Pasuma’s Girlfriends were at Least 6, but He Married None
All through his journey in life till his present age of 56, Pasuma has dated lots of women, some of whom had kids for him during their relationship. Some of his previous love affairs can also be traced to notable Nollywood actresses.

Pasuma, in his words, admitted that he would have married by now, and Ayo Adesanya would have been the lucky woman. He professed his depth of love for her in an interview he granted the media.

Why is Pasuma Not Yet Married Despite His Numerous Girlfriends?
Like every other individual, Pasuma has his reservations when it comes to settling down with a woman. His beliefs and views about marriage may seem to be a little vicious and different from his colleagues in the Fuji genre, but he sure knows his onions and what he wants in a relationship.
According to him in one of his interview sessions, marriage is not one of those things to rush into. One must be able to clearly define what he wants in marriage and his life partner. When asked the kind of woman he is interested in getting married to, he was swift to reply that he wanted a God-fearing woman, a woman that is educated and homely, and a woman with a genuine love for him.
Having defined in clear terms what he wanted in his wife to be, it is apparent that these features combined make a strong and stringent condition or requirement to be fulfilled by our modern-day women, some of whom had betrayed Pasuma’s trust and broken his heart in his past relationship with them. For someone that is not ready to bend the rule, this might take a long while to find a woman that will meet all the requirements. For one of Pasuma’s girlfriends to emerge as his wife would definitely be a tall order to fulfill.
With these facts at one’s disposal, it can be easily deduced why Pasuma has not settled down with a woman, despite his age and achievements in life. Though this may not be too easy to handle, as there can be pressures from family and friends, he never seems bothered as such and takes solace because God has blessed him enough with children; this is his greatest joy. In one of his interviews, when asked why he is still single, he said he is not single, as he said he had ten children, and they are more than a wife to him.
