Renowned Nollywood actor Richard Mofe-Damijo, also known as RMD, recently disclosed that maintaining fidelity in marriage can be challenging due to the allure of women, whom he likened to the biblical character Delilah.
RMD shared this perspective during a podcast with comedian Teju Babyface, where the topic of faithfulness in marriage was discussed.
The actor emphasized that it is particularly tough for men to resist the seductive nature of women, who he compared to the biblical figures Delilah and Jezebel.
RMD also suggested that becoming a person deeply committed to their faith can help individuals navigate these temptations successfully.
Mofe-Damijo said, “It’s very hard for entertainers to be faithful in marriage because of the line of work that we are in. Every one of us is married, we are the target. Look at how women are, how can you escape it? Women are like Delilah, they are like Jezebel, they prepare… The only way the enemy can perpetrate their real intention is to constantly aim at the image of God or the symbol of authority in any home. Then shut it down. It’s like shooting a General on the battlefield. You drop him and then the battalion scatter. Their mission is to take down the head of the family.
“So, it’s very difficult [to be faithful]. You have to get to the point where your wife understands what she is up against as well. Because if your wife is not up to speed on what she is up against, then you would be left open.”
RMD is married to television personality Jumobi Adegbesan. The couple got married after he lost his first wife, talk show host May Ellen ‘MEE’ Mofe-Damijo in 1996.
