I’ve written about Fela and Tara Durotoye many times on my site (See here and here to know more about them) and I’m writing about them again. Suck it up, already….LOL. [Just kidding] The thing is that, in my research thus far, they are the most publicly visibly affectionate African couple in the spotlight. I can’t wait to add more African couples to the list as I explore
Anyway, Fela and Tara celebrated their 11th marriage anniversary on Saturday, May 12, 2012. Coincidentally, it was also (husband) Fela’s 41st birthday. So, the couple got married on his birthday. What a wonderful birthday present: marrying the woman of your dreams!!!
Five days before her husband’s birthday & their anniversary, Tara tweeted: [This is her exact tweet copied] ”Announcement: its my hubbys bday on sat 12may and our 11th wedding anniversary!send him much love.”
Two days later (3 days before the day), she tweeted the following: ”About to embark on a dream anniversary/birthday getaway with my knight in shiny armour. Every year we take timeout we ve been to ghana, Dakar,newyork,cotonou. 11years after 3 busy boys!lol.multiple seasons of our lives but we v committed to making it a great time all d way.”
Congratulations to this exemplary couple leading the way in business and entrepreneurship but also inspiring many in various aspects of their lives! They are public figures who prove that, though life is never perfect, you can achieve alot and be truly successfully as individuals in your career and in your marriage.
