As Nollywood actor, Gbenga Anaimashaun cleaved to his spouse, Chinelo Aningwu at St. Leo’s Catholic Church, Ikeja, Lagos, on Saturday, May 4, his face brimmed with undying joy; from his countenance, one could assuredly avow that their union was indeed made in heaven.
Interestingly, what many, especially his teeming fans, friends and well wishers are oblivious of, is the reason behind his choice of an Igbo woman.
While making this known to us, the elated Osun State-born actor cum model disclosed that his decision to tie the nuptial knots with an Igbo woman was a true definition of what love is all about. “Once you are in love, you become blind to where he or she is coming from,” he disclosed.
How did their paths cross and what attracted him to her? Joyous Gbenga, shortly after signing the marriage certificate, narrated thus, “We met about a year ago at the gym where I went to lose some pounds. We started as friends. Within the periods of our friendship, I discovered that she has the qualities I desire in a woman. Apart from her striking beauty, she is kindhearted and very positive in her thinking.”
Describing her husband as the most wonderful man, she has ever come across, Chinelo corroborated that the love is so deep that ethnicity could not have been a barrier. “We love ourselves so much that nothing could have stopped us from exchanging marital vows. He is loving, caring, and very understanding.What else could a lady ask for? She rhetorically asked.
Meanwhile, Ever since the fair skinned and handsome actor debuted in the TV drama series, Tinsel, in 2009, his career has continued to witness an upward swing in Nollywood. He was nominated as Most Promising actor in the 2010 edition of Best of Nollywood Awards.
However, the Banking and Finance graduate of University of Ado- Ekiti also revealed that he had never dreamed of having acting as a career. “My first love was music. I used to think I would end up as a musician. But generally, I have always had the flair for entertainment.”
