In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, popular Nollywood actress and producer, Uche Jombo, said before she got married five years ago, she never dated anybody that lived in Nigeria.

When asked how it feels being married to a man who lives in America, the mother of one said the feeling was not strange as she never dated any man that lived in Nigeria.

“Before I got married, I had always dated people who lived outside Nigeria. As a result, being married to someone who lives abroad does not seem bizarre. I didn’t plan to marry someone who lives abroad. Rather, it just happened.”

She advised ladies not to be pressurized into getting married. “Marry because you know this is what you want to do once in your lifetime.

You have to be married to someone you can do everything with. Don’t marry because people say it is time to get someone. Get married for yourself. The pressure today will not be worth the ache tomorrow.”

Twitters feedback

Newspapers should avoid writing false stories else they become doubtful source of information.

Once people begin to doubt you, you are literally finished. Stick with facts.
