If your husband is not born again then you are on your own- Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde advises her colleagues

Omotola Jalade Ekeinde is one of the longest-married Nigerian celebrities at the moment.
So when she has something to say on relationships, it has to be valid, right?

At the Africa International Film Festival which recently ended in Lagos, the actress and mother of four shares the opinion that sharing faith with one's significant other and being disciplined are both key to making any celeb's marriage work.

She says "If you’re a Christian and you marry someone who is not born again then you are on your own.
"Your partner needs to be stronger than you. They are the ones getting the aftermath of your own action.

"Choose a partner who understands entertainment. Don’t choose your fan. Personally, I don’t believe in love at first sight.

"Pick someone who sees your heart, your soul, someone who sees the real you and not afraid to tell you about your flaws.

"Discipline is key. Everyone wants freedom but too much freedom is bad. Be disciplined. It’s better to be an enemy to a work partner than to your family. Learn to say No!

"We are like nurses and doctors in the industry because we can be called upon at anytime”.

She also advised against giving in to advances to get movie roles. “Sometimes you will get a role for giving yourself out but you won’t be able to retain it.

"If you become famous it will later haunt you. But don’t run away from your sexuality, don’t shy away from who you are, enjoy who you are, come on there but come out with substance.

Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde is a marriage veteran of some sort, having been married to Capt. Matthew Ekeinde in 1996
