Top actor Olaniyi Afonja popularly known to his fans as Sanyeri has dismissed the possibility of himself marrying a second wife.
Sanyeri who recently revealed he was a shoe repairer before becoming an actor credits his wife for staying with him when he had nothing to show for.
“All through the period I was courting my wife, I did not have money. In fact, I was living in a room apartment with three other friends of mine – Adekola Tijani, Adebayo Tijani and Ibrahim Chatta. Afeez Eniola frequently came to visit us and he would spend the whole day with us. That is why I will forever appreciate my wife and I will never stop celebrating her.
“She was one of the ladies that saw herself as a fine girl yet she decided to stay with a man who had no money and no good looks. If a woman stays with a man, it is either because he is rich or he is fine. I didn’t possess any of those qualities yet my wife decided to stick with me. It is not as if I was very good with words or I had a name to brag about. She stayed with me with the belief that one day, I would become someone in life.
“It’s because of her that I believe that some women have foresight. She had probably seen that my future would be bright; we began dating in 2004 and got married in 2010. That is why it is impossible for me to have a second wife. How can it be possible for me to get a second wife after all my wife has been through with me? She has faced so many struggles with me, so I cannot decide to marry another wife now that things are rosy for us. It is impossible.”
Sanyeri also revealed he met his wife for the first time at the National Theater.
