Behind every successful man, there’s a woman. But Nollywood star, Femi Adebayo has proof that the saying is not always true.
In a short interview with Sunday Scoops, Femi Adebayo, who rarely speaks about his divorce to his first wife, spoke about it saying his wife never supported his career and one thing men should learn is to marry someone who understands them.
Giving a hint into what led to the demise of his first marriage, he said:
“When it comes to marriage, it is important to be with someone who understands you and accepts you totally. My first wife was uncomfortable with my profession as an actor, but that is what I love doing. Acting gives me joy and I will continue doing it as long as I can. I cannot imagine myself doing anything else without being miserable. I studied Law but I am not practicing it and that should tell you that I am following my passion.”
He however spoke about his marriage to his second wife after 7 years of celibacy saying it has been heaven on earth for him.
On his young marriage, he said:
“I don’t like talking about my marriage because I have the right to my privacy. Even though I am a celebrity, and lots of people always want to know what’s going on with me, my fans understand why I have decided to shield my wife from public glare. But I can tell you that I am really enjoying my marriage and it is pure bliss. I was without a wife for seven years and you know what that means for a man, but now, I am happy that I made the right decision,” he said with a glow on his face.”
