Actor Chidi Mokeme explains why he lives separately from wife

Nollywood
actor, Chidi Mokeme and his wife, Jean, have been living separately since they
wedded in April 28, 2012. While Jean has remained in her US base, Chidi Mokeme
still reside in Nigeria.
In a recent interview with Yes Magazine Chidi had this to say:

Well,
when I met my wife, this was our default setting. Let me put it like that. Our
default setting was that I live in Nigeria and my wife lives in America and
then we started a relationship and decided to take the relationship further and
decided we were gonna be man and wife. So, having taken that decision and
having crossed that level, the next thing is to find a way to ease into a
location. Everybody knows that you don’t just pack your bag and move in one
day. There are things that need to be sorted, relocation needs to be sorted.
So, we are taking our time with it. But then again, by virtue of my job, I have
a pretty much very flexible timing. I own my time, I decide when to work, when
not to work. So, really, I can be with my wife anytime, every time I so desire
and it makes it easy. If I work 9-5, then we will always have to wait for when
someone was on leave the whole year round, if I want, just to be with my wife.
