Actress Nkiru Umeh has labelled any family member that expects to come first before a matrimonial partner as “devil’s apprentice”.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, the actress shared her opinion to her followers in placing their priorities between their family members and their marital partners.
“This is not rocket science🙄 enough of the debates flying around bikonu🙄🙄 If you have a beautiful and peaceful union with your partner this should be effortless. Any family member that expects to come first before a matrimonial partner is a devil’s apprentice period!!! We all have married siblings and we should know our place and stop complicating things,” she wrote.
Her comments followed comparison by Nigerians on social media of the marriages of singer Peter Okoye (Mr P) and Lola Omotayo and that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Nigerians commended Peter for standing by his wife who has been accused of causing problems in the family, while also pitting Peter with Prince Harry over the latter’s support of Meghan at the expense of the royal family.
