Nollywood actress, a widow Liz Benson-Ameye reveals to Kemiashefonlovehaven the secrets of her lasting marriage to her second husband(she lost her first husband) Bishop Great Ameye
You are aging gracefully…
All the credit goes to my heavenly father and He has also given me a wonderful man who helps make it happen. I don’t have any beauty routine. Maybe before I used to but not anymore. Now people tell me I look better than I used to.
Where have you been since?
I have been around in Delta State where I now live with my husband. Together we run a ministry, Freedom Family Assembly. He has been in the ministry for a very long time and I have been an evangelist since 2006, when I was officially ordained. God brought us together and that is what I have been occupied with.
How well have you fared in your marriage?
As you can see, it’s been wonderful staying married to my husband, Bishop Great Ameye. I am glowing. It looks like we have been married forever when in fact this is going to be the eighth year. We are like teenagers in love and I am enjoying every moment of it.
How did you meet?
I met him in his hometown where we live now. I went to evangelise there. It is something that is very rare and some great men of God have told me that it is something that is rare to find. I mean one who has being in the ministry meeting another person who has also being called by God and both of them are really strong in it. I just thank God because marriage has been wonderful. We have our challenges but we never let it stay past two minutes and we are done with it. We are two young people together and you can imagine us coming together. We take everything in the strides of maturity.
What do you do for leisure?
I don’t have time for that. I look at my husband, he looks at me, and we share the word of God. We do some little crazy things like children and play around.
In future do you have plans of going back on set?
I did something in 2012 with Stephanie Linus and it bordered on health. Something that really affects the lives of women, the VVF thing and I was touched by the script. I know a lot of people said they thought I was going to do something that borders on my faith but this also borders on my faith because if I can do something that will help humanity, I think it is contributing my own quota to life basically.
Are you not interested in producing movies?
To the glory of God it has to be. I want to produce movies that will preach the word and touch the lives of people. If I could touch the lives of people with secular movies, how much more the gospel?
