Tobi Bakre, a Nollywood actor and reality TV star, has shared his story of how he met his wife, Anu.
Bakre recently opened up about his personal life and marriage on an episode of the podcast “Tea with Tay,” including the tale of how he met his lovely wife.
The actor claims that he first met his future wife during a show when they just so happened to arrive and leave at the same time.
He saw her again at the event and finally got up the nerve to talk to her, and she agreed to spend time with him. From that moment forward, their romance grew, and in August 2021, they got married. Bakre and Anu joyously welcomed their first child in December of the same year, ushering in a new phase of their relationship.
In his words, “Our first meeting was at a time when Toke and Ebuka were hosting a show for Toolz and Gbemi. And after that, we did a hangout.
“They were guests on the show. So we just happen to be entering almost at the same time. After that, we were leaving about the same time and it was more like ‘Do you guys wanna hang out’? Ok, let’s go hang out’. You know, Covid year came and the rest is history.”
The 27-year-old movie actor reflected on the effects of parenting and said that it has increased his self-awareness and encouraged him to improve himself. In order to provide a good example for his kid, he is driven, and this newfound duty has motivated him to work on his own development and progress in many areas of his life.
“There has not been any time I have done anyone dirty or bad intentionally. I don’t hate anybody. With every chance I get, I love people. This is how I advise everyone to be. Now that I am a father, I take note of these things. I look at it that for that boy growing up, I am his first example. So, what kind of man do I want the boy to be?
“Even beyond being the person I am. I strive to be a better person. Fatherhood is one of the best experiences in the world. It is like every day he wakes up, there is just something exciting. Whether he is learning to say something new or he is walking.”
