Singing couple, Tunde Obe and Wunmi Tunde-Obe, are set to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary alongside the 30th anniversary of T. W. O. and Tunde’s 50th birthday.
Speaking on at a briefing held on Wednesday at Protea Hotel in Lagos, to kick off the multiple celebrations, Tunde said that their family comes first in everything, adding that despite the ups and downs in their relationship, they never thought of separation.
“Family comes first and I’ll gladly drop music if I had to choose. However, I’ve been able to combine everything and its working well.
“I’m glad I’m still here and, as for the 30 years of T.W.O, in every relationship, there will be ups and downs, but I want to assure you that Wunmi and I have never put separation or divorce on the table. It is not something we’ll ever discuss.
He noted that the successful union of he and his wife had proved those who would not give celebrity marriages any chance wrong. Besides, he explained that the problems that many marriages experienced were not limited to the world of celebrities.
Tunde said, “I do not think it’s only in the entertainment world. There’s something in the country that is making everyone to be so much in a hurry and nobody wants to grow with another person anymore. The expectations are too high and people are living fake lives on social media, posting things that are not real, thereby raising people’s expectations when they come across such things.
“For a relationship to work, people have to be straightforward and set their expectations in a realistic manner. Not everything has to be in place before you marry someone; everyone is working to achieve a goal. When we started, it was a struggle, but we had our eye on the prize and achieved the goals together. I’m not sure if I were already a self-made man, things would have worked out well between us.”
