Filmmaker and writer, ‘Mobola Rahman explores another side of domestic abuse, which is not often discussed. In this episode of The Monologues, the viewers meet Kevin – a man who has to ‘be a man’ in the face of all the pain and violence he is subjected to at home.

Synopsis
He is an architect. Introverted, a little shy. He is quite athletic and enjoys swimming. He is married to Agatha, they’ve been married for about five years and what started out as an awesome relationship is now sour.
Agatha is emotionally and physically abusive and manipulative. As a man, it’s both strength and weakness to endure his relationship. It’s also difficult opening up about his abuse as no one takes him serious, or believes him.
He has tried to leave but as bad as things are, he still loves her.

    So I just logged into YouTube and randomly came across the interview Tonto’s husband granted regarding the whole domestic violence accusation. The audio quality is beyond terrible. Almost borderline garbage but through the torture of it all, I managed to make out what he was saying. Just curious as to why none of the blogs are blogging about it? I hope you guys haven’t been bought?? While I don’t believe everything he said, I do believe a lot of the things he said. Tonto has always been violent, I’ll never forget her burning those bags. I also find it odd that her bestie swanky Jerry hasn’t spoken up in her defense throughout this whole madness. Now would be the time since her husband claimed he was there while she was breaking things & stuff. Honestly some women can be so vindictive and can be very good at ACTING as the victim. Tonto has the social media advantage being a “celebrity” and all.. it is So pathetic watching all of these unfold even more so for the little kid involved. Beyond terrible!

    ..of course, it`s only women that are abused in marriages…that`s what women think anyways smh. Men are too proud to come out and tell our own side of the stories of abuse. I have been a victim. Abuse could be physical and psychological.

    A man that a woman is abusing; is that one a man?

      A silly question. Women who have been hit by me , are the women? See how senseless your question is when it is reversed.

      @Cath it’s that sort of philosphy that won’t enable men suffering DV come out and seek help.
      STOP!

    while working for an IO in Cambodia around 2008-2009, an Igbo woman always beat her husband, then she used a metal rod to break his head, long story short, Bros had brain damage and eventually died after 6 months, the issue came to us when the Igbo community in Cambodia refused to help in flying the body to Nigeria, they said the woman was always beating her husband …. it was a big mess around that time…

    Please if your wife is abusive leave that marriage.
    People can mock or say whatever they want, but your safety is of utmost importance.
    Nobody should remain with an abusive spouse – male or female.
