BN Saturday Celebrity Interview: Her Joy, Her Pain, Her Story – Nollywood Actress Stella Damasus reveals ALL exclusively to BN

Stella Damasus has over the years, been a prominent name in the Nigerian movie industry. An actress and a singer, she started her career in acting and music as a teenager. Now aged 34, she has had about 20 years experience in professional acting and singing. She has over 50 movies to her credit, has won several awards and was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the African Movie Academy Awards in 2009. Aside from her music and acting carer, Stella has a deep passion for philanthropy work and is affiliated to several charity organisations. Stella is a mother of 2 and was tragically widowed in December 2004 when her late husband, Jaiye Aboderin died. She got married a couple of years after but sadly, the marriage ended shortly after. In this revealing interview with Bellanaija’s Adeola Adeyemo, Stella speaks about her passions, the several controversies and media reports surrounding her late husband’s death, second marriage and more.

Since her relocation to Abuja, Stella has been a bit difficult to reach for most of us based in Lagos. Luckily, over the past weekend, she came to Lagos to host a show, speak at an event and receive an ambassadorial appointment. Coincidentally, she was mourning the passing of a colleague in the movie industry and remembering the death of her late husband at that period. This could have dampened her spirits but she did an excellent job of not letting it getting in the way and opened up in one of her most revealing interviews ever.

Hi Stella. Let me first extend my condolences on the death of veteran actor, Enebeli Enebuwa. I understand you led other people in the industry to get help for him while he was ill.
I’m very angry because the people in my industry are hypocrites. That man was ill for a long time in Lagos and they turned it into a fanfare. People would go and visit him and take pictures with him, post it on Twitter, on Facebook, on their blogs; they used it to make people feel that they are philanthropists but nobody lifted a finger to take care of him or help his family. They are more interested in politics; who would be President, how they can visit dignitaries who would dash them money. Nobody cares about the elderly people in the industry. We know how to celebrate people when they die, but when they are alive what do we do for them, especially the sick ones? The Delta state government eventually sponsored him to India. I’m just very pained.

I’m sorry to hear that. But this is not the first time you’ve been associated with a charitable cause. You are affiliated to a couple of charities. Tell me about these projects.
You probably wouldn’t know a lot of things that I do because I’m not one to blow a trumpet for the whole world to hear. But let me just give you a few. I am an ambassador for Women For Africa. We are trying to inspire African women who have been relegated to the background. I’ve been working with Lamboginny Say No To Crime project to do things for the prisoners. I’m also an ambassador for Project Alert. Another NGO I have is ADIVA where I mentor young girls. In Cameroon, I’m affiliated with Splash Network, we deal with cancer. Every year, we go to Cameroon with relief and medical materials like syringes and drips for the cancer patients. I am also affiliated to SOS Children’s Village and I am in talks with NAPTIP. I was recently appointed an ambassador for the NDLEA. And there is my Stella Damasus Art Foundation. All together, we’ve trained 40 people in drama and music and they are doing very well. It’s totally free.

That’s quite a long list, well done! What is the purpose behind all the charity work you do? What drives you?
That is my life, that is what I’ve been called to do. When you think about purpose, it’s not just about being a star. God gave everyone something special, put you in a particular place so that you can influence something positive. I have a talent for a reason and against all odds, against everything that I have faced, I’m passionate about helping people and doing philanthropy work. I’m just very happy that my wealth is in people, not money. When I try to impact people’s lives positively, that makes me happy.

Acting & Music
You haven’t been acting much lately. In the past few years, we’ve seen less of you on the screens. Why is that?
The truth is I intentionally slowed down. I was in a system where I knew a lot of crap was going on and instead of me to sit there and complain, I had to come out of it a bit. I just decided to be careful with the kind of roles I played. Every film, they want me to cry, they want me to be the good girl or the victim. I got tired of answering the question “Oh Stella, why do you like to cry in movies?”. I decided to look for something challenging and so if I get a script and the character is different and challenging, then I would do. Now, I am trying to see how I can make my own movies.

I notice you’ve been doing more music lately. You released a single some weeks ago that got mostly good feedback. Tell me about your music career.
A lot of people still don’t know my background. They don’t know that I was a singer before I started acting. When I came to Lagos, my first job was as a singer. It was when I escorted somebody and I met people doing auditions for a movie that I got into acting. Before then, I was working in Klink Studios. I was a singer in the studio doing jingles but I was also singing at a place called Jazzville in Yaba. And then I joined a band and we started singing for shows. I was not a recording artiste that had an album but if I recall when I started singing in a band, it’s been about 20 years now.

