Nollywood actress, scriptwriter, director and producer, Omoni Oboli, is celebrating 16 years of marriage to her author and counsellor husband.
And a fulfilled Nnamdi Oboli has nothing but lovely words for the woman he married while was still 22.
“I didn’t do anything to deserve the wife God gave me,” Mr Oboli wrote in an Instagram post on Friday.
One of the most visible Nollywood husbands, Nnamdi, who was at the Toronto International Film Festival for the screening of his wife’s Okafor’s Law, said the 38-year-old “still keeps me totally ravaged.”
It’s our 16th Anniversary!!! ???❤️ I didn’t do anything to deserve the wife God gave me But His mercy endures forever! I couldn’t have foreseen the joy of the life I now see But His mercy endures forever! I wished for her in the normal far-from-obtainable fashion But His mercy endures forever! I prayed for a beauty queen and not this improved version But His mercy endures forever! I could have walked a thousand aisles and still miss this joy of 16 years But His mercy endures forever! I could’ve trampled on this precious pearl waiting for the perfect ‘yes!’ But His mercy endures forever! I know love doesn’t always come to many in a golden box, well packaged But His mercy endures forever! So I celebrate our love-filled union with my wife that still keeps me totally ravaged But His mercy endures forever! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DARLING ????❤️ #omonioboli #happyanniversary #thankyouLord #16yearsandcounting
In her own message, Omoni asked “Do you know what today is?”
Writing on a throwback picture of the pair, she continued “It’s our anniversary. It’s been 16 years baby! About 17 from this picture when you came to see me on one of your many weekend trips to Uniben.”
