According to Olatunji, they had a connection from the first time they met. When Legit TV's Damilare Okunola asked how the early time of their marriage was, the man said it was not rosy.
The couple slept on a carton
The man said he was staying with his mother before the marriage and he had to quickly get a bigger apartment.
The husband stated that there was nothing in their room then as they slept on a carton the first night together.
We had nothing
