#OSGspecial: For Ubi Franklin and Lilian Esoro; Its ‘Love Made Out Of This World’
This year, we’ve seen Damilola Adegbite, Susan Peters, Sonia Morales, Osas Ighodaro, and Dolapo Oni get married – and we know what you’re thinking. What other celebrity weddings could possibly be left to look forward to?With the plethora of celebrity weddings that have taken place so far in 2015, it seemed necessary for #OSG to shed more light on the most anticipated celebrity wedding of them all.
It’s hard to say which of these talented artists is the bigger star, but it’s easy to see how they wound up together. It was a clear case of mutual admiration between a talented artist manager and actress.
Born in Imo State, Lilian knew what she wanted from an early age, and followed her heart. Immediately after she completed her secondary education in 2006, her talents were discovered, leading to a spot on the TV show “Extended Family” and since then she has starred in a couple of soap operas, including award winning CLINIC MATTERS. A popular family sitcom where she plays the role of Nurse Abigail.
Around the same time, Lilian was hitting it big in the movie industry, including being nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy at the 2013 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, Ubi Franklin rose to fame as one of the most popular artiste managers in Nigeria. Ubi Franklin whose real name is Ubi Ekapong Ofem is the current founder and manager of Made Men Music Group; the music label which Iyanya , Selebobo, Tekno are signed on to.
“I asked God that I needed a woman to marry and settle down with. After I prayed about it for about a week, I met Lillian at a friend’s party. The day I met her, I saw the qualities I wanted in a woman I want to be with for the rest of my life.
On finding out who she was, the respected artist manager said, “I called her to ask and she told me she was an actress but preferred to keep a low profile. She said she does not like too much attention and all she wants is due diligence. She is not one of those actresses that seek for attention.”
On her career, the 29-year-old, said “I have no problem with her career. Everybody works hard to earn a living and as far as she is happy with what she does, that is the most important thing to me. All I want to do is to help her improve on whatever she is doing and also support her.
Here at #OSG, we wish Ubi Franklin and Lilian Usoro a blessed and beautiful life as One.
