Nigerian comedian and talk-show host, Teju Babyface is in the best of moods right now. Teju and his wife Tobi who have been married for close to 6 years finally welcomed their first babies, a set of twins some weeks back. They have been over the moon since the birth of their twins.
Speaking in a recent chat with City People, Teju revealed that marriage has taken away most of his his indiscipline.
“ Marriage has taken away most of my indiscipline and has helped me to keep it on a strong leash. I was telling somebody yesterday that the reason why I try to be a faithful husband is not because I am holier or more righteous than most, there are several reasons. One of them is because I lack a sense of proportion, that is because I really don’t know how to do things in moderation. If I was a drinker, I would probably be drinking excessively.
But thank God alcohol doesn’t hold any interest for me. If I was a smoker I’ll probably smoke excessively. What I did do was that I liked to hang out with girls, which I did excessively. What marriage has done for me is that it’s allowed me to keep my focus on God by keeping my focus on one woman. Nature abhors a vacuum, so I couldn’t have been the kind of man I desired to be without a wife. Having a wife has helped me to try to be that disciplined person amongst all other things. Marrying a good woman also helps you develop greatly. In my lowest moments sometimes, my wife looks at me and just says to me some really wonderful things”.