I read somewhere that music brought you and your late husband together…
Yes, I was in a band called Synergy with my late husband. We were singing everywhere together. We had a single that we did a video for, Love Song. Before he died, we were in the process of making our album. We had done about six songs but he wanted me to release my solo album first but I knew I wasn’t ready. So I encouraged him to go ahead with his. He had finished his album and was getting ready to start shooting videos before he died.

Are you trying to finish that album now?
No, this is a new project. It is not a commercial album, I must say that. The kind of people that would like it are those who love real music, not club hits. I will have uptempo music that you can dance to, but it would be real music that you can enjoy.

How far have you gone with the album and which artistes are you collaborating with?
I’ve recorded quite a few songs. I did one with Lamboginny called Get Up. I am going to do another one with Micheal Edward. I’m thinking of doing one with 2Face and I’m hoping by God’s grace I can get M.I to do a song with me. My biggest dream would be to do a song with Rita Marley. I met her in Ghana and we got talking and she showed me old pictures of her late husband. We bonded and we are trying to do a song to honour and celebrate both our husbands.

Remembering Jaiye
Stella, I say this with my deepest sympathy. It’s been eight years since the passing of your late husband and coincidentally, we are in the month of December. You wrote an article some days ago called “Jaiye On My Mind” where you celebrated the life he lived. In the month of the anniversary of his death, what thoughts are running through your mind?
Sometimes, I still think I’m dreaming. Sometimes, I still think that he went on a very long trip and he’s coming back. That is the honest truth. I’ve moved on, my children are doing well but you can never finish mourning. You can never forget. It is easier to handle, the scars are easier to deal with but it never goes away.

What do you remember him for?
I remember him a lot but the good thing about it is that, he was such a great person that every time I remember him, it’s a good thing that would make me smile. I’m glad that my thoughts of him are not sad. Every minute I remember, I celebrate him and I celebrate his wonderful children because my children are too good to be true.

Has time healed your wounds?
Time can let you handle it, not really heal. After a while, you get better and stronger. Maybe after 15 to 20 years, I might get to where there is healing, I don’t know. This is somebody that I lived with and shared my life with. Somebody that if anything happened, the first thing I would do is call him. I can’t deceive myself saying I am totally healed.

How did the news of his death come to you?
I got a call from somebody that never calls me, one of his Lebanese friends. He told me that I had to come to the hospital that Jaiye had fainted. He said the Doctor probably needs me to bring some clothes. I thought why couldn’t they revive somebody that has fainted, why do they need me to bring clothes? When I got there, I saw a massive crowd and I wondered what they were doing there. Then I started looking at their faces and noticed that I recognized them. That day, Jaiye went to play basketball and some of them were still in their jerseys. I was with a lady that used to live with us. Kate Henshaw came downstairs and whispered something into her ears and she just flipped and ran, she almost ran under a car. At that point, I couldn’t even think that he was dead. It was like No, my Jaiye cannot be dead. He is just 33 and I’m 26. Then I got to the doctor and I asked to see him. Some of his friends were in the doctor’s office. I looked around me and saw grown men crying and shaking. He told me to sit down, looked straight at me and said “I’m sorry, your husband is dead”. I don’t remember whether I grabbed him or I hit him. I was shouting, saying he should take me to see my husband. I refused to believe him so they made sure that I saw his corpse so that I would know. He looked like someone that was sleeping.

It must have been a very difficult period for you, Stella. There were several reports in the media saying different things about your mental state at the time and challenges you faced from relatives.
If he was sick over a period of time, it would have been easier to deal with. But he went to play basketball and just slumped. We planned to take our friends out later that night and we even had a show to perform at the next day which we had already been paid for. It was in the media that I had gone mad. One or two people saw me talking to myself but they didn’t know why I was talking to myself. I didn’t know who to trust. I went through a lot. It is when you are at your lowest point that you find that people want to take advantage of you. Things that you would not expect people to do, if I open my mouth and talk, you would be shocked. But out of respect and the way I was brought up, I just let it go.

