Tope Alabi reveals she almost didn’t marry her husband, Soji

For how long have you been married?

We have been married for over 16 years.

How and when did you meet?

Soji: We met around 1994. Then, I was working as a studio engineer in Lagos. She came for the production of some movie sound tracks. I was the one producing the sound tracks for her. In 1998, we were working on her first album, when I proposed to her to be my wife.

Tope, what was the attraction in Soji? Did you marry him because you thought he would be of use to your business?

Tope: No. I believe it was the plan of God for us to get married. Before he proposed, I never saw Soji as a man that had the standards I desired. Then, I was a ‘big girl’ in the movie industry. I have had experiences of many things in life. So, imagine a man, who was staying in one studio and working at all times! He was too gentle for my liking and his stature was not encouraging either. But I discovered that God’s purpose for our life must come to pass. Then, I never knew that I would be a vessel in God’s hands. I never knew I had His grace in my life. I never knew God had planned that we would come together and do exploit in His kingdom. I was just going about producing sound tracks for movies and I was not into any ministry. Really, I love my husband.
