Seasoned Nigerian comedian and actor, Ayo Makun, professionally known as AY, has confirmed that his marriage to his wife, Mabel, has crashed.

AY took to his Instagram page to inform the public about the challenges in his marriage, amid claims that he cheated on his wife with an former Big Brother Naija housemate.

The standup comedian and father-of-two admitted that he has found himself doing some things that he isn’t proud of.

He said he is watching his marriage of 20 years fall apart, and did not like the idea of parties involved aportioning blames in public domain.

AY urged Nigerians not to assume that being loud is strong, and being quiet is weak. He added that he is just logical enough to understand the difference between opinions, values, beliefs, and facts.

He wrote: “Many people believe that staying silent simply means that one is incapable of dealing with issues. Projecting a negative narrative against someone who is not struggling to defend himself doesn’t mean he is weak. Some of us are just logical enough to understand the difference between opinions, values, beliefs, and facts.

“The personality and ability that I possess simply confirm that I have reached that stage in my life where I can not be entertaining the public with deep personal family issues. They just might be too much to handle concerning the individuals involved. Not even when I have a grown-up daughter who has access to social media. Her mental health needs to be protected from seeing things she cannot be proud of online.

“Yes! Without compromising my family, I have found myself doing some things that I am not proud of today. It is one thing to watch my friendship/marriage of 20 years slip off my hands, but it’s another thing for the parties involved to understand how to appropriate the blame in a space that is designed for most women to always play the victims and win. I can tell you for free that no one is completely innocent enough to cast stones.

“Presently, I am loving the way that lies about me in all these blogs are travelling faster than the truth. But my painful truth will eventually beat away all the lies.”
