By Temitope Ojo
Popular Nigerian comedienne, Oluwadamilola Adekoya, popularly known as Princess, has being speaking on why her union to a Yoruba movie actor/producer, Jeremiah Adeshola, lasted two weeks.
Speaking in a new video on Bar Room Therapy, Princess noted how cyber
bullying contributed to her marriage crash and added that on the
morning of her wedding, she was called ugly by online trolls.
She said several people thought the union lasted for seven months but
it actually lasted two weeks.
According to the humour merchant, social media played a huge role in
the collapse of her marriage.
She said “The only time I felt bad about my fame was when my marriage ended. I felt if I weren’t this popular; people wouldn’t have talked
“So many marriages crash on a daily basis but you will not hear about
them. Some people have been married five times but you will not hear
their gist because they are not in the eye of the public.
People didn’t know that the marriage had broken up until December when I felt I was strong enough to handle the publicity that it generated. I was
shocked! People called me from all parts of the world including China.
Some people cried while some people felt happy.”
She also praised Tiwa Savage saying she handled her marriage crisis
with husband Tunji Balogun expertly.
She said Tiwa is a typical example of a strong woman.

held at Balmoral Events Centre, Oregun, Lagos.
The marriage was solemnised by the leadership of C&S Movement Church
Ayo Ni O led by popular Prophet Gabriel O. Fakeye and eight other
