Unveiling Nollywood Actresses’ Marriages

Published

on

It is not a new thing for a
woman to remarry. In fact, it happens everywhere . According to a recent post in the social media via Naij.com, these top Nollywood actresses are well known celebrities and super-Stars and the whole saga that surrounded them at the time of the said marriages were controversial.
Below are the list of top 5 Nollywood actresses who married other women’s husbands.
FUNKE AKINDELE
Popularly called ‘Jenifa’, the 39-year Old Ikorodu-born funny actress’s marriage to Mr Kehinde Oloyede can be said to be one of the shortest marriages in the history of Nollywood. Everyone, aside the actress knew the marriage was bound to end before it even started. A superstar in the Nigerian movie industry and a University of Lagos graduate, walking down the aisle with a man who already has about six children from three women?
Talking about how the union went awry, the ever funny actress said: “I was abused emotionally and verbally. Really, I felt we could work things out when the trouble started two months after the marriage, but I made up my mind and shut the door of the marriage at him when the trouble was coming to me too much. I stooped to conquer him, buried my fame and name to make him my husband, but it did not work.
Funke Akindele is however now back and better and we love that the girl power in her has continuously made her project ahead in her career.
INI EDO
Sultry actress Ini Edo got blogs buzzing when news came out that she was getting married in 2008 to her American-based hubby, Philips Ehiagwina. A yeat earlier, a woman Ruth, who was said to be Philips’ wife (as at that time) allegedly wrote an open letter to the actress, warning her to Streer clear of her husband. She also went further to reveal  how promiscuous her husband was, so she won’t end up being dejected and disappointed.
But the actress dismissed all these, discrediting the media for misrepresentation of facts. She got married to Mr Philips and the issue went from sweet to bitter in six years. Her family was said to have returned the bride price over irreconcilable differences. The beautiful actress who owns a massive N70 million mansion in Lekki is however doing well for herself and has put all her former marriage troubles behind her.
MERCY JOHNSON
In 2011, one Mrs Lovely Okojie sent out an open letter to Mercy Johnson to please release her husband and find a single man to marry. According to the woman, the man in question is the father of her two children and he was still legally married to her at the time. In her letter to Mercy Johnson she wrote thus: “My name is lovely Okojie, legal wife of Prince Odianosen Okojie, the man Mercy Johnson is set to wed in a few weeks. I was referred to you yo help me share my story after all else had failed to stop another woman from breaking my home. I used to have a sweet home, but now Mercy Johnson is trying to destroy it. I’ve not been able to stop crying or sleep well for the past few months.
“I’m appealing to the world and whoever knows her to please tell her to leave my husband alone. I’m married to this man and there has never been any divorce paper signed. We are still legally married, he’s the love of my life and the father of my two lovely kids. We got married back in 2006 in Regio-Emilia, Italy, attached are pictures of the wedding. At the moment, he’s busy in Nigeria planning to wed Mercy Johnson, abandoning me and our children fellow women is this fair? So with all the single guys out there, Mercy could not find her self one. How can a woman not care that she’s destroying the home of another woman, all in the name of getting married desperately. I’m in terrible pains. What do I tell my children?.
All these did not stop the wedding from taking place. Although it caused a bit of delay, the two lovebirds exchanged their vows at a Chris Embassy Church, Oregun, Lagos on Saturday, August 27, 2011, amidst tight security. They are still together, waxing stronger and have been blessed with kids.
NUELLA UJUBIGBO
Not many Nigerians knew Nuella until news went around that she broke her colleague’s home. The fast rising actress was however quick at discrediting the news that she was sleeping with ace Nollywood producer, Tchidi, Tchekere, Tchidi was married with 3 kids to Sophia Tchekere, another beautiful actress. The Oga producer later ended his six years marriage to Sophia and moved in with Nuella at a new apartment in Ajah. They have been blessed with a baby and they are still very much together.
STELLA DAMASUS-ABODERIN
This particular actress is on the list because of the kind of bad publicity she generates when it comes to men. Reports went viral that the beautiful actress and mother was harbouring another actress, Doris Simeon’s husband, Daniel Ademinokan, but she debunked it, calling it an absurd and senseless report.
Fast forward to few months or years later, the love birds are on our social media, professing love for each other, with the poor Doris Simeon living her life as it comes. Life has been shattered, Doris Simeon and Daniel Ademinokan had a kid, while Stella has three girls from her first husband.

