For BBNaija’s Venita Akpofure, being a divorced mother to her kids has its perks, something she is happy about.
The reality star cum actress recently opened up about her personal life, saying she doesn’t regret her divorce as being a stay-at-home mum left her unhappy.
Venita disclosed that when she got married and had a baby, she lost her identity in the name of keeping her home and trying to hold everything together.
She said that life as a married woman taking care of her kids didn’t make her happy, and I got to a point where the children started going to the toilet on their own.
When you become a new mum, it is very easy to lose your identity in the name of trying to build her home and keep it together. I really did a full 360, I wasn’t working in front of the lens. I was really domesticated. The switch was quite extreme and I was in that space for a long time between 5 to 7 years or so. It wasn’t making me happy. it wasn’t fulfilling for me it wasn’t healthy for me.”
I got to a point where my kids were going to the toilet on their own and I’m like, I need to find something to do. What happened to me? I needed to find myself apart from all other bunch of things that might make you want to file for divorce. It’s not an easy decision to make to decide that this is not good for you but it takes a very strong mind to do that so I was very determined and I don’t regret it at all.”
