It’s been almost a year since the news of Nollywood actor, Blossom Chukwujekwu’s failed marriage with fashion entrepreneur, Maureen Esisi, hit the internet and some fans are still not over the sad news.
Just recently, Esisi who goes by the moniker Redvigor, took to her Instagram page to share a little about her failed marriage.
Sharing a post of herself dated August 11, 2019, she pointed out that it was the same day she received the news of her failed marriage in 2019.
Redvigor revealed it was her father who told her that her marriage to Chukwujekwu was over.
She explained that her first reaction was to laugh and pace the room. Then, she pondered why she was the last to know about her failed marriage.
“I put both hands in my pocket and paced the room silently as he looked at me waiting on me to say something.
I pondered in my head about what I had just heard, why I was the last person to know it and how in the world we got there.”
She went on to hint on tolerance being one of the reasons their marriage didn’t work out.
According to her, African culture encourages women to be more tolerant of whatever is thrown at her but the same is not applied to men.
“African culture makes it so that the Woman must take it all in, she must understand no matter what, she must be subdued, she must never complain, she must learn to live with whatever
She must forgive even when she can’t, she must show happiness even when she is depressed, she must show strength even when she is weak…. and more.
But the Man, He is allowed to NOT take sh*t (even the tiniest of it) He would even be Praised for it. Life!”
Redvigor who will be 33 in September, revealed she is much happier with her life and added that even though she isn’t perfect, she was his best.
“September 11th in View; I will be 33. I am Happier. I am at Peace. I’m stronger. I’m Richer. I’m sexier. I’m Single.
I’m Free. I wasn’t Perfect, I will NEVER be… But I was His Best! Someday, I will Tell this Story…”
