Popular Nigerian comedian and ex talk show host, Gbadewonuola Olateju Oyelakin aka Teju Babyface is a big advocate of the Biblical verse, he who finds a wife as found a good thing. He extolled the virtues of his wife and the support his career has gotten since he got married to Tobi Oyelakin in an interview with Nigerian tabloid, Vanguard.
Teju Babyface, who is also an actor, had this to say when he was asked to describe his wife:
“I married the best woman on earth. Sincerely, I got much more than I deserve in this regard. She is the best of all women. My marriage has improved my career and also made me responsible. My marriage is great and gets interesting as the day goes by. I fended and thought for myself as a single man. I was also a bit reckless then. I am more responsible as a married man. I am an expert when it comes to women and I know a good one. She is one of the good ones and I will always appreciate her. She was kept for me.”
He also talked about the unique traits of his wife that has kept him in love with her over the years.
“My wife is far from the traditional romantic woman, which is the exact reason I married her. She is not the type who would jump at a gift without knowing the reason behind it. She is a very serious minded type who does not really need a man before getting things right. She doesn’t crave for attention like many women do.”
Teju Babyface must be a lucky man as he recollects when they both forgot their wedding anniversary but his wife didn’t raise any hell like most ladies are prone to do. He said:
“There was a time we forgot our wedding anniversary and when we remembered, we laughed at it. I would not have lasted with a woman who will nag or sob at things like that. She is a strong woman. And that is the best romantic experience I enjoy with my wife.”
Well, with the whole marriage controversy surrounding the likes of Toyin AImakhu and “hubby” Adeniyi Johnson, it feels refreshing to know that not all celebrity marriages are as bad as they seem.
If you are in a relationship, note that its better to put a ring on it before you put a baby in the oven.
