The generally held perception is that celebrity marriages don’t last and over the last few years a number of divorces on that front have given it some truth.
Musician, Okyeame Kwame, says he doesn’t believe in that notion about celebrity marriages as according to him, all marriages have problems and not just that of celebrities.
For him, he wants to get rid of that perception and he and his wife Annica are well on their way to doing so as they celebrated nine years of marriage on Tuesday, January 16.
There are so many other celebrity marriages that are also beating the odds and going strong and we bring you some of them today.
Kojo Antwi and Rocklyn
Kojo Antwi and Rocklyn have been married for over three decades and in all that time, there have been no reports of marital strife although we are sure they have their own disagreements.

Before all these public celebrity weddings, there was Tony Baffoe and Kalsoume Sinare’s huge wedding in 1994. He was a popular footballer and she was a successful model and actress and their marriage, done according to Muslim custom, attracted a lot of big names.
