Mikel Obi has been with Olga Diyachenko, a Russian since 2013 and the couple has two daughters together.

It all started when she shared a photo of Mikel eating spaghetti with one of their twin daughters.

Olga on Instagram revealed that she does not need to prepare fufu, a Nigeria meal to please the midfielder.

An Instagram user, who is apparently a Nigerian challenged Olga to prepare Nigerian foods for the Mikel instead of spaghetti.

“Spaghetti is not an African Man favourite @mikel_john_obi deserves better.... Learn how to prepare Fufu or pounded yam with bitter leaf soup or Oha soup,” Instagram user, amjennykedo wrote on Twitter.

Replying the comment, Olga who has two daughters with Mikel Obi bragged that she has other methods of pleasing the midfielder.

“Long story short. There are other ways to a man’s heart than his stomach,. I am a legendary cook FYI,” she replied before adding #NoOneLikesADesperado #GetOutOfTheKitchen #HaveAMoment #NoFufu #NoPoundedYam #HaveOtherTalents.

Mikel and Olga had their twin daughters in September 2016.

The couple recently celebrated their anniversary with Olga also wrote a short story of how they met and fell in love.

“Five years ago today you walked into my parents house and into my life. A year later on that exact day we went on our first date, you are persistent @mikel_john_obi,” she also wrote on Instagram.

“I am so lucky to share my life with you and our precious little peanuts. Love you.”
