Why my wife refuses to watch my films – Deyemi Okanlawon

Deyemi Okanlawon Biography, Age, Wife, Children, Net Worth, And Career

Nigerian actor, Deyemi Okanlawon, opened up about his journey to fame and how he manages his wife, Damilola, who struggles with his celebrity status.

Okanlawon also disclosed that his wife does not follow him on social media or watch his movies.

When it comes to handling his wife’s difficulty in handling his life in the public eye as a popular actor, Okanlawon shared his approach.

He said;

“There was a time I took it for granted that my wife understood the nature of my job, until I started noticing a few things. She was a bit withdrawn, things were changing, and then I tried to have the conversation but even she didn’t realize that she was reacting.

So it took a while of consistently trying to say what’s going on because you’re changing and there’s a difference, before she now finally even looked at it by herself and realized okay, there’s a problem, we need to sit down and we need to talk. And we had the conversation.

People look at her and say oh she’s quiet, she’s reserved, she can handle it. She can’t handle it. We had to handle it together.

So right now my wife does not follow me on Instagram, by her choice. She said she does not want to see.

When my films started showing when I started out on things like DSTV and local channels, we decided that okay we’re no longer watching local channels, let us go and look for international channels. Now I’m inside international channels, we’re looking at ourselves and we’re playing card games in the house.

You have to do everything you can to protect and preserve your environment. I don’t take it for granted that it’s not easy for her, so I still have to check in once in a while.”
