Nollywood Actress Uche Iwuji Ties the Knot! Marries Oil & Gas Entrepreneur Juwon Lawal in Lagos

Actress Uche Iwuji was among the crop of Nollywood actress that seemed poised for the lofty heights of Nollywood stardom. The actress’ career was on the rise when she decided to slow the pace. The actress who splits her time between Nigeria and the UK has embarked on a new journey today as she married Juwon Lawal, CEO of Oil Trading and Logistics company, ABD Fuel during a civil ceremony in Lagos, Nigeria today.

Shortly before their wedding, the couple granted an interview to Nollywood Infotainment. Uche and Juwon shared their love story and plans for the future.

How They Met
Uche: While in London, one of my friends whom I hold in high esteem came for my birthday celebration and told me about one of her clients that is still single who would like to meet me. She knows him well as he has been a long standing client of hers. She is the owner of Giselle Home Ltd, a real estate outfit with it’s main office in Lekki, Lagos.
Initially, I told her I was not interested in meeting anybody, but she insisted and told me this guy was a good person but that it will be nice for me to speak with him and know if he is my kind of person. She went further to say that he’s a kind, selfless God fearing man, and being that she’s someone I trust her judgement of people I agreed for him to call me, from there we got talking and the rest is history.
Honestly, I can’t thank God enough because he’s given me my friend, husband, brother, everything that I’ve ever asked for in a man and more.

Juwon: I met her through a friend who is more like a sister to me, she is a property consultant who runs a real estate company called Giselle Homes Ltd. My sweetheart has already given you the rest of the details, please I rather not repeat it.

Feelings About their Union
Uche: Waooooo, I’m the happiest girl. Today is the day the Lord has made and I shall be glad in it. I feel so blessed and loved because this is every truthful woman’s dream. I’m sure many people didn’t see this coming, but I know my God cannot lie to me. Cos if there’s a man to pray, there’s a God to answer. I’ve always prayed to God for my divine destiny husband, and today, he’s proven to me again that he’s not the God that lies.

  • roomandpalor November 16, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    Congrats o! But why do Naija babes feel like they always have to say: “Initially, I told her I was not interested in meeting anybody.”

    • Nollywood Forever November 17, 2012 at 11:02 am

      I know right. what is wrong with saying “I jumped at the chance because I have been trying to meet a man for ages and since my friend has good judgement I trusted her choice.”

      • Purpleicious Babe November 17, 2012 at 11:30 pm

        lool… straight to the point…hahahah

    • Ona November 18, 2012 at 9:56 pm

      Thank u. Perhaps they feel it’ll make them appear less desperate. But abeg, in this day and age who cares? She even stated that marriage is what every woman dreams of etc so why is she fronting like she wasnt interested? I heard that in almost every naija “how we met” story and its becoming corny and cliche. In my opinion, they r all lying jor…esp for naija babes who think of nothing but marriage once they hit 22 sef.

  • funmziee November 16, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    God bless their union,loool at Polongo, your a joker.

    Uche i am soooooooooooooo happy for you. You were always the underdog and lots of ppl made fun of you and laughed at you, but see who is laughing now. If you read any negative comments here dont mind them jare, they are just jealous, you found yourself a handsome rich and god fearing man (you did not snatch anybody’s). I wish you a happy married life. Matter of fact i love the simplicity of your wedding, long lasting marriage is not all about some big white “show off ” wedding. You are smart. Now that you are married, lay low and start a family and dont let anyone hear about you. Keep ppl wondering.


    ps: to the jealous ppl making comments, the more you hate on what God has blessed, the more you delay your own blessing.

    • MyView November 17, 2012 at 10:28 pm

      Interestingly, you have the only negative comment here.

    • ij November 18, 2012 at 6:57 am

      counsellor MissT your fingers must really hurt from all that typing

  • Lagos Romance Series November 17, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    What a simple ceremony! But I’m happy for them and I hope it works.
