The marriage of one of the blessings to Nollywood, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde clocks 17 years today, Saturday, March 23, 2013. The day also doubles as the birthday of her husband, Captain Mathew Ekeinde.
The two lovebirds have remained strong as if they just met each other. Their marriage has become a model to many not only in Nigeria alone but throughout out the world.
This can best be explained when world class magazine, OK Nigeria, a franchise of OK magazine, profiled Omotola and her hubby as celebrity couples who still have very strong marriages built on love. They were profiled alongside President Obama and wife; Jay Z and Beyonce; and few others.
For Omotola, there is no better way to proclaim her love to the man that has stood by her than to let the world know about that man. She used the opportunity to reaffirm her love for Captain Ekeinde who she describes "a father, mentor, teacher, friend and trusted companion."
The president of Osexynations, as her teeming fans call her, said, "please indulge me a few moments to appreciate this man. There are boys and there are men. Capt Matthew Ekeinde, you are a good MAN.
"I lost my father and as an only daughter, I craved a strong man in my life. You came, became a father, mentor, teacher, friend and trusted companion.
"We live life only once! I could live mine twice just so I say I lived it again with you great friend! I love you dearly and cherish your love.
"We struggled through nothing. Days of very little together, we believed. A God fearing man, you taught me the ways of the Lord. Today, I am better for it."CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OMOTOLA AND HUBBY
