Nigerian filmmaker and producer, Martini Animashaun has stated that men cheat in marriages for reasons such as lack of emotional connection, a desire for newness, communication issues, personal insecurities, or unresolved past issues.
In a recent interview, Martini, while reacting to a recent post about actress Laide Bakare stating the need to cheat on an unfaithful partner instead of leaving, indicated that he believes men cheat more in relationships.
The ace actor on what he thought about Laide Bakare’s opinion on cheating back when someone cheats on you ‘said;
“While it might seem tempting to respond to infidelity with a taste of their own medicine, taking the high road through open communication is a more fruitful path. Revengeful actions can intensify the issue and deepen the rift between partners.
“Instead, addressing the root causes of the infidelity, understanding each other’s perspectives, and working towards rebuilding trust can lead to a more resilient relationship. Choosing maturity over revenge allows for personal growth and a healthier resolution to the challenges at hand.”
Speaking further on whom he thought cheated more in relationships, he said, “I think men cheat more. Men may cheat for reasons such as a lack of emotional connection, a desire for newness, communication issues, personal insecurities, or unresolved past issues.
“Individual motivations vary, and addressing these underlying issues through open communication can contribute to healthier relationships.
The actor, who recently starred alongside legendary acts such as Dele Odule, Mercy Aigbe Jaiye Kuti, amongst others, in the thrilling movie ‘Aiye Nika’ also shared his thoughts on what he considers to be the major challenges affecting the Yoruba movie industry, stating
“In the Yoruba movie industry where I’m active, a big challenge is the lack of support among practitioners. When people in the industry don’t help each other out, it becomes hard for actors and filmmakers to succeed.
“This lack of teamwork can make it tough for the Yoruba movie industry to grow and for practitioners to have long-lasting careers.”
