Nigerian gospel actor and president of film production company Mount Zion Faith, Mike Bamiloye and his wife, Gloria, are marking their 35th wedding anniversary.
Bamiloye, on Wednesday, shared a photo of his wife on his Instagram page where he claimed that even after many years of marriage, she still refers to him as Bro Mike.
He said, “That is what everybody in the Christian fellowship called me. And when we got Married, she didn’t stop calling me Bro Mike! Then we got our first son and we were shocked when the One Year old boy called me: “AA-AA-YITE!”
“We both tried to begin to call: SWEETIE! HONEY! BABY!, SWEET-HEART! MD!” It didn’t work out! One day, before my Mum (Big Sister) who had been fighting this, My wife wanted to prove to my Big Sister that we had tried our best to adjust. I was upstairs and she called me in the presence of my Mum: “HONEY!” SWEETIE!! SWEET-HEART!!” She called and called and it didn’t register that I was the one she was calling.
“I was hearing her voice but it never registered. Then she just called “BRO MIKE!” And I responded very loudly. And my Mum laughed! And that was it. And now, OUR MARRIAGE HAS BEEN 35 YEARS AND ALL OUR CHILDREN ARE MARRIED WITH CHILDREN AND SHE HAS NOT STOPPED CALLING: “BRO MIKE!” AND I HAVE NOT STOPPED RESPONDING!
“But I am going to break this jinx one day before our 40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! I promise you all, I will break the jinx before the Grand-Children begin to call me: “BRAAA-HIGHTEE!”
