Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha used to be married to hubby, Dr.
Ifeanyi Igwegbe and together with their two beautiful daughters,
pictured above, they were a happy family until things fell apart in
But finally, after 3 years of dealing with the setback, Georgina has
found the courage to talk about her painful experience. Her mistakes and
her advice for every body going through a painful phase like this.
Here’s what she shared on her Facebook page earlier in January.
“It has taken almost four years to do this; it’s taken a lot of soul
searching, prayers and counseling to get to this juncture. It’s not a
breaking news that my almost a decade relationship is over.
While I do this with highest respect for my kids, family, friends, I
also do owe you my fans my sincere gratitude for your support and
prayers. A lot has been put out there on the internet about my marriage.
I crave your indulgence to please pray for my family.
There are no victors or vanquish(ed). I still have tremendous respect
for the father of my kids and I ask same from you all. He is a good man
and a great father, the fact that this marriage did not work is our
failures as two adults. I take full responsibility for the part I played
in it. While marriage ends, true friendship never dies. We remain good
friends and great parents to our two lovely daughters. We will do our
best to give them the best life has to offer. Once again, thanks for all
your love and support through the years.
Sincerely yours, Georgina Onuoha.
“Ps: I leave this with you. Have you ever watched a film and a
certain character or saying strikes a chord in your very soul and you
think THAT IS JUST LIKE ME (?).
Me too. I watched the film, The Holiday for the first time the other
day. And I sobbed my heart out. Have you watched it? You should. A part
of my soul resonated so loudly with Kate Winslet’s character, Iris it
actually scared me.
I, at some point in my life, had felt the deep pain that she was feeling in that film.
And what pain was that? The pain of a broken heart. The pain of feeling
worthless and used. The pain of having someone toy with your emotions
repeatedly and relentlessly and view it as a game. I have felt that. I
have lived that. It isn’t nice.
“If you have never had your heart broken, then I hope – with every
fiber of my mended but scarred heart – that you never experience it. I
really do. However, if you have experienced it, then I am talking to
you. I know how you feel, believe me – I do.
Whether you have been lied to or warn (run) down, I want you to know
this: No matter how bad it gets or how low you feel, you will come out
of it. You will recover. Because you are special. TY”.
