Veteran Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, popularly known as RMD, has admitted that it is very hard for entertainers to be faithful in their marriages.
He said married male celebrities are often targeted by desperate ladies, who aim to lure them into infidelity.
The 62-year-old thespian stated this in the latest episode of the ‘Teju Babyface Deep Dive Podcast’, hosted by comedian, Olateju Oyelakin, a.k.a Teju Babyface.
“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 scatters. 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,” said Mofe-Damijo.
When asked what a woman who knows her man cheats should do, RMD as he is fondly called, said she should protect her man.
“He will fall sometimes and fall really bad, but she has to be able to help to pick the man up.
“I am able to get protected because that is the kind of woman I have. That’s the rock of my being. I have the best wife in the world because it has to be. That’s the reason why I can go out there and’ flex’ because I know who is behind me,” he added.
RMD has been married to former television personality, Jumobi Adegbesan, for 23 years after his first wife, May Ellen Ezekiel, a journalist, died in 1996.
