Nigerian singer and songwriter, Omawumi Megbele popularly known by her stage name, Omawumi, opened up to Mercy Johnson-Okojie on why she won’t leave her husband because of a cheating error during episode 4 of ‘Mercy’s Menu’ kitchen talk show.
When she was asked by the host, Mercy Johnson-Okojie on what she will do if she catches her husband cheating:
“No, never (there’s any possibility of leaving my house because of the one cheating error). I can’t leave because of that one error. It’s not a good way to do these things but you know, I call my husband my partner, it’s a partnership, na two of us na hin dey inside (we are both in the relationship together). So, what you would not want me to do to you, don’t do it to me. It’s not feminism, it’s very simple mathematics. I didn’t say it’s equal partnership because my husband is the head of my home and it’s not feminism but when you go and cheat, and you say it’s by mistake, did you fall inside by mistake? But he needs to explain to me, do you want to do it again? Those are the questions we would discuss and then he will pay a penalty under punishment like say you aren’t visiting home front again because you have gone to visit outside. It has never happened to me before, I and my husband are not saints but we are just blessed and you don’t know a man to the end,” she said.
The music star further stated about cheating “It’s not that I deliberately go out to be mean but you will not want me to cheat on you, so why would you cheat on me and are you going to cheat on me again? Because if you cheat on me again, you can be sure that I will cheat on you”.
It is worthy to note that Omawumi, who has been married for four years, also revealed to Mercy Johnson Okojie that she had issues with communicating with her husband in the past and she has since then learned how to overcome it.
