RMD opened up about the time he had an accident in Delta state and his wife, Abike, had read a report in the media that he was with a woman and a baby in the car during the accident, all of which was a lie.
“Infact, we were on holidays in America when this thing came up and she said, didn’t you know what they wrote and I was like how?? That when the accident happened, I was carrying baby things and hiding them and I was like it must be really serious, someone must have stood somewhere in a nearby bush watching me do all this and then now reported it."
RMD who talked about the challenges celebrity marriages face, opened up about another time when it was reported that he had a young wife in Lagos whom he planned to leave his wife for.

Why do people like to see celebrity marriages crash?
According to the film star, his wife finds it hard to handle some of these things. He went on to question what people stand to gain from reporting lies and trying to destroy the marriages of celebrities.
In his word:
"This is the age of social media, there are people who, they look at you and without any regard for the sanctity of your marriage or your home, all you want to do is just tear me down like oh he’s in love with somebody else, he’s going to leave his wife tomorrow, like how do you even wake up and do that, what have I done to you? Have I come to you to abuse you and your marriage? Why do people like to see celebrity marriages crash? And what had helped is that I’ve never really seen myself as a celebrity and so my marriage is not a “celebrity marriage” and so she has kept it."
