How did you meet your wife?

We met on set! We became friends at first and along the line we noticed there was chemistry between us and we were connecting. So we became close and I proposed to her.

How have you been able to prevent your marriage from crashing like that of many entertainers?

When you are on the solid rock, when you are in Christ, you don’t have anything to fear anymore. Christ is the base we are standing on and we don’t go outside that principle.

Have you been tempted to go out with another woman since you got married?

That is almost a daily thing and that is why I titled my new movie “Flee”, so you don’t stay there to fight the battle. You have to take off!

What inspired your new movie, Flee?

First of all I’m now born again and as a transformed personality, my wife and I thought about what we can do to affect the kingdom we now belong to. So God inspired us and we came out with this story. So that’s what basically motivated me.

Were you distracted before you got born again?

Yes, I was. Can you share your experience? The distraction came in form of the opposite sex. It’s a normal thing for a worldly man who is prone to womanizing. But when I got born again, I got to know that womanizing has its effects on a man, because whenever you have sex with a woman, something is taken out of you.

It takes your time, eats into your destiny and so on. So a lot of things happen when you veer off course. When I got born again, I knew that I could do something about it.

What was your experience like with ladies before you became born again?

It has just been the normal going out on dates that they ask for; you just want to do it and see it as a normal life. But when you have the calling of God, it’s a different case; others may continue doing it and refuse to see it as an issue. But at some point, as I got closer to God my conscience didn’t allow me do it.

What has fame denied you?

A whole lot I must say! You can’t even say you are poor or you don’t have money. Again, when you get into Christ, he takes away a lot from you like pride. So at a time I had to take okada or marwa, and when people see me they are shocked. It’s quite embarrassing though but I think it’s the kingdom process. It’s all over now and I thank God.
