Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD), a seasoned Nollywood actor, has acknowledged that it is “very hard” for entertainers to stay faithful in marriage.
He said that desperate women frequently pursue married male celebrities in an effort to seduce them into adultery.
In the most recent episode of the Teju Babyface Deep Dive Podcast, which is hosted by comedian Olateju Oyelakin, aka Teju Babyface, the 62-year-old thespian made this statement.
Mofe-Damijo said, “It’s very hard for entertainers to be faithful in marriage because of the line of work that we are in. Every one of us is married, we are the target. Look at how women are, how can you escape it? Women are like Delilah, they are like Jezebel, they prepare… The only way the enemy can perpetrate their real intention is to constantly aim at the image of God or the symbol of authority in any home. Then shut it down. It’s like shooting a General on the battlefield. You drop him and then the battalion scatter. Their mission is to take down the head of the family.
“So, it’s very difficult [to be faithful]. You have to get to the point where your wife understands what she is up against as well. Because if your wife is not up to speed on what she is up against, then you would be left open.”
RMD is married to television personality Jumobi Adegbesan. The couple got married after he lost his first wife, talk show host May Ellen ‘MEE’ Mofe-Damijo in 1996.
