Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi almost locked down Lagos on April 29, 2018 when she had her birthday and movie premiere.
A ceremony that witnessed an impressive attendance of her colleagues and friends, it was an opportunity to also flaunt her husband, Wale Adesipe who lives in London.
For Kemi Afolabi’s critics who once accused her of being ashamed to identify with her husband, it was an occasion to show off.
Recalling how she met him, she said, “I met my husband at a family function. I was not popular as an actor then. When he saw me, he felt my face was familiar. He did not know that I was an actress. We were friends for while before we got married. The admiration grew gradually. He is an engineer based in England. At present, I shuttle between Nigeria and England. There is no distance between us. He knows I am working. If he needs to see me, he will come over. If I need to see him, I will go over there.”
