‘Why my marriage has lasted for 20 years’ – Yoruba actor, Dele Odule

Top Yoruba actor and national president of Theatre Arts and
Motion Pictures Producers’ Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN),
Dele Odule , who recently celebrated 20th wedding anniversary
with his wife, Olabisi Odule, has shared the secret behind their
marital success.

In an interview with YES MAGAZINE, the Oru, Ijebu-born actor
said, ‘God sustains marriage. But the only person that actually
makes it sustainable is the woman. So, she has done
excellently well in that regard. She has done so much to make
sure that the marriage is still intact. Because if she has to go
by the way an actor would have lived, ah! (laughter). We are
from different school of thoughts. I am from the acting, she is
a legal practitioner. So, you can see that we are not from the
same field.’
The role interpreter, who became famous on the heels of his
role in ‘Ti Oluwa Ni Le’, a blockbuster produced by Kareem
Adepoju aka Baba Wande and Mainframe boss, Tunde Kelani ,
went on to reveal how he met his 46-year-old wife.
‘I met my wife in 1988, we had our first child in 1991, though
he’s late now. The boy is late now. We got married officially
20 years ago. We got our first child before we actually went to
the altar. I met her when she was just a young girl. She just
left secondary school then,’ he said.
Dele, who holds a degree in Mass Communication from Olabisi
Onabanjo University, started acting in a drama group called
Oloko Theatre Group under the mentorship of Mukaila Adebisi
in 1986. He has since features in over 200 Nollywood movies.