A lot of young people have passed on in similar ways while playing sport. What did the results of his post mortem say about the cause of his death and do you have any advice for young people?
This is one of the reasons I said if I open my mouth and talk, you would be shocked. The post mortem matter is one of the reasons so I’ve decided to keep quiet on that. In our society, we don’t have a culture of checking up on our health especially when there is nothing obviously wrong. When we are physically OK, we think everything is OK. A lot of people have been carrying diseases that are dormant but something can trigger it and they might not even know. The younger you are, the more check-ups you should do. We have this mentality that if you haven’t reached 40, you shouldn’t take your health seriously.

Are you saying there was no post mortem examination carried out?
I don’t know… I don’t know.

Moving On
There were conflicting reports about your second marriage and divorce. What really happened?
Yes I got married and the marriage is over, we got divorced. It was due to irreconcilable differences. I don’t like talking about my ex-husband because he is a very private person and a very responsible man. We are two adults that entered into something and those same two adults saw that it wasn’t working and we decided to quietly leave it.

How long were you married?
I really would not want to go into details.

After your divorce, there were some rumours about you being in a relationship with Mofe Duncan.
Mofe Duncan is one of the closest people to me in the world. He was there for me in my time of need. He’s single abi? He’s very handsome abi? If they say I was dating him, all well and good. For me, people have to open their eyes and understand that there are too many important things to worry about rather than who is dating who. We are looking at people who their wives would fall ill as leaders and they are proud to say their wives are getting better outside of the country. A governor would have an accident and they would immediately fly him out. What about people who can’t afford to fly abroad, should they die here? We have things like that to worry about but the world wants to know who Stella is dating.

I’m only asking these questions to correct any false rumours being spread.
The truth of the matter is I really don’t care what people think about my private life. If they insist or believe there is somebody, they should go ahead and believe that.

This ring on your finger looks like an engagement ring, Stella. Am I correct and does this mean something?
Well, if it looks like it then it is. It does abi? Then it is. For me to boldly wear this, I know what it would cause so I’m saying to them, talk. Yes I’m wearing an engagement ring so its left for you to decide whether it’s real, or I’m wearing it for fashion, or I’m just looking for trouble.

On a final and brighter note, tell me about your children. How are they doing?
My kids are wonderful, they are growing up nicely. I have a teenage daughter who is 13 and the second one is 10. I’m very happy that God has helped me because its God that helps you train children in the way that you want them to grow. Even if I’m not home, my children still do morning devotion on their own. Because of the experiences we’ve had together, we’ve become best friends. I don’t let them see me as Mummy, I tell them to see me as their friend who would correct them with love. They are a blessing to me and they are so mature. They had to grow up quickly because of what they went through. They’ve made life easier for me.


It was great chatting with Stella and from BellaNaija.com, we wish her the very best!

  • The Truth December 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Why does she sound childish in some of her replies? Oh well like she said, it’s her life.

  • Keepingitreal December 15, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    ” I was not a recording artiste that had an album but if I recall when I started singing in a band, it’s been about 20 years now” and you are 34 years, so you started singing at 14 with your late husband and the band? how real is that?

    • Dlapikin December 15, 2012 at 5:39 pm

      She did not say she started singing with her late husband at 14, she said the first time she sang with a band she was 14! Which to me seems very probable. Is there an age to be in a band?

    • mimi December 15, 2012 at 6:22 pm

      my dear you took the words out of my mouth my mind was busy adding up too!

    • bunsky December 15, 2012 at 6:56 pm

      Bcos u didnt join a band at 14 (thats if u evn got the talent) doesnt mean someone else cant.. It’s not an impossible feat. Bros/sista, practice wat u preach. Abeg, keep it real ….

    • LoveChild December 15, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      Abi oooooo lol

    • Teebaby December 15, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      You actually took those words out of my mouth

  • Lola December 15, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    What is ” exclusive” about this interview?? She didn’t tell us anything we don’t know. Nothing new apart from the charity work. It’s a very boring and insightful interview. Great pictures anyway

  • Ope Akinlotan December 15, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Good woman growing stronger. May God continue to keep u n d children n of course ur carrier.
    One advice Stella is that u shuld be careful with your relationship with men, am nt saying u shuldnt fall in love bt do it wisely pls. i pray God grants u wisdom on this. go girl!!!!!

  • jyde December 15, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    A true star with humility and focus.
    Stella knows what role models owe to those who adore and helped make them household names.
    Its hard work being real.
    Stay blessed stella,we pray others will follow your example.

