Maris was heard in the video pleading with the film star. She also asked who is Chioma Jasmine to him.
“My children dey here dey suffer. This man came to kill me. Don’t tell me it is okay, you don’t know what I am suffering. He came prepared to beat and kill me,” she said in a mixture of pidgin and English.
But reacting in an Instagram live session with Daddy Freeze, the actor denied the domestic violence allegations.
He said, “She’s my wife but there has been so much misunderstanding between us. That’s because she doesn’t want to understand the kind of person I am and my way of life,” he said.

The actor also dismissed the claim that Jasmine was his girlfriend and not his daughter.

“She (Jasmine) is 100 per cent (my father’s) daughter, not biological but adopted right from childhood.
“Maris, who is my step-mother, is being brainwashed by her friends….my own mother is married to another man, but she is in Lagos,” he said.

Why I’m backing Tinubu, not supporting Funke Akindele — Bimbo Akintola
Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akintola, has explained why she has pitched her tent with the All Progressives Congress, including its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for the 2023 elections.
The prominent Nollywood actress revealed this in an interview she granted Television Continental recently.
Akintola said she belong to the APC Presidential Campaign Council.
She said: “I am with the PCC.
“I’m working for Asiwaju.
“And I’m also with CGI (Connecting Grassroots Initiative), which MC Oluomo started.
“What we are doing is going door to door.
“First and foremost, Asiwaju built talent.
“He found people who can do things.
“Look at his cabinet when he was governor.
“Those are the names we call now.
“We see (Babatunde Raji) Fashola, (Yemi) Osinbanjo, Wale Edun.
“And they are the so-called young names we call in politics.

“And they all came from where?
“It’s because Asiwaju sourced them and brought them on.
“We would be excited about the changes that would happen in this country.”
Akintola said one of the reasons she is backing the former Lagos State Governor to emerge the president of the country was his support for the creative industry.
She said: “I know he has a vision for Nigeria, which is crucial.
“Where we are in the world right now, if you know you don’t have a picture, you shouldn’t try to serve.
“He has an idea.
“Tinubu has supported so many people.
“Our industry for one.
“You don’t need to know him to get support.
:When we lost Moji Olaiya, and she wasn’t in the country, he flew her in, he paid for everything.
“So many actors have received help from him.
“And he doesn’t know them from anywhere.”
When asked about her colleague, Funke Akindele, who is Peoples Democratic Party deputy governorship candidate for Lagos State, Akintola said: “I think more and more people who feel they have a service to give to this country need to step up.
“Nigeria needs all the help.
“They should step up.”
She noted that she has currently been speaking up because of how other people try to downplay her choices.
Akintola added: “Normally, I don’t share my politics or what I believe on social media, but because of how people are attacking others, I said no, we won’t be bullied.
“Every Nigerian has the right to make a choice.
“My choice might be different from yours, but it doesn’t change the fact that we are both Nigerians.”
