Unlike veteran actor, Zack Orji who cooks and washes plates for his wife, top actor, director and politician, Desmond Elliot has revealed he doesn’t cook or his wife.

Desmond Elliot who has been married to Victoria Elliot for 13 years with four children told Punch in a recent interview.

I don’t cook for my wife, I am sorry. I wish I could. I cannot cook and I also do not have the time. I try my best. No, it is not that I cannot cook for my wife but I cannot cook.”

My wife is a Calabar woman and she is very skillful in that area. So what I do is that once in a while, I go to the kitchen and boil water. I try my best but for the kids, they need my attention, so I try very hard to give it to them.”



  1. Oga,,it’s not under must dat a man should cook for his wife,,it’s always done willingly for love,,and bcos some men love to do it.And since u can’t and don’t av d tym for dat,,just keep it to urself and ur wife,,dont come and brainwash men dat can do it.Dat is ur own family issue,,and also a mutual understanding btw urself and ur wife.God bless u

  3. Everyone saying is their business some saying cute families blah blah… What are you doing towards getting yours?? Or towards managing yours wella… At least his wife was a nice woman back then before he got married to her… I mean no disrespect but women Dis days y’all ain’t loyal… Dressing half naked y’all doesn’t see love anymore but money.. Fools there you are admiring another person’s families… Go build your own… Dis is Africa not only Africa but the whole world men only cook for their women willingly it’s not necessary…. GOD bless married woman and men.. VENERATIONS

  4. Same here bros!… thought I was in this shoe alone.

    The truth is that I cannot cook and do not have the time as well, hence I can’t cook for my wife. When they travel out of town without me, I can boil water and that’s the end. My wife of over 10yrs is happy doing the cooking. Desmond, I’m sure alot of old schools are in your shoe!
