July 7, 2015 – Comedian Okey Bakassi Talks Romance With Shan George, Narrates How He Met His Wife
Excerpt from recent chat with comic actor Okey Bakassi.
How I met my wife
I got married in 2001. I got married to my high school sweet heart. We met in 1988. At a point, we grew apart but when it was time to settle down, I gravitated towards her, because she loves me. They live in Canada and staying apart from them has been the most challenging part of my life. It hurts sometimes. But the motivating factor is the quest to give them a good life, the one I was not privileged to have. But in all these, my wife has been very loving. That is why it is good to stay with your friend. It works but I won’t encourage anyone to experiment it.
My Affair With Nollywood Actress Shan George
People refer to this as if she is the only person I ever knew in my life. I guess it is because she is in Nollywood. Let me say that we do not see, save from a few occasions we have run into each other at the airport. From what I read in the papers, she is doing well, and life has been good to me as well. We were never enemies and we will never be.
