Nollywood actress in divorce mess

By Adeola Adenuga

There was a drama in Agege Grade ‘A’ Customary Court when a 29-year-old Nollywood actress, Mrs. Enitan Ogunkeye, who filed for divorce against her husband, Mr. Adekunle Ogunkeye, accused him of dubious behaviour, constant beating and drunkenness.

The couple exchanged  harsh words over their drinking habit.

”My husband drinks a lot and, anytime he drinks, he misbehaves. He  has lost respect and reduced in size due to his drinking habit.

He has been disgraced many times in public because of his drinking habit”, Enitan said.  She told the court that she could  no longer live with the husband because they fight over  money frequently. Meanwhile, the 43-year old  husband, a  civil servant, said: “I agree that I am a drunkard but  we are birds of  a  feather because we both drink.”

Adekunle told the court that  the N50,000 he collected from his wife was spent on their son’s birthday for which his wife told him some artistes  would be around but  nobody came while  all the things she bought were wasted.

”My wife is a wasteful spender. As an actress, she sees herself as a celebrity despite the fact that she is not well known in Nollywood,” he said.

The court president, Mr Emmanuel Shokunle, ordered both parties to maintain peace and adjourned the case to Sept.19 for further hearing.
