From Kokolet to Diplomat’s Wife – Koko Mansion’s Chioma Akuezue reportedly marries Consul General of Germany in NigeriaPosted on Saturday, February 2nd, 2013 at 1:39 PM
You may remember Chioma Akuezue as the cute aspiring musician from D’banj‘s 2009 reality TV show “Koko Mansion“. When Chioma signed up for Koko Mansion, she shared her previous struggles yet emphasized her focus on her goals and values. According to her, many people had tried but failed to take advantage of her under the guise of helping her with her career, “I want to be a superstar, but not at the expense of my integrity”, she said.
Chioma made a good impression in the house but was evicted as she was deemed “too quiet” compared to the other contestants.
The ex-musician made the news this week as she was introduced as the wife of the head of mission for the Federal Republic of Germany Consulate in Lagos, Consul General Walter L. von den Driesch. This was during an official visit Ekiti State where the Consul General met with Governor Kayode Fayemi and other state officials in Ado Ekiti.
Many were surprised by the introduction as no news of their wedding had been announced prior to this time.
Other than a few red carpet appearances, Chioma has kept a low profile since she left the Koko Mansion house. She enrolled in a professional course with the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and worked as a Key Account Manager for Lufthansa in Nigeria. Walter von den Driesch is a career diplomat who has worked in various parts of the world.
Congrats to the couple!
