Actor and author, Bolanle Ninalowo is one man who flaunts his wife from time to time on social media.
The handsome role interpreter has opened up on why he was obsessed with his wife.
According to him:” I am blessed and don’t forget that it’s a privilege to have what I have. Our love story is not that of a rich man that met a beautiful girl. We have been together for 16 years and have come a long way. We have been through so much. I had always imagined being successful in the entertainment industry and having a beautiful wife by my side.
“She is quite an introvert. We are practically two opposite people that complement one another well. Before I became a celebrity, I used to show off my wife. She looks like my mother and I had always prayed to marry a woman that looks like her. I admire my wife and I’m obsessed with her. I have messed up so much in the past and I figured I could rewrite my own story. I am fortunate to have got a second chance, so I am just living my dreams. I am not living to impress anybody”, he told Punch.
On why he titled his book ‘Shame to fame’, Ninalowo said: “I wrote the book, ‘Shame to Fame’, to share my story with the world and inspire people. I have been through a lot and I am glad I made it. Seeing how God had helped me, I felt it was my responsibility to share my testimony with the world, so people could see the result of hard work. I was very vulnerable while writing the book and I believe it makes for an interesting read. It talks about my mistakes, failures and successes.
“It is important for people to understand that we are not victims of circumstances but victims of our decisions.”
