Nigerian actress, Charity Eke — popularly known as Chacha Eke Faani — who recently split from her husband, has announced that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Recall that Chacha Eke had on October 3 announced the crash of her seven-year-old marriage which had produced three children.
According to Chacha, she was leaving the union “while she’s still alive”, leading to reports attributing the break-up to domestic violence.
In a video shared on Instagram, she had 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.”
Meanwhile, in another short video she posted on Wednesday night, the actress clarified that her estranged husband never laid his hands on her.
“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 is a clear case of domestic violence,” she said in the video recorded from a hospital bed in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
“It is not. Austin has never laid his hands on me. He has never even raised his voice at me and God in heaven knows that’s the truth. I am here at First Delta American hospital in Asaba receiving treatment.
“Many psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally and I have been diagnosed with suffering from bipolar disorder.
“Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend not to know about it due to ignorance. I cannot tell how I have been feeling with these videos that I have been making,” Chacha who looked pale and depressed said in the video.
