Shaffy Bello Opens Up About Split From Husband After 25 Years 

Few couples can navigate the difficulties of long-distance relationships successfully.

By Omotayo Olutekunbi

Shaffy Bello, a veteran Nollywood actress, has spoken up about the causes that led to the breakdown of her 25-year marriage.

The actress highlighted the difficulty of sustaining a long-distance relationship as the key reason for the breakup in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo.

Bello said that her estranged spouse, Mr. Akinrimisi, lived in the United States, which caused substantial difficulties in their marriage. Constantly hopping between nations strained their relationship, causing her to decide to seek a divorce.

While admitting that her ex-husband was a loving father to their children, the actress voiced a yearning for more in her personal life. She understood that following her dreams required sacrifices, but their physical gap proved overwhelming.

“I reached a point where I wanted more,” Shaffy explained. “I would always travel back and forth, but I realised that if I really wanted this, it came with sacrifices. It wasn’t sacrificing the marriage itself, but rather, him being there in the USA and the distance didn’t help.”

The actress stated that dealing with the situation got tougher, forcing her to dissolve the marriage.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Bello has discussed partnerships. During an episode of ‘Mercy’s Menu,’ Shaffy aired her reservations about traditional marriage to fellow actress Mercy Johnson. Instead, she emphasized the value of friendship and finding a good partner with whom to settle down, but not necessarily within the limits of marriage.

“I am a one-man kind of woman, and I believe there are a lot of women here to fill a home,” Shaffy explained. “That is why when I meet people or go on a date, they are women. I want to settle with someone at the end of the day, I don’t want to be 55 and then go out or have a birthday party and then come home and be all alone, I don’t want that. I want to be with someone, maybe not marriage, but a companion.”

Shaffy Bello, a well-known character in Nigeria’s entertainment business, is a brilliant film actress and singer. Her vocal performance to Seyi Sodimu’s renowned 1997 hit song “Love Me Jeje” garnered considerable notice. Elevator Baby (2019), Chief Daddy (2018), and When Love Happens (2014) are a few of her major film roles.
