Specifically, he enjoined Aki’s wife, Nneoma to be submissive to her husband, adding that “it is the only way you can win your husband’s heart.”
Thereafter, the pastor Komolafe who is based in London, asked the congregation to pray fervently for the newly wedded couple for a sustainable marriage life which they did. Conspicuously absent at the church service were the groom’s colleagues in the movie industry.
