Popular comedian and actress, Chioma Omeruah, professionally known as Chigul, has proudly revealed she married as a virgin.
The 46-year-old thespian revealed she got married at 33 and kept her chastity up until that time, but the marriage crashed only a year later.
“We were not perfect, there were good days I won’t lie. It just got to a place where we both didn’t care anymore. I have been made to believe that it was my job to keep that afloat and the fact that it sank, I take on my head.
Would I have changed anything about it? No, because it happened for a reason. I’m happy it happened at one year with no children and no attachments. I married at 33, I married a virgin. That was my first ever anything and it was supposed to be special and last,” she said.
Chigurl, while reacting to Basketmouth’s ex-wife Elsie’s advice to Nigerians to stop “marriage-shaming” women, agreed that society puts a lot of pressure on women regarding marriage and childbearing.
She recalled how people had advised her to have a child in order to save her marriage.
“Someone told me, just born one hold am. I was like are we playing cards? Hold am kwa? Hiaaaan! Nigerians are too forward”, she wrote.
