Popular Nollywood actress who is married to the son of a billionaire has shared the secret of her successful marriage.
Dakore Akande is married to Olumide Akande, son of billionaire, Harry Akande. The couple have two daughters.
Dakore, in an interview with icampus magazine, said she has learnt from her parents’ mistakes to make her marriage of five years, strong.
She said: “Yes, marriage is under siege but through a lot of prayer, joint prayer, my husband and I, we make a point of duty to always pray together no matter the schedule. We just identify that God is our mainstay and that He is the third cord in our strand. I realized that whenever we start to deviate from that is when trouble would come.
“God instituted marriage and the only way it is going to work is if we tap into that source, which is God. And apart from that, it has to do with the encouragement of both families because the two families have to encourage each other. We do have our challenges, don’t get me wrong. My parents split up after seventeen years of marriage. I know what that means. I have that at the back of my mind. We did marriage counseling and that still helps.”
On her trademark hair style, she said: “Yeah. I have always been all about natural hair. I had my locks for 13 years. I had my natural hair for 16 years.”
Dakore is one of the few Nollywood actresses who have been able to live a scandal free life.
