Juliet Ibrahim & Hubby are Divorced – Read the Official Statement



Juliet Ibrahim - March 2014 - BellaNaija 02
Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim and her husband Kwadwo Safo are no longer together.

On Friday, the actress was the centre of headlines across the blogosphere. Nollywood actor IK Ogbonna posted and later deleted a video asking Juliet to stay with him, apologizing for his wrong doings.

Photos of the pair’s intimate moments were flashed on the screen as the video played. Click here to read

In March 2014, Juliet and her now ex husband Kwadwo denied reports that they have split. “I think people should mind their own business and worry about better things affecting the industry.” she said. Missed that? Read it here

Her rep has released a statement to BN that the two have been divorced and it has been finalized.

“It has been difficult for Ghanaian Actress-Juliet Ibrahim to let her fans know that her marriage with Kwadwo Safo has long ended due to the fact that, as a mother, she has been keen on making the welfare of her child paramount.

Her decision to keep the divorce on the low was so that the two involved would not be distracted from their responsibilities towards the child they have together.

However, Juliet Ibrahim has found it necessary to let her fans know today that, she filed for a divorce and it is final. She is no more married to Kwadwo Safo and the marriage ended a while back.

With the interest of an innocent child on the table, we ask that you treat this difficult but necessary decision to put her divorce out there for her fans to know with utmost respect.

Juliet Ibrahim and ex-husband Kwadwo Safo have agreed to remain friends and stay in close contact for the benefit of the child,despite the fact that their marriage didn’t work as planned.”

    So those that literally mean, while she was still married to her husband, she was ‘gracefully’ committing adultery with Ik Ogbonna?
    This is so pathetic I must say.
    cos she and ik have been together for a while.
    Why would a married woman leave her home in ghana, galivating in Nigeria, looking for young guys on a date, or apparently searching for a movie role I guess.

    And Mr ik ogbonna, I thought you had a girlfriend you were going down with? And you have been dating a married woman, I believe you don’t know the consequences in the long run.
    Well, whatever rock your boat.

    Kids suffer divorce the most and its not fair for parents to let that happen. Watever the case may be. Just know you have failed your kid by denying him or her deserved parental love.

      Eziokwu? So they should remain in a loveless marriage? It’s better parents divorce and maintain a healthy upbringing for the child, than allowing a child witness domestic violence and other issues. I don’t believe anyone goes into a marriage hoping to get divorced; it’s a shame when it doesn’t work out, but definitely not the end of the world

      There is always that one STOOOOPID comment that makes me worry for the fate of mankind. With folks like you out there judging others, this life is made even more difficult than it already is. The amazing thing though is YOU, (Mr/Mrs Promo Nigeria Blog) are not perfect and probably have a lot of flaws like the rest of us, yet you deem it appropriate to sit in judgment of others. Hypocrisy galore! Carry on! God is watching you in 28D.

      PS. Make sure you stay put in your marriage regardless of what is happening in it. Even if the marriage wan turn you to craze pesin, make sure you stay there oh. NEVER LEAVE IT!

    Very Laughable. Julie, So you fell into the trap of the Naija men syndrome with their very sweet mouth take it from a Naija Girl this aint going no where. Didn’t you learn a thing or two from Yvonne Nelson? Plus aren’t you too mature for IK?

    For the sake of the child indeed. Partying all around Lagos every other week and not staying with her child in ghana is truly in the interest of the child

      Dead at the comment above! ok o! On a serious note, marriage is not the beginning and end of it all. Happiness is the key here. There is no justified service to stay in a marriage unless you are both happy in it. The damage this does to kids, staying in a marriage just for the sake of marriage is more detrimental than any of you can ever deem to imagine. Kids are better off having two parents that respect and tolerate each other, than ones at each other’s throat 247. I am not an advocate for divorce but seriously this mentality right here is why we have no hope in the future. Marriage is not by force o! I don’t care much for Juliet or Ik but I would to think that if one is not happy in a marriage, regardless of the kids or not, time to walk and find happiness alone or elsewhere , and yes, for your sake and the sake of your kids!

    Juliet Ibrahim did not divorce the husband because of IK. The Picture IK posted were shots from a movie i recently managed as the production manager and am so surprise he’s using that as fun pic he had with Juliet. I fink IK is using that to seek attention cos he personally asked me to get him gig in Ghana. If not for these cheap publicity am sure most of you don’t even knw him…

    Juliet! Juliet! JULIET! You divorced your husband for that IK Ogbonna??? It is not too late. Yes, there can be reconciliation after divorce. Go and beg your husband. Pray. Don’t let 15 minutes of fame destroy your life.

    Ik, you are very wicked. You purposely posted that video to embarrass her and put the final nail in her marriage. Close your trousers to married women!

    Lies upon lies. You divorced your hubby for someone that is a mirage. He cannot marry you nor offer you anything. You got lured into the celeb fake lifestyle of partying lies. Its never too late. You can still fix things up. Ik has nothing to offer you. Likewise all the. Rest. You will be passed around like a ball. Some months back were not denying that you marriage is intact. That lizard looking ik whatever, God is watching you. You fell madam , but theres forgiveness as long your hubby is not a wife beater or emotional abuser. I feel for you. The glitter of yellow boy with tattoo, club hoping you g love but all is a mirage. Can he offer you a home or be dad to your son, what can he do for you apart from lies and sex. Save your marriage girl,and stay away from nija men. They r vipers awon onidokido. They will poke u tire and turn you into pokimon. Awon dogidogi. Mtsheew. Disrespectful boy By posting his useless video, hes exposed you.

