Age certainly ain’t nothing but a number for 28 year-old Ugandan musician Guvnor Ace (born Ronald Ssemawele) and 68 year-old Swedish Mona-Lisa Larsson his newly-wed wife. The couple tied the knot in a civil union in Kampala and their wedding has been a social media sensation not least because of the lovebirds’ four decade-long age difference.

The dreadlocked musician posted pictures of the wedding on his Facebook page, looking sharp in a black tuxedo while his bride sported a simple sleeveless white dress.

Guvnor, who has already changed his Facebook status to “married to Mona-Lisa Larsson”, says he’s not ashamed to flaunt his love for Lisa.

“I am not the first to love an older woman. People do it all the time…People who love older women hide it. But I am not ashamed of what I am doing” he told Monitor in an interview.

The singer has also been accused for “#DatingAnAncestor” for her money but refutes this saying “When we met, I had my own money. I was living well. True, she has her money but I love her for who she is. But we help each other financially, just like other couples do”.

“Many hated on us but love conquered all and the world witnessed this when I put the ring on the woman of my life,” he said on Facebook.

Guvnor has already released two singles in Lisa’s honour titled: Mona Lisa and Mukadde. In one of his songs, Guvnor sang, “The one you call elderly, I discovered secrets in her and she gives me love to the fullest”.

The wedding has certainly set tongues wagging on social media from derogatory to congratulatory messages.
