Actor and model, Michael Okon, popularly called Nollywood heart-throb, dismissed reports of his alleged marriage. This is coming on the heels of a report that emanated from a blogging site (Bella Naija) alleging that the talented thespian secretly married a certain runway model. According to the story, the ceremony had a few models in attendance.
In a press statement, Okon said he never held any wedding, let alone a secret one, and according to him, the rumour is a photo-shoot for a Nigerian UK-based designer, Afromodel Collections. He however revealed that after the photo session, they had a small event graced by a few industry friends.
“We only did a photo shoot for a Nigerian UK-based designer, Afromodel Collections, and Bella Naija Weddings posted the pictures and “Boom!” everyone thought it was another pre-wedding shoot. The story really went viral because I’ve been getting congratulatory messages till today. We had only a private event meant for models and how that turned to a marriage ceremony is what I don’t know. I reiterate that I am not married. I am not going to get married just because people want me to, neither would I do it just to enter another phase of my life just like some of my colleagues have done.
