Winifred leads a quiet life and is dedicated to her involvement with the church. It was not until she met and tied the knot with actor Blossom Chukwujekwu that she received a lot of attention from individuals outside the church community. Although she has made efforts to break into the movie industry, she is still on the path to prominence, as she has landed only a few supporting roles. Here are interesting facts about her.

Winifred Akhuemokhan’s Age Raised Eye Brows Among The Public
Information about Winifred’s exact age has remained a debated issue on the internet. News about their union was met with mixed reactions, especially derogatory reservations about her age.

Blossom’s ex Maureen Esisi herself, joined the trolls in this demeaning act.
She had made a post suggesting that blossom had made a huge mistake and had left something superior for another that was inferior. As the frenzy was on, the couple never officially gave any response to the trolls; if we all have learned anything from the internet, it is that acknowledging such slanders will only fuel it.
A classmate and supporter of Winifred’s, who has been identified as Sally Suleman, took it upon herself to respond to the trolls. Taking to her social media handle, she vouched that Winifred was only in her mid 30’s. She also said that her body stature shouldn’t be made fun of, stressing that the key to a successful marriage has nothing to do with the physique of the two parties involved.
Also taking a swipe at Blossom’s ex Maureen Esisi, Sally added that it is better to marry an ‘Ehinome’ than a woman who ‘twerks on Instagram’.

However, none of these have been verified, as Winifred herself has neither debunked nor affirmed anything.
