A few years after their divorce Nigerian movie director Jeta Amata and his Ex-wife actress Mbong Amata are working on a new movie together.

The actress took to her Instagram page to share a photo of them on set and captioned it:

Our beliefs made us ‘good’ people to each other but our behavior towards each other took it to a whole other level!

      It is possible if the relationship was based on something other than sex. If they were friends before or after they started having sex, then it is possible. It’s also possible of they just like each other as individuals

      I think it depends on the type of friendship the two developed, how deeply in love they were and how amicably they broke up. Of course, there must be something that h led to the breakup. I believe, when It’s NOT from a bitter place such as cheating, deeply breaking one’s heart, DV situation it’s possible. Sometimes, it can be as simple as they are better friends than deep lovers. There are a lot of convenient , managing marriages/partnerships where one can easily let go.

      I’m not sure if I can do it on a marriage level because thats a different type of emotional commitment.. However, I’ve done it on a relationship level. I’m still friend with my ex, we don’t hang out but we definitely talk once in a while. And he worked on a project(both of our passion, we talked) that he wanted me to be part of, he gave me a call and I was glad to be part of it. We kept it professional.

      Maybe it’s because he was more in love than I was and I was the one who broke off the relationship. My heart was very intact, and I’m in a better, more compatible relationship. Let me be petty a little bit, I feel good that I left intact and he’s the one that still wants me.

      It is possible. It depends on the level of friendship, how deep the love was and how amicably/mutual the breakup was. If there was no serious bitterness such as cheating, adultery and DV, you guys can easily go back to being friends. Sometimes, you guys are better as friends than deep lovers. You find out early or later on in life. I’m still friend with my ex, I don’t know if I can do it on a marriage level though, that’s more complex and too emotional. I broke it off with my heart still intact, no broken heart here. My ex had a project he was working on and he called me up and asked if I wanted to be part of it. I said sure. We worked together and kept it professional. We still talk once in a while. Just being petty, it feels good too when you know, he still admires and wants you. However, you are in a better relationship and there’s no animosity. Seeing you naked and your ecstasy face is funny. If there’s respect there, it shouldn’t be any problem at all.

    All relationships have purpose – the timing however is determined by the teacher, our role is to pay attention, listen and obey right away , get the lessons and go on to fulfil purpose thereby inspiring others to do the same, Good for them, they are fulfilling purpose.