    God have mercy on the marriage institution. You hear divorce stories everywhere these days. Juliet and hubby look good together in the pix above. I totally agree with @Amh, as long as he is not a wife beater or an emotional abuser, please go back to ur hubby in the name of God. Club and party life is no life. #my 2cents

    Juliet is a pretty girl we see in nigeria hanging out or partying . Her marriage was over for some time so you can’t blame her for dating a handsome young man Ik . It was too obvious they were Inlove so many people can attest to that. So that’s cheap for her team to use lies to cover up . Production my ass . We are not blind and we can see , ik has said nothing about them yet . I only wonder why he deleted the video. I thought that was the highest level of humility and quite romantic . But my dear celebrities everyone has a life to live some of us have worse stories but because they are in the public eye what they do is out there. For the ik boy what he did was an act of emotional weakness and for me I would say that’s a man inlove , just don’t get how a bad boy can fall for a girl like Juliet . I think he can do better than her second hand value . If you follow both of them you would see that they have been subbing each other on Instagram especially Juliet who keeps posting pictures erring her mind and people think she is just sharing fun pictures. Ik Ogbonna should try and forget her and move on . Last time I saw them together at some resort 2 weeks ago they couldn’t let go of each other . Yesterday at the city people awards it was a spectacle as she came with a body guard . And the two couples acted like total strangers . Ik refused to comment on this . Hmmmmmm,mm

    Divorce is now the easiest way out, instead of trying to make your marriage work . Marriage is not always rosy but u should have know this before jumping into it. Mtchewww

    Kwadwo Safo should take a paternity test. Divorce happens, but its always good

    I am from Ghana and This guy Kojo Safo comes from a well respected Home (the Safos are Ashantis) – Very well respect home – “The Safos”. He use to live in America, how he ended up with this THOT as a wife beats my mind. You can never make a heaux into a housewife. That is a universal fact.

    I am sure his family is happy now.

    Now this THOT can move on and go back to her heauxing days

    First Jackie Appiah – now Juliet Ibrahim. God blesses you with such good husband yet you make fame over shadow you and leave your husbands. Diaris a God in what you are doing. I feel sorry for the kids involved.

    Anyway i dont know if yall know this yet but John Dumelo & Joselyn Dumas are going real strong – they fell for each other after a movie shoot. They are on the hush hush but eventually it will come out – another couple on the downlow dating each other is Genevieve Nnaji and E.A. But you aint heard it from me. They are both falling so hard for each other. I dont blame Genny though, dude has a good kind heart – very kind generous dude.

    Am out.

    (ps: abeg dont ask what the initials stand for – eventually the truth will come out, unless Genny and him are able to keep it private like Kerry Washington did with his now current husband. Whoever knows what the initials stand for Keep it to your self and keep smiling – dont reveal it.)

      come on incogneato, surely u ar intelligent enof to know dat a persons tribe does not determine de worth of his home. ashanti is a tribe just like igbo or yoruba or any oda. dis is not a platform for tribalcentricism pls.

      June 23, 2014 at 6:26 pm

      what the hell are you talking about
      WHERE the FCUK did i mention ANYTHING at all about his wealth. Are you stupid.Can you read????? Just to give a lil background of him, I just talked about his family, his tribe and where he is from and you are equating it to something else. Where exactly did i equate WEALTH and tribe you foolish girl. Go back and read. Nonsense! . Dont come for me unless i send for you. Poof Bye

      …And I really just can’t with the “He use to live in America”, OMG! Like what the f*** does that have to do with anything? Okay so because he used to live in America that makes him faultless or royal or elite? I don’t even know why you felt the need to mention that. If it is for any of the aforementioned reasons, then that goes to further prove how ignorant that whole comment was. I fear oh!

      June 23, 2014 at 8:10 pm

      Curious and Papermoon, he/she is just giving the facts and never said living in America makes him better or worse or that Ashantis are better. If I say I’m Efik and I once lived in Japan as a way to describe myself, does that mean I’m tribalist and snobbish? Someone made statements but your reaction to them says much more about you. Smh.

      June 24, 2014 at 8:08 am

      This guy Kojo
      Safo comes from a well respected
      Home (the Safos are Ashantis) –
      Very well respect home – “The
      Safos” says who. his father is a stack illiterate with jelly curls who runs a spiritual church and uses his members as slave labour. he locks them up in a yard at de end of de day (which is a form of imprisonment) but is being protected by politician friends.
      And another thing i said WORTH not WEALTH. learn to pay attention.

    Wth y’all this is none of our business.Sometimes people are just better apart. I used to think I was the cause and be sad when my parents separated then when they got back together it was awesome 4 like days then the yapping started some people just can’t get along now they in different places and my ears can rest.Yeah divorce sucks but so does marriage especially if one of the spouse is abusive.
