One thing I love about him was his soft hand; he had a very soft palm and a dashing smile that could arrest the most hardened soul,” Sammie Peters told Asabe Afrika, an entertainment site, in 2014.
“Of course he was a budding musician with lots of attention here and there but in 1982 we did our traditional marriage and from there the long journey started, we eventually did our white wedding in 1995. It was not an easy period, so many things happened in between that time but love conquered all” she further said.
