Peter Okoye Finally Reacts To Story That His Family Is Against His Marriage To Lola


Peter Okoye in a new interview with Encomium Magazine has denied the stories that his family members were not in support of his marriage to wife Lola.
Or that that was the reason his elder brother Jude didn’t attend his wedding.
 
Excerpts From the chat, Peter said:
Is there any iota of truth in the tale that your family didn’t support the wedding?
That is very far from being the truth. I saw some of those reports and was full of laughter. Everybody is just laughing because the reports are like comedy to us. Honestly,
there is no iota of truth in the rumour. But it’s one of the prices you pay as a celebrity, so I remain focused.

How would you describe your wife?
Honestly, she is a wonderful woman. She has virtually all the qualities that every man would want in his ideal woman. She’s caring, loving, God-fearing, hard working – just name it, that’s my wife for you.

What are the sterling qualities that endeared her to your heart?
I just said that now. No man will not want to spend the rest of his life with a woman that possesses the qualities I mentioned.

Why was the wedding delayed till now despite you having all it takes to be a husband?
The truth is that we have always known that the wedding will come up. We just didn’t want to rush things unnecessarily. We waited for the right time.

Entertainers are not used to keeping one woman, how is your own case going to be different?
Entertainers don’t keep one woman? I don’t think so.

Peter Okoye & Lola Omotayo’s Authentic Love Story – Why She Wedded Him Despite Their Age Difference


culled from Encomium Weekly.

Peter Obumneme Okoye of P-Square and Lola Omotayo’s love story is compelling and amazing.The couple have been in a relationship for over eight years before they finally tied the knot on Sunday, November 17, 2013.

In an interview with ENCOMIUM Weekly in April 2008, the then Business development Director, FK:G2 (a top marketing outfit) had poured out her heart about her relationship with Peter:
My agency handles some of British American Tobacco brands and P-Square was doing a show for us at one of our events in Enugu. Though I had met Peter a couple of times before then, at the show there was some chemistry. 
He asked for my number and I refused giving it to him. I told him if you really want to know me, you have to find my number. So he took it as a task and found my number and the rest is history.”

Lola, said to be 35 back then, and the popular singer in his 20s, was not disturbed by the age difference.

Her defence:
Like I said, Peter is an old soul and he always tells me that I’m like a 23-year old. Age is just a number. Right now, you can see it around the world. Demi Moore, Usher and some known people. Even in Nigeria here, they are dating people far older than their age. So, we shouldn’t base it on the age factor. He doesn’t make me feel like he’s younger than me.”

On the future of their relationship, Lola who now has two children for the music super star had also told ENCOMIUM Weekly, she is not really particular about marriage.

The truth is I’m not particular about marriage. Marriage is not something you rush into. To me, it is over rated in Nigeria.  
Here, they say marriage completes a woman, but I don’t believe in that. There is so much that completes a woman and marriage is not it. I’ve never focused on that. I’m not the little girl who dreams of her wedding day. I’m not afraid to be alone.  
I pray, I am not going to end up alone for the rest of my life, I want a life partner. But the tag, marriage is not something I think is the ultimate. I would take my time rather than rush into marriage only to later discover that it is not what to expect. 
And Peter, as well, is dealing with his own career and he wants to focus on that. And you know, may be in a year’s time, I would be ready to get marriage and if he’s not ready then, we get to go our separate ways. The truth of the matter is that marriage is not in the picture for me right now.”

Lola further narrated how she was struck by cupid’s arrow: she confessed they were friends for a while before they got intimate:

“Not that long. He was too fine, so I had to kiss him. In the beginning, we were coming from different walks of life and there were later adjustments. When I’m into something, I’m into it, 100 percent. People just look at the social status thing. He’s an entertainer, she’s a career girl, but it’s not about that. He’s not the first artist I’ve dated, not a Nigerian though. He was an international act.”

Peter of P-Square had always told his family and friends it is either Lola or nobody. Even when a former beauty queen and a struggling rapper allegedly got romantically involved with him, he had to disown her for the sake of his love for Lola Omotayo.

Despite their different cultural backgrounds and career paths, the popular artiste’s love for Lola did not wane. Even when she got pregnant with their first baby, he didn’t shy away from his responsibility.
“The pregnancy is mine and nothing on earth can make me deny it. After all, I didn’t impregnate a street girl. The person carrying my baby is an independent and responsible lady who I love with all my heart. So, the baby is mine and I’m proud to be the father. As for marriage, I don’t have plans for it yet.” 

Pretty Lola Omotayo, a native of Osogbo in Ifelodun local government of Osun State has obviously got more than she bargained for from her more than eight year romance with the Anambra-born Peter Okoye.
From leisure trips to exotic car gifts, the half-caste in her late 30s has been pampered far beyond her dreams by the singer whose songs are the toasts of many in Nigeria and beyond.

And now they have consummated their union the traditional way, their family, fans and associates are wishing them everlasting marital bliss.

Wizard Borrows His 16 year Old Grand-daughter’s Breasts To Attend Meeting At Night


A man believed to be in his 70s, who claimed to be a wizard, was on Wednesday found on the banks of the Okrudu River at Kaimebre, a settlement near the Kasoa New Market in the Central Region Ghana.

The man, who gave his name as Charles Atta, looked frail, pale and bore protruding breasts like that of a teenage girl.

His body was smeared with mud from the bank of the river where he was found by two brothers, Liberty Obeng and Innocent Obeng, who claimed they found the strange man crying for help.

The two brothers told Daily Guide reporters that the self-acclaimed wizard confessed to them that he was in the company of colleagues, including a medical doctor and were flying to Cape Coast for a meeting when he was forced down.

According to him, they were flying over a church where an all-night vigil was being held when he crash- landed at Servant Kings International School.

“When we as ked him where he was coming from, Atta told us that he was from Akuapem Akropong but was flying to Cape Coast to attend a meeting for witches and wizards,” he said.

Charles also confessed that the two puffy protrusions on his chest were breasts taken from his 16-year- old granddaughter and that he normally borrowed them for his night activities.

The two brothers said they were initially confused and bewildered by the weird sight of the man, and not knowing what to do him took him to Pink FM, a local radio station at Kasoa for help.

When the strange announcement was made on radio, hundreds of people besieged the premises of the radio station to see the suspected wizard.

Upon hearing the news, the Kasoa District Police dispatched a number of police personnel to the station to save the victim from being lynched.

Superintendent Samuel Tabril Punobyin told the paper that the police did not investigate spiritual matters and that the suspected wiz-ard could therefore not be charged.

He said the police would look for the family of the man and hand him over to them. Charles Atta is still in the custody of the Kasoa Police.
