Actor, Bolanle Ninalowo, popularly known as Nino B, says that his greatest wish was to reunite with his wife and kids before he clocked 40.
He told Saturday Beats,
“I feel blessed and highly fulfilled at this age and I’m looking forward to greater things that God has in store for me. Honestly, I had no plans. What I always wanted for my 40th birthday was to be with my wife and kids because I had been living in Nigeria for 10 years without them.
“Because of my hustle and some other issues, I had to leave my family in the United States of America for a while, so this is the first time that I’m spending my birthday with them in 10 years.
My dream was to have achieved my goals so that I would be able to relocate them before my 40th birthday and that was what I did. I was really looking forward to that, so I didn’t have plans for any grand party to mark the milestone. My greatest aim was to just be with my family.”
Ninalowo also said that he had achieved quite a lot at 40. He added,
“I have achieved everything that I ever wanted in my life. I’m only waiting for my daughter and son to finish school and get married. I’m not talking about career or financial fulfilment; I’m just satisfied with everything God has done for me.”
When asked if he deliberately flaunted his wife on social media to ward off female attention, the actor said,
“I don’t deliberately flaunt my family to ward off any attention. I just live my life the way I want. In fact, if I wasn’t a celebrity, that’s still how I would do my things.
“The plans for my life is what I’m living now. I didn’t create any problem in the world, so I’m just living my life. I’m not living according to any script. I have been with my wife for 16 years.”
According to the actor, his wife does that worry about his female fans.
“My wife respects me and loves me dearly and we can sacrifice anything for each other,” he said.
On how he had been coping with the lockdown, Ninalowo said,
“I have accepted the situation because there is nothing we can do about it. The COVID-19 pandemic is not directed at anybody; it’s just what we all found ourselves in. All I had to do was look for other opportunities around me and within my circle.”
