Nollywood actress and movie producer, Chita Agwu Johnson has revealed that she got engaged to her husband four days after they met on social media.
The actress revealed this in an interview, recounting how it all happened, she said: “Funnily enough, I met my husband on Instagram though he knew me before then because we are both from the same state. At first, I didn’t know he hails from my place Uburu in Ebonyi State because he initially told me he is from Anambra State. It was after he saw me in a movie that he sent me a direct message on Instagram (well after he made findings about me). I remember the first words he said to me were that I’m beautiful, homely, and reserved. From there, we started talking and he engaged me on the fourth day.
“We were talking online for two weeks before he returned to Nigeria to meet with me. The fourth day after we met, he just told me to marry him. I was so surprised that’s why I called him my ‘heaven-sent’ because everything was so perfect and he has not changed since then. He is still the same person I met years ago. We got married traditionally in 2014 while the white wedding was in 2015.
Speaking on how she copes as an actor, and mother, Chita Agwu said; “It’s not easy at all. Sometimes when I’m filming, I try to call my husband several times to check up on him. I make sure to prepare a lot of soup and stew to preserve in the freezer so he won’t have to worry about food whenever I travel to a far location for a movie. I use diplomacy to balance these things.
“When we just got married, my husband stopped me from acting and I was away from the movie industry for about three years. I had to take that time off because I didn’t want to separate from my husband. Many people asked if I wasn’t acting anymore. I told them I wanted to give him time. I didn’t want to take decisions forcefully, I wanted peace and my home. My home is so important to me that I decided to handle it amicably. Today, I’m still acting without any issues. Whenever it’s not convenient for me to act, I won’t go.”
