In an exclusive interview with Kola Oyewo captured by punching.com, he said his wife was a great disciplinarian who helped in the nurturing of their five sons. Oyewo said that Benedicta loved him so much, even in times that he was not financially stable. As a result, both of them had to take to farming to be able to feed their children.
Mr. Oyewo had vowed never to marry another woman even before his wife’s tragic death. This according to him is a result of the deeply rooted faith he has in Catholicism and its practices. Although she is dead, her memory lives everlasting in the mind of her husband. Most importantly, their love story was an indication sometimes celebrity weddings do work.
