      He was great in the movie Gringo, really funny and true to his roots.

      Only one of his friends kept the original football free kick pose ??.

      It’s an achievement. Marriage is not an easy journey. There are up and downs. For two people commit to stay to each other despite the good and bad is commendable. Of course there are anomalies ie abusive relationships that should not be encouraged but good ones who genuinely love and care for each should be celebrated.

      but people always say “marriage is not an achievement “that is why I’m asking because to stay with one person for lifetime sounds like one to me sha

      Marriage in itself is not the achievement. STAYING married (happily) is the achievement.

      Would you say marriage is an achievement for a 12 years old child bride?

      Ah ah, oga, she’s not a confusionist, now.

      Its like saying “having a job” is an achievement. We all know the real achievement is having a successful career – if you’re just punching in and out from each Monday to Friday, 52 weeks of the year without creating any real value for the company, what are you achieving? Earning a salary? One of the main roles that snr. management plays in any organization is to weed out non-performing salary earners, on a regular basis. Who wants to pay you a salary for just showing up at your desk, without dropping a single dollop of elbow grease?

      That’s what your “awon confusionist” means by her comment. Putting the work in (both parties oh, not one person performing war room gymnastics daily while the other frolicks at will) is the real achievement. And more often than not, like any plant that’s properly watered, nobody needs to tell you where and when the gardeners were sweating over their labour of love – all you see is the beautiful bloom. 🙂

      Lmao! War room gymnastics- before people in demonic marriages begin to think because they stayed for 30 years they have achieved something good.

    My first thought on seeing the photo was, thank God for life! We take it for granted but it’s remarkable that all 10 of them in that picture are still alive, and are able to come together for a re-make. Impressive.

      Mhhhhmmmmm. This is really the basis of this testimony. Alive and able to celebrate first as a couple and then as the greater group. Lovely to see it and I really like David, he seems like such a positive soul.

      same thing I thought too.. still alive and still maintaining a strong relationship probably for more that 25 years.. God bless and keep you all!

    The greater achievement is all 10 of them being able to remake that moment 20 years later. Ogun omode o le sere fun ogun odun. 20 kids/people can’t stay friends for 20 years is what a Yoruba adage says.
