Uche Ogbodo in an interview with Encomium magazine confirmed she is married traditionally and might have her white wedding before the year runs out. She also spoke about how she met her husband at a friend’s party a year ago, and how something told her, the ex-footballer is her husband immediately she saw him.
Congratulations, we heard you are married?
Yes, that is true. Thank you.
How does it feel to be married?
It is God’s blessing. It is a thing of joy, everybody prays for it.
Why did you opt for a secret wedding?
We have done everything we need to do, the main ceremony will take place soon. Most likely before this year runs out, the white wedding will take place. So, I cannot say I had a secret wedding per se.
How and when did you meet your husband?
I met him in Nigeria, at a colleague’s birthday. Immediately I saw him, I knew he was. It is more than a year ago now.
How did he approach and propose to you?
He stood and was staring at me. He told me something said he should just talk to me and he did. We introduced ourselves, I told him I was an actress, that was it.
Tell us more about him.
His name is Apo. He is from Anambra State. He is an ex-footballer based in the United States of America.
A lot of men stop their wives from acting after, what will happen to your ?
He knows I am an actress. I told him immediately I met him and he likes what I do. He supports me career wise. He understands what is happening in our industry, he is in full support.
Why the choice of a U.K-based man?
Men that have travelled far and wide know what is happening in the industry, he is exposed. He has mingled with people from other cultural backgrounds and with different people. A lot of Nigerian men don’t really understand what is happening in the industry, most especially if they are not into entertainment. He too is into show business as well. So, he understands the terrain. I think it is quite easy that way.
He has mingled with a lot of show business stars, he knows as an actress, I have to mingle with friends so I can get movie roles. I have to kiss in movies and I can be away for some days. So, it is a good thing to have someone who understands you.
