Actor Gideon Okeke’s four-year-old marriage to Chidera Uduezue has crashed.
The 93 Days actor announced his separation from his wife in an Instagram post on Sunday.
Gideon who added that he does not want pity from his followers and friends also called for prayers for his family.
He wrote: “You wouldn’t believe it if told you that I’m separated from My marriage right? No, you wouldn’t so grab a seat. It is in the interest of clarity and a clear conscience that this becomes imperative. But yea. Breakfast reach Me too. Las Las. It’s been a hard hot pill I’ve had to swallow, and boy..it sure humbles one. This PSA wouldn’t be so important (to Me), but for the trap that finds FAME to be sometimes. Gagged.
“But as look to the future. pray for My BOYS. Such Lovely Boys. Pls, put us All In your prayers.. no pity party. They need Mum and Dad sane, sound and strong for the fulfillment of their best interests and we are working towards it. Hard! thank GOD. And Thank You for rooting for Us. One Life…many stories. Pls don’t call, and don’t text, as we work our way to final dissolution. These processes take a toll on one as you may know. God bless y’all.”
The Lagos-born actor introduced himself to the Nigerian audience in 2006 when he contested on the first edition of Big Brother Nigeria.
Gideon married Chidera in a quiet but intimate white wedding ceremony in April 2019 but the ex-couple tied the knot traditionally in 2018.
The event held at Tickle Bay, Lekki, Lagos attracted some of the actor’s co-stars on the TV series, Tinsel, and a few other celebrities.
The estranged couple has two children together.
