Actress Maureen Solomon in a recent interview has revealed her reason for quitting acting. She said the need to take care of her family and be there for her children made her do so.
Over the years, Maureen’s fans have been wondering why she went off the movie scene. Some even rumoured that her husband was responsible for her break from Nollywood.
Well, Maureen Solomon threw more light on the reasons and even went on to debunk rumours that her husband was responsible for her decision.
In the interview, she said the need to take care of her family and be there for her children was more important to her than her bubbling acting career.
“It’s not so much silence because I want it to be so, but the fact that I am focused more on the family front, which I feel is more important. For all these years, I am grateful for the time that I have spent with my family, and continue to spend. I have devoted my time to my children for some time now. So, right now, I am coming back to work. My absence all these years has been because of my family.”
Speaking on the rumour about her husband being responsible for her break from acting, she said: “As a matter of fact, I got married in 2005 and I acted till 2011. The last time I did a movie was in 2011 and my husband never stopped me. So, I wonder why he would stop me in the middle of the way. My husband actually encourages my work, even in my going back now by the grace of God. It is still him that is pushing me and he will always spur me to do greater things, not just the normal thing we know of. So, he never stopped me, I stopped myself because I needed to dedicate more time to my children. My last house girl left as at the time I decided to stay home and I decided not to get another one. I practically had to become the house girl.”
