Nigerian singer, Omawumi recently had a heart-to-heart talk with popular actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie on marriage, career, their fears and motherhood.
The singer made an appearance during episode 4 of ‘Mercy’s Menu’ kitchen talk show where she prepared a local dish called Ukodo.
The host, Johnson-Okojie asked the musician whether she would prefer if her in-laws tell her about her cheating spouse or educate her partner.
“They have to educate him about cheating, because if they tell me, I will kill him.”
The popular actress, who is happily married and a mother of three, didn’t hesitate to support her opinion but stated that if she catches her husband in the act, she would rather talk about it with him and get the woman out of their lives to which the singer replied;
“No, never (there’s any possibility of leaving my house because of the one cheating error). 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,”.
The ‘Megbele’ crooner stressed that cheating is not done intentionally.
In her words,
“It’s not that I deliberately go out to be mean but you will not want me to cheat on you, so why would you cheat on me and are you going to cheat on me again? Because if you cheat on me again, you can be sure that I will cheat on you”.
