As Olajumoke Orisaguna's fairy tale continues many believe her husband should fade into the background.
This has sparked some sort of debate among Nigerian Twitter users. Some are of the opinion that Sunday Orisaguna should maintain a low profile by not following his wife to public events and carrying their daughter. They are already calling him a house husband on the micro blogging site.
Sunday Orisaguna’s interview where he said his wife can never leave him and her money is his has been used as evidence that he needs to be quiet and not try to be in the spotlight. Some says he is hurting her brand.
“I am not afraid because when we had nothing, she was always there. If I said I needed this, she would give me. I am not afraid. If she is rich today, we both own it. I trust her for that. She has been a very good wife. I believe she will continue to be good.” Sunday Orisaguna told Encomium about if he fears his wife will leave him now that she is famous.
"If she is rich today, we both own it.” Hmm…While Sunday Orisaguna has kept calm since his wife’s rise to fame, some feel that one day her new status will cause a rift between her and her husband.
Others are also of the opinion that because of Jumoke’s new fame Sunday has to step up his game and be educated. The imbalance between Jumoke’s stardom and Sunday’s humble background will clash soon.
But what if Jumoke is okay with her husband the way he is? What if Sunday is truly happen being the house husband as his wife brings home the money? The Nigerian society is deeply chauvinistic, and many people can’t still wrap their heads around the fact that Sunday Orisaguna is carrying out his daughter as his wife continues to hog the headlines.
So what’s next for Sunday Orisaguna? His wife’s miraculous rise will be one of the top stories of 2016. What will be his role in all of this? Whether Sunday knows it or not- he has become a poster child of the Nigerian man who has a wife who is more successful than him.
Sunday’s best bet is to be the quiet and supportive husband, which ideally He was not with her when she had her shot at fame. His presence does not add any value to her narrative, rather it muddles it.
