Beautiful Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke who recently shocked the world on October 3 when she announced of her divorce to Nollywood movie producer husband Austin Faani via a video on her Instagram page has recently revealed in another video that she has bipolar disorder, a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).
the 27 year old Ebonyi State born actress and mother of three who said she was leaving the union while she’s still alive, gave no reasons of what led to the end of her marriage. After seeing the video, some fans have come to a conclusion that she left the marriage due domestic violence.
In the video of her split, via her Instagram account, she said; ” Some people say I am crazy but I am not and I am doing this video to let the whole world know that I am done with the marriage.
“I don’t have a lot to prove that I am done with him but am done, am leaving with my life.
“I can’t say a lot now but you will hear my story,” she said.
Five days after the video of her split surfaced online, the beautiful actress who is currently receiving treatment at the First Delta American hospital, Asaba, recorded another short video to announced of her current condition and to also debunk speculations that her marriage crashed over domestic abuse from her husband, Austin Faani.
In the video recorded at the hospital, she said; “Five days ago, I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani is over and that video came with a lot of backlash from people with many insinuating that it’s a clear case of domestic violence. It’s not. Austin has never laid his hands on me. Austin has never even raised his voice at me and God in heaven knows that’s the truth.”
“I’m here at First Delta American hospital, Asaba, receiving treatment. Several psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally and I have been diagnosed of bipolar disorder. Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend not to know about it due to ignorance or overlook it. I cannot tell you all how I’ve been feeling in these tiny videos that I’ve been making but I will, however, show you motion pictures soon”.
