Published by The Nation on Thu, 16 Jan 2020

By Praise OloweIt is often common among Nigerians to spend the rest of their lives with someone who is in the same age bracket.Perhaps based on culture, many think it is really weird for a man to marry a woman who is much older than him.However, for some people, and even Nigerian celebrities, a large age gap works well.Here are Nigerian celebrities with daring age gaps between them and their women:*Lola and Peter OkoyeSinger Peter Okoye is married to Lola Omotayo, who is said to be six years older.Omotayo is a marketing representative. The couples are already parents to son Cameron and daughter Aliona.Peter and his twin brother Paul were born on the 18th of November 1981.In an interview years back, Lola spoke on their age difference. She said: Like I said, Peter is an old soul and he always tells me that Im like a 23-year-old.Even in Nigeria here, they are dating people far older than their age. So, we shouldnt base it on the age factor. He doesnt make me feel like hes younger than me.On November 17, 2013, Peter and Lola walked down the aisle as husband and wife in a lavish wedding ceremony.* Kaffy and Joseph AmehKafayat Sharafat popularly known as Kaffy is a dancer, choreographer, dance instructor and fitness coach.
