Interview excerpts, as she recounts on how she met her husband,

“When I first met him, I felt he was very arrogant. He was very tall, dark, handsome and very confident. He oozes that and he always expects that from me as well.

“So when I first met him, I didn’t fall in love. It wasn’t love at first sight. Although when he first met me, he said to me ‘so it’s either two things; I am either going to manage you or marry you.

“So I was just like ‘What! You are so full of yourself; I would never date you, let alone marry you’. So obviously, we decided he was going to manage me because I turned down the other option.

“I never saw myself getting romantically involved with him; however, on getting to discover another side of him, I fell for him. We worked so closely together and I discovered this soft emotional guy. One who gave up everything for my career.

“He had a great business in L.A but he moved to Nigeria because he really believed in me more than I believed in myself. So gradually I just started seeing in him, this person. So it was inevitable. I tried to fight it. It can’t happen and I couldn’t help it.

“Everybody who is married knows that there are ups and downs in marriages and we had our fair share.

“We kind of fought on our wedding day; we just had this little tiff outside and we are like arguing and everyone is like ‘welcome the beautiful bride and the groom’ and we are dancing in and he’s just like grumbling and it’s on camera.

“So everyone watching are like ‘Wait were you guys just arguing,’ so it’s real but there are cute moments and real moments.”
