”This Is the Only Solution to Domestic Violence” – Nollywood Actor Yemi Blaq

Yemi Olatunji, better known as Yemi Blaq is not known for scandals but for his good acting prowess, which has made him one of the most professional actors in Nollywood.

In a recent interview with the Sun News, the happily married man and father delved into the domestic violence issue that has seemed to destroy many celebrity homes.

According to the actor/filmmaker, the only solution to avoid domestic violent in any relationship is for the victim to take a walk.

”Domestic violence can be identified early. Once you see that a man possesses that trait, just take a walk. Don’t bear it or try to change him, it might get worse. Well, people would ask ‘what if the actresses are the ones instigating the violence?’

Yes, we all know women are prone to such things that could provoke a man to raise his hands on them.

Most times, it’s not easy to swallow but that’s not an excuse at all. A man should always be a man and know where to draw the line. Be responsible and take a walk from that situation too.”

When Blaq was reminded of the widely-held impression that Nigerian actresses are prone to infidelity, the movie star disagreed with such assumption.

”I don’t know a group of people called celebrities. But I know that as an individual, one can be prone to all sorts of things. I think being in front of the camera, be it as a singer or actor exposes you to all sorts of things.

As an actor, I have found myself in some compromising situations, but it’s not necessarily about me being an actor.

Every other person or persons can as well find him or herself in such a dilemma too, the main issue is how you deal with it afterwards; how you handle the situation and walk away.
