“Don’t go through my phone”- Comedian Gordons Reveals How His Marriage Works

Ace comedian Gordons, whose real name is Godwin Komone, has revealed some really interesting things about his life, marriage and career.

In a new interview with The Sun, when asked how he copes with all the ladies chasing him, he said, ”as an entertainer, you should educate your wife.”

Talking about educating his wife, the father of four said that he told his wife never to go near his phone because she would see what will break her heart and secondly, he told his wife never to pick his phone when it rings, ‘give it to me, let me answer it’, he said. ‘We don’t go through each other’s phones. It is a line that we don’t cross,” he added.

Read excerpts from the interview…

What’s the greatest decision you ever took?

It’s leaving my wife and kids to come and hustle in Lagos. On a normal day, no woman will agree to that. But then she saw my dream, vision and goal, and she was supportive.

I don’t regret the decision. Today, I am a household name, which might not have been possible if I didn’t make a move then. I came, I saw and I conquered, and I am still conquering

Let’s go back to your childhood years, what was growing up like?

I don’t know how my childhood was; I just discovered that I grew up living in a large family, a polygamous family. I was the first child; which was challenging. Everybody looks up to you as a messiah when they don’t know you are looking for a messiah yourself.

How many kids do you have?

Four kids, and I will like to have more.

How do you cope with female attention?

When you see women hanging around you, it is a sign that you are doing well; women don’t hang around failure. Some of these women come to you because you are a star. But I don’t want anybody dampening my star, so I deal with them intelligently because they are fans. As an entertainer, we need fans.

With all the ladies chasing Gordons, is your wife not jealous?

As an entertainer, you should educate your wife. I told my wife ‘don’t ever go to my phone because you would see what will break your heart.

Just trust me because I do a job that is slippery, if I am not looking for them, they are looking for me. It is the nature of the job’.

Number two, ‘if my phone rings, give it to me, let me answer it’. We don’t go through each other’s phones. It is a line that we don’t cross.

I also educated my wife that ‘whenever you see my pictures on Instagram, it is nothing; this is all to make sure that there is food on the table. The only time when you will get alarmed is if you hear I am getting married to someone else’.

For how many years did you date her?

I dated her for seven years.

Was it love at first sight?

It wasn’t. If it were love at first sight we would have broken up at sight (laughter). We were in the same department at DELSU (Delta State University) studying Integrated Science.

She was always coming to me for assignments and all those stuff; I was really brilliant back in school (laughter).

What will you say has been your saddest moment in comedy?

I did a show at Nicon Hilton (Hotel) where ministers, members of the diplomatic corps and everybody were gathered, and I cracked a joke about electricity.

I was embarrassed because in this country, they don’t want you to say the truth, but I am a comedian, I won’t shut up! I am a social commentator and I have gone beyond cracking mere jokes.

As a successful comedian, could you give us five success tips in comedy?

The five tips to success in comedy are number one, creativity. Number two, originality. You got to have your own niche and be recognised.

Number three is to be spontaneous, which means as a comedian, you should be able to convert anything into laughter. Number four, you got to be humble and witty because comedy is wisdom, and number five, you should not forget the God factor.

No man can do anything unless God is with him. So, even if you are creative and spontaneous, you should not forget the God factor.
