Ghanian actress, Juliet Ibrahim has appealed to women to quit their ‘unwholesome marriages’. This came as she opened up on divorce with her ex-husband, Kwadwo Safo.
She reportedly married Kwadwo Safo Jnr, a prominent Ghanaian businessman and the current CEO of Kantanka Group in 2010, after she got pregnant for him in the course of their friendship.
Their union was blessed with a son, Jayden Safo but later divorced in 2014. Juliet found love again in Nigerian rapper, Iceberg Slim but didn’t last as they are no more. Read more about their relationship here.
Speaking with Citi News, during her book launch in Ghana, the actress admonished the public on not judging people who want to end their marriages, saying hers left her in a dark place where she was miserable.
” People have had their own perception about what led to my divorce. I have sat down for many years and have had to deal with the pain and insults from the public who had no clue what I went through as a person during that period and how it affected me.
“The depression and all that happened. All I will say is you should never judge someone who wants to come out of a marriage. Because sometimes it is better to come out of it than to stay in it. For your own sanity and mental stability, it is always good to take a bold decision for yourself. For your kids, if there are kids involved take a bold decision,” she said.
