Mercy Johnson’s Husband Opens Up On The Wife & 2 Kids He Abandoned In Canada
Excerpts from MJ’s hubby Prince Odianosen Okojie’s recent chat with Lanre Odukoya.
When did you meet you wife and how has your marriage been so far?
Prior to our marriage, I’d known my wife for three years; we actually met in 2008. We started living together in 2009 and we got married in 2011. It’s been God all the way, there’s no miracle or anything much, it’s just been God.
With marriage break-ups and celebrity dramas, I think it depends on what one wants. For me, when I met my wife, I knew she was the one for me.
The love, the affection and the tender care are all present, and although we might have some misunderstanding but when we sleep over it, we move on. My wife is my best friend, I hold her in high esteem and as a result of this, we don’t quarrel often. When we do, we learn from it and move to the next level.
Have you gone on for a day or night without talking? Sometimes when you are angry, do you want to sleep over it and not talk to her?
No! Never! I have a very big house, my wife has a very big room and so do I, but she has never spent the night in her room for one day.
Sometimes when I tease her and say ‘go to your room’, she tells me ‘this is our room not your room’ and so most times we are always together.
I have never experienced anything like this, my marriage to her is so sweet and I’m enjoying it to the fullest. Like I said, I won’t give the kudos to man but to God Almighty who has kept us in happiness, in peace and in harmony.
What kind of work do you do?
I am business man and I’ve been in business since 2006 since I got to Nigeria. I do oil and gas business, I work with the federal government on contract basis, I’m into transportation real estate. I’m a workaholic; I do any kind of business provided it’s legal. Any legitimate business that will fetch me money, I do it.
What is the longest time you have spent away from your wife?
I think about two to three weeks. I travel a lot and when I do, I’m usually in a hurry to return home. The longest time I’ve stayed abroad is three weeks, no matter what part of the world I’m in, in three weeks, I must be back home.
How did you feel when you were called an irresponsible father, and that you abandoned a lady and your kids abroad?
People will always talk, but the thing is, the people that know me know the truth. I am very responsible and I’m living up to it, so, I was not hurt.
How do you guys make up and move on when you quarrel?
She lives in my room, she’s there every time, even when she’s not; l miss her and call her to come, so we settle things there.
What’s your costliest fashion accessory?
I have a Rolex GMT-Master and I bought it for $26, 000 in Dubai. That was during our second or third year wedding anniversary.
