‘Learn to embrace your husband’s side chick for better mental health’ – Kudirat Ogunro urges women
Kudirat Ogunro (aka Kudi Alagbo), a fast-rising Yoruba actress and filmmaker advised married women to accept the fact that their husbands will have other women outside.
She also advised that women should be able to live with their husbands’ side chicks for better mental health.
She said, “These days, one (a woman) needs to have it at the back of one’s mind that at home, one’s husband could be ‘my bear’. But, when he is outside, he becomes, ‘our daddy’. I believe that 70 percent of men cheat; so for one’s sanity, one should know that a ‘side chic’ exists somewhere. By doing that, one can celebrate more blissful years in one’s marriage. This truth is bitter for some, but the earlier one knows it, the better for one’s mental health.”
Kudi also disagreed with the notion that all actresses depend on ‘sugar daddies’ to meet their needs. She said, “I don’t belong to the school of thought that believes actresses depend on sugar daddies to meet their needs. Some may depend on helpers for assistance, but because most of us are in the limelight, any successful thing we do is usually linked to a sugar daddy.”
Speaking on why she delved into making herbal products, she said, “Kudi Alagbo is the brand name I gave my herbal products. I am from a family where everyone has a knowledge of herbs. Unlike many who sell herbs online and don’t have the wherewithal, I am different because that was our family’s means of livelihood when I was growing up; and even till now.”
