Nigerian Actress Funke Akindele has said that she does not consider her ex-husband’s divorce after two unsuccessful marriages to be a failure.
She revealed this when making an appearance as a guest on Zoombia FM in Lagos. She emphasized that she views marriage as something she takes “as it comes,” and that her profession and mental health come first. In addition, she noted that divorce is not considered a failure for her.
She went on to say that her mother had taught her that failing is a necessary part of the learning process and that taking care of her siblings and children comes first in her life.
“If you ask me now can you tell me one failure, I don’t see it as a failure. My personal life – marriage, I just take it as it comes. My mental health is very important. My career is very important, darling.
“I have to make an impact. I have to empower a lot of people. I have to inspire young people out there. I have to stay strong for my children and my siblings. Why am I living? I have a purpose, so my head is up. Yes, I cry, yes I break down, but after I cry, I just look in the mirror and say, ‘keep moving,’” she said.
