KING WOMEN: CHIGUL'S STORY HAD ME IN TEARS!
I came across a video where Chioma "Chigul" Omeruah was talking about challenges she faced in her past and how they still affect her. The video was a 3 minute trailer but it had me in tears. I never knew Chigul was married, did you? She describes how her marriage fell apart, her husbands betrayal ( he got someone else pregnant) and my heart broke.
She talked about her relationship with her mother-it's had it's ups and downs and she was really hurt that she didn't get as much support as she expected.Everybody talks to women to "hold your home" together, but who's holding the woman together? The breakup of a marriage is not easy to go through alone, you don't need to experience it to know. Ordinary guy just met you yesterday and didn't call, you know how e dey pain, talkies of a marriage breaking apart.
Chigul also touched on the fact that she is very much fulfilled in her career but is longing for a loving relationship. She wants it all: love, commitment and babies! I said a prayer for her!
We usually see Chigul happy and making jokes, you would never know she went through all this if she didn't tell you which is why I think Kemi Adetiba is doing something remarkable; helping powerful Nigerian women that a lot of us look up to tell their story in a very raw way! The new series is called King Women and I cannot wait to see it, all this "is coming, is coming" is just making me tired! LOL