    • NELLIEDIVA December 17, 2012 at 5:11 pm

      which example? u berra take ur time

  • brittany December 15, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    just answer question and she is getting defensive!!!

    • Laide December 15, 2012 at 3:40 pm

      Must she answer?….like seriously is it every question pple ask u about ur private life you answer?….pls let he be

    • jane December 15, 2012 at 6:07 pm

      does she owe you the information?..i dont even know why the interviewer did not get the hint that she didnt want to talk about it and just move on.

  • nanz December 15, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    she has such a stunning voice !! i love her shes a great person

  • Ugbaby December 15, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!! Stella.. a very beautiful and intelligent woman who has very intelligent and very smart ways of answering but yet avoiding the questions put to her! It’s left for the wise to denote what really the true answers are, when it comes to this woman. Going from all she has said, she clearly had or still have issues with some of the people in our movie industry, Nollywood. She obviously didn’t want to call names but it shows that there are issues somewhere with some people. Secondly, she clearly dated this Duncan guy!!!! Believe it or not, but heyyyyyyy, like she SMARTLY and rightly said, there are more important things to talk about than who Stella is dating! Lol. Thirdly, she clearly had a beautiful relationship with the deceased hubby. And also she’s a great mother. In all I think she’s a beautiful string woman, who believes in what she stands for and is not afraid to try. She clearly believes in love, hence her so many attempts on ‘love’ and ‘relationships’. Good.

  • dee dee December 15, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    aww.. i love stella!! I remember the song with her husband, went something like this “when i show you how i feel and i show you how it is…and our love is really strong and ill love you all night long, will you sing back to me that love song..” The video was just beautiful..
    wish her all the best. she does have a good heart :)

  • gooby December 15, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    she’s really a talker

  • irregadeless December 15, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the answer..I luv her voice thou,but pls stay away from getting married again,u have lovely career,u have sweet kids,u have been married before,why bother really? Some of us have not even been married once.Lol

    • tatafo! December 15, 2012 at 7:15 pm

      you are an enemy of progress. so because you have not married Stella should not marry? did they born you and her together? are your destinies tied together?

      • laide December 15, 2012 at 10:50 pm

        lmao oo…I wonder!

    • word December 15, 2012 at 10:48 pm

      i think she should re marry because sometimes a woman need a companion to always support her even though she has God. her children need a fatherly figure.

  • nich December 15, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    divorce…divorce in nollywood

  • Bode December 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Your kids should see you ad mummy and you can still be their friend. Kids are meant to have parents and not only friends. This is why most Caucasian kids are full of mid- behaviors !

  • what December 15, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    LOVE LOVE THIS WOMAN!!..used to adore her/my role model while really young, her and RMD :)……..well her answers maybe a bit agressive but its her life…..ride on Miss

  • Dlapikin December 15, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    very gracious!

  • Alima December 15, 2012 at 5:38 pm

    I feel so sorry for her as far as her late husband. I can tell that was her true love. Must be hard to replace him. And yes alot of people in the industry are hipocrites. I saw Susan Peters take pictures with Enebili before he died. On his hospital bed. I thought that was pretty creepy

    • Purpleicious Babe December 16, 2012 at 12:52 am

      U took the words right out of my mouth re: her husband…

      I cant help but think she would do anything if its possible to allow Jaiye to be here. I believe her happiest moments are the times she spent with him.. I cant imagine what it felt and how she had to pick herself up and FACE REALITY…. IT must have been a painful experience that never goes away and will never go (it not a curse). Its life.

      I pray the Lord will continue to be her strength and I am so happy she is blessed with children to celebrate her love with if anything..

      Babes, JAIYE is proud of you and he believes in you. Life is interesting and dynamic but am sure he was happy and fulfilled during the times you two spent together..

      Keep up the good work..xxxx

    I must say, she has a good heart.
    Go gurl n be a Blessing to d world…

  • cindy December 15, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    Love her so much…..

  • mimi December 15, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    We can safely assume she is between 36 and 38 unless she came to Lagos at the age of 14 and started singing in a band at that same age coz that is the only way she can be 34 and have been singing for 20 years…and her answers come across as being defensive

  • Msunderstood December 15, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    Stella must get married again o, she loves love n men.
    I once heard abt how her late husband used to spoil her silly n turn deaf ears to all d rumours abt her. She also once said she knows it will be difficult to find someone like him.

