I thank God for the privilege of knowing him because when you know him,
you are at peace with yourself. There is no gain in pride as God detest
pride and we as human beings should not do things that will detest
God. I don’t want to be associated with pride. I was brought up in
Ibadan by Christian parents. My father of blessed memory was Chief
Herbert Balogun. My mother is Mrs Hannah Balogun and she is still very
ups and down, what is your advice to young couples who want to leave
their marriage due to one reason or the other?
challenges in their marriage, I want to say that patience goes a very
long way. They also need prayer. It is not by power or might to make
marriages work. If you park up your marriage, do you want to remain
alone for the rest of your life? Probably No. The next person you may
meet may be worse than the one you want to leave. So if marriage is
worth the while at all, it is worth keeping. I employ them in the name
of God to be patient and persevere. Marriage is not a bed of roses. If
you are a professional and while practicing your profession, things are

whatever rumour that goes around, we know that it will never see the
light of the day.

sued for Divorce in a London court, did you hear about this too?
about it because we were in United State of America with all the family.
But our son who is 14years old woke us up that hot afternoon saying
Daddy, Mummy come and see what is happening. My husband was fresh out of
Government and we were just chilling out trying to get ourselves and
bond together as a family and thank God for our lives. He told us there
was something terrible going on about us on the social media and we were
faraway in US when they said we were in London. We didn’t know where
the story came from that we were in London when we were in United
States. We were not even with our phone as it was switched off, so no
family member could reach us but it is one of those things.
family Life, trust, and believing in each other. You have to be patient
and respect each other even in the midst of storm. We never quarrel as
we have our ways of resolving our issues.
