“I Didn’t Marry My American Wife For Green Card” – Nollywood Actor Defends Self
Nollywood actor Bigvai Jokotoye has opened up on why he did a secret wedding in California last month.
The actor was forced to open up after fans accused him of marrying for American green card.
“We met last year and we got talking before we fell in love with each other. We actually prayed about it and our families met. Now, we are married. We started dating since last year, almost a year now. Her attitude and meekness got me attracted to her in the first place. She is a well-trained woman who is very religious with the fear of God which is the most important thing on earth. When you meet a partner that fears GOD, you should be rest assured of a happy home. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
She is from Ijebu Mushin, Ogun State and the first born of her family. When we presented ourselves to our families, they were happy and they supported us. I wooed her when we started talking on phone; I talked to her like a normal man would do. Though, she knew I am an actor, she has never discouraged me. She works with California State Government as a nurse. I didn’t meet her in the USA like what some bloggers are writing, I can’t rush into such marriage, People are saying a lot of rubbish but I kept mute. How can I meet her in the USA when I did my introduction in Nigeria? We met in Nigeria before she traveled.
She was born in USA but we met in Nigeria during one of her visits. I did a secret wedding because It’s been my dream as a child. My close friends know I always tell GOD I want a low key wedding, I hate parties and that is why you don’t normally see me at functions. My Parents tried to encourage me but I never wanted an elaborate wedding. Now, I have done my wedding and nothing again”.
The Nollywood actor reportedly dumped his girlfriend in Nigeria for the California-based nurse.
