The Heartwarming Story of Paul Okoye and His Wife – How they Met, Age Difference, Their children and much more (Photos)

Most people know as a member of a famous duo P-Square or as a solo artist RudeBoy a.k.a. King Rudy. However, the fact that he is also a wonderful father and husband often escapes media’s attention. Therefore, today we are going to talk about wife and his adorable children. Check it out!

The story of Paul Okoye and wife

Paul Okoye (born November 18, 1981) met his future wife Anita Isama (born November 8, 1988) all the way back in 2004, when he was attending the University of Abuja. Even despite a significant age difference (Anita was only 16, when Paul was already 23), the two hit it off right away and became close friends.
In two years, their friendship had grown into something more, so Paul and Anita started dating. In her interview to NAIJ, Anita recalled that she was head over heels in love with Paul and that she knew him better than she knew herself. Anita also said that his growing popularity never affected her much, and that she always just took him for who he was.

It has always appeared as if these two were just made for each other. They enjoy spending their free time together by going on bike rides, relishing in the outdoors, playing beach volleyball or even just watching TV. The only things they could never agree on, were interior design, style and fashion, but those were of minor importance.
All that said, the couple did not seem to think about tying the knot up until the birth of their first child. On April 11, 2013, Anita gave birth to their son Andre in Atlanta, Georgia. It was probably what influenced Paul to make a move and finally propose to her.

On March 22, 2014, Anita Isama officially became Anita Okoye. The two got traditionally married in Port Harcourt and legalised their union two years ago at the Ikoyi Registry.
You most likely know everything there is to know about Paul Okoye by now. However, you might not be aware of the fact that Anita is actually much more than just Paul Okoye’s wife. She has a degree in Law and an MBA, and she is an entrepreneur, author and philanthropist.

One of her ventures is called #TheCashewAppleProject, the goal of which is to uncover the hidden jewels of Africa. The project began with Anita’s book called The ABCs of Africa, which you can pre-order on Anita’s website (
If you want to see what Paul and Anita are up to these days, you can follow them on Instagram (@rudeboypsquare and @anita_okoye respectively).
Now that we have talked so much about the happy couple, it only makes sense to talk about their beautiful children.

As we have mentioned before, the couple had their first child back in 2013. Today, little Andre is not so little anymore, as he is already four years old. Time flies!
