Filmmaker, Etim Effiong and wife, celebrates 3 years of marital bliss
Actor and filmmaker, Etim Effiong and his wife, Toyosi and celebrating their third year wedding anniversary today, November 5.
The filmmaker took to his Instagram to share picture of their wedding day, while thanking her for keeping him grounded.
He wrote: “Being a filmmaker and prolific actor 😎😏 can sometimes try to fit you in a box. Acting out roles, reciting lines, dissecting and embodying a character is what I live for and make a living from… so naturally I had fears!
“In today’s social media crazy world, where “copy and paste” perception rules over reality, where “relationship and marriage” goals can put you under immense pressure, it’s easy to always want to be on your best behaviour but everyone knows that’s exhausting. No one is really always be on their best behaviour.
“But here’s the thing, one of my fears was that I would like the characters I played so much in movies that I wouldn’t want to go home to my reality, or that I would cling to exciting roles to act out my fantasies and then slowly drag my feet back home… Bet…I was wrong and thankfully so!
“@the_toyosi has made my reality an inspiration for my movie roles 😳. Every well-crafted role is a beautiful page from our lives together in 3 years… Minus the Lanre role shaaa😂😂😂😭😭 (TMC fans I hail).
“Babe, thank you for keeping me grounded, for always reminding me to keep the actor outside our home- except when it is needed in the other room 😉😈☺️ Thank you for making my reality a million times better than my movie roles…
“3 years down… Forever to look forward to. #HappyAnniversarytous #3strandcord.”
