Today, February 24, is his wife, Oluronke’s birthday and the actor, who just returned from Dublin, Ireland decided sending a birthday shout out to her.
Popularly called Mr Latin, Nollywood actor, Bolaji Amusan took to Instagram to celebrate his wife:
“Happy birthday to this wonderful woman in my life, my love, my babe, my joy, my pillar of strength and a virtuous woman. You make me happy every now and then, may you remain blessed today and everyday.LLNP.” (sic)
The duo has been married since 1999 and they are blessed with two children. Though living in Ireland, the couple said they still carve out time for each other. In an interview, they revealed:
Whose idea was it that you should live in Nigeria while your wife and children stay in Dublin, Ireland?
Mr. Latin: It was the idea of the two of us. There was a long strike by teachers at a time and we thought such would not give our children what we really wanted for them. We decided to relocate but because of the nature of my job, I cannot stay over there with them.
Oluronke: It was a mutual agreement between my husband and I.
How has it been maintaining distant relationship?
Mr. Latin: We spoke almost 10 times every day. I woke them up with telephone call in the morning to speak with my wife and children till they are off to school. We also chat on WhatsApp and do video call almost every day. I do go to visit them and they come to Nigeria as well.
Oluronke: There is no discomfort because we manage to keep the communication going and this has helped us in building healthy relationship.
What domestic chores do you help your wife to do?
Mr. Latin: When I am with them abroad, we do almost everything together, including washing clothes.
How often do you hang out with your wife because of the distance?
Mr. Latin: When she is around, we go out together and whenever I am with them abroad, she takes me out.
Happy Birthday to ‘Mrs.Latin”
