How Mide Martins Bad Friends Almost Crashed Our Marriage – Afeez Owo Abiodun
Nollywood filmmaker Afeez Owo Abiodun has revealed what led to the crisis that plagued his marriage back in 2016.
The father of two in a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, said his wife, Mide Martins took advice from wrong friends who wanted to end her marriage.
“There will always be challenges in a home but it depends on how you handle them.
Friends nearly ruined our marriage; my wife was wrongly advised. As we speak, she
still regrets all those things she did or said. Couples will always fight, but they don’t
need to let their neighbours know about it. We’ve made our mistakes and we have
learnt from it. We don’t pray for that anymore.”
The actor who is a devout Muslim said he refused to marry more than one wife to prevent trouble for himself:
“My father did not try to marry many wives because he was a peaceful person
and I take after him in that regard. Though the Quran permits us to marry more
than a wife, I am not interested in it. It will bring more problems for me and I
don’t want it,” he stated.
On how he met Mide Martins, the actor said:
“God just said she would be my wife. When my ex-girlfriend cheated on me then,
she was one of the people who begged on her behalf but I had already made up my
mind. It was after a while I started dating Mide. We have been married for 17 years.
I have known my wife for 25 years. My wife is like my mother and I love her so much.
She also sees me as her father.”
