Friends gave my wife bad advice to ruin our marriage –Afeez Owo

Married to actress Mide Martins, Yoruba actor and film-maker, Afeez Owo, has revealed the factors that almost affected his marriage sometime ago. Recall that sometime in 2016, his wife claimed on social media that her husband had abandoned her and the kids.

In an encounter with Sunday Scoop, Owo didn’t try to run away from the crisis that once rocked his marriage. But, according to him, his wife took the wrong advice from friends who wanted to cause havoc in their home.

Here are his words;
“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.”

He also rubbished claims that the reported fight was a publicity stunt for a movie, saying people were fond of spreading rumours.

Despite being a Muslim, Owo said he would never marry more than one wife as he didn’t want 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."
