Ik Ogbonna puts his foot in his mouth about infidelity for some free press

This was one big but avoidable mistake.


Cheating is not having sex with another woman, it’s getting attached to them that is – IK Ogbonna ::::::::::::::::::: Nollywood actor IK Ogbonna is of the opinion that casual sex isn’t what cheating is all about. According to him, he believes that getting attached to the person, devoting time to the person is what cheating is. ::::::::::::::::: He said; “Cheating is not even having sex with a woman, that is one mistake people make. Cheating is when you find yourself developing feelings for someone. Let me explain, if a man finds himself in a situation where he sleeps with a woman for 30minutes and after that it’s done and dusted that’s breaking marital vows not cheating and then you move on with life.” He further stated that he doesn’t think he can forgive infidelity.

Actor Ik Ogbonna, while promoting his new film Excess Luggage, gave an interview where he was asked about cheating. An unnecessary but understandable question considering Ogbonna is happily married and often plays the ‘heartthrob’ in many of his films. Ogbonna launches into this spiel about how cheating differs from ‘breaking one’s vows’. According to him, breaking one’s vows refers to casual sex with a person that is not your wife. He suggests that this kind of sexual encounter is transient and such cannot really harm a relationship. Cheating on the other hand for him is when the physical attraction transmutes into an emotionally charged relationship outside of marriage.

Of course, once the clip hit the internet, it quickly went viral and Nigerians promptly set him straight. And Ogbonna himself came to give this convoluted speech about how he was misquoted (yeah right) and what he meant was that a ‘breaking of vows’ has less severity than cheating but that his general gist was that any form of intimacy outside marriage is a sin. Like really.

Sex without the knowledge and consent of your partner has serious physical consequences – STDs being one of them. We seem to condense stepping out of committed relationships and marriages to a simple matter of a breach of trust, but it could have even more stringent consequences.

One can only wish for a day when Nigerian celebrities would understand it is quite fine to pass on a question.
