July 28, 2017 – Iya Rainbow’s Son Confesses “I Married A White Lady To Make Life Easy For Me In London Like Most Nigerians”

Most Nigerian Men Marry British Ladies For Papers – Nollywood Actress Mama Rainbow’s Son Femi Philips Confesses

Excerpt of veteran Nollywood actress Iya Rainbow’s son, Femi Phillips recent interview with City People Magazine.

How Did Your Journey To The UK Started?

When I got to the UK, what I met wasn’t what I expected. The school fees were very prohibitive. I paid the first installment and I couldn’t afford the subsequent ones. I have to work to pay the fees. Along the line, I couldn’t believe that all the money I had been paying, if you have their papers or you marry a British lady, you would not need to pay a dime. You would be attending the school free and the authorities would also be paying you. Can you imagine that? So, later, I met a British lady in my church, we got married and my story changed. She presented me well to the authorities and I got my papers and I continued my studies.

What was your mum’s reaction when you told her you had married a white woman?

I was asking mama to send me some money for my school fees. Between the 2 of us, we knew that there was no money in the Nigerian movie industry especially in the Yoruba genre. We have many icons in the industry who don’t have the money and people think they do. My mum couldn’t pay the money because I was talking about nine million Naira per session and that is 17,000 pounds. The school authorities believed you were okay before you could come to their country to study, but they allowed us to work for hours and also come to school, it wasn’t easy at all. All these money we are talking about, if you marry their daughter, they would be doing it for free for you and they would be paying you for studying in their country.

That was why most Nigerian men used to marry British ladies to make things easy . I told my mum after I did it. I knew my mum wouldn’t agree if I had told her earlier because she is a pastor and she knew my fiancée in Nigeria before I travelled, who really understood me. I told her my movement and she supported me.

Only God understands the way He does his things. The white woman (my wife) was a type, who used to sleep at home today, sleep at the club, the following day, drinking and smoking all the time, which were against my wish. I don’t smoke and I don’t drink alcohol either.

That was the way we were brought up. From boarding house to church. Myself and the white lady were not compatible and we got separated after a while. The journey was so rough, but I thank God for where I find myself today. All I have in mind now is how to make sure that things are put in place in my father’s industry.

How were you able to continue your education after you parted ways with your white wife?

Once you have your papers, they can’t collect it back from you. We were married for 3 years and I had got my papers. The white people would appreciate you more, if you have a good job in their country because you are adding value to their economy.

If my salary is 1,500 pounds and I pay 500 pounds tax, would you want me to leave your state? That is exactly what happened.

    Listen Femi the pot that is calling the kettle black, when you know your wife sleeping out today and drinking all the time that was when you should have left her and move on. You don’t need to climb the ladder and break the linage for other people with your comment. It’s not too late for you to renounce your papers. Some Nigerian are still marry to British and their marriage is still very much intact. These are the comment British embassy sees and make things difficult for other people.

      Ken please re-read the article. He claims his fiancee in Nigeria was comfortable with him doing arrangee to get British citizenship. I’m British-Nigerian and I can tell you I’ve had a lot of abuse because of people like this Iya Rainbow’s son.

    Some of you lie to the Americans as well, pretend to care and have a wife or fiancée back home and when you get your green card you head back there for that love one! I have a friend who was deceived by a Nigerian, she was nice to him and after he got his green card he fled! I’ve been asked to do that and I plainly said no, I will not do it!!

    HAHAHAHAHA! “From boarding school to Church, that’s how we mom is a Pastor” Oh really? Yet you did arrangee? Nigerian men (****** demons) are extremely manipulative! Plus, he claims they can’t take their papers back? HAHA! Let someone call the Home Office’s attention to this article and watch what happens Femi Phillips. After you get your British passport you’re claiming the women who “sorted you out” was in and out of nightclubs! I’m speechless to say the least

    Am not sure which planet he lives in and how is education as helped him with his incriminating comment ” I told her my movement and she supported me” so he is basically saying he told his fiancé that he would be pretending to be in love and marry for his resident permit? Wonderful! Very smart indeed.

    His citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain in UK could be revoked if it can be shown that it was obtained by way of deception or fraudulently. This clown just admitted his mother would not have agreed to it’ and his fiancé supported him in knowingly deceiving a woman into marriage inorder to avoid paying his school fees as he or his family cannot afford to pay. hmmmm UKBA una don hear him. You think you have done your own and whoever is currently in such state or would be in such state should be blocked right? Continue….

    I am highly disappointed in your response (s) to the interview questions but I respect your mum a lot because she is wise.

    Femi or whatever your name is. You are such a liar, even UK born children in University do take student loan to finance their education here in UK. I have two sons in UK university at the moment and their school fees is never even £25,000 per session. where did you get your own figure from?. Apart from that, you are such a fraud minded person for marrying a British lady in other to finance your education, if UKBA should find this out, be rest assured you will find yourself in jail and your citizenship revoked. You should be ashamed of yourself saying these out knowing your mum’s status in Nigeria. YOU ARE SUCH A FOOL.

    I am very sure this man did not say all these things. He’s not stupid. What is his pride? Haters write many things to spoil people’s lives on social media. Believe me.
