Reports say: Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, a Nigerian Actress, singer, philanthropist and former model of an Ondo descent from Lagos, Nigeria paid a visit to New York’s world famous tropical Grill Restaurant.
She was there to sit down with journalist Ekerete Udoh, to have an interview in which she gave some insight on her marriage to Captain Ekeinde.
In the candid interview she talked about her family life, the success and the challenges she may have faced, remaining true to her values, and vows in an industry where such vows are sacrificed.
When asked about started her success in marriage.
She said: “I have been favored by the Lord”, she began. “I am truly blessed to have been married to one-of-a-kind husband who appreciates what I do, encourages me to excel in my craft. Let me tell you this: I take my marriage very seriously. If you treat your marriage with levity and careless abandon, you will reap the reward for such bad behavior. My husband is an angel, brought by God to my life, and it has been a blessing having him as my husband.”
The next question was: Have you ever receive material things from Powerful men in Nigeria who ran after you and pay them back in kind?
She revealed: “Sure, I have received lots of goodies from my male admirers,” she amused. “I do not give anything in return. I always tell them that I am married and would not compromise my martial vows. If after making that point clear, they still continue to shower me with gifts, maybe believing that something will break in the future, then I cannot help them.”
The next question was if she had ever met men that she genuinely took a liking to, and was tempted to sacrifice her marital vows, she answered:
“Absolutely. I have been tempted many times to cheat on my husband by men I really liked. But when you think of what you stand to lose, the destruction of all you have labored to build, when you weigh all the options, you are left to conclude that it is not worth the trouble. I know some women will find this somewhat objectionable, but if they want to be truthful to themselves, they will agree with me that, as married women, we have all faced moments that I have just described.”
