According to one of Celine Dion’s popular songs, ‘Love comes to those who believe’. This is quite evident in the story of how IK Ogbonna met his wife. Enjoy the story below, as documented by Netng.
Handsome nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna spoke with Netng about how he met his Colombian wife, Sonia Morales, whom he married in a low-key ceremony on June 29 in Belgrade, Serbia.
In his exact words:
‘Basically a friend of mine met me on set and we were talking about me finding a woman, and I think at that time I was out of a relationship and he was trying to advise me to look for someone and I was not even in a hurry to look for someone. I basically asked God to direct me to someone I want to be with because I really don’t enjoy the habit of changing women. When I date someone, I date you with perspective of future, I have the consciousness of, you know, wifing you once I start dating you, but the whole dating process is to understand if you are compatible and see if you can live together.’
He continued by saying, ‘I am not really a fan of divorce. So I have always been someone who would be very careful to choose a wife; to make sure that she’s a person you won’t regret marrying at the end of the day. So she pointed out this girl to me that was her friend on Instagram. So unconsciously, I was following her and liking all her pictures because she is a pretty woman with a lovely shape,’
The award-winning actor concluded the story by revealing how they moved from Instagram to a walk down the aisle.
‘I left her page and later she followed me back. It was very funny because when I saw her the first thing I told my friend was I was going to marry her. That was how it started. We started talking, we met each other and after dating and courting we realized that we are almost like a twin. She can complete me, she knows every little thing I am thinking of, she knows what I am about to do next. She’s like that, she trusts me a lot and I trust her too. Basically we are all about positivity and building each other mentally and spiritually.’
It’s definitely a beautiful story and one that should inspire everyone waiting to love the right person. We wish IK and his wife a blissful and long-lasting union.
