There are no records of how they met and how long they were lovers before deciding to become a legal couple. The lovers got married in a secret traditional marriage in 2021, but the actress shared the pictures of their marriage on April 13, 2021.
Despite taking the media by surprise, she was congratulated and wished well by many Nollywood stars, including Toyin Abraham, Laide Bakare, and many others. They are still living together, though their marriage has been rocked by rumors of domestic violence.
