CELEBRITY GIST: Nollywood Actor Desmond Olusola Elliot is a man wearing many caps- a husband, a father, a Nigerian actor, a movie director, a movie producer, and a politician.

In this interview with KemiAshefon, Elliot recalls how and where he met his wife of almost 15-years, Victoria.

The father of 2 set of twins also highlighted the features that attracted him to her and keeps him attracted still, even after many years of marriage.


These were his words:

“I met her in school, University of Jos. We were in the same church. We are church people.
I’m just the seat belt, she’s the one behind the wheels, the driver of my family, my heart, my life, my motivator.
That’s a woman who hardly sleeps, makes sure the kids are in bed, do their homework and are ready for school the next day.
She doesn’t do them because she has to, she does them because she wants to. Behind her are gifts she’s personally bought and brought to Surulere, then she puts on the Santa Claus costume and is on the road blessing lives. After that, she has an event to attend. Whew! what a gift God has given.”
