Veteran Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo has said that it’s hard for men, especially those in his line of work, to be faithful in marriage.
The actor said this during a recent interview with Nigerian comedian Olateju Oyelakin, popularly called Teju Babyface.
According to him, actors who are married are the target of some women with bad intentions, and it’s hard to escape the temptation.
Mofe-Damijo compared those women to the biblical Jezebel and Delilah. He said a man has to get to a point where his wife understands what she is up against.
“It’s very hard for us to be faithful in marriage because of the line of work that we are in. Every one of us that is married, we are the target. Look at how women are, how can you escape it?
“Women are like Delilah, they are like Jezebel, they prepare… The only way the enemy can perpetrate their real intention is to constantly aim at the image of God or the symbol of authority in any home. Then shut it down. It’s like shooting a General on the battlefield. You drop him, and then the battalion scatter. Their mission is to take down the head of the family.
“So, it’s very difficult [to be faithful]. You have to get to the point where your wife understands what she is up against as well. Because if your wife is not up to speed on what she is up against, then you would be left open,” he said.
