Comedian and actor, Okey Bakassi, on Monday, posted a collage of pictures celebrating his 18th wedding anniversary.
In his Instagram post, he described his wife, Ezinne, as a good woman.
“My darling girlfriend of 31 years, on the 1st of September 2001 we, in the presence of God, family and friends became Husband & Wife. Wow! It’s our 18th anniversary….it’s been loads of blessings and divine favours…because I found a good woman.
“My darling Zizi, thanks for saying YES to an engineer turned comedian leaving in a boy’s quarters in Festac. I promised we’ll make it and God answered…. 18yrs gone and forever more to come. I still love you like that day in that uncompleted building in PH GRA 😂❤,” he wrote.
According to his post, Okey Bakassi has known Ezinne for 31 years and they are blessed with three children, two girls and a boy. His wife and children live in Canada.
In a chat with Punch, Okey admitted that it had not been easy staying away from his family. He said, “The reason I do a tour in Canada is to be close to my wife and kids since they live there. Of course, my family wants me to be with them every day and they always express that. But they also understand that I need to focus on the demands of my job. Do not forget that they come to Nigeria as well; I don’t announce it whenever they visit.”
