Okey Bakassi is a Nigerian stand-up comedian and actor. Just in case you are a bachelor that intends to get married soon, Okey Bakassi has a very blunt message for you which might pay off.
The veteran actor and comedian shared his thoughts on his Instagram page on Monday, February 4, 2019, by posting a video. In the video, Okey Bakassi gave a break-down of what an intending groom should do in order to have a blissful marriage.
In his own words: “For all the brothers who are planning to marry if you do not believe that a man and woman are equal then don’t bother to marry. If you are looking for a woman to serve and worship you, don’t marry an educated woman. If you are insecure and too jealous, don’t marry a woman who is beautiful. But if you are looking for a woman who will give and raise beautiful children with you, take you to the next level, support you in times of need, marry a beautiful woman who is hardworking and educated and has a mind of her own. If you don’t have the right tools and the right mindset to sustain a marriage, you can learn,” he said.
Okey Bakassi’s video might be the right message for someone right now who is thinking of walking that lady down the aisle. The last time the actor shared a video online that everyone talked was when he came for ‘busybodies’ on social media. Speaking on his 25-year anniversary as a comedian, he said he was excited about the journey so far. “It has been an amazing experience for me in every aspect of my life. I am full of gratitude to God when I look at where I came from and where I am today. I don’t think there is an endeavour in life that is not challenging. The fact that I am still here means I have been able to overcome the challenges over the years.”
Okey Bakassi insisted that he is yet to dump acting as claimed by some people. According to him, acting has its season and once he sees a script he likes, he embraces it. He stated, “Movies take a lot of time to shoot; so, if I don’t see a movie I like to do, I’d rather focus on standup comedy. Whenever I see a movie that I can sacrifice my time and energy on, I will do it.”
