‘I Was Surprised About Chioma Chukwuka’s Marriage Crash’ – Pete Edochie Laments The Rate At Which Actresses Get Divorced

Veteran actor, Pete Edochie has expressed concerns over the at which women in the movie industry leave their husbands.

In an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, the Nollywood legend said he was shocked when he learnt that his fellow actor, Chioma Chukwuka had parted ways with her husband.

Although there had been speculations that Chioma’s marriage to her husband Franklyn Akpotha, whom she married in 2016, has ended, these rumors were never substantiated.

Chioma herself has neither confirmed nor denied the marriage breakup rumors. She also did a good job at keeping her husband and children from the public, so the divorce rumours remained mere speculations.

However, her senior colleague in the industry appears to have confirmed the rumours now. Pete, during the recent chat said he was shocked to receive news about Chioma’s divorce and those of other actresses in the industry.

He also expressed concern over the rising number of divorce cases within the Nollywood movie industry, particularly among actresses. He further emphasized that marriage is meant to be for better or worse.

In his words,

“If you come to our Industry today, most of our ladies who got married 2- 3 years ago have all left their husbands, I was shocked that Chioma Chukwuka had left her husband, Ireti Doyle, Tonto Dikeh.

You take a vow when you are going to get married for better or worst, not for better or out. You will always think it’s greener on the other side, that is the mistake we all make.”

I have not heard of her lately ever since I heard she is a little disturbed mentally, I don’t know whether it is true or false, I hope that one day she calls me and says I am ok.”
