Nollywood actress Shaffy Bello has revealed why she quit her 25-year marriage. She said she walked out of her marriage because it was a long-distance union as her estranged husband, Mr. Akinrimisi, was based in the United States. The entertainer disclosed this in a chat with popular media personality Chude Jideonwo. She said the long-distance didn’t help her marriage, so she settled for divorce.
The mother of two said:
“He [my ex-husband] was an excellent father to his children. But I got to a place where I wanted more. And I would always travel back and forth. But I knew at a point that if I really like this, it came with a sacrifice.
“It wasn’t a sacrifice of marriage, but then he being there [USA] and the distance didn’t help.”
She said it was difficult for her to cope with the situation, so she chose divorce.
