Gift Uwame, popularly known as Muma Gee has opened up on how she met her husband, Prince Eke, a popular Nollywood actor. The singer cum actress said she met him at the child dedication ceremony of another Nollywood actor, Emeka Ike shortly after the Gulder Ultimate Search in 2011.
“After the Celebrity edition of the Gulder Ultimate Search, Emeka Ike, who was my best friend during the reality show, was doing a child dedication. I did not know that my husband was one of his best friends that attended the dedication. We met inside the church. Emeka introduced us to each other, and that was how our love story started.”
Continuing with her story, Muma Gee said her journey into marriage started almost after that introduction made by Emeka Ike as her husband, who then was only a friend didn’t waste time in asking her to marry him...
“Thereafter, my husband proposed to me the same day I met him. He knelt down to propose to me. Though the ring came much later. But since then, I have remained his faithful wife. I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight because there no love in the first place. The love that existed between me and my husband has been that kind of love that grew with time. For me, it was a divine calling to be with him as a wife.”
On what attracted her to Eke, the singer said:
“When he opens his mouth to speak, you have no choice but to listen to him. He sounds like a wise man, and his native intelligence attracted me to him. I inquired about his educational background and he told me that he had a masters in psychology,” the singer said.
The marriage has since been blessed with a set of twins.
