Some weekends ago, Sammie Peters, the pretty wife of Sir Shina Peters turned 60 and she marked it in grand style at the Time Square in Lagos.
The day would just have been mistaken for a wedding anniversary because of the public display of love shown by Shina and Sammie Peters.
They were engaged in hugging spree and got emotional by kissing each other to the admiration of all. Shina and Sammie Peters have been together for over 3 decades and their love keeps getting strong.
Shina Peters had initially gifted her a brand new toy on her birthday eve, an action that made Sammie lose control of herself.
In their interviews, Shina Peter reveals why he could not have married anyone else, “Choosing my wife was destiny; it was not my making or hers. We were destined to be together and I feel everyone has someone destined for him or her.
When I think about the fact that I am happily married, it is like a miracle”. Sammie also testified in one of her interviews in 2014 on how they first met 35 years ago.
“We actually met in 1981 in Lagos, we lived in the same neighborhood and it was love at first sight. He was a very young and intelligent man but very ambitious towards his career. “Of course he was a budding musician with lots of attention here and there but in 1982 we did our traditional marriage and from there the long journey started, we eventually did our white wedding in 1995. It was not an easy period, so many things happened in between that time but love conquered all” she further said.
Their love story is one of the most interesting love stories in Nigeria’s music entertainment industry and through it all Shina and Sammie Peters have remained inseparable.
