Popular gospel filmmaker cum politician, Evang. Kolade Segun-Okeowo has taken to his social media page to celebrate his beautiful wife, Sunmbo Segun Okeowo as she turns a new age today, February 8, 2021. In the mood of celebration, the gospel actor shared some pictures captured few weeks ago during the renewal of wedding vows and some throwback pictures.
According to the filmmaker, he got married to his wife 25 years ago when he was 25 and his wife was just 22 years of age. He revealed some of the predictions people made because they got married at a very tender age, he said he was accused of “child abuse”, some anticipated seeing the marriage grounded to a stop within 24 months and many said they were both in a hurry.
THE GIRL HAS GROWN !!!
When I married her 25 years ago
She was only 22.
Many wondered why I chose her
Amongst all the “matured” ones
They considered her too young
They assumed she was juvenile
Some accused me of “child abuse”
Because she was “too young”
They were scared for her
Afraid she won’t carry the burden
They thought her too feeble for me
They saw a weakling !!!
Some said she won’t last
Someone gave her only two years
“She’ll be back in 24 months”
“She can’t survive two seasons”
“Baby wife” they labelled her
“Hurried bride” she was named
“Why the rush?” they asked
“Why can’t she wait?” they reasoned
They were wrong
They were seeing men like trees
They saw only the outward
They assumed she was all about age
Beneath the façade of age
Laid a strong character
Beyond the deception of the body
A woman of great courage hid
Age is not everything
Age is a deception
Strength of Character is it
Knowledge of Him is key !!!
Today, that feeble girl is 47
Today, the juvenile clocks 47
Their prophecy was wrong
They spoke not from God
Celebrate with me an Amazon
Congratulate the Wife of my youth
Rejoice with my “Baby Wife”
Blow the horn for my “Hurried Bride”
Happy Birthday Catherine
Happy Birthday Adeloyin
Happy Birthday Bamitale
Happy Birthday Adesunmbo
You will live long
You will live well
You will stay strong
You will finish best
You still look good at 47 !!!
CONGRATULATIONS SB !!!
