Nollywood director cum actor, Ugezu Jideofor Ugezu, aka Mr Surplus, is more known as a grandmaster in the occult world as portrayed in his movies. But besides his make-believe roles in movies, he’s the best thing that ever happened to his wife, Peace. In their 10 years of marriage, the couple have come to understand that they cannot live without each other. In this encounter, Peace explains why she fell in love with him.
How I met him
I met him in their house. One of my sisters is married to his brother. So, I used to visit their house most. In the process, we started talking and the rest is history. “I was not surprised when he approached me because I had known him for a long time. We were friends until he disclosed his intention to me.
His financial status
At the time he met me, he was comfortable. And I wasn’t complaining.
We dated for a year before he proposed to me. He met me in 2005 and we married in 2006.
How he proposed to me
He didn’t really propose to me. He came to our house one day and told my parents that he wanted to marry me. We didn’t discuss it, even though I knew that our relationship wasn’t ordinary. However, if he didn’t propose to me after dating me, I would still be happy for him. Though it would have hurt, I would have moved on with my life.
Would I have married him as a poor man?
Of course, I would have married him. Right from time, I like huge men. So, I just like him the way he is, and it’s not about anything. ““What has changed about him?“We are improving now, but nothing has really changed. It’s just that before we got married, he was always staying on his own. He didn’t like talking too much, and, most times, he would be busy with his cell-phone or typing on his computer. But these days, he has really changed. He would come back from a movie set and start recounting his experience to me. It wasn’t so at the early stage of our marriage. Then I was always feeling bored staying in the house.
What keeps my marriage going?
The grace of God is what has kept my marriage going.
My husband cheating on me
Every woman would feel that her partner who is in the business of meeting different women on a daily basis would cheat on her. But since that’s his profession, there is nothing I can do about it.
How often he takes me out
He’s not that kind of man. He prefers to hangout alone, while he gives me money to go out and catch fun with my kids. I don’t have a problem with that. Once he gives me money, I’m off with my kids. But once in a blue moon, he’d take me out.
Everything depends on the woman. There are things you can overlook just to make your marriage succeed. But if you don’t want to overlook certain things, that is when problem begins.
Precious gift from him
He bought me a car. Honestly, I don’t need anything more than being happy with my man. If I’m happy, I don’t need anything from anybody.
What can come between us
Absolutely, nothing can come between us. I don’t get close to his phones. I’m just okay with him. There is nothing I cannot do for him. I can donate one of my kidneys to save his life if there is need for me to do so. That’s the extent I can go for him in marriage.
How I describe my husband
He’s the best gift that God has ever given to me. Besides being a good husband, he’s also a good father to his kids.
Watching my husband’s films
don’t watch Nigerian films. I prefer watching Telemundo to our local films. This is because I don’t want anything that will make me jealous or give me sleepless nights. Sometimes, my husband would come home and start showing me some things on his laptop, and I would not show interest in watching those things because I don’t want anything to come between my husband and I.
