Durojaiye also said that he is still in love with his former wife because they were friends for almost two decades before they eventually got married.

According to him, their love started in their teenage years, when he was 17 and she, 16 and they only reason they got divorced is because their union did not work out anymore.

When asked if he would celebrate Valentine’s Day, he said; “I am not sure yet, because of work. However, if I have to take anyone out on Valentine’s Day, it would be her [ex-wife].

“Love is the most powerful force on earth. Some people have given up on love, marriage and relationships. But, that is so wrong. Love is still a beautiful thing and the most important thing God created. I envy anyone who is in love.

“I still love my ex-wife, because she was my friend for about 18 years before we got married. We were teenage lovers. She was 16 and I was 17. Our divorce was not acrimonious. It just did not work out anymore, so we went our separate ways. We have children between us and we are friends. If I don’t tell you that we are divorced, you won’t ever know when you see her around me, because we were best friends.”

Durojaiye went on to advise single people to marry someone they love and their decision should not be based on the person being religious.

“Never marry anybody for any other reason than for the fact that you love the person. Don’t marry because she is a church girl, or because he is a mosque man. If you make the mistake of marrying the wrong person, eight times out of 10, that marriage will not work. Love is so important,” he said.
