Renowned Nollywood actress, Shaffy Bello, recently opened up about the reasons behind her divorce after 25 years of marriage.

Shaffy Bello admitted that while her former spouse was a good father to their children, she yearned for more in her personal life.
However, the challenges of constantly traveling back and forth to maintain the relationship took a toll on her well-being and ultimately affected the stability of their marriage.
“He [my ex-husband] was a good father to his children. But I got to a place where I wanted more. And I would always travel back and forth. But I knew at a point that if I really want this, it came with a sacrifice.
It wasn’t a sacrifice of marriage, but then he being there [USA] and the distance didn’t help.”