  • NAtalkamoh December 15, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Fine strong woman

  • ANSWER TO AGE QUESTIONS READ THIS PARAGRAPH AGAIN!!!! December 15, 2012 at 7:51 pm

    BN INTERVIEWER: “I notice you’ve been doing more music lately. You released a single some weeks ago that got mostly good feedback. Tell me about your music career.”
    STELLA.”A lot of people still don’t know my background. They don’t know that I was a singer before I started acting. When I came to Lagos, my first job was as a singer. It was when I escorted somebody and I met people doing auditions for a movie that I got into acting. Before then, I was working in Klink Studios. I was a singer in the studio doing jingles but I was also singing at a place called Jazzville in Yaba. And then I joined a band and we started singing for shows. I was not a recording artiste that had an album but if I recall when I started singing in a band, it’s been about 20 years now.”

    Have you reread this paragraph when she came to lagos her first job was as a singer before that she worked at Klinx studios so at the age of 14 Stella was singing jingles at Klinx studios and also in a place called Jazzville at Yaba i wonder where she got the time to go to school with all these activities as a 14 year old over to you BNers this reminds me of when Sinitta (x-factor) lied about her age forgetting that it meant that she was 13 when she and Simon Cowell started dating and he was like 24 or above at the time the media had a field day with that and unearthed her birth certificate issued in Seattle with her real age which was five years older than she claimed. I am not saying Stella is lying about her age i am only asking you to reread that paragraph BN readers.

  • Roomandparlor December 15, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    Wow. She is a stunning performer. Love her voice!!!!!

  • dee one December 15, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    She said d first time she sang in a band…she did not mention that it was d same time she came to Lagos…read well before U̶̲̥̅̊ make conclusions

    • ANSWER TO AGE QUESTIONS READ THIS PARAGRAPH AGAIN!!!! December 15, 2012 at 11:30 pm

      She said if she recalls the first time she started singing in a band its been 20 years now. she is 34 years old at the time of this interview do the math

  • Ada December 15, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    I have always loved Stella as an actress and I appreciate her even more for all the charitable organizations she is involved with that she does NOT brag about. Check out my blog lovelies! http://www.adainprogress.blogspot.com

  • Scarlet Xianne December 15, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Noticed the Interviewer could not seem to move on from her late husband. Anyway, I like Stella, was happy for her when she remarried. Did not even know she was divorced from her second husband….ha! What can I say? I wish her well…

  • Grace December 15, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Oh….you still feel like you are dreaming but you’ve had almost 5 men after him and now have a scandal about dating another actress husband….please,you’ve moved on shakena,dream ko dreamer ni

    • same here December 17, 2012 at 12:15 am

      My thoughts exactly….

    • anon April 26, 2013 at 6:05 pm

      i don’t know who you are but u are clearly naive. she has been with ‘5 men’ doesn’t mean she has moved on. sometimes we try to find people that will fill the hole in our hearts or people that will help us forget reality

  • sparks December 15, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    One of my favourite actresses, PLUS SHE CANNNN ACTUALLY SINGGGGG!.

  • Bamzi December 16, 2012 at 12:08 am

    Advice to you Stella: Gone are the days of celebs being rude or arrogant to ppl. The essence of a celebrity is their fan base.. if u want support in whatever venture u decide to pursue then you gotta come across as personable in order to gain fans. Watch what your mates are doing and follow suit. Get a publicist if u must, but u gotta deviate from this attitude.

  • Maz December 16, 2012 at 12:29 am

    @ Grace: Abi o, this interview seems more like damage control after the pictures of her and you know who’s ex hubby surfaced and rumours are going around. Anyway whatever she allegedly did (if it is true) then God is watching cos you reap what you sow.

  • M December 16, 2012 at 1:09 am

    I can see anti Stella(s) here, even after how many years you guys wouldn’t let her be. She’s angry about some things and rightfully so, nobody knows what she’s been through; I have lost and only one who has lost a lover can understand this, please! I am proud of you girl, if you want to get married 50more times, please do. Remember to put you first as all these whimps that claim they are defending their brother/friend that they love have no love or respect for him. It is well with you girl and those children would even become greater. You have tried, at 26? Women do you know what that means? to think that some of the naysayers are women. Its sad. We need to let people in love be, inlaws, friends, foes n co its best to mind your business and let love reign between two adults. The sick part is when its the women against women, sisters and mothers. Sucks. live your life dear to the fullest and be the happiest for you. I knew your husband and you vaguely and he loved you and so did you. God bless you and the children.

