Citizen TV news anchor Yvonne Okwara had a witty response to a fan who asked why she doesn’t show off her husband on social media.
Okwara, who is married to Andrew Matole, was engaging her Instagram followers in a Q&A session on her birthday. Before the session, Yvonne Okwara posted a beautiful bouquet of flowers from her husband, and gushed, “This man knows the way to my heart! White lilies get me. Every time!”
This seems to have prompted one of her curious followers to pose the question: “Will, you ever share the pictures of your husband Matole? You seem to hide him so much.”
In her response, Yvonne employed wit and gave the fan an explanation that was enough to discourage any other curious fans out there.
She wrote, “Haha, I don’t hide him. He’s a grown man! He can put up his pictures when he wants to. I don’t control his social media, this is my page, not his!”
Just last week, Yvonne Okwara posted pictures with Mr Matole but the photos did not show his face.
Yvonne captioned the pics, “As we celebrate women’s month, I celebrate the great man who stands beside me, always! A self-assured, confident, intelligent, witty, successful man! #MForMatole #LoveWins”
Mr Matole, a veterinary surgeon, is 16 years older than Yvonne which could explain why some nosy fans think she hides her man.
In a past interview, Yvonne addressed their age difference and criticism from fans saying, “People talked. People said things. That’s what comes with having a job in the limelight, but again, no one lives my life but me. My husband is my best friend, we get along incredibly well, and none of these other issues have ever mattered.”
