Ini Edo Ex-Husband

Popular Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, has opened up on the factors that led to the collapse of her marriage to her ex-husband, Philip Ehiagwina.

The 40-year-old movie star (Ini Edo) opened up about her marriage in a recent interview with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Channels TV’s “Rubbing Minds” show.

The screen diva, who got married to Philip Ehiagwina in 2008 but got divorced six years later, stated that their marriage fell apart because of distance.

In her opinion, maybe the union would have worked if they were staying together because it would have allowed them to communicate and understand each other better.

The mother-of-one added that family interference also played a role in the breakdown of their marriage, as some members of her husband’s family opposed certain roles she played in films.

In her words,

“No matter the indifference or incompatibility, if you’re together in love, a lot of things can actually work out.

However, you don’t get to work things out when there is no contact. When you are with someone, and you can’t agree on certain things or find a common ground, I think being together could have actually helped us to understand each other better.

Most of the time, we attract the wrong people, sometimes for the wrong reasons. Because when people come to you because of what they see on TV, it’s hard for them to accept you considering the fact that you are just acting because that is your job.

When they find out that it’s not the real you, it becomes a problem. Marriage is an experi­ence that I don’t regret. My ex-husband met me as an actress. My job takes my time because naturally there are certain roles you are not allowed to play once you are married.

Even if your husband understands, his relatives might not understand. My ex-husband is the last child, so family interference in the marriage was normal.

“Marriage has taught me a lot of lessons, it made me wiser and stronger. I think it actually made me more mature. I don’t think I married too early, maybe I was a little bit in a hurry.”

“I’m Incredibly Sorry For How I Hurt You” – Actress Juliana Olayode Tenders Public Apology To Funke Akindele; She Reacts

Published

Funke Akindele Colleague

Popular Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayode, has issued a public apology to her senior colleague and movie producer, Funke Akindele.

Keep in mind that Juliana Olayode, who burst into the limelight with her role as Toyosi on Funke Akindele’s sitcom, Jenifa’s Diary, had a fallout with Funke in 2017 over an undisclosed topic.

Years later, Juliana expressed her deep regret in a lengthy Instagram post on Saturday night, apologizing to Funke and admitting that she had hurt her deeply. She also addressed the issues that led to her exit from the series.

“As a teenager, my career in the mainstream entertainment industry started in a place that many people who have put in years of hard work could only dream of. How could a neophyte start from the mainstream if not for a miracle?

In my case, the mercy of God and unmerited favor was evident. I broke into the industry by playing a friend and co-lead with a screen goddess who had put in decades of hard work and unprecedented creativity, even at that time.

God used Aunty Funke Akindele @funkejenifaakindele to put me into the limelight. It was a shocker for me, especially at that tender age when I had barely left secondary school. The kind of fame I earned from playing Toyosi in Jenifa’s Diary was too enormous for my understanding.

However, the lack of industry know-how started manifesting in me, coupled with the fact that I had a guardian (manager) who didn’t understand how the entertainment industry works, and I believed anything he felt and said.

My guardian sent an email to Scene One TV, the producers of the sitcom, the entire content of which I wasn’t aware of until recently.

The story of my goofs at the start of my career cannot be exhausted in a million words. I want to use this opportunity to apologize to Aunty Funke Akindele. Ọmọdé ò lè mọ ẹ̀kọ́ jẹ, kó má ra lọ́wọ́. I am incredibly sorry for how I hurt you and how the email that was sent hurt you.

Please forgive me for my childish mistakes of the past. I am deeply sorry for everything. 🙏🙏
I love you eternally, Aunty Funke.
❤️❤️

NB: I just feel the burden to make this official. It’s not an attempt for people to help me beg her. I have met Aunty Funke; she has forgiven me. She hugged me, prayed for me, cooked for me like she used to in those good old days. Jollof rice elemi meji, fried rice, and sweet chicken. (lol)
I am her baby forever. She is such a sweet soul. The good days are back, and you should probably anticipate. 🤐 I love you all. Thank you. 😍”, she wrote.

In response, Funke Akindele expressed her love for her in the comments section of Juliana’s post and noted that she misses her.

“My Juliana. ❤️

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ I miss you. I will bite you. 😂😂😂😂 Omo mi. I love you. See you soon.” Funke wrote.
