‘I was Just At 24 Years and a nobody when I met and married my wife’ – Bolanle Ninalowo reveals
Nearly 20 years into a relationship that has had its ups and downs like any other, Bunmi, a successful businesswoman, and Bolanle Ninalowo, a well-known Nollywood actor and producer, continue to be a source of immense affection.
He said : “Bunmi is my treasure from God. Only God can bless a man with such a jewel. I saw her in a mall 19 years ago and it’s been never to let go ever since despite our shortcomings. You can say I recognised a blessing at first sight. Our families were very supportive. Our relationship was quite similar to that of our parents, having met each other in their youth as well. They gave us their blessings and supported us whole-heartedly.
I first encountered Bunmi when I was a zero. I was just 24 when I started looking for myself and my life’s purpose. We have been a blessed family when I was just a kobo, and we are still together today. Although their continual displays of devotion may give the impression of an ever-rosy love story, the two never fail to make it clear that this isn’t the case. The couple, who are gifted with two adorable children, through a two-year separation but clearly came out stronger, leading a love life that serves as a continual point of inspiration.
Bolanle Ninalowo, a proud father of two, commented on the 19-year voyage by saying: “There is no shortcut to someplace worth going in life, and you can’t have a destination without a journey. So far, ours has served as a testimonial. Due to the fact that we persevered despite everything and found purpose in each other, our relationship is successful today.
Award-winning actor Bolanle Ninalowo also discussed how he keeps the romance and pleasure in his marriage alive.
“By doing the most together. We work out together, we strive to look our best for each other, and Bunmi doesn’t hesitate to keep looking extremely beautiful day after day. We try to keep the fire burning by re-enacting our past pleasures. Sometimes, we like being spontaneous and simply go with the flow. I have learnt to be her father, brother and confidant all day and every day. We have grown inseparable and are a unit where we almost can’t function without each other.”
