Why My Wife Unfollows Me On Social Media, Refuses To Watch My Films – Actor Deyemi Okanlawon

Nollywood actor Deyemi Okanlawon has shared insights into how his wife, Damilola Okanlawon, handles his celebrity status.

In a recent interview, Deyemi disclosed that intentionally, his wife refrains from following him on social media and abstains from watching any of his movies.

He explained that she chooses not to delve into the intricacies of his work, aiming to safeguard their marriage and uphold a sense of normalcy.

Acknowledging the challenges his wife faces, the actor expressed his commitment to checking in on her well-being regularly, understanding the importance of preserving their personal environment.

He said, “There was a time I took it for granted that my wife understood the nature of my job, until I started noticing a few things.

“She was a bit withdrawn, things were changing, and then I tried to have the conversation but even she didn’t realize that she was reacting.

“So it took a while of consistently trying to say what’s going on because you’re changing and there’s a difference, before she now finally even looked at it by herself and realized okay, there’s a problem, we need to sit down and we need to talk. And we had the conversation.

“People look at her and say oh she’s quiet, she’s reserved, she can handle it. She can’t handle it. We had to handle it together.

“So right now my wife does not follow me on Instagram, by her choice. She said she does not want to see.

“When my films started showing when I started out on things like DSTV and local channels, we decided that okay we’re no longer watching local channels, let us go and look for international channels.

“Now I’m inside international channels, we’re looking at ourselves and we’re playing card games in the house.

“You have to do everything you can to protect and preserve your environment. I don’t take it for granted that it’s not easy for her, so I still have to check in once in a while.”
