For the first time on television, Agatha Amata speaks candidly about her marriage to actor and producer Fred Amata, their divorce, what it’s like to be a single mother, and what it’s like to be a genuine pioneer in Nigeria’s television business.

Watch:

On how the overwhelming desire of people wanting them back together affected her:

So, I was bombarded at the time. People who didnt know me were talking about me; that was a shock. You know, you do your things, and you dont realise how much of a public figure you are.

I entered a salon once, and people, without knowing I was the one sitting down there, were discussing my marriage. They were talking about me as if they lived in my house, that was the most incredible thing I have ever experienced! And the way they were discussing what led to the breakdown beside me, without even knowing me, it was amazing!

So, I didnt realize what kind of impact both Fred and I had made, because he was also out there. I did not expect it to become a talking point for everybody, those who knew us and those who didnt know us. Pastors were sending me messages, some were practically threatening me, and it was a bit overwhelming.

On the aftermath of her separation and divorce from Fred Amata:

I still meet people every day who still tell me that they pray Fred and I would get back together. I know that everybody wishes you well, but I always say to people, you cant wish me better than I wish myself; its not possible. On my wedding day, as I was dancing and rejoicing, I certainly had no plans to leave the marriage. I dont think theres anybody who, on their wedding day is calculating the divorce, except the person is crazy, but life happens. And it is very important to know, especially for women, when it is no longer adding to you, and it starts subtracting from you. I say this because the first thing I heard a lot of people say was, for the sake of your children, and let me say it clearly, an unhappy home cannot breed happy children. If anything, its going to injure those children and their outlook and their approach to marriage. The best you can do is for both of you to try to remain friends, as difficult as it may be. Which is what I tried to do, it didnt work. Im not I mean, it just didnt. Im not going to beat myself for the rest of my life, Im not the first Ill not be the last. Did both of us try? We did; it just wasnt working.

Theres nowhere they would mention Fred Amata that they wont mention Agatha Amata because I had two children for him and I married him. Even when they dont need to, theyll say Fred Amatas ex-wife, thats the introduction. It doesnt matter even if I remarry, theyll say the former wife of Fred Amata. Thats how theyll still do it. Ill be a fool to think I can wish that away, so why not just embrace it, acknowledge it and work with it.
