Nigerian superstar Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has said the only man on earth who can handle her is her husband—the man she got married to when she was just 18 years and a student.
“I don’t think there is any man that can handle me apart from my husband. Not because I am a bad person, it is because I have a very strong personality. I can understand why a lot of female artistes find it very difficult to find the right person,” Omotola told Vanguard.
The Nigerian actress is very popular in Ghana and many of her fans have keenly followed stories about her husband, Captain Matthew Ekeinde.
The beautiful actress threw further light on what she meant: “When you achieve some kind of success, you become really confused as to who really loves you for who you are. It’s not really easy; it is very hard finding those people who really love you.
“If you are not a very grounded person, you can also contribute in some kind of way to your own problems and so I might have contributed to my own problems.”
Omotola melted a lot of hearts during the 17th anniversary of her marriage in 2013 when she posted a rather emotional tribute to the man on her Twitter account.
The series of tweets from the actress read: “17 yrs ago, on your birthday we got married! I remember it like yesterday. The Best Husband, Best Father and My Best Friend. Life with U is fun!”
“Happy Birthday to my Honey Boy, Capt Matthew Ekeinde, and Happy Marriage Anniversary to Us. It’s 17 years already? God is good.”
“Pls 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 n as an only daughter, I craved a strong man in my life. U 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 2gether, we believed. A God-fearing man, u taught me d ways of the Lord, 2day am better for it.”
