Nollywood actress, Damilola Adegbite has shared her challenges with being a famous star and how she has dealt with the demise of her Chris Attoh’s wife, Jennifer Betty.
When she was asked if she had contacted her ex since the death of his wife, she said, “Why not? He’s my son’s father, so I just had to. I don’t have a choice. I believe that whatever happened between us was destined to be that way.”
“On this particular issue, someone’s life was involved, so, its very sensitive. No matter what happened between us, it is not good to wish someone death. Chris was part of my life, so why won’t I reach out to him?”,
On if she can find love again, “Let that love wait (Laughs). Life at 34, it is so sweet. As I get older, I’m becoming fresher and aging backwards.I pity anybody that wants to pay my dowry and marry me now. You would have to sweat it out. But surly enjoy it all.”
On the problems that come with being a public figure, “Sometime ago, I googled myself and the outcome wasn’t so pleasant. I wasn’t able to read what popped up. The first post made me lose interest in reading further. I quickly moved away from there. Again, I stopped granting press interviews because I’m tired of journalists misquoting me to gain cheap attention or to be rewarded in their respective offices,”
On several advices from her fans, “These people won’t let me rest. I was advised to settle down, I tired it, I didn’t work out. I had thought that after my failed marriage people would let me be. But I goofed. They are still on this marriage case. Everyone should learn to mind their business, there are other things going on around the world at the moment.”
