Gistlovers, a contentious Instagram blog, has published information on Chacha Eke and her ex-husband, Austin Faani, following their divorce.
The anonymous blogger detailed how Chacha Eke kidnapped Austin Faani, a movie editor at the time, from her colleague Eve Esin and eventually married him despite knowing he’s gay.
According to Gistlovers, Chacha did this in order to get to the top, particularly in light of Eve Esin’s mistreatment of her.
According to the post:
“Good day, tueh tueh.” Now, for those of you who want the whole story without any sugarcoating, here it is.
Chacha is a brilliant actress and a household name in Nollywood; Eve Esin brought her to Asaba from Ph to act; she was squatting with Eve because she had just left her kid for an older man in Abakiliki before heading to Port Harcourt (I am sure many of you are unaware of this aspect of her). When Eve brought her to Asaba, she didn’t treat her well because she was making everyone aware that she was her boss and ordering her around, making her carry her bags and all that when they were mates and acting on the same movie set, Eve introduced her to Solo Amaco as that one in turns sleeps with both of them for roles, Eve was also the one who was knacking Austin for more visibility at the time. Austin worked as an editor. If you watch most Nigerian movies, you’ll see Eve’s face is everywhere, even when she’s executing a waka pass. Another actor will be speaking, but you will see Eve’s face. Chacha, a keen and desperate girl looking for her way up, played a cunning game on Eve, did a kurukere waka, and snatched him knowing full well he is Gay, it’s not hidden to Eve and Chacha because they caught him times without number and his excuse is that he is doing it for money and all. They all know he’s gay, but he’s a very calm gay, which she is aware of, but they were really compatible. Chacha was starving, desperate, and astute. Austin was a quiet, home-oriented guy who kept her grounded. Then he dumped Eve for Chacha, wey the matter was a fight at the time, Chacha was the new favorite, and that’s how they became a force of nature. Chacha was already a sensation when she traveled to towns to see men; every PH militant and politician wanted to be her. Austin acts as her manager, receives the money, and sleeps in another room while his girlfriend entertains the paying customer. Then they return home, affluent and content, until oga. Austin knack am belle, that was the start of their problems, look for part 2 in the following post.”
