Nollywood actress Nuella Njubigbo and producer/director Tchidi Chikere are set to tie the knot this weekend in Anambra state.

This will be the second marriage for Chikere and first for Njubigbo.

The veteran movie producer was married to actress Sophia Chikere and they have 3 children together.

It was rumoured that the couple were dating before Chikere divorced his first wife. Rumour also has it that the actress moved into Chikere’s Ajah home last year.

A lot of controversies has surrounded the relationship, and to that the beautiful bride has issued a statement debunking some of the rumours.

Read what she wrote below:

Let me start by confirming some of the rumours you may have heard. Yes, the traditional marriage rites between Tchidi Chikere and I will be performed soon. This was not the way we imagined or planned it, but as they say, nobody has a crystal ball to tell where or who we end up with. Life is a dice.

At the time the rumours of his separation/divorce and me being involved was going on, I definitely was not in that space where some story writers said I was. I was busy doing other things with my life, other preoccupations, a relationship (I thought would lead to marriage), and my acting career. Things happened, my relationship packed up and we went our separate ways, I moved on.
Tchidi and I have always been friends (As I am with other colleagues), We trade in the same career, but we never crossed that line (we never dated), not to talk of me getting pregnant for him ( I’m presently not pregnant as still being written) sometimes It’s really tiring confirming or refuting some of these rumors.  I know some naysayers would still believe what they have made up their minds to believe and stick to; Truth is, I am not making this statement for those set of people, neither am I making it to get people on my side. This statement goes out to those who love me and truly care about me and the way I live my life, and to my very reliable and supportive fans who have been asking questions and deserve to know the truth.
In the past two years, Tchidi and I worked more, we got closer and more friendly, we were both single and I began to understand and see the real him. Needless to say that I also began to really, really like this real person I was getting to know more and more with every passing day. Then it happened, our hearts clicked. Well, maybe the flying rumours contributed to this and made me look more his way, or it could have been part of life we have no control over.
Suffice this to say, he proposed to me a while ago and after very careful thought and consideration on every side I said yes. Would I say no because of what people would say and damn where my heart led me? Just like Bill Cosby said, ‘the key to failure is trying to please everybody’. I chose not to take that route, instead follow my heart.
My heart is remarkably at peace with this decision, and I am willing to take this leap of faith which every married woman has taken. Where this love will lead me I cannot say, I am not God, but, I have hope, faith and believe that it will lead me to a good place. Every one of us in this life deserves a chance to be happy. I am taking my own chance.
This is the only statement I am making on this, any other one after this is not from me. I can’t help what people say or write, but please be careful about what you listen to or read and believe. For those who wish me the best, I wish the very best, for those who don’t, I leave you to God who sees and knows all things. Thanks for reading.

  1. Nuella Njubigbo, Sweetheart, a word of wisdom: please get a professional writer to write your stuff next time because what you have written is ridiculous and all over the place. You said “We trade in the same career”??? Seriously. Anyway, if you already used a professional writer or PR person for this, please fire them and get a real writer.

    And while you are perfecting your fashion and lipstick, pick up a book from time to time and read it cover to cover. There is nothing as unsexy as a dumb chic

  2. Sheila, spot on. nuella, I am not amazed that this caption came at this time because it was very well expected. I wish u good luck as you live with the man you have clearly snatched from his wife of his youth. And to you Tchidi , you are so irresponsible . I hope he makes a good 2nd wife for you and I bet there will be more women to trail her because it is obvious you do not understand the rudiments of marriage. Keep jumping from woman to woman. Heartless soul.
