I approached him first – Wife of OAP Nkubi narrates how their relationship started (video)


The wedding between media personality Victor Nwaogu, better known as Nkubi, and Ofoegbu Vivian Nkeiruka, made news headlines in Nigeria and the couple have now opened up about their love life.

Nkubi, who is a little person, and Vivian are married traditionally after they connected on Facebook.

Vivian revealed to BBC Pidgin that she made the first move. She said she saw him on her Friend’s Facebook wall and went through his profile. She then decided to send him a friend request.

He responded and they began chatting and they are now married.

Though she reached out first, Nkubi said he was the first one to say, “I love you.”

Nkubi encouraged others that love will find them, no matter how they look.

He said: “No matter what you look like in this world, there’s always somebody out there for you.”

Vivian admitted that people may give them funny looks because of her husband’s physique but she doesn’t care.

She said: “Anyone who says anything, that’s their business. I have decided and I have made my choice.

Advising single women, she said: “A man is a man, whether short or tall. A man is a man. If you see a man who loves and appreciates you, grab him.”
