Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) has revealed why actors struggle to remain faithful in marriage.


In a recent chat with Teju Babyface, the actor said male entertainers are “an easy” target for 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”.

Delilah and Jezebel are biblical figures known for their seductive and manipulative qualities.


“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.”


RMD tied the knot with Jumobi on December 20, 2000. The couple marked their 22nd wedding anniversary last year.

May Ellen-Ezekiel, the actor’s first wife, died in 1996.
