My marriage…with Ayodele Aguda (MCShem)


How did you meet your wife?

We met at a church programme. She was supposed to interview me there that day. It was a prayer meeting and after then, she approached me for an interview. She worked as a journalist at a newspaper company before she later left the organisation.

Can you remember the first thing your partner said to you when you first met?

Her first words to me were,”Good afternoon, my name is Toyin.”

How would you describe your spouse in three words?

Hmmnnn! There’s so much to say about her. But I’d say she is supportive, nice and caring.

What event made your wedding memorable to you?

First, it was the intimacy I shared with my spouse and the fact that I had only close family members in attendance.

What do you think are the ingredients for a successful marriage?

For me, I will say it’s the willingness to stay married. Things will come up but that tenacity to make things work will always keep you going.

What do you miss about your life before marriage?

Nothing really, If I will miss anything at all it will be the boring and lonely lifestyle. I am actually having more fun in marriage.

How have you been able to keep things together in marriage with your schedule as a public figure?

I simply set goals and try as much as possible to achieve them. My wife is also supportive.

If you were to advise younger ones on marriage what would be your advice to them?

I am still young myself so I don’t feel I am in the best position to advise people on marriage. But I will say anyone who’s planning to settle down with a partner, should be prepared to be selfless and support their spouse unconditionally.
