In what could have finally led to the divorce of Nigerian comedian Basketmouth and Miss Elsie, the wife in an old video subtly revealed that the love in her marriage had faded.

The comedian Thursday, via his Instagram account, officially announced the breakdown of their marriage.

"As much as it pains me to bring my personal life into the public space, this is an unavoidable situation. After much deliberation, my wife and I have made the difficult decision to end our marriage.

"As we move forward separately, we will continue to work together to give our beautiful children all the care, love, guidance, and support they need. We humbly ask that you respect our privacy as we navigate through these times. Thank you," his post reads.

Following that, netizens who were left hanging as to what happened to the couples dug out an old video in which then Mrs. Okpocha was advising ladies not to focus on love alone when getting married.

She advised single ladies to choose men with wisdom because marriage is a lifetime commitment.

"Before you marry anybody, make sure you use your head, not your heart; love is important in marriage but not the thing that should guide you because love fades.

"It’s marriage, not a vacation, it’s a lifetime commitment. Nobody goes into marriage hoping to get a divorce. Marry someone that has sense; that is the most important thing in marriage in order to make marriage work," she said in the tape.
