Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon fulfilled a honeymoon promise to his wife which was six years in the making and it was the most romantic thing ever.
Apparently, the actor had promised his wife, Damilola, that he would take them to Paris on their honeymoon, the pair got married in 2013 and so far have 2 kids. So after 6 years, he was finally able to make it happen.
The actor put this up on Instagram where he put up a picture of he and his wife making kissy faces in a place that definitely looks like Paris.
He captioned it: “Wait o… you really thought I went to the city of ♥️ alone? After 6 years and 2 kids I finally had enough money set aside to fulfill that honeymoon promise! As per Woman wey get too much sense she insisted on contributing but I no gree so she used her money to fix up stuff at home! ???”
The romantic gesture of Deyemi Okanlawon has made the rounds on Social Media and many applauded the actor for fulfilling his promises, a situation we don’t see enough of.
A commenter said: “Keep promises…doesn’t matter how long it took you to fulfill it…just do it. And I pray God gives us good partners that will understand and stay no matter what”
Deyemi Okanlawon has been in the acting gig for about 6 years leaving a corporate job at OLX to focus on acting and in an interview with the Punch, he admitted that the initial plan was to only act for a year before doing something else…obviously things have gone really well for him.
In that interview, he said: “First of all, I never even imagined I would have a career as an actor, even though it had always been a passion and serious hobby. When in 2013, I quit my job as the Head of Marketing at OLX and decided to go full-time into acting, it was meant to be for a year; after which I expected to get back to work in corporate Nigeria. Sometimes, it all still feels like a dream, one I’m not in a hurry to wake up from.”
We’re glad he made the transition, and we’re extra glad that he kept his promise to his wife.
