Popular Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna bares in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, he revealed that life hasn’t actually been beautiful being married his Colombian wife model, Sonia Morales, as portrayed in their pictures.
IK Ogbonna and his wife, Sonia Morales have made the ‘break up’ headline for months now. During an exclusive interview with radio presenter and media personality, Daddy Freeze, he spoke out about the breakup rumour. He said:
”Even if we have issues like every relationship has, I feel like when we see one on one, we will sort them out.The thing I hate about Nigerians on marriage is that everyone tries to pretend like marriage is perfect. If you don’t fight with your wife, you are not in a relationship. No marriage is perfect. My wife is my best friend first. We might not agree on everything but we are true friends.”
The actor credited his wife for his success, he said since he met her, his account (bank) increased, his followers increased, his work rate, his spirituality increased.
He also disclosed he met his estranged wife for the first time after chatting with her on Blackberry Messenger for three months. He said:
“I was stark broke when she came. I had just finished paying my rent and my account was red. I remember I borrowed like N10k from Adunni Ade. I used N5k to fuel the car to go to the airport. I had to buy Indomie (noodles) and a crate of eggs. I thought I was going to lose her.”
Ogbonna said his wife wanted to go out and explore Nigeria but he insisted on them staying at home, adding that the first four days, her mood changed.
“She was like how will I be in your country and you won’t take me anywhere,” he recounted.
“At some point, I had to tell her that I am a hustling guy. I am just someone that believes in myself. She asked me one question; do I look like someone that wants to marry a broke person?”
