Nigerian rapper and activist Ruggedman has said that he is not in a rush to enter into marriage, adding that his parents were not pressuring him.
Speaking in an interview with the Punch, the singer said he will get married when it is time.
“I will get married when I am ready. (For me), marriage will only happen at the right time. I am not under any form of pressure to get married. I and my mum have spoken about it a few times and we are good. I don’t come from a family that does that (put pressure). I just want a woman that has a great sense of responsibility and knows how to live properly.
I am not bothered about whether she is a good cook, as long as she can cook a little, that is fine with me. We could also order foods or eat out. I want a woman that I would be in love with. As for whatever quality she does not possess, we would work it out. For instance, what if she can cook and her character is terrible, what would one do? Being a super chef is not a priority for me. A woman does not have to be Miss World before I can marry her.”
Ruggedman, who is known for speaking against police brutality and other societal ills noted that the worst experience he had had when he was attacked at a restaurant in London, United Kingdom.
He said, “The worst that has ever happened to me since I started activism was when I was attacked at a restaurant in London in 2019. Aside from that, I have not had any altercation with anyone, not even the police. I did not go after them because I could not see their faces. Their faces were covered with the hoods they wore and even the CCTV at the restaurant could not ‘pick’ their faces. I believe they were a bunch of misguided youths.”
Ruggedman also stated that the incident made him to be more security conscious. He added, “I don’t crawl at night, especially after 12am, because I would not like to be accosted by any policeman that I might have called out in the past for extorting Nigerians. As a form of revenge, he could try to parade me half naked as a form of revenge. I have really been trying to live a normal life, even though we all know that life in Nigeria is not normal. Nobody funds me for fighting for justice. I do everything from my pocket. If the Police do well, I will celebrate them and if it is the other way, I will speak out against them.”
On what he has been up to recently, the rapper further stated that he had been busy shooting episodes of his radio talk show, ‘Wetin Dey With Ruggedman’, “I recently started my own radio show. I am deeply involved with helping people. When issues come to my attention, I point them in the right direction to get justice. I am also recording my Extended Play album titled, Situation,” he said.

In her words;
“Even before I got married, I was selective about the kind of roles I portrayed as an actor. My husband is quite understanding and he knew I was a filmmaker before we got married. However, as a respected wife, I would not play any role that my husband won’t be happy with, such as being too intimate with the opposite sex.
It has been a sweet experience since the day we started dating till now that we are a married couple. Obviously, there will be ups and downs, just like in any relationship, but we are mature enough to handle things.
I had known my husband for about seven years before we got married and I am still the same person. I usually call myself the ‘lane minder’. The most important thing is that being married attracts a lot more respect than when I was single. It is a phase in life and we are flowing gradually with it.

“Everyone has the right to believe in whatever. You can preach your religion but you have no right to force your religion upon others. It’s not your job to fight for God. God created the world, He can fight his battles. Instead, fight to liberate yourself from bad leadership.”

He called on Africans to wisen up and identify the tricks of these ‘Western invaders’
In his words:

Wunmi Ajiboye and Atinuke Ogungbe, the two wives of famous movie producer, Segun Ogungbe have continually proven that it is possible to have a peaceful polygamous home.
While celebrating her 44th birthday today, Atinuke Ogungbe, the first wife wrote “Happy birthday to me THANK YOU GOD ” and in a tribute to her, the junior wife and actress, Wunmi Ajiboye wrote “Happy birthday to AYA ogungbe @atinukeogungbe may the good lord continue to bless your new age in…. God will perfect all dat concern you…as from today more money more achievements in… 44th look good on you ajikeade… have so much fun iya mii love you”
The celebrant responded with “Thank you so much my wife Anike we shall not be separated in jesus name…lovu you forever”
Ogungbe’s personal life is remarkable in many ways.
He is married to two women Atinuke and Omowunmi, who have no animus sharing the same man, under the same roof.
In spite of the problems associated with polygamy, he revealed that he has a peaceful home.
He is also comfortable with his wives.
“I have a peaceful household. God has blessed me with wives that understand each other. It is only God that can help a man have a peaceful home.
“However, for those who think that I would have about 20 wives like my uncle; all I have to say is that they should mind their business”.
It was once widely reported that the actor was married to two best friends.
But he debunked the claim, saying it was fabricated by a lady who once proposed marriage to him.
“What actually happened was that there was a lady who wanted to marry me a long while ago and I made her realise that as of that time I could not have two wives. She is not into entertainment at all and I would not want to mention names. Eventually, I got together with my second wife and when she got pregnant and we eventually got married, the lady was very mad at me.
“She was the one that went on her Facebook wall to spread the false news that I got my first wife’s best friend pregnant. She was the one that framed me simply because I did not want to marry her back then. Sadly, people are quick to believe news like this without confirming the truth,” he noted.
His wives have also debunked the story.
His first wife, Atinuke, said although no woman will be happy to share her husband, she said she and the younger wife bond together because of the common love and respect they have for their husband.
The junior wife, Omawumi Ajiboye said: “Yes we are best friends now and that’s because our husband’s happiness is our own main priority.”
