Actress Speaks On Failed Marriage And Political Marriage

"I rushed into my first marriage because everybody was getting married and I also wanted to get married" - Foluke Daramola

Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola in a recent interview with YES Magazine, spoke on her political plans, failed marriage and her new marriage.

Read Excerpts

On Broken Marriage

"First and foremost, I rushed into my first marriage because everybody was getting married and I also wanted to get married. So I really did not know who I was getting married to the first time. That was the issue. The bane was that I was in a hurry to get married and because I was in a hurry to get married.

I did not really study the person I got married to. But just because I had kids in that marriage, I don't regret it because for everything that happens to us in life, it has been orchestrated by God. So, the only thing that I think was the bane of the relationship was that I was immature and I jumped into the marriage and never took my time" she said

On Political Intentions

"Yes I have political intentions but it is just that I don't know where I fit in right now. It is a very good one because if we all don't do it, who will do it? We have been complaining about our leaders, so we should be able to make a difference. A lot of artiste that are going into politics now are well read and enlightened.

They are educated and they can make the change as well. So I think there should even be more people going into it. At the end of the day, as a celebrity, if they are not doing what they are supposed to do, people would now say you are supposed to be a pacesetter and you are now making mockery of the whole thing"

On New Marriage

"One of the things that attracted me to Kayode Salako  in the first instance is the fact that he loves children. He has never segregated for one day segregated against my children to make them feel he doesn't love them. Let me give you a scenario.

I went for an open day in my children's school just after we got married and my children told me there that they didn't want their surname anymore, that they want to bear Kayode Salako and when their teachers refused their request, they would just write their names(Ire, Ibukun) and won't write their surname (Sobowale) and it was because of the way he was treating them that they felt loved"
