Mike Bamiloye, the founder of the film production company Mount Zion Faith Ministries, recently unveiled the endearing name his wife, Gloria, calls him after 35 years of marital bliss.
Despite the passage of time, Gloria still refers to him as “Bro Mike,” a nickname that originated during their courtship and has endured throughout their married life.
As the couple celebrates their 35th wedding anniversary, Mike shares his thoughts on the nickname and expresses his determination to change it before their 40th anniversary.
Gloria’s Enduring Nickname:
Even after 35 years of marriage, Mike Bamiloye reveals that his wife, Gloria, continues to affectionately call him “Bro Mike.”
This name was initially adopted during their courtship and has remained unchanged ever since.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Mike shared a picture of Gloria and expressed his amazement at her steadfastness in using the nickname throughout their journey together.
The First Hint of Change:
Mike recounts a humorous incident involving their firstborn child, who surprised them by calling him “aa-aa-yite!” Instead of trying to adjust to traditional terms of endearment like “sweetie,” “honey,” or “baby,” they attempted to introduce new names into their vocabulary.
However, these efforts proved unsuccessful, and their son’s unconventional pronunciation prompted them to rethink their approach.
Acceptance and Laughter
In an attempt to demonstrate their efforts to adjust, Gloria decided to call Mike by various affectionate terms in front of his mother.
Despite calling out names like “honey,” “sweetie,” and “sweatheart” repeatedly, Mike failed to register that she was addressing him.
It was only when Gloria called him “Bro Mike” that he responded promptly, leading to laughter from his mother.
Since then, their marriage has spanned 35 years, and both Mike and Gloria have continued the endearing tradition of “Bro Mike.”
Looking Ahead to the Future:
Although Mike has embraced the nickname over the years, he makes a lighthearted promise to break the jinx before their 40th wedding anniversary.
With their children now married and starting families of their own, Mike expresses his determination to introduce a new name into their marital vocabulary.
He jokingly anticipates a future scenario where their grandchildren may end up calling him “braaa-hightee!” as he seeks to evolve from the cherished moniker bestowed upon him by Gloria.
After 35 years of marriage, Mike Bamiloye reveals that his wife, Gloria, has lovingly called him “Bro Mike” throughout their journey together.
