Breaking : I do not regret sacrificing my husband, kids for my career - Shaffy Bello discusses her marriage breakup.

Shaffy Bello, an actress, has spoken out for the first time about her failed marriage, which she claims she sacrificed for her successful career in Nollywood today.

Shaffy Bello, 50, revealed this in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.

Shedding light on how she left her husband and kids behind in America over 10 years in search of greener pastures for herself in Nigeria, Shaffy Bello in the interview said “I came back to Nigeria to spread my wings, I felt like I was pregnant and couldn’t have a child…like my wings were sort of closed in, like i was boxed in.

I needed more, my soul needed more, I was yearning for more. I didn’t know the price that will come with it but I had to make the sacrifice…I paid the price of not having a connection with my children then. My daughter was 13, my son was 11…I was an hands on mother before I left them. At a point I even quit my job to raise my kids…I sacrificed a lot for them to be nurtured…only to now leave them in their early teenage years with their father…and then again, their dad is out there making a living and i am here in Nigeria making a living….so they missed the joint parental touch but that is about that”

Speaking further Shaffy Bello said “I left my husband, because he allowed me….….we divorced 5 years ago when I was 45 and that was a huge sacrifice, he is a good man and father to the children….the distance affected us, long distance relationship was difficult…but I knew I wanted this, if I go back, it will be too much of a sacrifice, I wouldn’t be myself and at some point i will resent him so I had to focus on what I wanted.”

When asked how she handle being judged over the decision, Shaffy Bello responded saying “I judged myself…but I thank God he did it for me this way, because it is better for me. I built my marriage, we had kids, I nurtured them and then I progressed for my career. I suffered the judgement for so long of choosing career over family but I didn’t tell anyone.

You see, I don’t care much what people say about me, but I care more about my children and close knit family…when it happened I didn’t have to explain much to my family, my pastor, they saw me, they saw the light in my eyes…and agreed”

On how she relates with her children today, Shaffy Bello gushed saying “My children come here often on vacation. One day my daughter said to me, I am glad you made the decision you made, it has taught me as a woman to be a goal getter and go for what you want….I was happy when she said that”

Admonishing young women in their 20s and 30s trying to strike balance between their home, marriage and career, Shaffy Bello said “As a woman, there is time for everything…..marriage, children….and there is more to being a mum and wife….If your children are still young especially when they are babies, you need to nurture them, give them a good foundation because they didn’t ask to come to world but you brought them…..so give them that nurturing and then face career and self after they are groomed. Some have it all but don’t you dare forget your dreams and yourself in process.”

When asked if she will do marriage, Shaffy Bello concluded saying “Yes, i will. I am a one Man woman….I love marriage…..and marriage at this age for me is gonna be sweet, no babies to nurture …just enjoyment, take me travelling, vacation, and if you are gonna marry, you have to double up…and if it doesn’t happen, Shaffy is alright.”

Mercy Aigbe new husband’s ex wife was aware he was taking a new wife 

According to latest sources, Funsho, Mercy Aigbe new husband’s ex-wife, was aware that he was marrying a new woman.

According to Angela Tolulade, a woman from the United States of America who claimed to be a family friend of the Adeotis, Adekaz and Juwon were not on speaking terms until Aigbe entered the picture.

She also claimed that Funsho was informed about Adekaz’s marriage to Mercy Aigbe and that all legal procedures were followed.
“Adekaz and Funsho married in the United States 20 years ago,” she stated. Adekaz, a registered mortgage broker, moved to Nigeria to start a movie production company.

“He came to Nigeria with Funsho, who later went back to the US, saying she did not want to stay in Nigeria. The marriage was on until Funsho refused to come over and her husband kept pushing for her to be around.

It is important to note that this matter had dragged on for almost two years. He (Adekaz) told her (Funsho) point blank that he would marry another wife if she did not return as agreed.”
Tolulade also insisted that Adekaz never shirked his responsibility to their three children. She said, “Till date, Adekaz still carries out his duties as a father. He pays the school fees of the children and foots their other bills. Funsho cannot say he neglected her because she was the one adamant about not returning to Nigeria.”

Speaking further, the family friend stated that despite pressure from her husband, Funsho refused to relocate to Nigeria.

She added, “It is on record that Funsho bluntly told Adekaz that she would not return to Nigeria because she can’t live in Nigeria anymore. She told him that if he chooses to marry another wife in Nigeria, he can go ahead but once he does that, it would be over between them.
“She gave her husband an ultimatum to choose between coming back to the US or staying back in Nigeria, marry another wife and everyone would go their separate ways.

Funsho cannot deny not knowing that her husband was taking another wife as she was fully informed.
“If Funsho wanted her marriage to work, she would have returned many years ago. But she stayed put in Minnesota. Their first child is in a private university in the US, and Adekaz pays her fees. Their other kids are also not abandoned. Meanwhile, Adekaz is a Muslim and he has the right to marry more than one wife.”
