Nollywood actor Charles Okocha, popularly known as Igwe Tupac, has shared the reason for being unmarried even after having two children.
The father of two shared this in an exclusive interview with Punch, where he revealed that he has never been married because he is taking his time to find the right woman.
In his words, “The truth is I have never been married in my life and I am a happy man. You and I know what is going on these days, you see a couple married for a couple of years and next, they are divorced. People you see as role models are getting divorced and when you see them you are like what is going on? These are people you have been looking up to and now they are divorced, how then do you want me to get into this marriage thing?”
Okocha also clarified the notion that he may never get married, saying he surely will, especially as his children are growing and he needs a partner that will cater for their needs and his.
“Some say I am not going to get married. No! Don’t quote me wrong, I am going to get married most definitely, my kids are growing up, and so I need a partner that will be able to take care of their needs and mine. I will get married, but I am just taking my time. I have two beautiful kids; a son and a daughter. At this time I am just focused on taking care of my adorable kids and that’s it, and that’s enough. They are my kids and they keep me motivated.”
Okocha recently survived a brutal accident and is still recuperating.
