January 11, 2016 – Ibinabo Fiberesima Reveals Marriage Success Secrets, Says Eba & Pepper Soup Is Her Favourite Food
See excerpts from sacked AGN President Ibinabo Fiberesima’s recent chat with Daily Telegraph
Your marriage just clocked one year a while back, how is the experience being married again?
Being married is sweet and good most especially when you are married to the one you love, who understands you and wants the best for you at all time. As you can see I am glowing and will continue to glow.
So what kind of wife are you?
I’m a good one who thinks of her family at all time and wants the best for her man and kids. I am that kind of wife that I don’t indulge in what my husband is not supportive of. Whatever you see me wear outside my house is what I have rocked in grand style in the presence of my husband. When you see me on bum shorts, I rock them well, whether long or short at home.
What is your routine like?
Even if I tell you, you people will laugh. I wake up in the morning, I eat eba. Before I sleep, I eat Eba and pepper soup. It’s my favourite food and I can have it as many times as I want to in a day.
Let’s talk about motherhood
Motherhood? It’s wonderful; my kids are all grownups now.
You were once attacked on social media for exposing your daughter to early make-up; how did you feel when you saw the comments?
Sincerely I smiled and the fact is let them ‘born their own’ and do the one they want to do. I have given birth to my own and this is what I want to do with my own. That’s how life is, eh! They should stop advising me on motherhood, you hear? Let them try it and then they will understand that when a child wants something so badly, you will do it just to make that child smile and be happy.
What are your fresh plans for 2016?
I will leave that to the grace of God. Wherever he leads me and that’s where I will be.
So what has changed about you since you got married?
I am more accommodating, there is so much I’m learning being married. I’m enjoying it totally.
Let’s talk about the guild, there have been rancor from some parties, can you shed more light on it?
There is no rancor in the guild. You see people get confused with tell tales, people just like lie. Did you ever go for an election where Emeka Ike took part in? So how is he the president of AGN? That’s the only question I have for the press because you are giving him audience to talk. Did he run for any position in Actors Guild of Nigeria? No he didn’t!
With all the argument, don’t you think settling things amicably is the best thing to do between the two of you?
We have tried! But it all fell on deaf ears.
