“Truthfully I had categorized all men as the same useless idiots…I feel differently now” Monalisa Chinda on Finding Love Again in Genevieve Magazine’s May 2016 Issue




The May 2016 Issue of Genevieve Magazine is out and the cover star is the gorgeous Monalisa Chinda.

The Nollywood actress who got married again recently opened up on finding new love after she had almost given up. She shares her emotional journey to finding love again in the arms of her childhood love Victor Tonye Coker after her very public divorce.

She says “Truthfully I had categorised all men as the same useless idiots (pardon my French). I am happy that I feel differently now. Marriage is always a better option for any woman who is single in this country. Forget 30, once you attain 35 and counting, men in this country call you a dead engine.”

The May issue also examines the deciding factor for 3 women from 3 generations in knowing that their husbands were indeed THE ONE.

“The day I trended for all the wrong reasons was a turning point for me” soulful singer Waje reveals and AMVCA best actress, Adesua Etomi talks about her time in the dark tunnel.

STYLETITUDE wears a new look this issue as the jury give unbiased opinions on trending red carpet fashion.

    Congratulations Monalisa. But for you to categorise all men as useless idiots al because of ONE sour experience is a bit befuddling to me. That’s a very huge and unfair statement to lots of good men out there. You weren’t perfect in that marriage and i don’t think your ex would categorise ALL women as useless idiots cos of your imperfections.
    Some of these entertainment folks need serious tutoring on how to answer interview questions.
    By the way, your TV show needs a better producer. I watched you interview Charles Novia sometime ago and i almost wept for you. You’re a terrible interviewer Monalisa.
    All the best in your home by the way. I geniunely wish you the very best in it.

    I was once there where I categorized all men as the same. But truthfully I know and have met better now, and I always encourage friends going through the same to equate it to JUST THAT man and not all men. To all my sisters out there thinking this way, don’t give up! God just removed a tilapia fish in your life to give you a beautiful dolphin! One that would treat you like the queen you are 🙂

Am just sick and tired of nigerian ladies making this unfair generalisations! All men are “IDIOTS”? Really? Including her father shey? Omotola, omoni oboli, chioma, mercy johnson, nse ikpiti…are all ladies wit sucessful careers married 2nigerian men! When u choose a wrong partner for flimsy reasons or mistakenly fall into d hands of an idiot. Honey forgive urself and move on. Dont go spreading hate! Well for those girls wu claim not 2 want to marry bcos of d fear of nigerian men, here is a message from one of ur mentors.

      Me I af tire for all this our ladies. Relationship is a dual thing. Why always single out the guy for faults in a relationship as if you’re perfect (well they like to believe that though).

      You date a teebillz-esque kind of guy. He breaks your heart. Then all men are useless pigs. Have you dated all men to know they are all useless. There are also countless guys that have dated women and had their hearts broken by them too. They don;t go about spreading hate messages on the opposite gender.

      But seriously i feel its too early to make statements like this. Now looku looku people will be watching and waiting. Why don’t yall ever learn to be mum about your love life. I get the fact that some ladies wanna brag about their man, but always consider the consequences.

      #justmyopinionthough. 🙂 —- eyin feminist voltrons if you wanna criticize don’t go be isulting me cause i don’t share your opinion.

    I wish you well Monalisa. I’m not trying to be pessimistic, but isn’t it rather too early to start singing this love song, at least publicly? Shouldn’t you just wait a lil bit for your marriage to survive the first 1 year or so before you start singing them love songs in public? Shaa, I don’t want to hear stories that touch in a few months or a few years time oo. I wish you love, joy and happiness, pretty woman.

    @Nkechi, please add ‘looking for one with touch light under the scorching sun’ Na only Baba God who neither sleeps nor slumber fit find you proper person. In my own generation, marriage was such a serious issue that you had to seek the face of God in order to get your own specific match. Even if he is a Christian, they told us that it does not mean that both of you were matched by God. God Himself must show you yours. Accuracy in the Spirit was so serious that you had to know the fact that God sent Aaron with Moses to Pharaoh not Mariam though Mariam also belonged to the clan of Israel and was Moses’ older sister who called a nanny ( Moses’ mother) for Pharaoh’s daughter. I was doing London girl at first and thought that was just archaic. After some stupid London boys dealt with me. I humbled myself before God and went to fast and pray. Now, when women talk about marital problems, it sounds wierd to me. In fact, I keep quiet on purpose for fear of them not thinking that I don’t care or even jealousy from them. But I have decided to speak out. Why? If someone is looking for what you have, show them the way.My own way is accuracy in the Spirit
    Why? Because being a Christian entails accuracy, this is for someone who is wondering why that marriage is not working even though they know God. Please my dear, go and do a research on the Holy Spirit as though you expect an award on the professorial level.
