Nigerian musician and actress, Omawumi, has said that she would not leave her husband even if he cheated on her.
The 37-year-old said this in episode of actress, Mercy Johnson’s, cook show, Mercy’s Menu.
Answering a hypothetical question of if she would leave if she caught her husband cheating, she said:
“No, never. I can’t leave because of that one error. It’s not a good way to do these things but you know, I call my husband my partner, it’s a partnership, na two of us na hin dey inside (we are both in the relationship together). So, what you would not want me to do to you, don’t do it to me.
“It’s not feminism, it’s very simple mathematics. I didn’t say it’s equal partnership because my husband is the head of my home and it’s not feminism but when you go and cheat, and you say it’s by mistake, did you fall inside by mistake? But he needs to explain to me, do you want to do it again?
Those are the questions we would discuss and then he will pay a penalty under punishment like say you aren’t visiting home front again because you have gone to visit outside. It has never happened to me before, I and my husband are not saints but we are just blessed and you don’t know a man to the end,” she said.
She also said she had learnt to communicate with her husband as they grew together.
In January, Omawumi had celebrated the first anniversary of her traditional wedding.
Omawumi and Mr Yusuf have been legally married since 2015 but only had their traditional ceremony in Warri, Delta State, in 2018.
The couple has two children.
