See Excerpts of Nollywood actress Mimi Orjiekwe’s recent phone chat with The Entertainer on the crash of her marriage to Charles Billion
Is there any lesson to take home from your failed marriage?
My failed marriage was just a lesson and I don’t regret the union. My baby was a product of the marriage and I love her a lot. I also believe that God made me experience it for me to be in a better place. I am not cordial with my ex-husband (Charles Billion); when I move on, I move on, but the baby keeps us together from a distance. I am not bitter with men even after the experience; I am happy. I gave my marriage my best; I cannot say I was always right, but I am a superwoman and I try my best to make everyone around me happy. I have no regrets because if you have good intentions, you will always be fine. We dated for three years before getting married in 2015; so, I didn’t rush into it.
So you might give marriage a second shot?
Yes, I plan to marry again. My marriage is my private life and I don’t owe anyone an explanation. I don’t think there is any problem in getting married to an entertainer; it is about marrying the right person. I was probably in love with him then; so, when he asked me to marry him, I thought I would be happy with him. I guess I didn’t do my research very well. Right now, if I want to get married, I have to pay attention to every little detail. I will not just fall in love with any man for his wealth or looks.
What do you consider the most frustrating matter in your life?
Fame is not a curse for me, but it has exposed me to many things I don’t want in my life. It makes people criticise you and it makes people think they know everything about you. When you see people talking about you, you will be surprised because you don’t even know those things about yourself. But I don’t blame the public; it is the life I have chosen. I am thankful to God as well as acting has opened many doors for me and made me who I am today.
What else inspires you?
My mother just left my house last week; I call her a hustler. I learnt how to be strong from her. Till now, I still learn a lot from her and she has always been there for me.
Do you think anyone is competing with you in any area of life?
I am not competing with anyone; I am just myself. If you are successful today, I wish you the best but life is not all about competition. I just do things I love to do and it has helped me.
What’s your style expression?
I think people are in a better position to describe my style. At times, I am obsessed with myself and I like to follow trends and look good every day. Sometimes too, I don’t have much time and I look very simple. I think my fashion has a lot to do with my mood, but my favourite colour is grey. I love my wristwatches; I don’t use earrings all the time. You can see that I am not even wearing one right now.
How do you relax?
I stay indoors and I like to play with the phone in a cold room. Once my baby is disturbing and I want to relax, I just run to the other room. I relax more whenever I am not in the country.
What legacy do you live for?
I want to be successful and I want to be able to help people in my society. Folorunsho Alakija is my role model. I like her a lot because she is a strong woman and I see myself becoming like her someday.

#EndSARS: Toke Makinwa Reacts To Lagos Curfew
Popular OAP, Toke Makinwa, has reacted to the Lagos state curfew imposed by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu. The media personality believes it is not a sensible action to take.
Her reason is that power will be given back to the police whom the protesters have been fighting against, adding that the government is operating a sick system.
Taking to Twitter, she writes:
“The government, the sick system, how can you announce a curfew when people are already out? What happens to those who can’t get home before 4? You’ll give power back to the police we are fighting against? Make it make sense #EndSARS”
