“I have to testify. God is great. I had a dream one night around Christmas 2012 that I will be married to Funke Aakindele and believing in the mighty God I trust, I approached and she didn’t believe me.

“A week of romance ended, we broke up and I wrote a song to send a message of what is to come.

“I decided to keep my marriage to Did a secret because based on experience, relationships like this get mixed with media hypes and speculations and then it becomes complicated,” he said.

“You know the pressure to get married was this high and mum told me she wanted to see the girl I was dating and would want to marry. I told her that there was this babe and we didn’t want to marry yet but she insisted that she was the one for me that we should have a small ceremony and the rest is history. I’m glad I listened to her.”
