Nollywood actor, IK Ogbonna has finally addressed rumors that his wife Sonia has walked away from their marriage.
Recall that in September, the Colombian beauty sparked rumors after she dropped his last name from all her social media accounts. The mother of one who is a life coach, a blogger, and a relationship expert edited her name from Sonia Ogbonna Morales to Sonia LaReina.
At one point, she took to her Snapchat account to flash her ring-less finger, but in a recent chat with Saturday Beats, IK Ogbonna dismissed the marriage breakup rumors.
The actor noted that his wife is an intelligent woman and gave her credit for their successful marriage because it was difficult being married to someone like him due to the nature of his job.
“My wife is gifted; she is a very intelligent woman. You cannot sit down with her and not learn something; she is very expressive, she expresses herself regardless of what people think or say. It takes two people to make things work; on her own part, she does her best and she will keep doing her best. Being married to someone like me is very difficult because my career takes a toll on me. I am hardly around and available to give her enough attention as a woman, but I will keep trying.
“Most of the time, for a marriage to really work, it takes two people, but the woman has to be patient. So far so good, she has been doing a great job and I will give her all the credit.
“Any celebrity out there hardly has time because we work round the clock but whatever time I have no matter how little it feels, I spend it with my family. It is within that little time I go out with them and take pictures with them; that is when I go for events with them. I go to events with my wife, not to flaunt her but because in the little time I have to be in that event, I’ll rather be with her than go alone. It is never enough but I will always like to give it as much as I can,” he said.
He also accused some of his followers on social media platforms of spreading hate comments.
“Some followers are there to hate, some get inspired, some are even there to do ‘eye-service’, and some of them are there as the press, just to pick things to gossip about. I have had a lot of people that come to me and tell me that following me has inspired them greatly; these types of feedbacks give me joy.”
“In my little way, I try to show people how to love and treat their family and be better people. I might not be right all the time with the things I express, but people can still learn from them,” he added.
