This aspect of his life was captured in chapter nine of the book titled ‘Marital Challenges and Imperfection’. Among others, he gave a narrative about how his conversations with some women led to the incidents.
“You could say I was naive from the start about subtle amorous hints and perhaps made a lot of assumptions about people’s motives till it was too late. Soon, I got bolder, more daring, and adventurous, and sometimes I initiated flirtatious conversations and led many on.
“I have been in very compromising situations with ladies. Some started as admiration and fun and after frequent chats, developed into flirting and occasionally went too far,” he stated on page 115 of the book as sighted by GhanaWeb.
“Yes, I have cheated on my wife before in the various forms that cheating could be defined as, both emotionally and physically,” he added.
Describing his action as “inappropriate behavior”, the actor apologized to his wife and “every lady I have been on that path with”, disclosing that “I’ve struggled to forgive myself and these experiences have been the lowest points in our marriage and nearly tore us apart”.

He wrote: “I’m grateful for God and Elom’s forgiveness and the love that has kept us going strong through those dark times.”
