Renowned Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, opens up about her life’s “greatest regret.”
The movie icon shared how she felt compelled to marry her best friend, who was also the choir director, due to pressure from a church where she served as a choir member, during an interview with popular media personality Teju Babyface.
Stella emphasized that while as friends they were great, as a couple they didn’t work and that they were not intended to be married.
In her words;
“Before him [my ex-husband] there was somebody else that I married. It didn’t work out. Nobody heard my voice. I didn’t talk about it. That passed quietly.
It lasted eight months. Biggest mistake of my life because the guy was an amazing guy. But he was my friend, my best friend. And religion is what caused that problem that made us marry when we were not supposed to be married. We were supposed to be very good friends because as my friend, he was awesome. But as a married couple, we didn’t work. We just m*ssed it up. And we knew it.
So when we went our separate ways, we were like out of love and respect for each other, let’s just leave it. We don’t talk about it, we just leave it so that at least we can still say, hello, are you okay? How are you?”
