Multiple award winning actress and singer, Stella Damasus, has opened up about her first husband, Jaiye Aboderin, who died suddenly 16 years ago.
The 42 years old mother of two girls (from Jaiye) for the first time since the death of her husband on December 3, 2004, made public statements about the late singer and performer from the famous Aboderin family.
Posting on her Instagram page on Thursday in what seemed to be remembrance of the late father of her two children, the Benin, Edo State-born entertainer who hails from Asaba, Delta State said she still misses him and talks about him with the children on a daily basis.
She said her late husband brought joy, comfort, happiness and support to all who came his way.
According to her, she smiles every time she remembers Jaiye, even in her third marriage.
The full post by the actress who posed in a photo wearing a branded T-shirt of remembrance reads:
“It’s been 16 years since we lost my hubby JAIYEJEJE ABODERIN. Still feels like yesterday. I wasn’t sure I could bring myself to write this but I need to.
“Our daughters are 21 and 18 now, all grown up. They decided to do something different this year to honour him. We all miss him and talk about him daily. Jay is not the kind of man that you forget.
“I smile each time I remember or talk about him because that’s what he represented to all who knew him. He brought joy, happiness, comfort and support to all.
“I cry sometimes because I wish he could have spent more time with us. But God knows best. Anyone who has lost a spouse will understand what I mean.
“JAY will never be forgotten. His legacy lives on. No matter where we go or who we become, he will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace Obim.”
It will be recalled that the actress had a face-off with the Aboderin family when she got married to Emeka Nzeribe in 2007, three years after Jaiye died.
The marriage lasted for seven months before a mutual agreement to divorce.
In 2011, she became associated with multiple award-winning Nollywood producer and director, Daniel Ademinokan. The couple have been together ever since.
Their relationship with her third husband sparked a lot of controversy because both parties never publicly admitted to be dating, engaged or even married until 2014.
