Eldee and his wife of 6 years, Dolapo Dabiri, has opened up about their marriage in a new interview.
In the interview, the couple talked about what has kept them going, including the 2014 nude photo scandal involving Eldee’s fellow singer, Mo’Cheddah.
Excerpts from the interview below
Do you have access to each other’s phones and social media accounts?
eLDee: There is nothing to hide. She knows my passwords, I know hers too but we do not feel the need to check up on one another. We have been together for 17 years and not once have we hidden our phones from each other.
Dolapo: It’s a non-issue. We respect each other’s privacy, but there’s never been anything to hide.
How did you feel about the nude picture that was allegedly tweeted at your husband by his colleague?
Dolapo: Celebrities are easy targets for scandals. I know eLDee and a nude picture is not something that would get him excited. If it had been a nude microphone, perhaps I would have been worried.
What causes failure in some celebrity marriages?
eLDee: Sometimes people don’t understand the simple rules of matrimony. What a man wants the most in a relationship is to be respected, and what a woman wants the most is to be loved. If there is a swing in the balance of those two things, the relationship is unlikely to survive. Celebrities must leave that persona outside of their home. Either spouse who earns more must honour the love and respect balance if they want their relationship to survive.
