It has been a very long time I have done this; giving my personal opinion on any issue at hand. Few weeks ago, I wrote a story on Ini Edo being in a club but spotted leaving with a man. Her hubby, Philip Ehiagwina reacted to the story claiming it was untrue, which I published.
Of course, Ini is ‘our’ wife as my Ishan tradition says; her hubby and I are from the same tribe. On March 23, 2012, sexy actress, wife and mother of four, Omotola Jalade Ekeinde celebrated 16 years of marriage to her handsome husband, Captain Mathew Ekeinde.
For many, that was phenomena due to the fact that most Nollywood marriages don’t last that long before hitting the rocks. Little wonder ‘OK’ magazine celebrated the couple alongside President Obama of America, Jay Z and others in their first Nigerian version of the American magazine in 2012.
Some have said that Capt. Matthew should take the glory of keeping the marriage but it takes two to tango. The hands become clean when the two wash each other. A tree doesn’t make a forest.
Within 16 years of Omotola’s marriage, many scandals have been written about her but not a time has Capt. Matthew come out to say a word about them.
To some journalists, it is rather getting too much of Mr Philip Ehiagwina, the husband of Ini Edo reacting always to ‘unpleasant’ stories written about his wife.
Few years ago, he reportedly warned Nigerian journalists not to write any negative stories about his wife, Ini Edo. Doing that, according to what was reported, he would deal with such journalist. But questions that come to mind are, if he can’t handle a celebrity-wife, why not marry a ‘normal’ woman? If he were President Jonathan, would he have arrested all journalists that have written negative stories about his wife, Patience?
Why not take lessons from Capt. Matthew Ekeinde on how to manage a celebrity-wife? Or better still, learn not to react to negative stories about his sweet wife, Ini Edo as Capt. Matthew has done in the case of Omotola?
Don’t get me wrong here, I do not mean journalists should write untrue stories about people but when such are done, the law courts are there to handle such matters.
Remember the popular song by MI ft. 2Face. I rest my case…
