Muiz Adebiyi, a young Nigerian man who is married to an older American lover, Susan Smith and lives in the US with her granted an interview to Punch where he opened up on their over two-year-old marriage and his reason for marrying her.
See excerpts from the interview below...
Q: What attracted you to your wife despite the obvious disparity in your ages?
A: I am attracted to her because she is very cool, loving, understanding and protective. She has a better behaviour than slay mamas.
Q: How long did you know her before you proposed?
A: We had known each other for two years before we decided to get married three years after. (Huh?)
Q: What profession are you into?
A: I am a soccer player and also a car dealer.
Q: When there are disagreements between the two of you, who apologies first?
A: We both apologise when there are disagreements. But she does that first and more than I do because she is a wise wife who knows that the husband is the head of the house. She knows what marriage means.
Q: Tell us about her.
A: She is a nurse and from the United States of America. She is a short person but with a high intellect. She is quite understanding and the best woman in my life after my mother.
Q: Some people believe you chose her to get a permanent stay or something related. What do you have to say to that?
A: Yes, I know that most people will think that way. But I do not care because I was already a US citizen and that’s not from her.
Q: Having dated a Nigerian lady and now married to an older American, what comparison can you make between the two?
A: My wife is far better than Nigerian ladies in every positive way. She is a wife material.
