Media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu says he gets angry when online bullies attack or talk about his wife, Cynthia Obianodo.
The 39 years old Big Brother Naija reality show host said he is very defensive of his wife because she is just getting inclined with the way social media operates with no prior preparation.
Ebuka opened up that if it were possible for him to keep their presence away from the internet, he would have done that, but he loves to show them off and celebrate them is why he occasionally shares their images on social media.
He told Schick Magazine that; “If I could, I would never talk about them or even put out images of them anywhere. But, I cannot help it because I also love to celebrate them and show off how blessed I am with such an amazing wife. So, I have to balance it out and do it on my terms.”
“It is very tough on different levels. For me, I get very riled up when she is attacked or talked about. I am very defensive and protective of her. While she’s also defensive of me, I think it’s more the fact that she was suddenly thrust into this life without knowing what to expect, so it took her a while to come to terms with it. She still fully hasn’t, but it’s a lot easier now.”
Ebuka narrated how he met his wife on Twitter before they got married in 2016. He disclosed it took some time before they developed chemistry for each other. “I met her on Twitter. We followed each other, exchanged messages a few times and then kept it moving.”
“The connection wasn’t instant, but over time I think I realised that, beyond how much of a happy person she is, our values aligned so strongly that an attraction started to form. It also helped that she has the biggest smile in the world and laughed a lot at things I said and vice versa. From the day we started talking seriously, I knew literally two months later that I wanted to marry her,” he disclosed.
