There have been rumours about the marriage of Nollywood actress Uche Elendu with some saying the marriage has packed up. The beautiful actress who is a mother of two is saying yes, they had their issues as there is no marriage without hitches. She also noted that her husband is a very nice person. Uche also told of the challenges her acting career faced because before she got to where she is today.
Uche noted that joining the industry was smooth for him but staying put was difficult because she was still a student and also because she got married at the peak of her career. “I think I am one of the lucky ones because I didn’t really go through stress to get roles. I got my first role through my friend’s father, Larry Koldsweat, and things have just proceeded smoothly for me. The only challenge I had was that I was in the university when I started my career; so, I often had to leave school to be on movie sets. Also, I got married when I got to the peak of my career and that slowed me down because I had to face my family and build a home.” Aside from being married, Uche is also a mother and of course due to the nature of her job, that aspect is expected to suffer some hitches. She noted the motherhood is the best thing to have happened to her. “That is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Whenever I am stressed out and I remember my kids, along with a smile, crosses my lips. It is really a blessing from God. I don’t know what would have happened to me if I hadn’t had my kids the time I did. Even though it could be stressful, it makes me more responsible because there are people that depend on me totally. I love my kids and I live for them.” Though she never wanted to speak about her marriage, Uche revealed that her courtship with her husband was not long. She claimed they got engaged just a month after meeting. “I know there were some reports about my marriage being in crisis. There is no marriage that is perfect as there will always be ups and downs. However, I don’t like talking about my marriage in the media because I like to keep my private life private. The bottom line is that everything is fine. My husband is a very nice and kind person. We only dated for six months and we got engaged just a month after we first met.”
Uche Elendu got married to Walter Ogochukwu Igweanyiba Owerri, Imo state in 2012. Rumour had it that she relocated to Lagos because her marriage had packed up but the actress claimed that the main reason she moved to Lagos was that she needed a change of environment. She had her last child in April 2016 despite rumour of marriage collapse.
