If there is anything like the four musketeers in Nollywood, it would be Oge Okoye, Ini Edo, Ebube Nwagbo and Rukky Sanda. These gorgeous actresses are best of friends and are usually seen everywhere together. That was before two out of the pact had a big fight.
Estranged best friends, Oge Okoye and Ini Edo were not in talking terms for four years, however, they have resolved their differences and are back together, this time closer than ever. The movie stars, who were once at war, have not only sheath their swords and resumed their friendly outings again, they did so with much maturity.
Their rift started in 2008, after Ini Edo got married to her ex-husband, Philip Ehiagwina. Oge and Ini were so close back then and she was the only actress who flew to the states to attend Ini’s white wedding. But after the wedding, it was reported that the two best friends parted ways.
The rift allegedly started when Ini accused Oge Okoye of the devil behind some of her private issues which found its way into the press. It was also reported that Ini Edo was the reason Oge Okoye lost the Globacom Ambassador endorsement deal, which is reputed to have fetched over thirty million naira each for the actresses.
The two actresses even went physical at a location in Festac. According to a source, the fight started after Ini allegedly accused Oge of “eyeing” her husband. Ini Edo tore Oge’s cloth, rendering her half-naked. In the midst of it all, none of the parties reacted to the press about what was going on between them, but it was obvious as they were no longer seen together in events or gathering.
Their four-lady group reduced to three, as either one of the actresses in enmity was usually missing in group outings.
All these went on till they reconciled in November 2015, when Ini Edo was spotted at Oge Okoye’s birthday party, which held in a yatch in Lagos. Ini Edo also played a key role of praying for the celebrant as a spiritual way to bond their newly-rekindled friendship.
Just last month, Ini celebrated her 34th birthday and Oge sent out a birthday message that read “Happy birthday my day 1 paddy. You are still as charming, talented, genuine and kind as the day I met you. Today is your day my love, may beauty and happiness surround you always.”
Recently, the duo made a trip to Warri for an event alongside Ebube Nwagbo. It is also alleged that the curvy actress and ex-girlfriend of KC Limpopo, was responsible for the reconciliation. It is not surprising though, that “a man” was mentioned as part of the causes of this long-term enmity. As long as men exists, ladies will always have something to fight about. We hope this friendship is back for good!
