I met him in Nigeria through a friend at an event. From there, we became close friends. I became pregnant and we got married
immediately. Everything happened in a very short time. A lot of people
thought it wasn’t going to work but at that moment, I knew I felt
something I had never felt with anyone in my life and I said to myself,
why not take that chance? I’m quite prayerful , so I knew there’s no way
I could err, though I never planned getting married
so early. I had so many dreams of what I wanted in life. Marriage was
the last thing on my mind. It happened so fast and I thought I should
give it a shot.
On what attracted him to him
When we first met, I didn’t know who he is really. He
didn’t know that I was the most beautiful girl in Nigeria. When I knew
he was a footballer, I said to myself this relationship might not work
or lead us anywhere, because of the lifestyle of some footballers who have so many girlfriends.
On any regrets marrying him
Not at all. No marriage can ever be perfect. Even my relationship with
my mum can never be perfect. I have never regretted any moment with my
husband and I always say to my sisters and cousins that I don’t know
what I could have been without my husband. I wondered the kind of man I
would have ended up with if I didn’t marry him. I thank God that He
planned my life and I’m living the life He planned for me. God has been
gracious to me in every way.
