Nollywood actress, Ronke Ojo popularly known as Ronke Oshodi Oke stated her opinions with the claims that some celebrities’ failed marriages were caused because of their involvement in Nollywood.
Speaking on the high rate of divorce in Nollywood, the actress told Sunday Scoop that being an actress doesn’t necessarily mean a marriage would fail and it’s more of a general thing than a Nollywood thing.
“It is not because they are actors that their marriages crash,” she said
“There is nobody that is insulated from what’s happening in the society at large. Generally, there are many marriages that don’t last. I have seen someone that was married for just two years and she left the marriage. It is not because one is an actress or an actor that one’s marriage would scatter.
“It is because that’s what is ‘reigning’ for now. It takes true love for anybody to remain in a marriage when the two partners no longer have feelings for each other.”
She also spoke about celebrities who engage in prostitution, she said: “People who do such things would still do it even if they weren’t in the industry. It is because that is who they are. Even if they are in another industry, they would act that way. The president once said that Nigerian youths are lazy. And that’s because everybody, including me, wants free money. Everyone wants to reap from where they didn’t labour.”
