In an encounter with Sunday Scoop, Owo didn’t try to run away from the crisis that once rocked his marriage. But, according to him, his wife took the wrong advice from friends who wanted to cause havoc in their home.
The film-maker said;
He also rubbished claims that the reported fight was a publicity stunt for a movie, saying people were fond of spreading rumors.
On how he met his actress wife, he said;Despite being a Muslim, Owo said he would never marry more than one wife as he didn’t want trouble for himself. “My father did not try to marry many wives because he was a peaceful person and I take after him in that regard. Though the Quran permits us to marry more than a wife, I am not interested in it. It will bring more problems for me and I don’t want it,” he stated.
“God just said she would be my wife. When my ex-girlfriend cheated on me then, she was one of the people who begged on her behalf but I had already made up my mind. It was after a while I started dating Mide. We have been married for 17 years. I have known my wife for 25 years. My wife is like my mother and I love her so much. She also sees me as her father.”
