"I want my marriage to work. A week before my marriage, I left social media. There was a lot of news on Instagram. Partners were fighting each other. I was literally palpitating, asking myself if I was ready for marriage.
“These were people I felt they were really in love, some even having dated for seven years. It was important that I married someone in the entertainment industry, whether radio, film, or movies. It’s a delicate industry.
“You need someone that really understands when you’re out late. When she’s out late, I understand and it’s not an issue. It’s not a struggle to back by 1 am and have a partner who is wondering if there’s lipstick [stain] on you", he said.
