If you are a fan of Kofi Adjorlolo, then get ready to see your idol walk down the aisle because the well-loved actor is getting married in December this year.
After telling the world over a year ago that he was done with marriage for good after two failed ones, the veteran Ghanaian actor says he has found the love of his life and is ready to tie the knot again.
The lady who has captured his heart is Victoria Lebene Mekpah. In an interview with Adjorlolo and his sweetheart, they revealed that they had been dating for almost two years and that the wedding bells will definitely ring for them in December.
Victoria, an actress, revealed to Showbiz that their first encounter was far from cordial and definitely not a case of love at first sight.
“The first time we met was on a film set. Unfortunately for me, I was very late and Kofi wasted no time in condemning that in front of everyone. I realised I was the one at fault and from that time, I knew I had to act professionally and comport myself on set.
“We met again on the sets of other movies and we began talking. We had respect for each other despite the age difference and the love grew from there,” Victoria said.
According to her, being with Kofi, apart from the romantic angle, has also helped her improve her acting skills.
“He has been an actor for many years and provides important tips for me when we are on set. Such tips and directions have gone a long way to make me a better actress,” Victoria said.
The visibly excited couple who couldn’t keep their hands off each other with loads of PDA(public displays of affection) told Showbiz that despite being public figures, they both decided to keep the relationship under wraps and make sure the it had a solid foundation before coming out publicly.
“When you get into some of these relationships, you need to tread cautiously and make sure it is firm before proceeding,” Kofi said.
Victoria who is in her late 20s said that despite the age difference, there has not been any issues between them. Kofi is in his late 60s.
“Age has never been an issue and that is the message we want to send across. We want to let people know and understand that love knows no boundaries and age is just a number,” Victoria said.
Kofi confirmed Victoria’s assertion and added that he had already consulted his two children and they have both given him the go-ahead to continue dating Victoria and push on with their plans for marriage.
Victoria revealed that she had already decided on what sort of wedding gown she wanted and everything was set for the wedding in December.
Kofi Adjorlolo is highly popular in both Ghanaian and Nigerian films. Victoria is, however, not so well known but has managed to chalk a fair amount of success in Ghana.
Some of the films she has appeared in are Ultimate Story, Trapped in a Cage, The Storm and After the Sunset. She also took part in the Next Movie Star reality show in 2014 and is host of the Celebrity Delivery show on Viasat 1.
