Popular Nollywood actor, Junior Pope Odonwodo, has described Hollywood actor Will Smith as a real man for standing by his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith.
He stated this in reaction to a video of Will Smith showing support to his wife at her book launch event in Baltimore.
During a brief speech, Will laughed off online comments about Jada’s recent revelations about their marriage.
Recall that the celebrity couple have been in the news since Jada disclosed that they separated in 2016 and have lived apart since then, with Jada referring to the late American rapper Tupac as her soulmate.
This caused an uproar on social media, with many criticizing Jada while others expressed sympathy for Will Smith.
However, this didn’t stop Will and their two kids, Jaden and Willow, and his son from his first marriage, Trey, from joining Jada at her book launch.
During the event, Will openly declared his unwavering love for Jada, emphasizing that he would stand by her for life.
He acknowledged the sacrifices she made for him and his family and her unwavering support during his times of need. He further described their marriage as a “sloppy public experiment in unconditional love.”
Will said in part, “Jada is the best friend I have ever had on this planet and I am going to show up for her and support her for the rest of my life.”
