Chacha Eke Faani, the Nollywood actress, has revealed that her nine years old marriage to Austin Faani Ikechukwu has ended.


The film star and Austin, the movie director, tied the knot in 2013. The couple has four children.

But in an Instagram post on Monday night, Eke spoke on the struggles she has grappled with due to her marriage.

She also advised couples to exit abusive relationships alive or risk losing their lives.


The actress made an example of her marriage and the precautionary safety steps she has taken.

Eke said her testimonial has been made available to her lawyers and the police, should in case she goes missing.

“Many have died pretending all is well whilst wishing, hoping, and praying for a better tomorrow. I don’t want to “die” or go inexplicably “missing,” she wrote.


“I sincerely and publicly apologize for living a lie these past years. True to random speculations, there has been trouble in my “perceived paradise”.

“For the 2nd time in 2 years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage. My long overdue/relentless stance on this is of course no news to Austin Faani, the doctors, and my parents.

“If push comes to shove & suddenly I am incommunicado.

“My lawyers, the welfare department, and the Nigerian police force have my testimonials in recorded video clips/statements set for public release on all social media apps and national newspapers.”


In 2020, Chacha appeared to have shared a video announcing the end of her marriage to the movie director.

The actress would later disclose her battle with bipolar disorder while denying claims her marriage ended due to domestic violence.
