Why My Wife Once Blocked Me On WhatsApp – Timi Dakolo


Nigerian musician, Timi Dakolo has revealed that his wife once blocked him on WhastApp over an argument. The father of three in a recent interview said there are times he and his wife have heated arguments despite their love for each other.

“We were having an argument on WhatsApp one day and she blocked me. Immediately, I drove home. When she returned, she said she did not want to drive while she was angry and that she also wanted me to bring my anger home so that we would talk about it.

“Human beings fight but whenever we do, it is not ‘sweet’ simply because my wife does not speak Pidgin English. I am from Bayelsa and when people fight (there), they talk in Pidgin English. But when we have misunderstanding and she speaks fluent English, it is always funny to me and so I laugh.”

Aside from the 'love fights', the 'Iyawo Mi' singer also recalled that one of the sweetest things she ever did for him was to plan a family vacation to one of his favourite spots.

“One of the sweetest things she has done is when she planned a vacation for the whole family, even though I contributed half of the money. My favourite vacation spot is Cape Town, South Africa because I like the scenery,” the singer said.

While commending his wife for her numerous contributions to his life, the rhythm and blues singer described her as the calmness in his life.

“My wife fixes me and that is the truth. I would love to do everything just like any other creative person but my wife is the one that advises me to make sure I do things one step at a time. “She is my calmness. My favourite place is in my house; it is not just my sitting room but my corner of the bed. I can scatter my books everywhere and still know where everything is, but my wife is not that kind of person. She is the type of person that is organised; she likes when everything is well arranged.

“The secret of my marriage is communication and it is our lifeline. Make your partner your person. Sometimes, it is not love that keeps a relationship but friendship. I can call my wife and tell her that I saw a fine girl and her face could look somehow but we would laugh about it.

“Sometimes when I am heading out, she could joke that I am going to see my girlfriend and we will just laugh about it. On some occasions, I could call her that I would get home late because I would be playing video game with my friends and she would understand.”
