Two decades after her husband’s demise, Nollywood actress Regina Chukwu has publicly declared that she is ready to start dating again and is in need of applicants who won’t stress her.
On her Instagram page, Regina made the public announcement;
“MY NAME IS GINA and I am a very beautiful lady that is single and searching indicate interest in the comment section and then submit CV into this email add ………@gmail.com Pls my headache is headaching me so don’t stress me with long stories.”
On her daughter’s birthday on April 5, Regina narrated how being a widow and having to cater for two children at such a young age devasted her.
“So it happened that, when I had to take my sick husband (now late) back to the village as I have exhausted all avenues possible to see that his health improves, so I decided to take him back to his parents so we could all know what next to do.
“I left Amaka with my parents back here in Lagos and went with the little baby I just had. After some months their father eventually died and I was shattered, turning a widow at that young age wasn’t something I had bargained for, it was indeed the most confused, painful, devastating, excruciating time of my life (still is) I didn’t even know what to feel or do. Now as the customs of the land demand my children had to be present.
“I had one with me, so my mum brought Chiamaka who was just 2yr old then, the little girl was just so happy to see mummy, every other thing she doesn’t understand (lol) I looked at her and fresh tears made their ways down my cheek, I said to myself ‘how I go take do am now’ in my 20’s with 2 kids HOW REGINA, HOW’ II remember, I was sitting down there with ZERO NAIRA BALANCE, we had spent everything we had trying to save their father’s life, not even a good piece of cloth to my name …… so sorry guys tears won’t let me continue …. Gat to stop here.”
Regina Chukwu lost her husband four years into her marriage and has since then refused to remarry until her recent declaration.
