Mbong, a former beauty queen (Miss Akwa Ibom 2003) had always wanted
to become an actress but her ex-husband preferred her at home with their
six years old daughter… an embargo she managed to put up with for 10
years of marriage.
She finally called the cards in 2013 and Jeta had to let go of her to pursue her dreams in the movie industry.
“I stole her youth and didn’t let her live her dream so it was better
to let her go and find new adventures. She’s happy and so am I.” Jeta
And oh heavens, how excellently she has performed in the past one year?!
Since the separation, Mbong has featured in several movies, one of
them is Forgetting June produced by Emem Isong, Apaye also by Emem Isong
and achieved a fete months ago by premiering her movie, Darima’s
Dilemma. A movie about Darima who is happily married to the the love of
her life, Josh, but harbours a secret that is capable of crashing her
perfectly created home. It stars Majid Michel, IK Ogbonna and Diana
We now also get to see her at social events and on red carpets.

When asked if she misses her ex-husband Jeta, she said: “Jeta is a great man, fantastic dad but life has to move on.”
