The newly wedded husband to the Nollywood actress Lizzy Anjorin, Alhaji Lateef Adegboyega Lawal, gushes over his bride in a recent interview.
Earlier, after their wedding on Thursday, the news made the rounds that the man has 5 other wives and many children he allegedly abandoned to marry the actress.
Alhaji Lateef, however, has revealed his reason for going for the businesswoman over the other women.
“She’s very respectful, pleasant, and a good cook. I don’t want to boast so much about her virtues so people wouldn’t take her away from me.
“I would also score her 100 percent on her level of perseverance and endurance,’’ he stated.
While speaking on the common issue of rivalry in polygamous homes, Liz Anjorin stated that she is the only legal wife and not bothered about the other rivals.
“…Now I’m his legal wife. We have done all that is necessary. If my mother were alive, she would have been the happiest person on earth because my husband, Lateef Lawal is her godson.
“He was the only man she endorsed….I am happy because I’m with my best friend. I don’t even feel as if I just got married.
“I feel that I signed a life contract with my best friend. He is my helper.
“He didn’t allow me take poison 14 years ago and he stopped me from committing suicide.
“I’m glad it turned out well between us because he is behind my success story. People mocked him but he stood by me through thick and thin.
“A lot of people didn’t see my wedding coming but it’s better to leave people guessing about one,” she gushed.
