One half of popular music couple T.W.O, Tunde Obe, in a recent interview revealed that he and his wife Wunmi often made sacrifices for a better future. That is one of the secrets of their marriage.

The veteran musician and dad of 3 also advised men to get hitched to women who would support their plans and also help them make good decisions for the future.

He said “Marrying this woman helped me to be able to become who I am today, in the sense that we were living beneath our means for over a decade. There are many women who will never ever ever ever agree to live beneath their means. I will deny them of holidays, I will deny them of new cars, of clothes, I will deny them of everything because I was trying to build for tomorrow and she has so much faith and belief in me and where I was taking us. Because I’m the captain of my ship, I can’t lie, I am the captain of my own family, I’m the head of my family and I believe that whether we sink or swim is my responsibility.”

Tunde also added that” If you are unfortunate not to have a wife who wants to encourage you, you can have a hundred million and say I’m not spending a kobo of this. We are going to continue to live like paupers because I want to do this and she’ll be like fine, and without that peace of mind, of knowing that I was putting things in place for our future, I couldn’t have ever achieved it.’’

    I remember when the news of their engagement hit the air, I was the first to scream dt she was too old and fat for him cos back then this guy was fine as hell. But see how far they have come together proving the likes of us WRONG. I’m so happy for them but I must add that the reverse is becoming the case now as the Guy kinda looks too fat now cos wumi has maintained her stature cos she has been like this since 1990.Tunbe puleaseeeeee hit the gym and shed those lipids cos you are really out of shape. Take a look at RMD now and back wen he was a commissioner in my state. He was even bigger than this and now he has worked on himself and reclaimed his mandate as nollywood’s hottest veteran…

    What else does she put up with? Hmmmm Marriage is what any one defines it to be. 28years is a long time though and I wish you all the best. One thing I don’t believe is that one person’s marriage is the best, everyone or woman have one thing or the other they are dealing with, and knowing how to manage it for a long time is the Joy of it.(in my African tone). Love you guys still for letting us know that perseverance is a true virtue.

    What’s with all the shades on “eating”, has that stopped them making their marriage work?! No. All manners of pettiness on BN these days, shior

    I believe they have known each other for 28 years not that they have been married that long. Ah han.. But the report is from NAN so no surprise there.
