Omoni Oboli is one of the more popular actresses in Nigeria; her fame is built on the success of her work in the country’s film industry, not just as an actress but also as a scriptwriter, film director, and producer. However, her work in film is not the only thing that has been going great for her. Oboli has also been married for over two decades to a man whom she loves dearly. Their love is one that the actress does not fail to broadcast on social media platforms, and it is clear to see that the both of them make each other very happy. Having been together for so long, Oboli’s marriage is the couple goals many are eager to know more about.
When Did Omoni Oboli Tie The Nuptial Knot With Her Husband?
Omoni Oboli got married to her husband, Nnamdi Oboli, on the 28th of October 2000. According to sources close to the family, the two started dating in 1996, the same year the actress kick-started her career in Nollywood. As of then, Omoni had just turned 17 while Nnamdi was a young man of 25. However, the 8 years age difference between them did not deter either party when they started dating.
After maintaining a smooth 4 years and a few weeks together, Nnamdi proposed to the actress whose career was speeding up. Their marriage was held in a simple ceremony that had mostly friends and family in attendance. At the time they tied the knot, Omoni Oboli was 21, and her Husband Nnamdi was 29.
More than 2 decades have passed since the pair got married, and despite their celebrity status, their marriage has mostly been scandal-free and devoid of public drama. To celebrate their 19th anniversary in 2019, they talked about how grateful they are for each other’s existence in their lives and how they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. They shared sweet messages on their social media pages and got many likes and thumbs up for their blissful union.
Her Husband Has Been Very Supportive of Her Career
As the husband of a popular Actress, Nnamdi Oboli has somehow taken the backseat when it comes to who is the more popular figure in the family, as expected. Notwithstanding, he is very successful and a professional in his own field. He has a degree in Optometry from the University of Benin and founded the optometric practice, Dioni Visions which he runs alongside his wife.
Apart from his work as an eye physician, he also supports his wife’s pursuits. Nnamdi works as a producer at the Dioni Visions brand, which also serves as an entertainment firm to accommodate Omoni’s work. The pair have joined forces to work on several hit films, including The Rivals, Being Mrs. Elliot, and Render to Caesar. The other work he does in entertainment is being his wife’s manager.
Apart from working in health and entertainment, Nnamdi Oboli also works as a columnist for the family-centric magazine Motherhood-In-Style. He writes on how the institution of marriage is a great tool for the development of society. He works as a life and relationship coach, and he mostly does this aspect of his work on his YouTube channel. The above contributions Nnamdi has made to his family and how they have been able to blend their activities as a couple is believed to be the secret of their strong family bond.
