How she met her husband

At the time of their meeting, Ruth was attending a Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C) in Abeokuta. They met at a night vigil some time in 1995 at the C.A.C at Sabo in Abeokuta.

The proposal

Odunlade proposed a few months after meeting Ruth. Initially she was skeptical about dating him because of the nature of his profession.

According to Ruth, she wasn’t sure she had the patience to marry an actor. But when she visited her pastor along with her family, he prayed for her and gave his consent. At this point, she felt she had the necessary conviction to continue her relationship with him and eventually marry him.

 In the course of their courtship, Ruth got to know of how caring Odunlade was and how much he loved her. These qualities further convinced her that he was the right man for her


Ruth was born in Ekiti on the 2nd of November. On her last birthday, her husband showed off his beautiful wife to the whole world and was also quick to shower her with praises on his instagram page.


Ruth and Odunlade have four wonderful boys together. Their last child was born in November 2015 at a private hospital in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Odunlade shared a photo of his fourth son at his naming ceremony alongside his wife via his Instagram account. It would be recalled that their third child was born some time in 2013.

Infidelity controversy

The media was recently agog with news that Ruth’s husband, Odunlade was dating and had impregnated one of his colleagues, Kemi Afolabi.

However, both parties have since denied these rumours. Kemi is happily married to Wale Adesipe who had studied in the United Kingdom and he’s currently based there. According to Kemi, her husband and Odunlade have a very cordial relationship and there’s nothing between her and the actor. Kemi and Odunlade have featured in a lot of movies together and this was said to be the origin of the rumours.

Odunlade has also been controversially linked to a couple of other female colleagues. He was said to have impregnated Bukola Adeeyo. It would be recalled that Bukola had starred in several movies with Odunlade. Some of these include Sunday Dagboru, Eminirekan, Abike Standing and Monday Omo Adugbo. The frequency of the duo acting on set seems to be source of this rumour as well.

The contoversies seems unending as Odunlade has also been linked romantically to another popular actress, Taiwo Aromokun in time past.

What Odunlade has to say about Ruth

Odunlade states that Ruth is a very understanding person and she gives him the necessary support and he reiterates that these qualities were what set her apart from the other girls he had dated.

What Ruth says about her husband

According to Ruth, Odunlade is a different man at home. He literally worships her. She believes that his job as a celebrity exposes him to a lot of top women that would like to date or marry him. But she knows her husband loves her with all his heart and would never do anything to hurt her.

She also believes that her husband would never cheat on her. Even if he has to be at a movie location for as long as ten months, she’s at rest that nothing can go wrong.

What she thinks about the controversies

As a result of his fame and popularity, Odunlade is often subject of many rumours and gossips. But Ruth doesn’t feel bad about these allegations because she knows her man.

At times, she calls him to ask questions in respect to those stories and she always accepts what he says because she believe that he would always tell her the truth.

Interestingly, Ruth says she has never had any cause to have a major quarrel with her husband on any of these issues and even if they have, they always settle them amicably.

Also Ruth states that her husband has a very playful personality and whenever he’s at home, there’s never a dull moment. But when he has to be away as a result of his acting commitments, his absence is always greatly felt.


Ruth claims she has no friends because she thinks friends can act as sources of gossip which won’t be helpful to her marriage. As a result, she has linked her successful marriage so far to her stance of not allowing any friends to interfere or serve as a source of rumours.

Peaceful marriage

Ruth says she has never quarreled with her husband for one day. She describes her husband as her rock and says, he sees her like a semi-god and loves her to a fault.
