Yomi Gold: I Divorced My Wife Because Our Marriage Was Not Working
Nollywood actor Yomi Gold has finally confirmed his marriage crash after days of no response.
The actor in a chat with Saturday Beats stressed that he left his marriage because it didn’t work out.
Here are his words:
“Of what good would it be to people if they can’t allow me to be the ‘driver’ of my own car (sic)? Why should they behave like they are perfect? Anything can happen. The society is quick to judge when they are not the one wearing the shoes. I decided not to talk about it because I own my life. The most important thing is for me is to be alive. If anything bad should happen, I would be on my own. I don’t owe anybody an explanation; I just want to live my life. As time goes on, people will see for themselves.
“Leaving a marriage that is not working is more honourable than making a mess of it. If people know what really happened I don’t know what they would be saying. I don’t need it for publicity; I am a very shy person and a gentleman. I know I am a good man. I don’t think I need to go on social media to talk about anything,” he said.
The most important thing about life is to keep going. I am conscious of protecting my name and having more friends than enemies.
“As a public figure, stories about me will always be out there even though I try to keep some information about myself private. One of the prices to pay for being a public figure is that your stories will be out there even if you try to stop it. Somehow, some information about your personal life will still get out there.
“When people talk about me online, one of the best things I do is not to react or ignite the fire; I move on. I am just like every other person; the only difference is that I am a celebrity and I don’t allow it to get to me. The most important thing is to be happy, if we deny ourselves of it, we have denied ourselves of our birthright”.
