HOW SAD! Chris Attoh Finally Confirms Divorce From Damilola Adegbite

One of Africa’s best actors, Chris Attoh has finally opened up about his crashed marriage with top Nigerian actress, Damilola Adegbite after months of speculations and denial by both parties.

The news about divorce hit the media sometime last year but the two “actors” were able to pull it all off by keeping it all low and keeping the truth away from the media. At least not until now.

In an exclusive interview with Bellanaija, Chris who talked extensively about his ongoing and future projects, also admitted for the first that his marriage to the actress and the mother of his son, Brian is over.

Read some excerpts from the interview:

On how he and his ex-wife balanced their marriage, son and work:
I believe throughout our marriage, it was probably one of the most challenging things we ever did. However, the key word is balance. At times when we both had to work, our parents would be there to hold the fort. God bless family because they were and still are very supportive.

However, since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son.

Dami is a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. Despite our differences, she and I will always be friends. So, more than anything we will find ways to continue to make sure that Brian can still have a balanced upbringing filled with love and support. Both our families have been and are still very supportive in helping us take care of our son Brian when we can’t be there due to work.

On his recent film, the role & what the experience was like:
It’s an American Indie film, “An Accidental Zombie Named Ted” produced and directed by Anne Welles. I had actually auditioned for the role 4 years ago through KM productions, one of my affiliate agents in the USA.

Zombies are indeed involved, but it’s not entirely a zombie movie, in fact, there is only one zombie and he seems to be in denial.

The movie also stars actors like Gary Anthony Williams from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Kane Hodder, best known for his role as horror icon Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th and Jason Goes to Hell movies. It was such a privilege to work with and learn from the amazing cast and crew.

In fact, I’ve just returned from shooting it in Florida. I played the role of Ricky, Ted’s friend. Ted, who is also the lead character, was played by Cameron McKendry. The actual movie will be finished in Spain by the end of October. Then we have to go straight to LA in November for a screening with AFM. There will also be a screening in Florida, I believe in December before its cinematic release.
