23 year old Soul E set to wed 35 year old divorcee, Ure Okezie, a top manager at First Inland Bank...

I won't tell the story, hear it from the horses mouths

Soul E Quote

Aren't you too young to be marrying at 23?
"I believe everybody in this world has a goal. Before I got my deal, I told myself that btw 18 and 23 I'll be a household name which I have achieved. I also told myself that I'll be married before I'm 25, and I am fulfilled to be getting married to a woman pf class"

The age difference?
"She maybe 35 but I see her as 18"

Is he marrying her because she is rich?
"When a guy is dating an older woman people assume because you want something. I am successful. My wife is successful. There is nothing like gigolo or juju. People should watch, wait and see the success of our marriage"

Why did he move in with her?
"Moving in with her was my decision at least I was living in Lekki before now. We are just staying here for a while and we are working on our mansion"

His fiancee, Ure Okezie, speaks

You were once married, what happened?
"Well, we broke up"

What makes Soul E special?
"He's bold, courageous, ambitious, honest"

Didn't your family complain about the age difference?
"As long as I am happy, my family is happy"

Did you buy him the jeep he's currently driving?
"We have jeeps. Whatever belongs to me belongs to him and whatever is his, is mine"

What can I say? I think Soul E is too young to be getting married...and what's with older women marrying all our young, sexy men? We young girls are slacking no be! It's not funny though.

YEEEEPA O! Dem don 'si bere si inu eja' for Soul E. Yeah, marrying early is good for a young accomplished person but marrying someone who's over 10 years older and who's divorced already is something else o. it's like a car crash dat's about to happen.
Also, offence to u but i think it's about time u stop advertising these rubbish pageants abeg.
