In a candid revelation, Stella Damasus, an esteemed Nollywood actress, has shed light on what she considers her “biggest mistake” in life.
The actress recounted a significant incident where she was pressured by a church, where she was part of the choir, into marrying her best friend, who also happened to be the choir director.
Stella expressed that while they had a strong bond as friends, they were not meant to be romantically involved. Despite their compatibility as friends, they struggled to find the same connection as a couple.
This deeply personal revelation came to light during a recent interview with Teju Babyface, a well-known media personality. Stella Damasus’s openness about her past experiences sheds light on the complexities of relationships and the importance of being true to oneself.
In her words, “Before him [my ex-husband] there was somebody else that I married. It didn’t work out. Nobody heard my voice. I didn’t talk about it. That passed quietly.
“It lasted eight months. Biggest mistake of my life because the guy was an amazing guy. But he was my friend, my best friend. And religion is what caused that problem that made us marry when we were not supposed to be married. We were supposed to be very good friends because as my friend, he was awesome. But as a married couple, we didn’t work. We just m*ssed it up. And we knew it.
“So when we went our separate ways, we were like out of love and respect for each other, let’s just leave it. We don’t talk about it, we just leave it so that at least we can still say, hello, are you okay? How are you?”
