Alhaja Risikat Ejide, the first wife of veteran actor and movie producer, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello recently opened up on how she coped with his lust for women and his infidelity when they got married.
It was recalls that Oga Bello had admitted how much he desired to have just one wife which is Alhaja Risikat Ejide, but along the line, he couldn’t stay faithful.
“I love my wife for many reasons and this is just few of the reasons. I remember one I did, I had to run away after I sent my friend to tell her. It was not an easy thing and this is why I said: “maybe it is my destiny”. I knew I didn’t like what I was doing but I didn’t stop.” Oga Bello had revealed.
Opening up on the 45 years they have spent together in their marital home, her husband’s many children and more, Alhaja Risikat Ejide in a chat with Tunde Kelani TV started with how he ill treated her during the early days.
“It took me many years for me to tell my parents that my husband has other wives.
They couldn’t do anything since I wasn’t complaining to them. I was also working and making good money. I also believe its destiny. So whenever I hear that he impregnated somebody, I don’t ask him, but sometimes he will tell people to beg me. He also formed the habit of running away whenever that happens.
I think he also saw that it was too much. This is why I didn’t have friends. I don’t want friends to tell me things that will make me fight my husband. So the last one he did and ran away; I had to tell his friends to help me look for him that I am not angry. I love my husband so much.
When asked if she ever got angry, she said “Angry, no, but as a human being sometimes it is painful. Sometimes I think about it but love won’t allow me get angry. I just tell myself, I have my own kids. I have boys and girls, what else? So I told myself, I will be patient with him and look after my children. While doing all that, my husband brought his other children for me to train and that was how I trained them.”
