Charles Inojie, the Nollywood actor, has opened up about the childhood struggles that shaped his life path. 


In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, Inojie said his mother left him as a baby after her marriage to his father ended.

The ace actor added that he was breastfed by his grandmother while his father chose his mistress over him.

Inojie said he spent only eight months living with his father.


The 52-year-old actor said he could not cry when he eventually met his mother later in life because he has seen a lot from being on the street for too long.

“Since I was born, I have only lived with my dad for eight months. It got to a point, my father’s mistress asked him to choose between her and me. And he chose her,” he said.

“The day I was to meet my mother for the first time, I have seen a lot so nothing moved me anymore. I have been on the street for too long.


“One of my uncles called me and when I entered his room, he was there with a woman. They were all quiet.

“The next thing, I saw the woman cleaning tears. I said, ‘Brother Solo, it is like this woman is my mother.’ He said, ‘Wow! Blood is thicker than water.’
“I said I was happy to see her but I do not know why she is crying. If she is expecting me to also cry and hug her, I am not going to do it.

“The marriage between my father and mother ended when I was still a baby. It was my grandmother who breastfed me.”
