On November 14, 2015 popular stand up comedian Akpororo (Jephthah Bowoto) got married to Josephine Ijeoma Onuabughuchi.
In an interview with City People, Akpororo described what it felt like getting married to his wife. “I feel great I married my queen. Josephine has all the qualities I want in a woman so, I don’t need to waste time” he said.
He also disclosed that one of the reasons why he married Josephine was because she is not an entertainer.
“I’ve always told myself that I will never marry an entertainer because I know what the industry is. Josephine is a beautiful and very intelligent lady. Her intelligence attracted me first. I also saw the wife material in her. She is very focused and inspires me a lot” Akpororo told City People.
Akpororo proposed to his wife twice. The first proposal was on August 2 at Church’s Ultimate Power Ministry, the second time was at a football pitch a week later.
Unlike most Nigerian couples, Akpororo and his wife gave out their aso-ebi for free.
