Abuja - Beloved comedian Opa Williams has revealed how he told his wife that she had to become a born-again Christian before he would marry her.
Williams married his wife Patricia in 1994, but the couple had been living together for four years by that time.
“She had her first child in 1990, two years after I met her. I told her then, if I’m going to marry her, you must become born again,” Williams said.
“We had been living together, even before we had our first child. I’m not influenced by the western culture.”
“She was innocent, young and respectful. These were the things that attracted me to her.”
Williams also added his marriage is built on tolerance and allowing each other the space to pursue individual careers.
“Our marriage has been built on tolerance and allowing each other to have his or her space. I respect her space as well as she respects mine,” he said.
Patricia became a pastor in 2004 after attending the Life Bible College. She currently spreads the gospel at the Foursquare Gospel Church in Surulere.
