Actress Foluke Daramola Says Her First Marriage Was Her Worst Nightmare

Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola- Salako, who recently turned 40, says one of the hardest things she has had to do is keep her sanity intact. 



In a chat with Saturday Beats, the actress noted that it was a difficult task remaining sane in a country like Nigeria and she gave her reasons.


“The turbulent thing I have faced especially in a place like Nigeria is that we are practically under pressure as celebrities. People keep demanding things from us and they don’t care how we meet their demands. They put a lot of pressure on me. Being psychologically and emotionally stable in Nigeria for over 40 years has not been an easy task. People see the glamour on the television screen and believe that is how we live in reality. Being psychologically stable despite all odds like living up to expectation, the pressure of living the way you want to and also even differentiating reality from showbiz has not been easy. Those are my turbulent times.

A good thing about being a celebrity, however, is that when you are known, you are celebrated and it opens doors for you. Being known gives you a voice when others are struggling to get a voice.”


While speaking of a dark time in her life, the actress disclosed that her previous marriage made her face her worst nightmare.

She said, “Another turbulent time for me was when I had to leave my first marriage. I would say I left the marriage as a shadow of myself. When I left that marriage, I felt less than myself and I felt the world had come to an end. That was a time in my life that was very turbulent. What I dread most in my life is to have a broken home and I experienced it with my first marriage. So I would say that was a time in my life that was really turbulent. But a very lovely and good time in my life was when I met the man I am married to. It was a wonderful time in my life.”


Unlike some of her colleagues who opted for a lavish birthday celebration, the actress decided to have a party with children living with Down’s syndrome. She explained, “I did not throw a lavish birthday party because the age I attained was a significant one in my life. I wanted to celebrate it with people that I would always remember. I have always had reasons to throw parties. Also, my birthday falls around Valentine season which is synonymous with love, so I decided to show love to the people who on a normal day are not shown love. I wanted to have a party with the special children to make them happy and feel special and that is why I celebrated my birthday with children living with Down’s syndrome.

    1. Foluke Daramola should continue telling lies. Isn't it Professor Sobowale's son she first got married too. The guy lost his first wife to sickle cell and married this husband snatcher.
      They attended same Baptist Church and we all grew up together. The Sobowale's are very humble people, but i think its very disrespectful that Foluke will tell such lies.
      Guess she is very happy that she broke a RCCG Pastors home and got married to her husband and denied the children of their father's daily love.
      God is watching you Foluke and pasan ti won fin naa Iyale, o nbe loke fun iwo naa.
      You for do 40th party naa make we see the calibre of people wey go attend.
      Shameless thing, Lai Mohammed daughter.

    3. Anon 12:25 speak of things you are 100 percent sure of. I wish I could spill more but I risk revealing my identity. Tunde Sobowale was not only a paedophile at alagbado where he lived with foluke before she fleed. Yes she fleed because there were becoming a nuisance with their constant fights . Tunde was constantly assaulting her and once chased her with a cutlass. Tunde was also a chronic womanizer and was famous for assaulting these unsuspecting women after. I mean beating them to a stupor. Tunde do you remember Ka....t? Hmmm!
      He was once chronically ill with Hepatitis. Shall I continue ? Please ask them to debunk this and I will be back to spill some more and yes I was one of those women assaulted by Tunde. Ironically he has daughters and I do not wish half of the hav0c he wrecked on all those poor women on them but I honestly hope he apologies to every woman he assaulted because karma is real. Farida iyawo tunde tuntun how market o? You sef don run abi?

  5. It is terrible when people subtly throw shade at others. Just say you wanted a low key party for your 40th or you wanted to spend it with people who are normally not shown love. We will applaud you for that and move on but when you say “Unlike your fellow colleagues who threw a lavish party” are you talking about that mercy aigbe lady... she did what she wanted for herself don’t throw shade on her or put her celebration down.. that’s just bad, our people are fond of making those type of statements to make them selves feel better or higher
