On the evening of Tuesday, aura of festivals was filled the atmosphere in Aboh, Mbaise, Imo State. One of Nigerian’ s top actress Rita Dominic tied the knot traditionally with her beau, Fidelis Anosike.
Her friends, kinsmen and women, fellow celebrities converged on the actress’ country home for her traditional marriage rites.
From the videos making rounds on social media, the likes of Chidi Mokeme, Ini Edo, Uche Jombo, Lily Afegbai and other top celebrities were captured dancing as they celebrated their colleague.
The husband of the actress Fidelis Anosike is the chairman, board of directors of Folio Group. He also owns the Daily Times and Miss Nigeria pageant.
Despite the joy that has brought to the actress, a Nigerian motivational speaker identified by the name Olemerezi Basil has cause a debate on social media as he advised people against following the footsteps of newly wedded Rita Dominic.
According to the motivational speaker, there is no sweetness in marrying at the age of 46. Explaining his point, he stated that women have higher chances of giving birth to smart kids in their prime.
Sharing his thoughts on the marriage of the actress that has became the talk of the town, Olemerezi who is a graduate of Ambrose Alli University stated that one should be celebrating 20 years of marriage at the age of 46 and not a new union.
He however admitted that God is the giver of husbands but advised women to not be selective when it comes to choosing a partner.
Part of his post reads ” At 46 you should be celebrating 20years of marriage anniversary with your husband and your 20years old undergraduate by your side, even though it God that bless with kids. ” The joy of celebrating each year marriage anniversary is greater than the enjoyment and publicity of marrying at 46. “
” As educationist, I will categorically tell you that women have higher chances of giving birth to their most intelligent kids at their prime- age of between 22- 28 so tell me how high or low is the probability of giving birth to an intelligent child at 46. ” I know it God that gives husbands but stop being selective and you will get marry before 46″
