“Na Only Jesus Dey Carry Cross,” Actor Nedu Gives Reason Divorce is Necessary in Unhappy Marriage

Nollywood actor and media personality Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, popularly known as Nedu, has shared his insights into the prevalent issue of divorce within the Nigerian entertainment industry.

According to the comedian, the primary reason behind the high divorce rates among celebrities is the absence of peace in their marriages.

In a recent interview with Hip TV, Nedu emphasised the importance of mental well-being and asserted that if marriage compromises one’s happiness, divorce should be considered a valid option.

He debunked the notion that individuals should endure unhappy marriages as their “crosses,” stating, “No, na only Jesus dey carry cross.”

Nedu expressed his stance on divorce, advocating for prioritizing peace of mind. He asserted, “My take on divorce is, if it doesn’t work, then take a walk. I’m all for peace of mind. Whatever is not giving me peace, I don’t want it. I can’t come and go and kill myself.

He further stated, “Some people tell you, it’s your cross, carry am. No, na only Jesus dey carry cross. If you’re not giving me peace of mind, then what am I doing with you? Absolutely, nothing. I protect my sanity which is the most important part of who I am. I’m asking people to divorce but ask yourself if you’re going home every day because of the kids and not the person you married. That tells you a lot. If the person you are married to doesn’t give you joy, then what are you doing? If it’s not working, get out.”
