In a recent interview, Nollywood actor and movie producer Aremu Afolayan has reacted to reports that he married his new wife because she's rich. Aremu got married quietly on Saturday December 7th in Abuja to a woman believed to be older than he is, but Aremu says he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, his wife or their marriage. The actor said his wife is not as rich as people think and that contrary to reports, his wedding wasn't a secret and his famous elder brother, Kunle Afolayan was at his wedding.
"People will always say what they want to say. I am not perturbed in any way. I don’t care. If I had married a top politician’s daughter, I am sure you will not be talking to me. My wife’s family is not rich let alone my wife. I got married to somebody I wanted to get married to and not because of her wealth. I don’t know why people say all they say."
“I wonder how anybody would say my marriage was secret. Some people went ahead to say that my brother (Kunle) was not at the wedding but he was there. Anyway, I am not ready for them. When I am ready, I will let you know,” he said.
