Nollywood actress, Lizzy Anjorin and her new husband, Lateef Lawal have spoken about their relationship, their quiet wedding in a new interview granted with PUNCH.
This comes after it was revealed that Liz’s husband, Lateef Adegboyega Lawal, has 5 wives and multiple kids.
Speaking to Punch about the marriage, Liz Anjorin said “I am happy because I’m with my best friend. I don’t even feel as if I just got married. I feel that I signed a life contract with my best friend. He is my helper.
“He didn’t allow me take poison 14 years ago and he stopped me from committing suicide. I’m glad it turned out well between us because he is behind my success story. People mocked him but he stood by me through thick and thin. A lot of people didn’t see my wedding coming but it’s better to leave people guessing about one.“
On why they had a low-key wedding, she explained that it was due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
‘’We had a quiet wedding because of COVID-19. The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, would have been present if not for the Coronavirus pandemic. Alaafin has blessed me and my hubby. Even if there was no COVID-19, my wedding would have been in Nigeria. I’ve been with my husband for 14 years and a lot of media personalities know about our relationship. I had issues some years back and he was there for me. He was my cushion in the days of turbulence/crises. He constantly reminds me that he wants nothing from me but my success.
Speaking on why it took 14 years to marry him, Anjorin said, “It took us this long because I had told my late mother that I wanted to make some money first because I didn’t have what it took to become a wife. My husband respected my opinion and told me that he would always be there for me. Now I’m his legal wife. We have done all that is necessary. If my mother were alive, she would have been the happiest person on earth because my husband is her godson. He was the only man she endorsed.’’
