Popular Nigerian music couple T.W.O, Tunde Obe, in a recent interview revealed that he and his wife Wunmi often made sacrifices for a better future. That is one of the secrets of their marriage.
The veteran musician and dad of 3 also advised men to get hitched to women who would support their plans and also help them make good decisions for the future.
He said â€œMarrying this woman helped me to be able to become who I am today, in the sense that we were living beneath our means for over a decade. There are many women who will never ever ever ever agree to live beneath their means.Â I will deny them of holidays, I will deny them of new cars, of clothes, I will deny them of everything because I was trying to build for tomorrow and she has so much faith and belief in me and where I was taking us.Â Because Iâ€™m the captain of my ship, I canâ€™t lie, I am the captain of my own family, Iâ€™m the head of my family and I believe that whether we sink or swim is my responsibility.â€
Tunde also added thatâ€Â If you are unfortunate not to have a wife who wants to encourage you, you can have a hundred million and say Iâ€™m not spending a kobo of this. We are going to continue to live like paupers because I want to do this and sheâ€™ll be like fine, and without that peace of mind, of knowing that I was putting things in place for our future, I couldnâ€™t have ever achieved it.â€™â€™
