Bob Manuel Udokwu on strict parenthood
About being a strict parent, he said:
“We both do our best as parents but i think my wife is stricter since she spends more time with the kids. I don’t believe in spanking especially as kids are already growing. Sometimes, a good talk does the job.”
Bob Manuel Udokwu on finance in marriage
On owning a joint account, this was his reply:
“No we don’t and it’s not an issue for us. Moreover, i think the foundation matters a lot. Owning a joint account is not a proof of love. My wife knows when i am down financially because i tell her. Also, there is no film i shoot or project i am involved in that i don’t tell her how much am being paid or offered. I am only able to do this because i trust her.” – Bob Manuel Udokwu
On remaining scandal free, he had this to say:
“I carry my self with dignity, self-respect and professionalism. As my career progressed, i learnt from the experiences of others which may be Unfortunate. I also had to determine not to go down that route. So i deliberately walk away from situations that will bring out certain unpleasant results.”
The star actor is happily married to his wife Cassandra, an educationist for 16 years and their union is blessed with a boy and a girl.
