July 23, 2015 – Kemi Afolabi Confirms Secret Wedding, Narrates How She Met Her London-Based Husband, Wale Adesipe

See excerpts from a recent interview with Nollywood actress Kemi Afolabi

There was a time you left the industry, what happened?

I left the industry a few years ago; I did that to manifest the responsible part of me. No matter who I am or what I do, my reason for going off the scene is very vital in the life of every responsible lady, which is marriage. I had my engagement ceremony and after that I travelled to meet my partner in London.

Where did the wedding take place?

I didn’t want a big party for myself, so I didn’t make noise about it. The engagement held at my father’s house in Okota, Lagos State, though a very quiet one. My husband is based in UK, so I went to him to start our lives afresh. I had a baby girl in the UK. Shortly after the engagement, I got pregnant and I went to put to bed in the UK. At the moment, the girl is in the country with me, I mean my daughter. You know, visiting her mother’s country for the first time.

When will the wedding proper come up?

It was a low key event. I am not a loud person, we had a quiet one, and we have been joined together as husband and wife.

Do you mean the wedding has taken place?

I wouldn’t call it a secret wedding because I invited a number of people to attend the occasion, and there were my parents and his too in attendance. The reason being that I don’t want a big party for myself. I and my husband decided to invite only very important people to grace the occasion.

Why did you opt for having the baby in the UK?

Naturally, when you get married as a responsible Yoruba girl, you are expected to stay with your husband wherever he is, and that was what I did. Though it wasn’t easy because I left my job and other things I do here to be with him but I eventually coped.

Tell us about your husband?

My husband is a very quiet person. His job doesn’t entail noise like mine. He’s a kind of guy who has so much interest in education. He’s an engineer, a building contractor for that matter.

How did you meet and fall in love with each other?

We met in Ibadan through a friend of mine, who was having her engagement ceremony at the time. After that, we boarded the same plane when I was travelling, and he said to me when were airborne, ‘‘I want you to have my kids’’ I looked at him and I just smiled, but because I saw the seriousness of heart in him, I gave in to his advances, and that was how we started.kemi afolabi husband

Now that you are back in the country, what are you involved in especially as an actress?

When I was in UK, I never worked because I dedicated my time to my husband, but while I was doing nothing, I wrote a couple of scripts because I decided to return into acting with something big. Normally, when I write my scripts, it usually focuses on things around me, around us, I mean societal issues. There’s a particular movie I shot, ‘‘ Ajiloda’’ though, that is just the working title, it’s a story about things that happen in the UK, as well as Nigeria and I saw it as an opportunity to pass a message across to my society. I shot part of the movie UK, and the concluding part was shot here in Nigeria. Ajiloda is a story of a man who got a ‘‘sword’’ but to use it is a big problem for him.

How has your husband been able to keep the marriage, considering the many controversies in the industry?

I thank God for the kind of man he gave me. He is a God fearing man. He met me through this job and ever since, he has been supportive. When I was shooting my flick in the UK, he took a week off work to drive my crew. That’s to show the love because he understands the job very well. He knows that anytime he calls me and I didn’t pick my call then I am on set and he’s doing that because he loves and trusts me. Hr drives my crew because I don’t drive in London and shooting abroad is not like what we do here. Some actors in the UK don’t take it as their major work, so as my husband, he gave all I needed to have a successful movie production.

    Congrats Kemi, I really like you on screen. I have watched your few movies and I can boldly tell you can act and you are right in the perfect profession. My real concern is about how you are going to keep your stardom and your marriage. I don’t normally see it the way other people see it when it comes to how Nollywood girls are being promiscuous. To my understanding, Stardom can bring a lot of negativity as well as taking you to the topmost. If you want to balance your home and your job, you really have to put extra effort to hold on to this which I know is very difficult to accomplish especially when you are in long distance relationship. Only few actresses that I know successfully kept on to this finally let go their acting carrier. Kemi, except if you want to be working with your husband producing movies or your hubby managing your career directly, there is no way you can erase false accusation , infidelity and so on. For example, there are other people out there who appreciate you just like your husband appreciate you and it may happen that one of them may a noble person such as Governor, Minister even a President of the federal republic. Imagine one of them walks up to you in an occasion and tell you Kemi I love your movie and I want to fund any of your movie just come and see me in the office that is it. If anybody sees you at Governors office there is no amount of explanation you can give that you are not dating governor . Things happen you may not be interested but you may be tempted. However, you may still have a solid agreement between you and your husband and still have a good relationship but I know the negativity in stardom outweigh the advantage in terms of keeping relationship. Anyway good luck in all your endeavors.
