Her words: “I don’t regret leaving my ex. In fact, I don’t feel anything for him anymore. No pains, no regrets. He tried to get me back but I just couldn’t continue with him.
“The day I felt bad and cried was the day I heard he has remarried. That he actually paid someone else’s bride price made me cry. In my case, my family were begging him to come and pay.”

“Trust and God,” Okeowo intones, adding, “The man must be God fearing. Any marriage that has sincere trust and God will survive. The problem with actresses and their spouses is lack of trust. They feel whenever you step out for weeks for a shoot, some funny things happened along the way.
“The media too is not helping matters, they cook up all kinds of stories and your partner might swallow them hook, line and sinker.

If it did, he wouldn’t have come back asking to reconcile with me. I never cheated on my ex for once. I might be temperamental but not a cheat.”
