Nigerian musician, Peter Okoye, popularly known as Mr P addressed the age-gap between his 51 years old wife, Lola Omotayo and himself; she is nine years older than her husband. Peter and his twin, Paul, turned 41 in November 2022.
In a recent interview, he recounted how people kept talking about his family because they got married after having two children.
According to him, people told his wife that he was going to dump her for someone younger, but he made his decision and married her because she was truly the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
In his words:
“You know my wife, she has been through a lot in her life and I’m more like her support system.
I’m not gonna let go despite what everybody says. She’s more like a queen. I know, she’s an individual who… She took me when I was a nobody.
“She supported not just me, she supported us then. She’s an amazing and very strong individual like she’s an angel and I’m very proud. You know sometimes not many people know that she’s older than I am with a lot of numbers but it’s a decision I took and I have no regrets about it.
“I made up my mind like you’re the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. I got married after two kids. Everybody was expecting me to dump her and marry a younger woman.”
