My Husband Is Not Polygamous In Nature- Olori Sekinat Elegushi

Olori Sekinat Elegushi is the wife of the Oba of Ikate land, Oba Saheed Elegushi. She recently turned 40 and had a chat with Nonye Ben –Nwankwo where she spoke about life at 40, what if her husband picks another wife and how they met. We hoever bring you the last two, lol.

Most Obas are usually polygamous, how would you handle such if the king decides to take more wives?

That is a very tricky question and I am not inclined to answer it (Laughter). But, I will tell you one thing; my husband is not polygamous by nature. And per adventure he decides to take more wives in the future, heaven will not fall. Life will go on.

You met the Oba when you were undergraduates, was it love at first sight?

It wasn’t love at first sight. I liked him when we met but I didn’t fall in love with him. He was all over me and was always following me all over the place. I wasn’t really enthusiastic about falling in love with him, but he was persistent. He refused to give up on me. With time, I took time to study his person and I fell in love with him. Continue...

Can you tell us how you met?

We met here in Lagos. He used to come and see some of his friends on Lagos Island. He was then a final year student of the Lagos State University, while I was a final year student at the University of Lagos. On the day we met, I was at my mother’s shop, reading a novel when he sighted me. My mother had a textile shop on Lagos Island, back then. So, whenever he came around, he would see me. Later, he approached me and struck up a conversation with me. Before long, we got to know each other and I became very fond of him. I fell in love with him, and I realised that he was the kind of man I would want to spend the rest of my life with.
