We began this interesting series in our last edition – celebrity marriages that didn’t go beyond 365 days! Here is the second part as well as the reasons for their failure as uncovered by YES INTERNATIONAL! Magazine…
UCHE OGBODO/ATO UBY – Theirs remains one of the wackiest marriages ever. Contracted specifically on October 5, 2013 in Enugu, the homestead of the bride, it lasted for only one month before crumbling. And so bitter was the actress then that she described it as the biggest mistake of her life! Norway-based Ato and Uche, before going their separate ways, had a baby boy.
REGINA ASKIA/CHARLES ORIE – Love has not been fair to Regina Askia, ex-beauty queen, actress and nurse, we must confess. Before her last marriage to Ruddy Williams, which has since collapsed, her earlier marriage to Otokoto millionaire, Chief Charles Orie, equally didn’t last. The marriage consummated amidst controversies in 1999 lasted barely one year before crashing. As a matter of fact, tales were all over town then that all Charles wanted was to ‘eat’ her and move on. Which he ultimately did.
STELLA DAMASUS/EMEKA NZERIBE – How many of us still remember that pretty actress, Stella Damasus re-married not-too-long after her first marriage ended abruptly, following the demise of her beau, Jaiye Aboderin? Well, she did. Only that it was for 8 months. Stella became one with Emeka Nzeribe, from Oguta, Imo State, on March 6, 2009. But they could only sustain it for months before deleting themselves from the marriage register.
SHAN GEORGE/TONY NWOSISI – Shan and Tony, from Delta State, met and fell in love in London. And thereafter marriage followed. But unfortunately, this was only for a year. Shan, married before and blessed with two grown up boys now, had journeyed from Nigeria to London to celebrate their first anniversary. But as fate would have it, she met another woman in the house on arrival and that was how it all ended.
CHIEGE ALISIGWE/TONY EBBE – Sometimes in 2007, actress Chiege Alisigwe met and married a police officer that goes by the name of Tony Ebbe. But genuine peace so much eluded them that only 3 months after, they walked out on each other. Wahala from the man’s wife and extended family members, coupled with irreconcilable differences, were blamed for their parting ways then.
