Feb 26, 2018 – Mimi Orjiekwe: I Dated Charles Billion For 3 Year We Married, My Marriage Might Have Crashed, But My Baby Not A Mistake
Nollywood actress cum enterpreneur Mimi Orjiekwe has revealed why her experience with her ex-husband Charles Billion has made her a better person.
Speaking with Punch NG, the single mother of one said:
“My failed marriage was a lesson. My baby is a product of the marriage and I love her a lot. I also believe that God made me pass through the experience for me to be in a better place. I don’t have a cordial relationship with my ex-husband (Charles Billion), but the baby keeps us together from a distance.
I am not bitter with men even after the experience. I cannot say I was always right but I am a superwoman and I try my best to make everyone around me happy. We dated for three years before getting married in 2015; so, I didn’t rush into it.
“However, I plan to remarry. I don’t think there is anything wrong with getting married to an entertainer; it is about marrying the right person. If I want to get married again, I will pay attention to every little detail. I will not just fall in love with any man for his wealth or looks.”
“Last year was beautiful for me because I had my baby girl. It was a new beginning in my life. I became a mother and everything changed. In order to care adequately for my daughter, I had to cut back on travelling.
“Right now, I am struggling to shed some weight. I gained weight when I had my baby because I had to breastfeed her for a long time, but I was slim while pregnant. However, I work out every morning and I am on a diet.
Though I anticipated that I would get fat and my stomach would be bigger, the joy of being a mother supersedes all that. You can always fix your body later and it is worth sacrificing your body to have a child.”
“I recently unveiled a make-up line for women. I want to contribute to society by providing quality services. It is a store where cosmetics are sold but we are focusing on a make-up line for women right now.
I hope with time, we can cater to men too. In anything I do, I want to give my best. I intend to grow my business to be able to compete with international brands and I know it is possible”.
