Speaking during an episode of the BBNaija Reunion show, reality TV star, and single mom, Venita Akpofure revealed snippets of events that led her to the decision to end her marriage which produced two children.
The beautiful mom talked about losing her identity in the course of keeping a home together, a reality that didn’t quite make her happy.
According to the Pepper Dem Gang housemate, the life of being a stay at home mum was not one that she was exactly happy with. She decided to make a change at the point she realised her children could use the restroom independently.
In her words:
“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.
It 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.”
A clip making the rounds online captured the moment an emotionally charged Venita spoke hurtfully about what a fellow housemate, Tacha said about her kids shortly after she was evicted from the house.
The actress, however, made it clear that she is a happily divorced single mother of two children and it brings joy to her heart to be able to stand in her current position.
