Veteran Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo has revealed his marriage is not a celebrity marriage as he reacts to reports of having a side chick in Lagos.
According to @gistcove, RMD is cheating on his wife with a lady identified as Chioma Ilomuanya. The lady who is said to be an interior decorator has allegedly been dating the actor for a while, and both of them are deeply in love with each other.
Since the report went viral on social media, the actor has remained silent. However, in an interview with Nigerian journalist Chude Jideonwo, RMD refuted reports of having a side chick in Lagos or dumping his wife.
However, he often tells his wife he’s not a celebrity, and their marriage is not a celebrity marriage, and she has come to terms with it.
In his words: Then there’s another story of me having another young wife in Lagos and I’m gonna leave my wife soon. You know, so it’s really difficult sometimes for her to navigate through all of this. This is the age of social media, there are people who, they look at you and without any regard for the sanctity of your marriage or your home, all you want to do is just tear me down like oh he’s in love with somebody else, he’s going to leave his wife tomorrow, like how do you even wake up and do that, what have I done to you? Have I come to you to abuse you and your marriage? Why do people like to see celebrity marriages crash? And what had helped is that I’ve never really seen myself as a celebrity and so my marriage is not a “celebrity marriage” and so she has kept it”
