Nigerian actress, Sotayo Sobola has shared her experience in marriage and how life has changed after officially getting off the market in a recent interview published on Kokong.
Sotayo Sobola reportedly revealed that she is respected more now since she became a married woman than when she was single.
The delectable thespian who was bestowed with the title of Sarauniya other words known as ‘Queen Mother’ of Uke Kingdom in Nasarawa State also shared how she acquired the title.
“IT HAS BEEN A SWEET EXPERIENCE SINCE THE DAY WE STARTED DATING TILL NOW THAT WE ARE A MARRIED COUPLE. OBVIOUSLY, THERE WILL BE UPS AND DOWNS, JUST LIKE IN ANY RELATIONSHIP, BUT WE ARE MATURE ENOUGH TO HANDLE THINGS.”
“I HAD KNOWN MY HUSBAND FOR ABOUT SEVEN YEARS BEFORE WE GOT MARRIED AND I AM STILL THE SAME PERSON. I USUALLY CALL MYSELF THE ‘LANE MINDER’. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THAT BEING MARRIED ATTRACTS A LOT MORE RESPECT THAN WHEN I WAS SINGLE. IT IS A PHASE IN LIFE AND WE ARE FLOWING GRADUALLY WITH IT.”
“I BELIEVE THE PALACE SAW SOME QUALITIES IN ME AND DEEMED IT FIT TO GIVE ME THE TITLE. ACCORDING TO THE EMIR OF UKE KINGDOM, HIS FATHER’S TWIN SISTER WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO BE BESTOWED WITH THAT TITLE AND SINCE HER DEMISE, NO ONE HAS BEEN GIVEN THAT HONOUR. I AM MORE OR LESS A ROLE MODEL TO WOMEN IN THAT COMMUNITY.”
