“I believe what they share is deep, very deep…” Betty Irabor says of Abounce and Yvonne Jegede’s romance
By Sewe Ishola
The publisher of Genevieve magazine Betty Irabor, who has been married for decades took to Instagram to share a photo of newlyweds, actors, Yvonne Jegede and Olakunle, better known as Abounce, whose traditional wedding took place over the weekend.
She noticed how in love they looked in their pictures and took to her social media to praise them for how they have handled their relationship so far and share from her decades long experience.
She wrote: “When you look at this picture what do you see?
I will tell you what I see. I don’t see two celebs, I see two happy people who genuinely love themselves enough to love each other. You cannot give what you don’t have, remember? You cannot love others without self-love. I see a couple who are not living their lives to please others because they don’t need to prove anything, They know that they are not in any race or competition… They got engaged without any suffocating drama, their traditional wedding yesterday was at its realest. Most of the pressure people go through are self-inflicted in an attempt to make unnecessary statements. Who are these people everyone is trying to impress anyway? The truth is, people try too hard to be accepted, to meet other people’s expectations, to please others who really shouldn’t count…what really should count at the end of the day is the marriage not the wedding….marriages begin where weddings end .
I have come to know Yvonne and Kunle better and at the end of the day, that’s what counts…
Congratulations my darlings. Please don’t make me eat my words! ( I know you won’t )”
