Iconic Emeka Ike and Dayo Amusa, both Nigerian actors, have spoken out on the problem of domestic abuse. The stars stated in separate messages on their social media accounts that domestic abuse is not gender-based.

Ike shared a video of a woman hitting a man on his verified Instagram account. He explained in his commentary section that without films like that, the lady might play the victim card and get the male imprisoned.

He also stated that many young guys have been detained overseas for concerns resembling domestic violence. “ABUSE IS REAL… male or woman,” Ike wrote. It is completely WRONG. Plenty of our lads are imprisoned in the WILD WEST… He would still be blackmailed and imprisoned if these tapes did not exist.


Meanwhile, Amusa, a delicious actress, had a similar viewpoint with her colleague, delectable actress, Amusa, who remarked that toxic women kill nice guys, but no one talks about it. “Toxic women ruin nice guys as well, but we seldom ever talk about it,” she tweeted.

However, the actress admitted to her followers on Monday through her verified Instagram profile that she has been in abusive relationships. She characterised herself as always trying to be the fixer, which explains why she stayed in toxic relationships but failed.

“YOU CAN NOT FIX A BROKEN EGG,” she said in her message. I used to work as a fixer. I persisted in poor relationships, attracting the same men — men who needed to be cured.

“I know a lot of ladies in similar situations.” We attract guys who cheat, men who are commitment-phobic, men who are emotionally unavailable, men who are emotionally broken, alcoholics, drug addicts, narcissists, and sociopaths. It’s as if we’re a magnet for guys with shattered parts all over the place, and for some reason, we feel driven to glue these pieces back together, but I must say, I’ve failed every time.

“I never allowed myself the opportunity to step back and analyse my reasons.” Instead of questioning why I felt required to pick up someone else’s broken pieces, I raced to do so without hesitation. Coming second didn’t matter since I was putting someone else’s merit first, and in the end, rank doesn’t matter, right?

“I recognised that I was attracting these sorts of men because I thought I could help them.” We believe that as unselfish, compassionate, and caring women, we will be “the woman”—the one who will alter them. We believe we can convert a cheater into a devoted boyfriend. We believe we can assist him in getting off drugs and alcohol. We feel we can assist him in overcoming his commitment concerns and achieving a solid future with us. We are certain that we will be able to free him of the emotional baggage he has been carrying for years.

“We attract these men because we feel they require us and that abandoning them would be selfish, callous, and merciless.” The bad news is that when things don’t change, we continuously blame ourselves. We believe that every time they fail us, it is because we have failed them. Their grip on us tightens; they keep us around despite the fact that they have nothing to give. Just my opinion, but if that relationship or marriage is unhealthy, please leave!”
