Fuji star Adewale Ayuba granted an interview to GoldmyneTV on his 50th birthday.

The happily married father of three narrated how he met his Onitsha-born wife, Azukaego Kwentoh and why he will spend the rest of his life with her.

See interview excerpts below:

What’s the secret of your youthful look at 50?

After my God, it’s my wife. People keep asking but I don’t do anything extraordinary. Why I said my wife is because she gives me peace at home. When I think of my home, I am always happy.

You have being married for 26 years, can you tell us what attracted you to an Igbo woman many years ago?

Well, we got married in 1989. My wife is 100 percent Igbo. I never knew she was Nigerian let alone being Igbo. I was at the cafeteria after my registration in New York, chatting with some of my friends, then I sighted a lady coming and I tapped my friends that I just found a wife. My friends started laughing at me. For no reason, she came to where I was, to talk to some of my friends. She said they were forming an association of Nigerian students in diaspora in your school and she wanted to know if we were Nigerians.

What was the attraction?

I can’t even say I knew it. It was a mere statement as at that time which later came to pass. I just knew I saw her and something struck a chord in me.

Did she know you were a musician as at that time?

No, she didn’t. My wife had never been to Nigerian before. She stayed all her live abroad until later that she had to obtain her visa here.

Why will you never marry two wives?

If you cannot allow your wife to have two husbands, why do you have to marry two wives? It was not even stipulated that a man must marry two wives in the holy Quran because it has a condition statement ‘’if’’.

Many Fuji artiste marry more than one wife, why are you so different?

I don’t now, but I think when God gives you your own bone, why marry a second wife? Blessings follow marriage. It is not about music but about the person.

    A friend of mine who resides in New York even told me if I met the right Igbo woman, I probably would never entertain my tribe’s ladies around me for the rest of my life. Ayuba, you have made the right choice and its all the reason you’ve found happiness. God continue to bless your marriage.

    After reading this great interview, I will tag Adewale Ayuba (Mr. Johnson) has the most responsible, smart,and a great family man among all Yoruba popular musicians. Why? First, he reasons and talk like someone who cherishes happy family and one who truly love his beautiful wife for the best of the best reasons-peace and true love. Secondly, he had shown most ignorant Nigerians that marrying a good woman from other tribe is not a bad idea as long as true love, cordial relationship, and understanding bind the couple together in their marriage. In addition to that, his three children are highly blessed because they are not a product of polygamy. I think tribalism, religious intolerance, and other demonic barriers that have created unnecessary division and hatred among Nigerian people that threatened our unity and prosperity will fade away with time if we encourage our children to marry godly, well cultured, good and a loving woman from other tribes in this nation. After all, The Bible says, “he that findth a wife, find a good thing and a favor from the Lord.” Meaning a highly favored Yoruba man like Mr. JOHNSON can find a great wife from Igbo tribe. Likewise, an Igbo man like P Square brother can find a good wife-Omotayo from Yoruba tribe. Honestly, I am proud of you guys. Keep it up.

    It doesn’t matter the tribe where the woman comes from, if God give a man a good wife the man is bless for the rest of his life, and if the man treats and respect his wife the man will see a good side of the woman but if the man is not a good man that respect his wife in the public or provide her need then he would know that woman is not nice at all. Woman takes care of the man that takes care and respects them.