  • Pat December 16, 2012 at 1:48 am

    To be frank we humans should respect other people’s view. we do not now how much pain she has gone thru and still going thru. it is who that is wearing the shoes that knows how it fits. so lets not point fingers on her. Stella might have spoken in a defensive way but seriously that is the way people in quote have made her to be. so let her be. we all have our lives to live. so stop crucifying others. who no get skeleton for cupboard? she has tried as a person and she is still trying. so leave her to God to jugde and dont judge her because u r not God. Stella all the best in ur endeavour. The lord will continue to sustian and direct u in all ways Amen!!!!!

  • ada December 16, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Age is just a number but if u lie abt it , it’s more Dan a number.also I didn’t like d way she was answering d questions.

  • steph December 16, 2012 at 11:40 am

    Thank you oooooooo….haba……i truly wonder ow people gets so bothered about the way others live…its simple..she has said her part..everyone is entitled to his/her opinions…….she has the right to say whatever,…..dont calculate for her as u were not in the picture when she started…haba

  • Pinky lips December 16, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Nigerians are very toxic losers, the lady obviously wants to keep certain aspects of her life private and you guys are not satisfied People !!!!!!!!!!get a life because she is a celebrity does not mean her life is an open book to you all. Go Stella you have a right to some privacy

      For real! I get tired too with the way most Nigerians don’t mind their own business. It is why I keep Nigerians at bay.

  • Nkechi December 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    I too have questions about the age thing something doesn’t add up. Stella has beautiful long hair from what i have seen in movies i wonder why she feels the need to cover it up with huge wigs or weaves

  • omomark December 16, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    @BN-the question on my mind is “Is Stella in a relationsip with Daniel Ademinokan?”aside from the business partner,work colleague type.I guess that’s what we all want to know.How come she was not even asked?

  • polapola December 16, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    This interviwer is getting annoying with each interview..which one is ‘I’m only asking these questions to correct any false rumours being spread.’..yeah right…you are only asking to do amebo na!!

    She didnt say much about Kate Henshaw and what she did for her when her hubby died….are they no longer friends as before?

    • Bole eater December 17, 2012 at 10:58 am

      That is Stella Damasus. I won’t even say much but Stella will be exposed for who she really is one of these days and I await that day. Before that, I refuse to read all these public relations nonsense

        Ehhhh??? Please give us gist abeg. *grabs popcorn bowl*

  • Bunmi December 17, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    she was living a “good” life until the death of her husband. Things can never be the same for her again.

  • iffy December 17, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    What is it with people’s ages? if someone is 20 and claiming 14, how does that affect the price of PMS

  • Wee December 17, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    The young age at which she started hustling in Lagos explains a few things to me about this lady. Not that my (or any others’) opinion about her changes the price of bread :) but once you ascribe to that so called title of ‘Celebrity’, be ready to hear a lot of opinions, solicited or not!

    She comes across as quite immature, can’t blame her if her youth had so much hustle. She barely finished being a child before she had to ‘adult up’. So it seems in her adult life now, the unexpressed child in her still surfaces, hence the seeming immaturity. Her emotions and reaction to men betray it a bit, and not just in this period after her 1st husband passed.

    Some of her responses sound rebellious and funny, but a more mature mind would have hardly been fazed by a persistent/not too sensitive interviewer, and would have dismissed the undesired questions easily.

    Best wishes to Stella, but maybe she should slow down small with men for proper self-evaluation and adjustment where/if required. Everyone owes his/herself that to minimize future regrets.

  • Idak December 17, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    I will forgive Stella almost anything after suffering Jaiye’s demise. I will never wish such a loss on my worst enemy.
    Unlike my usual self, i really don’t care who she is dating. I just wish her the best and that she provides a good environment for her kids. Changing partners at will can’t be very good for them.

  • Itohan December 20, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Stella, I have just one advice – and this is form learning from ancient wisdom; learning from the wise: do not re-marry anyone because of their physical looks but marry them for the ‘enduring’ beauty that their soul and heart radiates. Reading through your interview on the central theme; at least in this interview of what you said about Mofe (i.e. he is handsome) is not different from what you said about Nzeribe. You were carried away by physical looks before and it failed you. I am not saying do not marry a good looking man but do not let that be ‘the attraction; the reason’. Be prayerful and careful so that it does not fail you again. I am your fan. God bless you and your children.
