INTERVIEW: How we met, married, Okon Lagos, wife speak

Posted 1 wk ago
Popular Nollywood comic actor, Bishop Umoh aka Okon Lagos, has brought laughter into many Nigerian homes through his hilarious roles. Beyond his persona as an actor, not many are aware that he has been married to his lovely wife, Idara, for four years. The dotting couple recently let PREMIUM TIMES into their home and shared their love story.
PT: How did you meet your wife?
Bishop: She was a bridesmaid at a wedding I anchored in November 2012. I spotted her at the wedding and I couldn’t take my eyes of her. I felt I wouldn’t have any other opportunity to get to know her so I approached her right away. I was in an emotionally tumultuous relationship at the time and I wanted out as soon as possible. I wanted to roll over to the other side of the lawn where the grass is greener.’
Idara: When he asked me out, I was in a relationship but he persisted. I didn’t really take him serious up until later. I was busy with my bridesmaid duty at the wedding and did not even notice his gaze. He confessed (laughs) later that he could not take his eyes of me all through the wedding ceremony.
PT: How did he propose?
Idara: He didn’t really propose the conventional way but I accepted after asking him to speak with my mother. I did this because I was unable to tell if he was serious or just looking for a poster girl that he could just be taking around to show off on set and then dump when he had had his fill. After he spoke with my mum and she approved of him, I did too.
Bishop: We courted for about ten months but I had plans to get married to her from the word go. So, when the time came I didn’t hesitate to make her my wife.
