Yoruba actor, Lateef Adedimeji has expressed his opinions about marriage and how it changes you.
The actor who got married this year to his colleague, Adebimpe Oyebade, also known as Mo Bimpe stated that women should not endure domestic violence because marriage is not something to die for.
He further revealed that a woman is not a slave to her husband so she should be treated right.
The actor spoke up against domestic violence as he stated why would you beat up your fellow human in the first and that it’s all shades of wrong to do so.
Lateef also advised that if you know that you can’t control your anger you should walk away instead of hitting the person
The actor also revealed that his life had changed ever since he got married and he has to compromise now.
see his statement below.
” A woman is not a slave to her husband, and she wasn’t given to you as a housemaid. Why would you beat up your fellow human in the first place, over what? Whatever it is, once you know you cannot control your anger, and it’s getting to you raising your hand, the best thing is to just walk away and come back when you are calmer. But if you feel the situation keeps getting uncontrollable, then both parties can go their separate ways. Marriage is not something to die for.”
Asked if he still has a ‘toaster’ after he got married, he said,’ People would always ‘toast’ you (laughs).”
“Maybe the way I work. Before now, I used to go from one location to another. Right now, I have to slow down a little because I also have to relax with my wife before taking on another job. I don’t know many children that we are expecting.
I don’t know (laughs). But I wish to have just three children by the grace of God.”
Recalling how he ventured into acting, the multi-talented actor said, “My acting started in 1999. I’ve been in the industry for quite some time, so basically, I love it. It’s something that I started in secondary school, having been trained by a non-governmental organization to be an educator and counselor through dance and songs. But in the long run, I realized that this is something that gives me money. And if I have this talent, what is the essence of me going elsewhere? Let me start making money from it.”
