Famous Nigerian actor and filmmaker, Success John has revealed that he nearly tied the knot with an old woman who had already married 9 times at a point in his life.
According to the filmmaker who doubles as a beautician, he nearly accepted an offer to marry an older woman a decade ago after he was pressured and offered a huge sum of money just to give the nod to their union.
“I almost married an older woman 10 years ago. Actually, two were pressurizing and offering me plenty of money to marry them.”
He added that he was also promised a lot of riches including a trip to Mecca by the wife of one late Alhaji if only he would marry her. However, he let what many would describe as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity slip right through his hands.
“One was a Muslim who wanted to take me to Mecca. In her words, ‘If you agree to marry me and convert to Islam, I will make you rich forever. As you can see, Alhaji, my husband, is dead’. I quickly told her to allow me think about it, and that’s how I ran for my life and she never saw me again.”
