It is so sweet when you see an African man loving his wife like she is the only woman on earth despite all odds, no marriage is perfect but at that important days should be cherished. It's difficult to see men these days who love and cherish their wives the way Obi does to his wife. Amaka is indeed a beautiful and well endowed lady.

Multiple-Award-winning Director Obi Emelonye and his beautiful/supportive wife Amaka celebrate their 11 years marriage anniversary yesterday, 12th Feb, 2014.The couple is blessed with three beautiful and intelligent kids

Here is Obi's message to his wife:

“My wedding anniversary; on the 12th of February 2001, I drove with T-Chidi Chikere to a location in Omole, Lagos for the film 'Fire Dancer' starring Genevieve Nnaji. When the gates of the huge house opened, I saw a young girl standing on the balcony upstairs. I turned around to T-Chidi and told him, pointing, that she was my wife.

I had never seen her before but my spirit was not just strong about her to wish it but it was moved enough to pronounce it. I discovered her name was Chiamaka. Just over a year later we returned back to London and we were married under traditional rites on the 12th of February 2003. And we formally wedded on the 12th of February 2005.

We have since been blessed with three wonderful children and the kind of happy family that is the envy of many. So you can see that this date is one of the most important for me and my beautiful wife Amaka Obi-Emelonye. I have been telling her every day of our lives but please join me in thanking her for making my life.
