How long have you been married to Peter Okoye?
I have been married for 4 years and I have been staying with my husband for 13 years.
How did you meet your husband?
He was a member of P. Square and I was with a firm “Benson and Hedges”. We were doing road shows together and we just started talking.
How did you both fall in Love?
I think after talking for a month, we fell in love.
You have been together for 13 years, what has kept your union strong and firm?
First of all, we have God in our life. We are good friends, so we talk much. We communicate very well with each other. We also play much. We don’t have normal routine of husband and wife. We have fun together and we are very fond of each other. To crown it all, I respect my husband a lot.
I respect what he stands for.
What has kept your marriage?
God, He is very present in our marriage. We just keep it real with each other.
What does it take to be married to a celebrity?
It takes much discipline on the part of the man. You also have to have God on your side.
This is because when you are going through challenges, what you need most is your God. Keep your issues private. Don’t make your fight public; don’t bring friends into your home. Keep your marriage between you and your husband.
