But wait, why are people like this? Theirs doesn’t look like a Green card marriage nah. So Gbenro has spoken out for the first time abut not marrying his wife, Osas Igodaro for a Green card, despite the rumour has been circulating very quietly in the entertainment world.
Speaking to Saturday Beats, Gbenro said his case was far from that and as a matter of fact it was love. He even said, himself and Osas were friends for a long time before they got intimate and Osas used to drop him at his girlfriend’s house. Till now I’m yet to get my Green card because I don’t seem to be interested now.
He also dropped a shocker saying, himself and Osas got married legally in the US 2 years before people knew they were even dating. His undiluted words below…
“Right now, I have a bone to crack with her family because they think I am intentionally refusing to do my green card. I have not done it even now. It is funny how people think. I and Osas had been legally married in a court in the US two years even before the public knew we were going out.
If I had wanted green card, I would have done it since but I felt it would be a distraction. I didn’t marry her because of that,” he said.
Talking about how he ended up marrying Osas, Gbenro said it was never his intention to get married let alone marrying a beauty queen.
“I was one of such persons who swore never to get married.
I had an impression about marriage and love. It wasn’t up until I met the right person that the perception changed. Osas was my friend. The first time she came into the country, she even used to drop me off at my girlfriend’s house.
We were that close up until the time we became really close. We had mutual interest and she had my back. Then, I had faced so many injuries from back stabbing and snitches. Our friendship is what has been keeping us going.”
