Ghanaian award-winning actor Van Vicker and his wife Adjoa Vicker are celebrating 17 years of marriage
To mark the anniversary, Van Vicker took to his Instagram page to share some sweet words about his wife; how they met, the number of children they have together and some insightful message about his struggle to fame.
Van Vick described today as ‘extremely special’ in his life and said on October 16, 2003, he took a bold step by marrying Adjoa.
According to him, before meeting Adjoa, he had no university degree at age 26 due to lack of financial support.
He also added that he was living ‘hand-to-mouth’, lived in a small rented apartment, had a rickety car that made him acquire skills of that of a mechanic, had no real furniture and embraced hard work as a principle to my success struggle.about:blank
But when he met Adjoa, he knew he had literally ‘bought’ wealth and his life changed that day.
Van Vicker shared a photo with his wife and accompanied with the caption: “So today is an extremely special day in my life.
The day I took that bold step to join the ‘Men’ of this World, the day one of my dream was accomplished; I relished the idea of being married young.
October 16, 2003
I had just started life (26yrs), no university degree cos I had no funds or support to pay the tuition few years earlier, working hand to mouth, living in a small rented apartment, a rickety car that made me acquire skills of that of a mechanic, no real furniture, embraced hard work as a principle to my success struggle, etc.
But on this day, I knew I had literally ‘bought’ WEALTH.
Don’t get me wrong, she had no known inheritance of any sort nor were her parents well to do as rumour has it.
My life changed on that day. I knew I made the right decision when she bore our first daughter in 2004. I felt the way my mother felt when she had me in 1977. Joy was an understatement.
You see, riches is not necessarily the physical cash. Riches is love, happiness, sharing, one spirit, planning as a team, following through together, supporting each other, the list is endless. Riches is making real investment in yourself, your spouse, following your visceral reactions, being guided by Divinity, etc.
