The Instagram post of Elsie, the wife of Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha, popularly known as Basketmouth, has sparked reactions online.
The post came hours after her husband announced the end of their 12-year-old union.
Recall that the humour merchant took Nigerians by surprise after taking to his verified Instagram page on Thursday to announce the end of their 12 years of marriage.
The caption of the text as posted by Basketmouth reads: “As much as it pains me to bring my personal life to the public space, this is an unavoidable situation. After much deliberation, my wife and have made the difficult decision to end our marriage. As we move forward separately, we will continue to work together to give our beautiful children all the care, love, guidance and support they need. We humbly ask that you respect our privacy as we navigate through these times Thank you.”
Basketmouth called for privacy at the moment as he also made it clear that he wouldn’t be revisiting the matter after his announcement.
Elsie could be said to have carried on as she recently published a post on her page, giving relationship tips to fellow women. She referenced an argument about women cooking for men during dating stages and she discussed how it shouldn’t be such a big deal.
She noted that the important thing is for a woman to know her limit and that the guy in question is not taking advantage of her.
Elsie added that no matter what a lady chooses to do or not, it won’t influence the decision of a guy when choosing a partner for marriage.
