RMD: WHY ACTORS STRUGGLE TO REMAIN FAITHFUL IN MARRIAGE
Last week, Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) argued that male actors struggle to remain faithful in their marriage because they are exposed to “seductive and manipulative” women.
RMD, who gained prominence in Nollywood for his part in the late 80’s television soap opera titled ‘Ripples’, said due to the nature of their profession, actors are exposed to “Delilah and Jezebel”.
“It is very hard to be faithful in marriage because of the line of work that we are in. Every one of us that is married, we are the target. Look at how women are, how can you escape it? Women are like Delilah, they are like Jezebel,” the 62-year-old actor said.
“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 is 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 is very difficult. 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.”
REMINISCE WARNS TROLLS
Reminisce warned social media trolls to desist from using his family to chase clout.
The warning came after an X user commented on Reminisce’s tweet, asking if the rapper had made the post because he had just received the results of a DNA test.
In response, the rapper said he would not tolerate anyone using his family to chase clout on social media.
He added that he would “fish out” anyone who did so, even if they tried to hide behind any form of anonymity.
