Age is just a number,if two people love each other,they don't worry about their age difference .Peter Okoye of P’Square and Lola Omotayo’s love story is compelling and amazing. The couple have been in a relationship for over eight years before they finally tied the knot on Sunday, November 17, 2013.
There has been a lot of talk and whispers about their marriage, the family issues and the fact that Lola is by far older than Peter Okoye has been trending. But why did she decide to marry someone who’s her junior?
Below is Lola Omotayo’s stand on their age difference… Lola, who was a Business Development Director at FKG2m a marketing agency in Lagos, had told the story of how she and Peter met and how the relationship started:
“My agency handles some of British American Tobacco brands and P’Square was doing a show for us at one of our events in Enugu. Though I had met Peter a couple of times before then, at the show there was some chemistry.
He asked for my number and I refused giving it to him. I told him ‘if you really want to know me, you have to find my number’. So he took it as a task and found my number and the rest is history.” Lola, said to be in her 30s then and Peter in his 20s, was not disturbed by the age difference. Her reason:
“Like I said, Peter is an old soul and he always tells me that I’m like a 23-year-old. Age is just a number. Right now, you can see it around the world. Demi Moore, Usher and some known people. Even in Nigeria here, they are dating people far older than their age. So, we shouldn’t base it on the age factor. He doesn’t make me feel like he’s younger than me.”
At least eight people died when a police helicopter fell out of the sky ‘like a stone’ and crashed through the roof of one of Glasgow’s best known pubs.The fatalities included everyone in the aircraft – two police officers and a civilian pilot.

They were constable Tony Collins, constable Kirsty Nelis and the pilot captain Dave Traill.
Bayelsa State Government has sent 250 youths from the state in a bid to patronize the academy established by the former Niger Delta militant, Asari Dokubo, one of President Jonathan's supporters for his re-election bid in 2015 polls.The scheme was announced in Yenegoa at a reception for 200 Bayelsa graduates of a six-month agricultural training programme at the Songhai Integrated System, Cotonou.
The training programme on automobile technology, cinematography, photography and design will be held at the Amachree Royal Academy, Benin Republic, which is owned by the ex-militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo.
The 250 trainees are scheduled to depart for Benin Republic on today December 1, 2013. The cost of the project was not disclosed.
At the reception, which also doubled as a send-off orientation for the 250 youths going for the vocational training, Gov. Seriake Dickson declared his administration's commitment to youth empowerment, and charged them to take their training seriously.
The State Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr. Thomas Commander, congratulated the graduates for the successful completion of the programme in spite of some challenges.
He expressed the state government's desire to engage some of the graduands, but disclosed that those who intend to be self-reliant, would be encouraged and supported by the government.
It would be recalled that the ex-militant leader, Dokubo, had a brush with the authorities in Benin Republic last week, but was released days later following the intervention of Nigeria leader Goodluck Jonathan.
