Popular TV Couple, Mr And Mrs Kogberegbe Reveals How They Have Been Able To Stay Together For 10 Years
Mr. and Mrs. Kogberegbe, a well-known TV couple, are celebrating ten years on screen together. They have been able to stay together for a decade because they are passionate about positively impacting the marriages of their viewers, according to the duo of Olanrewaju Olakanlu (Mr Kogberegbe) and Oladunni Badru (Mrs Kogberegbe).
The family drama series, which airs on Africa Magic Yoruba, has promoted peaceful relationships amongst couples over the years.
“Our goal for this brand is not to earn money, but to change lives,” Mr Kogberegbe said in an interview with Saturday Beats. As a result, our accomplishments are measured by the feedback we receive from couples on how we’ve assisted them in living together as a unit. The fact that we are assisting young couples in gaining an understanding of what marriage entails, as well as preparing them for what is likely to occur and how to deal with it, is a significant accomplishment for us. The accolades and endorsements we receive are really a bonus. That is what has allowed us to survive for so long.”
Mrs. Kogberegbe also added that they were always ecstatic when they received testimonies from viewers who had been affected by the show.
She said, “We strongly believe in the union called marriage and our fulfilment comes from helping couples resolve their issues and live together in love and harmony. The fact that our drama series has a touch of comedy to it doesn’t make it lose its impact. The drama series is more than comedy. Therefore, we are always glad when we get testimonies and reviews from fans and viewers about how our series has helped them keep their homes.”
Speaking about their highlights in the last 10 years, Olakanlu, who plays the role of husband on the show, added, “In the last 10 years, we have met with several dignitaries, including religious leaders and traditional rulers such as the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi. We were overwhelmed with joy to find out that the Alaafin of Oyo is a fan of our drama series. We have been able to organise more than three shows in the United States of America because people love to see ‘Mr and Mrs Kogberegbe’.”
Revealing their plans for the ‘next decade of the show’, Badru, who plays the role of the wife on the show, said, “We want to tackle those issues that religious leaders are trying to avoid. For the next decade of the show, we want to have our multimedia building where kids can come for vacations, birthdays and watch movies. We also want to have TV and radio stations, at home and abroad.”
On some of the challenges they face, Mrs Kogberegbe stated that coming to Nigeria to shoot new seasons of the show had not been easy because they had to leave their families behind in the United States and travel to Nigeria. She also added that they often spent a lot of money on air tickets and hotel accommodation.
