Nigeria’s foremost ethical and versatile comedian, Okundalaiye Ayodele popularly known as “SACCO” got married to his long-time heart-rob, Aghogho Idogun, now Aghogho Okundalaiye. In this exclusive interview with DailyFamily, Sacco tells us more about his marriage and family.
Can we meet you, please?
My name Okundalaiye Ayodele but they call me Sacco. I am a Master of Ceremony and a stand-up comedian.
You have been married since when?
For a long time. For about four years now.
The Experience has been?
The Experience has been amazing. We are learning all the time I thank God.
How did you meet her?
Yeah, her name is Aghogho Okundalaiye. I met her, we met in the teenage choir we used to be in Redeem, and we met as friends. She went to the university, I went to the university and while she was in school we started a Relationship and we have two children now and the relationship is still going.
At what point do you think she is supposed to be your Wife?
You know there are some people you will see and you like them naturally. That is, from the first day I saw her I liked her naturally, you know it was like someone you like naturally and then as you grow older you are in the choir together and you see all the time and it gets better and better. I remember very well as a teenager that one day I will get married to her because when we go to a concert and we see couple singing and I tell her one day we are going to stand on the stage together and I will play keyboard you (she) will be singing. And the reality is she sings and I may not be playing the keyboard but sometimes I back her up.
Is there anything that you don’t know about her that you know about her that you realize when you got married despite the years you have been together?
Well, what do I not know about her
Because I know a lot. At least 80 percent about her.
In these last four years, what are those new act she exhibited that you haven’t seen before?
I think if someone offends her she tends to remember it and you know I tell her and say see, as Christians these things can hinder us and it’s a process.
And she is growing after that?
Yes, she is growing in this.
I say see, people have offended me but as much as possible but you know the reality, when you are, then, put your peace together, don’t react to them but keep living
But has blessed you beyond where you are and that is a testament that God is blessing you. Is not that you see them and remember the wrongs
Both of you are in the entertainment industry?
No, she is not fully in the entertainment industry. For some time we were taking care of the children but now I am pushing her out. She is an amazing singer, so I am pushing her out.
Are there any challenges you think you can face if you both are in the Limelight?
One thing that is key is raising Godly children so I think when it gets to that level I believe God will bring people because we are careful about getting house helps. I know we are still going into it and we trust God will put some strategic good people into our lives to help us take care of the children.
Well, I don’t get busy all the time like that. I get busy on Saturdays.
How many Children do you have?
I have two children. I have a daughter and a son. Mature children actually. The first one is 3, the other one is 10.
How did you feel when you had your first Child?
You know when I saw the picture of the scan I was excited about it, seeing my daughter jumping and dancing. I said to myself that I am also a dad.
Does she look like you?
Yes. She looks like me actually, my son looks like me.
Thank you, God bless.
