Q: How did you guys meet each other?

Charity Eke: 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.

Q: What attracted you to him that first time?

ChaCha Eke: His extreme intelligence and gentle nature endeared me to him.

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

ChaCha Eke: 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.

ChaCha Eke: 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.

Q: What are you going to miss about life as a single lady?

Charity Eke: There is absolutely nothing I will miss as a single lady because for me, life just got better and more fulfilling.

Q: If you later discover that your husband is married to another woman, how would you react?

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

Q: Marriages in Nollywood  hardly last. How are you going to safeguard yours?

ChaCha Eke: We have made God the Head of our home. My hubby and I are best of friends and our love for each other is unquestionable. A marriage dedicated to God can never crash.

Q: How many kids do you guys plan to have?

ChaCha Eke: We’ll have kids as they come. Numbering them is irrelevant.

Q: What could make you walk out of marriage?

ChaCha Eke: We do not anticipate a walk-out. We believe in happy-ever-after and till death do us part.

Charity Eke: 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.

Q: Before meeting your husband, what was your disposition towards dating or marrying someone in the movie industry?

ChaCha Eke:Truthfully, before I met him, I didn’t think I could marry an entertainer like me. But my brother, destiny happened and brought us together.