Published

on

The Paramount ruler of Emohua kingdom in Rivers State,  Ohna (Sir) Sergent Awuse, has called for peaceful celebrations of christmas and new year, as he enjoined the youths to be law abiding and shun violence during the festive period.
The first class traditional ruler made the call last Saturday, while preforming the Ohna Emohua burial rights in respect of late Ohna (Hon) Emmanuel A. Obinna at Mgbuitanwo in Emohua community,  amidst jubilation for a life well lived.
Ohna Awuse, the Olo IV, Nneweli Emohua XIII urged the people of the community to always uphold and showcase the age long culture and tradition of Emohua Clan. He stressed that their culture is their identity and way of life and a community without culture and tradition is like a sheep without Shepherd.
The monarch noted that late Ohna Emmanuel Obinna would be remembered for his role in promoting the ancient culture and tradition of Emohua. He stated that his demise had left a big vaccum in Emohua kingdom, but the legacies he left behind would live after him.
In his vote of thanks,  his successor and acting head of Mgbu Owhor community in Emohua, Chief V.C. Obinna, thanked the Ohna supreme council for the honour they gave to their departed colleague by giving him a befeating burial in line with the culture and tradition of Ohna Emohua, the highest traditional institution in Emohua kingdom. Which the late traditional ruler championed in his life time on earth.
Chief V.C Obinna maintained that apart from being a foremost traditionalist, he was also a devout Christian who contributed immensely to the growth of the Christian faith in Emohua community and beyond.
Also speaking at the well attended event,  the chief mourner, Dr Weli Obinna reiterated that his late father lived an upright life, those he left behind would take solace in God because their father and mentor lived a fulfilled life he came, he saw and he conquered to the glory of God and left the scene at the ripe age of 92.

Rivers Set For Yuletide Celebration Despite Odds

Published

on

As this year’s Christmas and New year celebrations beckon, The Tide investigations have revealed that most of the residents of Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital and its environs are not enthusiastic about the Christmas and new year celebrations. Most of the people interviewed expressed the feelings of solemn and gloomy festive period due to the prevailing economic hardship in the country.
One of the respondents, Mr. Solomon Duru,  a civil servant resident at the D-Line axis of the city, complained of the rising cost of staple foods in the market, such as rice, beans, tomato, yam etc. which were sold at exubitant prices and  had made it extremely difficult to provide two square meals for his family of five, “It is life first before celebration,” he said.
Another respondent who sells garri at Mile One Market, Diobu , Port Harcourt,  Madam Dorathy Duke maintained that garri which used to be the poor man’s food has become the rich man’s food. According to her, a basin of garri that was sold for #3000.00 is now sold for between #7000.00 and #8000.00, while five cups of garri that used to be sold for #200.00 now cost #500.00.
“Even at the prevailing price today, garri has become a scarce commodity even when you succeed in getting it, there are no buyers , there is trouble in the country,  Nigeria has now become Ghana of those days when they ran to Nigeria to take refuge due to their poor economy , but today the reverse is the case, may God help us”,  she said.
A transporter in Abali Park, Mile1, Mr. Sunday Udo, lamented the lack of patronage due to the hike  in transport fares as a result of the unprecendented rise in petrol and other petrolum products. He stressed that even vulcanizers and mechanics are in trouble as patronage from car owners decrease every day due to poor economy.
It was the same woefull story when The Tide visited a supermarket attendant along Aba/ Port Harcourt Express Road who pleaded anonymity. He disclosed that it was no longer business as usuall as most of their customers had disappeared due to the increase in the price of goods. “We record poor sales daily to the extent that the management has decided to reduce the workforce, my brother, it is double wahala for dead body” according to Fela”,  he said.
However,  a mass communication student of the Rivers State University Port Harcourt,  Mr. Abel Dike, noted that Nigerians were used to suffering and smiling, so this year’s Christmas and New Year celebrations would come and go,  this year would not be different despite the sufferings. People would still enjoy themselves even with their last kobo.
“People will still go to catch fun with their loved ones at their favourite relaxation joints,  hangouts, cinemas, amusement parks and night clubs. Residential houses, churches and public places will also wear new looks with Christmas trees, lights and other decorations,  even communities are ready to mark their annual carnivals,  beach parties, cultural and masquerade dances as well as wrestling competitions   and other social activities to mark the festive period,  so I believe all is not lost despite the bad economy,” he said.
Meanwhile,  Pastor Silas Wosa of St. Pauls Anglican Church Diobu noted that Christian faithfulls all over the world would celebrate the Christmas. “Christmas is the biggest celebration and holiday every year,  because it celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of God who came to the world to redeem mankind” he stressed.
