After Months of Denials…Nuella Njubigbo & Tchidi Chikere confirm Wedding Plans



Nuella & Tchidi - March 2014 - BellaNaija 01

It’s been over a year since rumours about their relationship surfaced and finally Nollywood actress Nuella Njubigbo and Nollywood producer/director Tchidi Chikere have confirmed that they are getting married.

The ceremony will take place in Anambra state this weekend. Nuella confirmed the news via her rep.

Read her story;
“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.”

It’s really great that Nuella took the time out to clarify the situation. So many rumours have floated around over the last few months. Good to hear her side of the story.

    Lool at “we trade in the same career”. Such Igbo behaviour. Local much. This lenghty speech is funny tbh. Its like she’s trying to convince us of why she’s getting married or sumn, and we don’t care. I didn’t even know about her and Tchidi or the scandal around them until I read this. Na them sabi

      Really? Its “local” because she said “trade”? When exactly did “foreign” become better? Class up, please. This is well written by someone who wants to get the real story out there, and no one can please everyone.

    Human beings, don’t you guys have things that occupy your times, are you all so idle all you do is butt into peoples busines, sit and criticize, judge and taint people’s characters? Galli! You all go find important things to do with and for yourselves and your families and stop being stupid, ignorant and annoying. Let God take care of His children, and let who is without sin cast all the stones they wish to. Let people live their lives, stop all these judgements and think of ideas to make Nigeria a better place for residency, investments and growth to compete with developing countries. Ewwww…you all should stop all these hating, backbiting, shallow ways of thinking and build each other up. Empathise, uplift, pray, pray, pray with pure hearts. Grow up people.

  24. Mary Cole

    March 28, 2014 at 6:24 am

    All you idle people, who think your jobs are to sit in judgement of others, let me give you assignments that will keep you occupied for a loooong time. Start a prayer and fasting period, for God to provide Nigeria with leaders with integrity. God-fearing human beings who will lead as democracy demands:government of the people, by the people, for the people. Non greedy leaders who will instead of stealing money away from the country, to other established countries, will have the decency to invest them in the country, build companies and put citizens to work. Make sure electricity is constant, instead of generators polluting the country, poisoning and shortening peoples lives. Ammassing wealth just for themselves, acquiring jets for no good reasons at all, even women who are supposed to be nurturers are caught in the web of greed. They all go to other countries to show off with the country’s money. People, there’s a lot of prayers items to keep you all busy, instead of tearing people down. Get yourselves occupied/busy doing worthwhile purposes. Pleeease people, get busy praying…With clean hearts. God help us all. God says, judge not that ye might no be judged, pray ye one for another.

    Nuella keep your explanation to yourself, you are not better than Sophia his first wife. Why can’t you go out there and get your own man? Ichidi is second hand product, I pity u. A man that already had 3 boys from his wife. Shame on u Nuella. He will definitely cheat on u with another woman. Home breaker.

    @ mary cole, i can see you are really busy indeed, let me also give you something to keep you busy, pray! PRAY AND FAST that you don’t end up being Sophia. @ nuela, God see’s the heart of men, he can not be deceived, if all you have said is true, he will definitely bless your union, you don’t need to convince anyone. Finally, To all the home breakers, may God punish you abundantly. may you find your suitable place in HELL. to all the men that abandon their families for a whore just because you have allowed your manhood to do the job of your brain, you have placed a curse in your generation, you are not better than a goat. if he cheats with you, he will cheat on you. karma is a bitch,it will always find you. what God has joined together, let NO MAN or WOMAN put asunder.

    Wateva man sows he reaps. In oda wrds, wateva U want 2 do, ask urself is it in d line of God’s word (holy bible). To marry anoda woman husband is absord. He divorced his actress wife nw getting marry to anoda actress. Haaba! Have U askd urself dis question? wat made him to divorce his first actress wife if care is nt taken same will happen again. Be careful so that U no go join d leaque f divorcees. Beautiful lady like come down and God will surely giv U ur own husband. In every area it is nt right in d sight of God n man. Where a d first wife is nw, she go

    Ladies be so desperate to marry, they don’t ask questions. How can Nuella accept to marry a man that left his wife with 3 kids just like that? This is the problem with most women, they think they are special and different that what goes around cannot come back to them, if he could do it to another woman, he will definitely do it to u. It’s a matter of time, Marriage is not relationship, it’s a different ball game all together.

    Reading all the comments here just makes me laugh…advisers and hooters alike. Can’t we just be happy for them, than to start raining Fire & Brimstone on the poor couple that just want to share their good news. When a man divorces his wife they have both become single people and can seek happiness elsewhere. Its obvious Nuella knew people will start to assume imediately she announced the wedding, so decided to clear up some questions we might have. I wish the couple a happy married life..afterall you can’t please everyone.

    It must be true that there are no more husbands in Naija. I still do not understand how a young , educated , lady would settle for a second wife.
    Men like Tchidi marry down because young girls, who have a lot going for them will not marry him.Even if his wife left, he has three boys and they are not going anywhere.Does Nuella realize that?
    The first wife gave him these boys and as long as they are alive, by Igbo culture, she will continue to be a member of that family whether TCHIDI likes it or not.That is, If he paid her bride price.
    With all the headaches that happen in a polygamous home, why would Nuela settle for this. Well, I guess some people hate peace.

    All the ladies supporting nuella just pray another woman doesn’t come into your matrimonial home to steal both your husband, home and happiness.
