These Nigerian celebrities snagged older women and they seem happy with their decisions.
No marital drama for some and others no scandal.... The pecks of marrying an older woman we guess. Which leads to the question:
1. Peter Okoye and Lola Omotayo
The couple who got married on November 19, 2013, in a traditional marriage ceremony, before tying the knot again in a civil ceremony last year, January 2015, have been on the receiving end of people's criticism ever since they made their relationship public.
In an earlier interview years back, Lola addressed the age gap between them saying, "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."
They have two children together, Cameron and Aliona.
2. Darey Art Alade and Deola Ayeni
Deola Ayeni is actually eight years older than Darey yet they’ve been married for over 5 years with lovely kids.
When asked in an interview if he feels any pressure of any sort being married to somebody older him, "No pressures at all! Every body at sometime finds what works for him or her. I am perfectly happy with my marriage to my wife and I absolutely have no problems or pressures of any sort."
3. Soul E and Queen Ure
Before their breakup, Soul E and Queen Ure were in love......
