Attending various red carpet events in Lagos, one is bound to come across Nollywood actor, Yemi Blaq, who is a very approachable fellow with smiles to complement his cuteness.

Having able to stay scandal free as an entertainer, the actor unlike some entertainers, has always kept his family away from public glare and to him; it is a deliberate attempt because he is not cool with the idea of exposing them.

In a recent interview with Punch, the actor stated that his family detests being in public view especially his wife who is a writer, noting that he is a very private person.

In his words, “The funny thing is that my family is not in the public but my family's tale is in the public. You cannot see pictures or actual events about my family on the internet but things pop up about my work. I keep my family away from the public eye because they do not like it. My wife is a writer but she does not like to be in the public glare. It is inevitable to have mentions of my family on the internet but I would never put my family in the spotlight. I am an extremely private person and that is why I would not let my family be in the public glare.”
