He said, “Right now, I have a bone to crack with her family because they think I am intentionally refusing to do my green card. I have not done it even now.

"It is funny how people think. I and Osas had been legally married in a court in the US two years even before the public knew we were going out.

"If I had wanted green card, I would have done it since but I felt it would be a distraction. I didn’t marry her because of that."

Ajibade added that he was never the type to patronize the whole idea of marriage and love until he met his wife.
