My papa is here! . Married for 39 years and counting. #love. #family. Family, friends coming down here for J’s birth!” This is coming after Nigerian actress Nkechi Blessing Sunday said she can quit acting in order to get married. “I think it’s because some of the people involved don’t have enough understanding. I usually tell people to try as much as possible to get married to their best friends. It is important that you get married to a man that trusts you because once there is trust it is very likely that the marriage would last. If for instance, the person I want to get married to says I must stop acting before we can become man and wife, then I would obviously have to discontinue the profession. I can stop acting for my man so as to secure my future,” she said.
