Nollywood actor, Stan Nze has opened up on how he came to a conclusion to marry after realizing a lot of failed unions in the industry.
Nigerian actor Stan in an interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu spoke about his marriage with his 42-year-old wife Blessing Obasi last year September when other industry players were facing serious turmoil in their marriages.
According to the actor, he was compelled to go off social media to have a rethink about his decision to marry and his readiness.
“I’ve always wanted my family to be private. My marriage was to be under wraps until my honeymoon but my wife insisted we post a photo so we control any coming narrative. We’d been together for 3 and a half years,” he said.
“I want my marriage to work. A week before my marriage, I left social media. There was a lot of news on Instagram. Partners were fighting each other. I was literally palpitating, asking myself if I was ready for marriage.
“These were people I felt they were really in love, some even having dated for seven years. It was important that I married someone in the entertainment industry, whether radio, film, or movies. It’s a delicate industry.
“You need someone that really understands when you’re out late. When she’s out late, I understand and it’s not an issue. It’s not a struggle to back by 1 am and have a partner who is wondering if there’s lipstick [stain] on you.”
