My friends betted my marriage won’t last for a month – Azigiza
Former disc jockey now pastor Azigiza junior has shared a challenge that was thrown at him on his wedding day.
The challenge has kept him married for 18years.
“At my wedding, my friends were betting that my marriage wouldn’t last for two weeks…so I was determined to make it last,” he said.
Born Victor Kpapko Addo, the radio personality said he faced a lot of tension at home growing up because of the parenting style his ex-service military father adopted.
“I was very intentional about my marriage and how I wanted it to be because of the tension I faced at home with my ex-service military dad”
“The night before our wedding I remember calling my wife and asking her if she was ready for the marriage…I was ready to cancel it if she had said no,” he said.
Pastor Azigiza junior and wife, Trudy have been married for 18 years with two children.

In the early 90s, Azigiza Jnr was known among the hottest entertainers in showbiz.
He played at nightclubs like Miracle Mirage, the Golden Egg, and Glenns in Accra.
He also worked as a radio presenter on Joy FM where he hosted Joy Beach Jam, later he hosted Guinness music for your dancing feet on GTV, video vibes, and the Azigiza Show.
In 1993, he has crowned the Best DJ on in Africa.
In 1998, he shocked the showbiz industry in Ghana when he announced that he had become born again Christian, meaning he had shunned the secular work that brought him fame and wealth.
In April 2018 Rev Azigiza Jnr in an interview with the Graphic Showbiz told the story of how he became born again, revealing that:
“I would say I was ‘arrested’ by the Holy Spirit. It was a gradual realisation because all the things I used to be interested in didn’t appeal to me anymore.
“I used to smoke a lot but cigarettes became bitter, I used to be a big player and had a number of sugar mummies but I stopped pursuing them, I stopped clubbing and distanced myself from my friends,” he disclosed.
