Debunking the rumours that he got married secretly, the young producer said his marriage was everywhere, adding that the actress even supported me. “People should not be talking about something they do not understand. They never knew when we started dating or what we agreed upon before I got married. The movie, I’m shooting presently is written by Ruth Kadiri and she is playing a major role in it.”
