Nollywood actor and TV Presenter, Tricia Eseigbe has revealed how Northern Nigerian legend, Zaaki Azzay’s advice helped her get a husband over a decade ago.


In a birthday post celebrating Zaaki, she wrote about how in 2007, he discouraged her from buying a Mercedes G Wagon so she wouldn’t chase prospective suitors away. According to him, a woman in a G-Wagon of her own would have little or no chances of finding a husband.

Tricia heeded his advice and got married in 2009.

We cannot say for sure if it was the absence of the G-Wagon, that made it so, but she has been married for eleven years and recently became a mum of a beautiful baby.
