Is Frederick Leonard Married?
No, please. Frederick is yet to find his missing rib. Although, it was rumored he is gay, homosexual; Frederick didn’t waste time to debunk this allegations as people has already linked his marital status to his sexuality.
We live in a time where marriages are ending every week for the wrong reasons. Let’s just say that I am being very careful. I am looking for someone who understands family values. I am looking for someone who understands what keeps partners in marriage. What makes a relationship work is not just love. Love is not enough.
What keeps you going is the decision to make it work. I am looking for a square peg in a square hole, someone whose life is patterned the way mine is patterned as well because it just makes it a whole lot easier. So for me, love only doesn’t keep relationship going, love is just a by-product, something by the side. Don’t get me wrong.
Yes, it’s important. That’s why I create love story. Love is something that creates that bonding, affection and the condiments that help relationship to flourish, but what keeps both of you together is the decision to make it work. That decision gives birth to humility, understanding, tolerance and compromise.
Valuing your partner is important but you rarely find that in this generation. We used to have that in Olu Jacob and Aunty Joke’s generation. Because of enculturation and imbibing the western culture, something has shifted and that’s why we have a lot of broken marriages, baby daddies and babies mama all over the place.
So, I am praying to God fervently because I do not want to fall into that hole, hence the delay. I am very careful because I do not want a broken home. I was brought up in a very beautiful family and I think that’s how God plans it to be.
I have always been a fashion kid. I think it’s my mom’s influence on my personality. I remember as a kid, she used to take me to Lagos Island and she would tell me, ‘Emeka’ which is my native name, ‘point what you want.’ Sometimes, she guides my choices by telling me, ‘oh, pick that colour and match it up with this colour’. So, I am pretty much a fashionable person. I don’t live above my means and I don’t care what societal pressure or social media says. I try to live within my means but also look good. Looking good doesn’t mean you wear the most expensive outfits but once I can afford them, I go for them. It just comes naturally to me to put on the right stuff and step out there looking good and putting smiles on people’s face so when they look at me, smile and say, ‘you look good’ and I would reply, ‘I’m humbled, thanks very much mahn!’
I think it creates a void for attention which I give to them. I try as much as possible to respond to thousands of direct messages on my Instagram handle. I shall be doing meet and greet for Void movie at the cinema. That’s part of filling up the void. As it relates to the urge to meet Frederick Leonard, I am out there and I relate with them. I ensure we have cordial relationship. You can’t get intimate and marry all your female fans.
I stay indoors. I am not the party type. I don’t fancy drinking or smoking, it’s not my style. I have very small cycle of family and friends. I just relax indoors, go to church, visit family and friends when necessary. Filming is just very stressful and tedious as much as it’s fun.
Pretty much, I am one who likes to be indoors, relax and have a good time with people that are very close to me before work takes me again because I am really always on the move.
