam. No more tears by His grace.”

Veteran actor, Jide Kosoko commented, “Doyin, we thank Almighty God for this gift. I pray that He will continue to bless you from all angles. Stay blessed aburo.’  Biodun Thomas said, “Congratulations egbon. To God be all the glory.”

Chioma Bethel said, “Your testimony humbled me. I was awestruck that you served as a drama minister despite this waiting in your heart. I sat in my heart and was really sober. So, seeing this is another dose of humbling. All I can say is, may God continue to comfort you and give you double in every area. God bless your family, sir.”

Moribigbe wrote, “My LASU lecturer, you are a strong man sir. Congratulations to you and your family.” Gospel singer Tope Alabi commented, “Congratulations to my people."
