During this period, she regularly appeared in his movies, and she was very helpful to him as a scriptwriter. Their relationship was one which everyone thought would lead to the altar but in 2011, Stanley got married to his old love named Chinasa Agu,a native of Imo state, Nigeria, who worked in an insurance company.

It was reported that they had a secret marriage in Igbo-Etiti, Enugu State, Nigeria. The marriage was attended by close friends and relatives of Stanley. It was later said that Ruth didn’t know about this, and was devastated when she eventually found out. However, Stanley openly debunked that.

He said in an interview, that he didn’t dump the actress Ruth Kadiri. According to him, the rumours that Ruth didn’t know about his marriage was false. He said she was fully in support of his marriage. He even went further to say that she is still his good friend, and he was with her, before he travelled for his traditional marriage, and his marriage was not secret.

He said people should learn to be quiet on matters they don’t understand, as it causes confusion. Furthermore to debunking the rumour of having a secret marriage, he announced the date of his white wedding, and invited the rumour spreaders.

      Dear Ruth.
      Welldone for your acting o. I have always loved watching you act but I am sorry you didn’t get it all right in ‘Love Me” o.
      It sickens me how you and Jola’s mum handled Dennis Matter. It really shows that none of you loved Jola, not you as his wife nor the mum as his mother.
      No woman handles the case of a husband and child that way.Its soo bad that Dennis even ended up sleeping with you. I stopped watching the movie from that particular episode where Dennis slept with you and made Jola watch you both do the nonsense from where he was incarcerated.
      So, you could not hit something on his head and run outside?
      I liked that film before until you started this Season 3.
      Why did you not just end it at Season 2?
