At her 3 Thrones concert held on Sunday, 23rd of October, 2016 in Lagos, Tiwa Savage whose marriage to Tunji ‘Teebillz’ Balogun unfortunately crashed (read here) after barely two years was videoed seeking marital advice from power couple of twenty years, Tunde and Wunmi Obe (TWO).
The singer and sexy mum of one paused her performance to comment on the scourge of failed marriages among young couples before she went on to ask the couple the secret to their successful married life.
A question to which Wunmi quickly replied; ”I married the man I love – he’s my friend and everything.”
Tiwa: ”So I wanna ask a very, very important question. How have you guys lasted so long? And this isn’t just for stage. Yesterday I saw them and they were holding and hugging. So I was like OK now, there’s no camera here now, it’s enough. So I want them to tell us the real truth …”
Wunmi said: ”Communication, friendship, patience, tolerance.”
Tunde responded: ”The only third party you gets involved in your marriage is God”
Tiwa replied: ”So no family, no friends, no press” and they ended it with a ‘Nah!’
The venerated couple further remarked; ”Mutual respect is also very important to a marriage. Communication, patience, tolerance are also imperative.”
Tunde and Wunmi Obe have kept their love and marriage going for over two decades. They are also musical partners – two halves of T.W.O.
They met in 1988, dated for 10 years before tying the knot in 1998, and they have been going strong ever since.
