Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda has given marriage another chance, twelve years after her first marriage to Dejo Richards crashed. The 41-year-old actress and mother of one was joined to her heartthrob, Victor Coker the traditional way on Saturday February 20, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital.
The occasion which held at the bride’s family house was graced by many Nollywood stars. Some of them in attendance were: Liz Benson, Oge Okoye, Ebube Nwagbo, Segun Arinze, Ibinabo Fiberesima, Lancelot Imasuen, Daniella Okeke,, Ezinne Chinkata, etc.
Victor Coker hails from the Niger Delta region of the country. The white wedding is scheduled to take place in Greece sometime in May.
The actress had last year expressed during an interview her willing to give marriage another try. She also admitted that it hasn’t been easy being a single mother. According to her;
“Motherhood has been very lovely but being a single mother has been very challenging. There is a huge difference between being a mother and being a single mom. When you are a single mom, you have to do everything yourself, you have to be the mother, father, driver, teacher, name it.
“If you don’t have a help, you have to switch on the generator, drop and pick the child from school; it is crazy. You have to help her with her homework and if I have to travel, I would have to bribe my secretary to stay in my house for some nights so that she can help my daughter with her homework.
“I would love to remarry. In fact, I’m designed to be under a man. I’m not going to lie that I like this single mother nomenclature. But whereby there is no one at the moment, one is bound to get used to the situation. It’s not a do-or-die affair because I have been there before. Anything I’m going to do now, it has to be done right.”
Congratulations to them…
