On his IG page, Owokoniran have been inundating
fans with pictures of his Mz Tilapia. They have shared pre-wedding photo shoot

” The most important quality in the woman you decide to marry
should be the ability to make each other laugh. Beauty fades, careers end,
money comes and goes, children grow up and move away , struggles happen,
senility sets in when your older, but the ability to make each other giggle
every day is the most precious gift GOD can give you to get through all of it. May
ALLAH bless us with the gift to make each other laugh always; I love u now and
r.” (sic).

made me realize falling in love is not by finding the perfect person, but by
loving an imperfect person perfectly. You have always stood by me as a friend, soul
mate, companion and more which words can’t describe. Oluwalontunmise you are my
heaven-sent ,you believed in me, I don’t know how I managed to impress you
because I strongly know I don’t deserve an ANGEL like you, I promise by the
special grace of ALLAH you won’t have a reason to regret your actions………
Love you now and always my Mz Tilapia

Of the veteran actor and how he helped his career,
Owokoniran said in an interview with BestofNollywood, 
“He (Odunlade Adekola) is the main reason why I am at this
level. God’s blessing is a fundamental factor in all human activities. I am a
strong believer in the fact that you need people to give you a push if you want
to grow. I also strongly believe that GOD sent him my way, he taught me
everything I know, from acting to human relations, how to cope with pressure,
fans, family, colleagues and finance. He’s always there whenever I need him; he
helped with my three productions both financially, morally and technically. He
opened doors, I’ve met a lot of people, been to lots of places, acquiring lots
of experience. Even out of his busy schedule he taught me how to drive. There
are millions of things I can mention he is just my second daddy.”
