Not just a few people were surprised when
the news of the engagement between Made Men Music Group big boy, Ubi
Franklin and actress, Lillian Esoro, hit the Internet earlier in the

In fact, the two had not been identified
as a couple before now, so it came as a shock that both of them were in a
relationship let alone, getting engaged.
In a chat with Saturday Beats earlier in
the week, Ubi, who confirmed he was engaged to Lillian, said he didn’t
know the babe was an actress when he asked her out.
He said, “When I met her, I did not even
know she was an actress. That is something people do not know. I hardly
watch television these days because of my schedule, so there are a lot
of movie stars I do not know. Whenever I want to relax, I watch movies
on my laptop. The first day I met her, she did not tell me she was an
actress and I didn’t know till about a week later.”
Ubi said he was shocked when he later found out.
“I called her to ask and she told me she
was an actress but preferred to keep a low profile. She said she does
not like too much attention and all she wants is due diligence. She is
not one of those actresses that seek for attention.”
Talking about how he broke up with his
ex, Ubi said, “Things were not working because I believe that you should
be where you would be happy for the rest of your life. I asked God that
I needed a woman to marry and settle down with. After I prayed about it
for about a week, I met Lillian at a friend’s party. The day I met her,
I saw the qualities I wanted in a woman I want to be with for the rest
of my life.”
While some guys may run away from getting hooked in marriage with an actress, Ubi said he has no problem with that.
“I have no problem with her career.
Everybody works hard to earn a living and as far as she is happy with
what she does, that is the most important thing to me. All I want to do
is to help her improve on whatever she is doing and also support her,”
he said.
“The marriage would definitely be this
year in Nigeria. I am not a fan of marrying abroad. I have nothing
against people that do it but the truth is many people that ought to
come and pray for you would not make it if you travel out of the
country,” he said.
