    So happy for her. It always pay to say the truth even in the midst of adversity and persecution! Even me sef thought no one would marry her after the coza scandal but here she is getting married to a hunk of a man!

    One of the reasons I respect family and friends, they always stand by you and stick with you even when people think or say you have disgraced them. Happy married life dear, I wish you God’s blessings and better deals from here on.

    Ese, she who dared to speak out against hypocrisy in high, seemingly sacred place! Best of luck plus God’s favour to you in matrimony

    BEAUTIFUL! she had to free herself from her demons that haunted her so as to live freshly and freely without skeletons in your wardrobe, restitution is one of the hardest things to do in this life, and ever since she came out i have this magnanimous respect for her because she identified a different kind of abuse that most Nigerians have failed to wrap their heads around and she boldly voiced out indiscipline and wrongdoing with or without fear, the deed was done. Imagine if she went into her marriage with that kind of burden in her heart not sure i can even do it, might only confess to my husband (some stupid men will use it against you during fights). I am proud of you, God is happy with you darling. live, love life Ese Walter Ark. Congratulations!!!!!

      I totally agree with your comment. Most of us would never have done what she did. Carrying our personal demons to our husband’s house. She has freed her mind we can all bear her witness. I really respect her. May God bless her home and be with them.

    See what freedom looks like. Unlike the lies of that hypocritical pastor, This is what the grace of God truly looks like.

    For if we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us from all unrighteousness. I don’t know you Ese, but I am proud of you. May God bless and keep your marriage, may He perfect all that concerns you and your husband, may He always give you 2 a reason to smile, and may goodness and mercy follow you 2 for the rest of your lives. AMEN!!

    Congrats and Happy Married Life. Benny Ark was also in COZA… I just hope blogs and the press would sort of remove the COZA tag from Ese as if that is all she is and let her move on with her life.
