In a recent interview, Nollywood actor Pete Edochie confirmed the marriage breakup of his junior colleague, Chioma Chukwuka Akpota.
The rumors about Chioma’s marriage being in trouble circulated in 2022, and while she didn’t confirm or deny the reports at the time, her social media posts hinted at a possible separation from her husband.
Expressing his dismay at the increasing rate of divorce in the Nollywood industry, Pete Edochie emphasized the importance of understanding that marriage is a commitment for better or worse.
He mentioned that he was shocked to hear about Chioma Chukwuka’s broken marriage, along with other actresses like Ireti Doyle and Tonto Dikeh, who have also experienced marital challenges.
Pete Edochie pointed out that many young actresses who got married in recent years have left their husbands, and he encouraged people to honor their vows and understand that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
He believes that some people make the mistake of seeking a better situation without fully committing to working through difficulties in their marriages.
Regarding his on-screen daughters, Pete Edochie expressed a special fondness for Genevieve Nnaji, describing her as exceptionally brilliant. He views Genevieve as a daughter and feels a fatherly affection towards her.
However, he also expressed concern about recent reports of Genevieve facing mental challenges and hopes that she will be okay.
