ChaCha Eke Talks about her marriage

What was that special thing he did that made you fall for him?

 In 2010 he became a movie director and his first movie was Bank Job. Honestly, I was not casted for any role in the movie but as production progressed, two female members of the cast failed to make it. As a friend and a mentor who had always believed in me, he gave me the slot. It was my first official lead role and most challenging too.

Are you not afraid of getting married to someone who is in the same industry as you are especially against the backdrop of promiscuity and immorality in Nollywood?

Getting married to a man who works in the same field and career as myself is such a relief and a blessing. Actresses are misread and misjudged a lot. Most times, it’s only we in the industry that understand one another. And my husband has known me from scratch and watched me grow and seen me in my entirety; nothing about me is strange to him. I have also seen him at his best and average moments too.

How did you guys meet each other?

I met my husband in 2009 while on set shooting a movie entitled, When Kings Decide; it was an Amaco production. Then he was a movie editor and had come to pick up tapes of already shot scenes. That was our first meeting.

What attracted you to him that first time?

His extreme intelligence and gentle nature endeared me to him.

What was that special thing he did that made you fall for him?

My husband has never gotten married before. Ours is the first for both of us.

How many kids do you guys plan to have?

We’ll have kids as they come. Numbering them is not something i should concern myself with

What is your idea of a successful marriage?

A successful marriage is one that flourishes from season to season through the rains and the storms. Divinely blissful is what my marriage will be.
