What About Olajumoke’s Husband?

|
February 25, 2016
Let’s start with a few questions. What is Olajumoke Orisaguna’s husband’s name? What is his job? If you were able to correctly answer these questions, then congratulations, you’re one of the few Nigerians that’s actually looking beneath the surface of Olajumoke’s success.
For your information, his name is Sunday Orisaguna. He is an artisan and makes aluminium doors and windows. Olajumoke’s story has taken Nigeria and the world by storm and since she stumbled into Tinie Tempah’s photoshoot, it’s been all anyone can talk about.

But have we paused to think about her husband? What is his role in all this? How can we make sure he isn’t left out of his wife’s success?

But why can’t her husband take care of the home and kids, while Olajumoke makes the money??

So far, it’s looking like he’s being left behind.

Some think that TY Bello has done her best and isn’t obligated to do anymore than she has done already.

Some say Olajumoke is proud.

Or we might be worrying over nothing.

Praise Fowowe, a family life coach, shared a really thoughtful piece on Facebook which specifically talks about this.

My thoughts today – Praise Fowowe The Husband of the Breadseller versus The Husband of the ModelI appreciate you…
Posted by Praise Fowowe on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 He shared..”The Husband of the Breadseller versus The Husband of the Model: For the record, no story has been told of her marital relationship prior her stardom. The Yoruba speaking Olajumoke who was intellectually compatible with her husband left the house that fateful day. But, there is a new Jumoke now, one who has become a cynosure and the latest celeb in the nation.”
He continued.. “What role would this play in her family life? May I state here that all the corporate giants that have suddenly rolled out their drums to beat a new dance for Jumoke, the beautiful bride, should also extend the same gestures to her husband so we do not end up with a celeb whose marriage may struggle in days to come.”

These are some of his suggestions:

– “The husband must be made to go through the same level of training Jumoke is exposed to. There is no point giving this man a modern wife when he may remain an ancient man. If Jumoke, the celebrity, is going to be an English speaking one, her husband must also become one.” – “Carefully manage the relationship between Jumoke, her husband and their extended family. This is Africa and we all know the implications.” – “Keep Jumoke close to TY Bello or Tara Fela-Durotoye; these are two women who have been able to match corporate success with domestic success. A scandal on our beautiful bride is a news we would not want to hear as all sorts of juicy offers will come her way. It takes a values driven person to resist some of the offers which may come from some quarters that I shall not mention here. Jumoke needs to be this values driven person; she needs to be groomed to be this person.

QUESTION: If Olajumoke was a man, would anyone care about finding the spouse a job?
