Some time ago, Nollywood actress, Stella Damasus, was allegedly accused of snatching her husband, Daniel Ademinokan, from a co-actress, Doris Simeon-Ademinokan. All the while Stella has been quiet over the allegation, but has now come out to air her concerns in an interview with ThisDay.
The man in question is a Nigerian producer/director and the brain behind Stella’s Newly Released Music Album, The Alternative. Daniel Ademinokan met Doris Simeon on set and eventually married the Yoruba and English actress. However, their marriage hit the rocks when they got divorced in May 2003, after the birth of their son and only child together.
Less than one year afterwards, Stella Damasus was seen hanging around the movie director, a sign that provoked the rumors of her snatching him from his wife. This is what the accused actress and singer has to say about the whole Daniel-Doris-Stella ordeal.
“On one of the comments I have seen consistently, over and over again’ is, ‘Stella snatches somebody’s husband’; ‘Stella the husband snatcher which is what has been going on.”
“And I had sworn that I would never talk about it or even listen or stress myself about the issue. But I have decided to talk about it now, so that I end it once and for all. How is it possible to go to somebody’s home, and take a man, and take his son, away from his home and say follow me.”
“(Let’s assume) You are a man, and according to their story, he is happily married inside his home with his family. Complete and I walk into that home to forcefully take a man, able-bodied man, and a kid, away from somebody’s hand and you are there looking at me. How does that work?”
“So logically if people actually sit down and think about it intelligently, how do you snatch somebody from somebody and the person is there looking at you?”
“So when you see a man who has settled ties with a woman and decides to move on with his life and you feel that there is something in this man that you like and he likes you, is there a problem there? I am not a kid. I am not about to start hiding myself.”
Stella Damasus was unfortunate in her first marriage to Jaiye Aboderin, who died twelve years ago. After him, she’s been rumored to have been romantically involved with some top Nollywood celebrities including Richard Mofe-Damijo. Her marriage Daniel Ademinokan has brought her more enemies as Doris Simeon claims her husband left her for Stella.
