Nollywood actor Bolanle Ninalowo has confirmed claims that he has divorced his wife and mother of his two children.
They were married for 12 years.
The actor disclosed this in an interview with Genevieve Magazine, where he also talked about his journey as an actor and a failed career in music.
Ninalowo, who faced rejection in the past in Nollywood, said his rejection was a blessing in disguise and had prepared him for the challenges ahead.
“I guess time changed and God showed up… I think the time wasn’t right, so God injected that excuse to keep me grinding till the right time. Thank God for grace,” he said.
About his failed career in music, he said: “Yes, I did. I believe that experience, along with others, prepared me for today. With it, I was able to study and understand the dynamics of operating within the Nigerian society; how we think and behave here. I must say, this society isn’t for the weak. To excel, you must be willing to give all. Those days are the best part of my life. The failure and lessons. They challenged me so hard and I chose to break a record with it.”
Ninalowo, who was based in Atlanta before taking up a career in Nollywood, said he ended his relationship with his ex-wife because things didn’t work out between them.
“I am separated from the mother of my kids. I have an 11 year old girl and a nine year old boy from her and they live in Atlanta,” he said.
”We met here in Nigeria, when I visited 12 years ago. I took her, with me, to the States and filed for her (married her on paper) with the hope to someday get married officially, but things took the wrong turn. So, for now I am married to my hustle.”
