Nollywood actress and producer, Charity Eke popularly known as Chacha Eke has disclosed in an Instagram post yesterday, June 7, that she prayed her mother died while growing up.
According to the famous actress, she had nightmares and hallucinations which made her begin to dislike and develop a deep hatred for her mum.
Chacha Eke said, “This is a video of me and my biological Mom.
“I loved her intensely when I was younger. She was, and still is my best friend. However, as I got older, I began to dislike and develop a deep hatred for her. I had nightmares and hallucinations that supported my euphoria.
“Sadly, many men of God told me after several manic episodes that she was after my life. And so I went about wishing her death and spewing despicable things about her.
“Looking back now at my mental health challenges and journey, it’s laughable to know that those dysfunctional thought patterns and beliefs of mine were a disorder; a chemical reaction in the brain waves that switches your ‘most favourite’ to ‘your least favourite’.
“Dear reader, many people have been emotionally torn apart from their loved ones due to underlying mental conditions. They’d come up with all sorts of negative stories to back up their disillusioned claims. Thankfully, there are pills for those weird inexplicable feelings. Did you know?
“Today is my mother’s birthday and I’m grateful to have realised it was all a sickness in my head while she’s still alive. I love you deeply Mommy. You’re a blessed Woman. 9 Grandchildren and still counting😍”
Chacha Eke, who shot to fame when she starred in the 2012 Nollywood film, ‘The End is Near’, is famous for starring in ‘Asaba’ movies. She has so far been featured in over 150 movies.
Six months after announcing a second separation from her husband over domestic violence allegations, actress Chacha Eke in a testimony at church last November absolved him of the blame and opened up on her battle with bipolar syndrome, revealing how it almost wrecked her marriage.
During a Sunday church service, the 35-year-old actress shared a testimony about how she struggled with bipolar disorder and its impact on her marriage.
