Nigerian actor Gbnero Ajibade was stolen away by beautiful actress and beauty queen, Osas Ighodaro. The duo met and fell in love while on the set of Tinsel, just like Damilola Adegbite and Chris Atoh among others.
While the actor is yet to convince many that his marriage to Osas is not about the ‘green card’, so many Nigerians are having doubts that the marriage wouldn’t last long.
In a recent interview with punch, the actor disclosed that despite the fact that his wife’s family is on his neck, he is yet to get his green card because he isn’t ready.
Disclosing more, the father of one said himself and Osas had already tied the knot via court wedding in the US for two years before the public got to know they were dating.
He said: “It is funny how people think. I and Osas had been legally married in a court in the US two years even before the public knew we were going out. If I had wanted green card, I would have done it since but I felt it would be a distraction. I didn’t marry her because of that.”
On how they met, the actor revealed that he was in a relationship and osas who was his friend as at that time, would drop him off at his girlfriend’s house.
Over time, they became close and they developed feelings for each other which eventually led to a serious relationship and marriage followed.
In his words: “Osas was my friend. The first time she came into the country, she even used to drop me off at my girlfriend’s house. We were that close up until the time we became really close. We had mutual interest and she had my back. Then, I had faced so many injuries from back stabbing and snitches. Our friendship is what has been keeping us going.”
