Reuben Abati Unveils Third Wife…Pens Poetic Love Message On Her Birthday



Former Senior Special Assistant, Media to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Reuben Abati, has married again.

This time, his third wife.

The Arise TV anchor and Peoples Democratic {PDP}’s Deputy Governorship candidate for the 2019 gubernatorial election is in high spirits today October 31, 2023 as his wife, former Ms Kikelomo Atanda-Owo celebrates her birthday.


Though the couple is yet to celebrate their first anniversary, Kikelomo aka Kiki is the chief host of RealTalkWithKike, a live TV/radio talk show on Inspiration FM and Silverbird TV.

Meanwhile, her darling husband, who is also a columnist with the Guardian newspaper, took to Instagram this morning to pen down a poetic message for his wife.

Dr Abati wrote, “ It is World Kiki Day today, Happy birthday to my remarkable and intellectually beautiful wife in her forties, yet defying the aging process @realtalkwithkike 🎂💖

You, my wife possess a taste that matches your impeccable work ethic as a hardworking woman. Your elegance is only outshined by your work ethic, and I am beyond proud of you.

The stylist of my heart, you’ve effortlessly woven your magic every morning for the past three years. I understand I might owe you for this fashion transformation, but hey, I’m a humble journalist, after all. 😉


You are not only my life partner but also my confidante. Even when we find ourselves in a disagreement, I adore how we set it aside to share stories, gossip, and bond. Your kindness, Kiki, knows no bounds. You are the person closest to me on this planet. True intimacy means someone who knows you, the good and the bad, yet loves you regardless, and I am grateful for you by myside, Kiki. Your entrepreneurial skills are nothing short of impressive with academic decrees in about three disciplines and years of professional experience. A no-nonsense demeanor complements your calming look,and believe me all, no one should be fooled.

Your numerous awards reflect your outstanding contributions, but your true worth goes beyond mere accolades. You’ve been the catalyst that reignited my zest back for life, motivating me more to reach for greater heights. It’s not about material possessions; it’s about two souls joining to accomplish more together. You are the type of woman who brings everything to the table—intelligence, value, financial acumen, purpose, wisdom, class, ambition, and so much more.

By your nature, you yearn to assist people, even those who may not deserve your kindness. I pray you consider being more discerning, as the world can be unkind. Don’t stop being the remarkable person you are, but choose carefully who receives your unwavering kindness.

You stand more successful than your peers. I can only pray for God’s continued grace to protect you from life’s challenges. May this new season usher in more blessings and joy.


We are all your biggest cheerleaders, Kiki. Happy birthday, Iyawo e!❤ @realtalkwithkike

Kikelomo is Abati’s third wife.

His first wife is Iyabode whom he met when he was 26 and she 23.


The 57-year-old former spokesman to ex-President Goodluck got married to another woman named Omolara who put together his 50th birthday in November 2015 six months after he left Aso Rock.

The union with Omolara was, however, short-lived, leaving both parties bruised and bitter.

Abati’s new wife Kikelomo has also been married twice before.


Her last marriage was to Professor Ademola Abass, former special adviser on overseas affairs and investment to former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos.

She gave her account of the marriages in her book titled Unbroken which Abati reviewed when it was presented to the public in 2021.

Abati also edited her second book titled RealTalk Diary Quotes in 2022.


The celebrated writer referred to Kikelomo as “this special gem in my life” in a message posted on Instagram to celebrate her birthday in October last year. He has at other times called her his intellectual sparring partner, gist partner and friend.
