Nuella Speaks on Her Marriage to Nollywood Director, Tchidi Chikere

Nuella Speaks on Her Marriage to Nollywood Director, Tchidi Chikere

The news of Nollywood director; Tchidi Chikere and actress Nuella Njubigbo raised a lot of dust in the air and had many tongues wagging.
Tchidi’s ex-wife and mother of his 4 boys, Sophia Chikere bared her heart on how she felt and the Nuella’s involvement in the breaking of her marriage. Read it Here if you missed it.

Tchidi on the other hand who couldn’t take in more of the blame levelled against him for allegedly chasing away his former wife, Sophia to marry Nuella fired back by producing pictures of his ex-wife with alleged boyfriend with series of accusations. Read it Here if you missed it.

What we have not talked about is Nuella’s reaction to all these accusations.
Well, she has spoken through her publicist. Read it after the cut…

In a statement by her publicist, Big Sam Media, the actress declared that by marrying Tchidi Chikere, she was following her heart.
She said: “Let me start by confirming some of the rumours you may have heard. This was not the way we imagined or planned it, but as they say, nobody has a crystal ball to tell where or who we end up with. Life is a dice.

“At the time the rumour of (the) separation/divorce was (spreading), I definitely was not in that space where some story writers said I was. I was busy doing other things with my life; other preoccupations, a relationship (I thought would lead to marriage), and my acting career. Things happened; my relationship packed up and we went our separate ways. I moved on.

 “Tchidi and I have always been friends (as I am with other colleagues). We trade in the same career, but we never crossed that line (we never dated), not to talk of me getting pregnant for him (I’m presently not pregnant as still being written). Sometimes it’s really tiring confirming or refuting some of these rumours. I know some naysayers would still believe what they have made up their minds to believe and stick to.

Truth is, I am not making this statement for those set of people; neither am I making it to get people on my side. This statement goes out to those who love me and truly care about me and the way I live my life, and to my very reliable and supportive fans who have been asking questions and deserve to know the truth.

“In the past two years, Tchidi and I worked more, we got closer and more friendly, we were both single and I began to understand and see the real him. Needless to say that I also began to really, really like this real person I was getting to know more and more every passing day. Then it happened: our hearts clicked. Well, maybe the flying rumours contributed to this and made me look more his way, or it could have been part of life we have no control over.

“Suffice this to say, he proposed to me a while ago and after very careful thought and consideration on every side, I said yes. Would I say no because of what people would say and damn where my heart led me? Just like Bill Cosby said, ‘the key to failure is trying to please everybody’. I chose not to take that route; instead, (I choose to) follow my heart.

“My heart is remarkably at peace with this decision, and I am willing to take this leap of faith which every married woman has taken. Where this love will lead me I cannot say; I am not God. But I have hope, faith and believe that it will lead me to a good place.”
