Her husband exemplifies his support for her career often. Whenever he thought she under-whelmed in a kissing scene, he made this known to her.

Concerning the support she gets from him, Aigbe said, “Sometimes, he chastises for not kissing well in a movie. I could be on set for a week or more and he does not make an issue out of it. “

“I know I married my friend and he is very understanding.”

“I was already an actress before I met my husband and he goes through my scripts.”

The actress, who is in her second marriage said she relies on prayers to sustain her marital affairs. She mentioned that her marriage faces a lot of criticism.
