Nigerian comedian, singer and actress, Helen Paul Bamisile popularly known as Tatafo says she knew her husband was too ‘stingy’ before she agreed to tie the knot with him.
As to weather the man has change from his stinginess, we are yet to know…
According to Helen, the man was able to win her with doughnuts and soft drinks that he supplied to her and colleagues at work.
“He was a friend to my boss. While he always saw me as too playful and jumpy, I saw him as too stingy. Those days when my boss’ colleagues came visiting, they always reached out to us when leaving. They gave us money which we used to buy doughnuts and soft drinks but my husband never gave us anything.
“On that fateful day, I summoned courage and as he was leaving, I told him, ‘sir, you don’t buy us anything any time you come but we really like you. If you can be buying us doughnuts and soft drinks, we would be very grateful’. He started laughing, so I quickly added, ‘sir, it’s not only me o. My colleagues are also involved, so please don’t tell our boss’.
“We were so happy I asked for his phone number which he gave me. And then I gave his number to my friends and we all started calling to thank him. He realised that we really desired the doughnuts and soft drinks so whenever he came by, he would give us money for doughnuts and soft drinks.
“He never failed to deliver whenever he showed up and we never stopped thanking him. And then one day, he took a good look at me and said ‘baby, I love you’ and the rest is history,” Helen narrated in a recent interview with The Sun.
