For one who was divorced seven years before he remarried, he said his
greatest joy is having a partner who understands his life and career as
Femi said, “When it comes to marriage, it is important to be with someone who understands you and accepts you totally.
My first wife was uncomfortable with my profession as an actor, but that
is what I love doing. Acting gives me joy and I will continue doing it
as long as I can.
I cannot imagine myself doing anything else without being miserable. I
studied Law but I am not practising it and that should tell you that I
am following my passion.”
The interview which was conducted by PUNCH also broached the issue of his new marriage. Does he want to talk about his wife?
“I don’t like talking about my marriage because I have the right to
my privacy. Even though I am a celebrity, and lots of people always want
to know what’s going on with me, my fans understand why I have decided
to shield my wife from public glare.
“But I can tell you that I am really enjoying my marriage and it is
pure bliss. I was without a wife for seven years and you know what that
means for a man, but now, I am happy that I made the right decision.”
Married to Omotayo, the pretty wife of Femi, Omotayo, is a caterer and
runs an eatery, Iyan Aladuke in Yaba Lagos. She was an air hostess
before delving into catering. Quite fashionable, she hosted a house
party to mark her husband’s birthday in January
