Then one faithful day, I was in the Theatre he came and someone dared me to kiss him and I laughed because I hate been dared, that was how the friendship starting and the love struck became stronger.
It wasn’t all rosy though, because we had a separation in 2012. It wasn’t an easy one for me though but thank God in November 28, 2014 he called and insisted I come visit him in Calabar you know as a woman, I had 2 do Shakara small that was how we started again and the love sparks continued.

He is a man with the brightest future, he is a thinker always on the move. His words of wisdom at times baffles me.
I know being married to a comedian doesn’t mean it will be all smiles always, as he has this part of him that anytime he brings it out- oh Lord you don’t want to know (laughs) but still that doesn’t change a thing. We argue, fight, and quarrel but makeup for the better.
He is a man of principle (all this prim and proper kind of men) getting married to him always elevated my status in life and amongst my peers. You know women wahala na.
Last prophet that kind man that when he looks at me and say’s I am not just a man for you, I am a men meaning he is all in 1 of all the men put together, just for me- I feel like a queen.
He is the love of my life, and the height ratio between us is what sparkles us the most cause our presence makes us been admired and that the swag of the whole thing.
I call him my crush because his so handsome-every day, every minute. You know that saying that it’s in the morning, that you get to see the beauty of a woman, but in my case, it is the reverse. And gives me strength and the zeal to carry on my daily activities.
I’m married to the most Prince charming man I know God-fearing, loving, hardworking above all the best man of the century.”
