When Musa Danjuma got married to one of the Nollywood finest faces in Nigeria, Caroline Uduak Abasi Ekanem, the entire movie kingdom could not hide their feelings of the age gap between them. The hubby is several years older than the latter.

News flying left, right and centre that the soft-spoken Carol is no longer enjoying every bit of her marriage due to the fact that the man, Musa, no doubt, is spoiling her silly with gifts and love, on the ground of over possessiveness on the part of the hubby. Caroline Ekanem, we were informed, has just moved out of her few years old marriage and now hibernates at one of her actress friends in Lagos.

Though, the said crack in her marriage does not hold ground as some close pals of the beautiful, slim and sexy actress confirmed to us that her marriage is still intact and there has never been a moment she threatened or think of moving out of her matrimonial bed. Well, we are still pressing further to unravel every coded detail in the marriage.

Older men
Meme | 8/17/2009 10:38:35 PM | Right -Here
Marriage to a man who is over 15years older doesnt really go down well. Especially, if the man is tall and fat.

There is no way he can satisfy his wife sexually. It is worse if he has a stomach of a 9 months pregnant woman.

Older men generally cannot perform, talkless of satisfying a young wife. Money is not everything in life.
I am sure they have not had any child from the marriage, bcos after a busy day, Danjuma probably comes home exhausted. At night he sleeps like a log of wood. I wont be surprised if he snores too. How disgusting!!!!!!!!!

Since he cant perform, he has no choice than to spoil her with gifts, but monitor her.
Anyway, Caroline is still young. Her chances of remarrying is very high.

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone' unless, ofcourse, they believe they have never wronged. My advice to u mrs Danjuma is to stay well clear of people who have never walked in your shoes and make themselves feel better by making you feel bad about yourself.

Ekanem Is Not s****d
Emeka | 8/18/2009 2:57:28 AM
Before members of this forum continue to make comments about Ekanem's marriage, may I suggest that they first ponder the following questions and answers I provided below.

1. How old was Caroline Ekanem when she got married ---Answer: At least 20

2. Was she blindfolded or suffering from dimentia on her wedding day? Answer: No

3. How many times did Ekanem sleep with Danjuma before they got married? Answer: At least once

4.Do we really know why Ekanem married Danjuma? Answer: We think we do but probably don't

5. Is the writer of this article sure that the marriage has crumbled? Answer: No

6. If Danjuma's marriage were to crumble today, will he still have a pool of young beautiful women queuing to be picked as his new wife? Answer: Probably yes


I hope from now on we can have a more mature discussion of Ekanem's marriage.

caroline is married to Musa Danjuma and not theophlus Danjuma and her marriage is very much intact. Age has nothing to do with any marriage that will fail or succeed. If any thing, Older and matured men handle marital issue more maturedly.

ls quite unfortunate that,things are going this way,let me state here categorically that,any relationship or marriage that is base on wealth or money will not and can never survived.Be what it may,when the fellow goes bankrupt also the love,because the affair was purely base on materialism.Come to think of it,is the -in-thing in nollywood where actresses now compete with one another to get married to older men who are twice their age because of what they can benefit from them,not putting into cognisance that,there are other aspect that cannot be overlooked(sexual aspect).To me, this is absolutely disgusting and disgraceful when a woman starting having an extra-marital affair outside her marriage.

Onome,i do not agree wit you dat one should consider the sexual aspect b/4 marriage.I'l keep saying dat abstinence is always the best.If she married n the first place without doing the thing,then,she absolutely has no choice but to accept her hubby as she get am.It's only if she don't do wey she go dey complain.

older di better
maya | 8/19/2009 11:09:22 PM
i could marry a man 15 years my elder!
what di heck ? being younger doesn't make u a master of whatever......
Some young men will never get it.
So if really her marriage is rocky,why conclude its cuz her man is much older and on sexual incompatibility.
All marriage go thru heaven and hell and the earlier pple realise that,the better the world will be.
You, the reporter have u counted how many times ya mama ran away from her own matrimonial home?
Please !leave these kids live their lives and face their trials and tribulations like everyone else.
All these untimely conclusions on actors lives is getting out of hand.
Be constructive in reporting and get facts straight before even thinking of sharing.
Is not cuz hollywood is doing it that makes it RIGHT.......

FUSEBOX | 8/21/2009 12:33:53 PM
Am seriously surprised at most of the comments, because age per say has nothing to do with marriage
except in cases where the individuals got involved for selfish reasons.
Older men, i mean not too old can actually handle the childishness, imaturities & inject some descency
into the unison therefore creating the premise for what it takes for such friendship to last forever.
Once again check the divorce rate of recent years and you will agree with me that olmost 97% of the cases has to do with uncompromising attitudes and the fact that both couples are too wise to allow the other partner to be the head of the family which of course boils down to age differences.
Pls take a thaught from my piece.
So long.

Less i forget, one of the reasons why Adam was created first was to gain some experince from those animals that were paired by The All kmowing God before Eve's arrival.
And even then look at the kind of edge Eve had in the politics of the garden of Eden. A little bit of f*****hness on the part of one partner, trust me makes it wonderfully. I mean just a litle bit of bit is good for the home.
So long.

Yes a little bit of f*****hness makes it wonderful, in fact too much I too know leads to divorce and after wards, regret.

Sometimes its not money, so y'all judging should quit. My fiance is 50 and am 22, Yes 22. I am not from a poor family at all. I feel wonderful discussing and rubbing minds with him.He is very intelligent so am I. Am definitely enjoying the relationship like never before. And the sex? Fantastic! I love him to death. So y'all making your boring self feel better by judging......SHUT THE F UP!

Carol and musa were fake. Musa has 15 children and six of the children are older than carol. What do you expect? She found already made home, did she think it was easy when orignial owner of house left bhcause of musa's womanising! Good luck to her. she is treated like a stranger in the house and always attacking house help. Carol respect your elders as this marriage is going nowhere watch this space. She is rude and musa beats her black and blue but her mother advisers her to stay as carol is her piece meal. for how long? Musa is fit to marry the mother.

Did you know that during the christening of one of her sons carol tried to kill musa with a knife. Muss brought a white girl friend to the party and was busy kissing the girl when carol was told she went c***y and took a knife to kiss musa. What a shame when you appear inthe papers as a happy couple when there is no relationship between them. ~How long will this gon on. whatch this space.
