- Monday Itu, who went viral on social media after dancing joyfully at his child's dedication ceremony, has said he doesn't know why his wife loves him so much
- The young man's wife, Rose, said she doesn't see her husband as a physically challenged person
- According to the lady, they've been together since when she was still in high school, which was five years ago
The wife of a physically challenged man whose video went viral after dancing joyfully on the day of their child's dedication said she doesn't see her husband as a disabled person.
Though Monday Itu is yet to get married to Rose John, he describes her as his wife and intends to pay her bride price whenever he is financially buoyant.
Rose, who sells groundnuts to feed the family, said she and Monday have been together since she was 19 years and in high school. The 24-year-old lady said her parents rejected Monday when she took him home.
Despite her family's refusal, Rose said she insisted that she would be with Monday for the rest of his life.
Speaking with BBC News Pidgin, the young lady said even though her husband doesn't provide for the family because of his condition, she loves him unconditionally.
Monday said he learnt how to make shoes but he hasn't started practising because he has no money to buy equipment. According to the father of two, he sometimes feels jealous when he sees his able friends working to provide for their families.
The 29-year-old man said he does not know why his wife loves him unconditionally, adding that it is God that is performing wonders in his life.
In his words:
"If my wife wasn't with me, life would have been difficult for me. Things are difficult for me whenever she is not around, but when she comes back, everything returns back to normal."
The physically challenged man went viral when he danced to the altar with his wife for his baby's dedication. When the couple's video emerged on social media, many people were moved to tears.
