Nigerians have dug up an old interview of comedian, Basketmouth and his wife Elsie, saying they would not consider divorce in their marriage.
In the video taken before they split, Basketmouth said he and his wife had a good marriage and were never going to divorce.
“There is no good marriage that ends up in divorce, so we have a good marriage, so there is nothing; it’s impossible.”
Elsie concurred by saying she likes her husband too much to divorce him. Basketmouth also stated that the first five years of their marriage were better than other marriages he has seen.
The clip, which emerged after Basketmouth announced the end of his 12-year marriage, has generated huge reactions from Nigerians on social media.
“Keep your relationship away from social media. Celebrities and their frequent divorce now make marriage look bad. Your marriage will work and God will bless your home. Don’t let anyone scare you.”
“Can you people rest? A Couple decides to part ways and y’all keep digging. Who enters the marriage institution with Divorce in mind? Very few are transactional. Rest nu ok?.”
“Never imagine divorce. That’s why it’s best to know your partner before getting married. This shit is about 2 people with pride.”
