1-+89Congrats, how does it feel to be married?

I feel great and complete being married and above all I bless God for His grace.‎ It’s a very good thing for a man to get married.

How are you enjoying married life?

Marriage has been so beautiful. I am very grateful to God for it.

Where did you spend your honeymoon and how was the experience?

We spent our honeymoon in two places, South Africa and Mauritius. It was our first trip after our wedding, so the sweet and irreplaceable feelings and experiences we had will always linger in our memories.

Tell us your love story, how did your path and hers cross?

We met in school (UNIBEN) sometime in 2007, and I was her first friend on her first day in school. And like they say, the rest is history.

What was the attraction?

Nothing really! Just her being friendly and we enjoyed jokes and laugh together. We didn’t even exchange contacts that night.

How long did you date before you eventually got married?

We were very good friends for a long time like my paddy, until we decided to take it to the next level. We started dating since 2007, when we were in school.

How did you propose to her?

It was a bit difficult because I hadn’t done it before, neither do I know how it feels but I did it. However we travelled to South Africa for holiday to watch AFCON 2013. Then one thing led to another, I sneaked out of the room to buy a ring and after we saw the Bafana Bafana match a day before Nigeria played Ivory Coast, I proposed to her at the Nelson Mandela Square and she said yes!

How did it click to you that she was your wife?

God and she is my best friend. There was nothing more I could have asked from God for a life partner other than my wife.

How long did she keep you waiting before she said yes?

Less than a minute.

What do you cherish most about your wife?

Everything. She makes me happy, and once there is joy, peace of mind and happiness, then every other thing is in place.

How many kids would you love to have?

We leave that to God Almighty the giver of all good things. So, keep your eyes and ears open.

How long have you been a radio presenter?

I have been on radio (Wazobia FM, Lagos) for three years plus.

Why presenting?

It’s a passion and besides its part of entertainment and I love it. Though as a stand-up comedian, it’s another platform to express yourself creatively, educating and reminding the public about their civic duties.
