Oh well… not so Throwback cos its still less than a week 🙂
I’ve been getting so many wonderful messages and feedback about the ThisDay Style Cover which I shared with my husband on Sunday and I just want to say a big THANK YOU!!! You’ve been too kind with your warm wishes and I am so overwhelmed and so grateful.
I know I should have shared these photos with my blog readers earlier *covers face*. I hope you forgive me for bringing it late. Perhaps, these excerpts from our interview, for those who didn’t get to read the paper, will make you less upset. We spoke about how we met, our marriage and much more…
On how we met
I met Stephanie while doing some Business Consulting work for a Middle Eastern Company that wanted to berth in Africa; they needed an African female celebrity ambassador for their brand; Liya Kebede from Ethiopia and Stephanie were the two candidates on tab for the role; so I reached out to her; So yeah…it was “Love for Business at First Sight”.
On how he copes with being married to a Superstar actress
Being married to her is an ever glowing experience; a tale I some day, would write a book about; Stephanie is an absolute blessing! A loving, selfless, patient, positive being; someone I have made my lifelong pursuit to make her truly happy because her heart is in the right place. It is one thing to say you believe in someone; it’s another to live it. We are friends, lovers, husband and wife.
On social media pressure
Pressure from fans and the likes comes with the territory; it’s even worse now with the advent of new social media, if it’s not PINGS, it’s Instagram likes, if it’s not that, it’s Facebook beeps, Twitter alerts or Linkedin invites. But it’s a world I understand, so for us, communication is key and that is what defines the boundaries of our relationship.

Selfless, Smart and Spirited
On what endeared me to my husband
He had a magnetic presence that was very captivating. He didn’t beat around the bush, he knew exactly what he wanted and was upfront about it, which I found charming and sexy!
Why he’s the one!
He is very tender and protective, a man’s man. He is sweet, humble, driven, has a close relationship with God, very loving and takes good care of me. We respect what we have and as a woman, when a man loves you, you just know. You know that you’re in it together, regardless of any situation. With him, there was a conviction in my heart that this is it.
