Nollywood Celebrity Gist: Popular Nollywood Actor Ramsey Nouah, famous for his romantic roles has praised his wife of 15 years Emeila Philips-Nouah on how she has helped to sustain his home and career.
In a recent interview with the Premium Times held at Eko Club Surulere Lagos, he revealed he is different from the kind of person he portrays in movies and his wife understands his romantic roles.
Below are some of the excerpts from Ramsey Nouah interview:
Premium Times: Aside from acting, what have you been up to lately?
Ramsey Nouah: I have been spending time with my family. Whenever the need arises, i get involved in humanitarian and charitable activities. It has been more about film, family and going back to the society.
Premium Times: Your marriage appears to have the test of time. You have been married for 15 years now, some of your colleagues have been unlucky in this regard.
Ramsey Nouah: Contrary to a widely notion, the success of a marrage heavily rest on the woman. But these days, a lot of marriages are based on equality. A woman wants to get 50 percent of whatever she is getting in the marriage back from the man. This has led to the breakdown of many marriages. From time, our mothers used to be the women that held their marriages.
They were in charge of the home. Our mothers took charge of everything but today, women don’t want that kind of responsibility. Hence, it is affecting marriages.
Premium Times: So your wife has faced well in that regard?
Ramsey Nouah: My wife belongs to the category of “Our Mothers”. She believes in mistunning our marriage and holding it strong. So whenever i am asked how we have been able to keep it together, i tell my wife is the woman who actually held our home.
Premium Times: Are you romantic?
Ramsey Nouah: Don’t judge me by my movies, i don’t think i am romantic. My wife thinks i am not romantic either.
Premium Times: Some say you don’t take your wife to red carpet because she is not beautiful.
Ramsey Nouah: That is what they think. My wife is very cute. Maybe because my wife is not loud or flashy when it comes to make-up or wearing long weaves. She is very natural and she knows that i love her natural looks.
The couple have been married for 15 years and they have 3 kids together (Desiree, Camil and Quincy).
