Following the tragic and untimely death of gospel musician Osinachi Nwachukwu, reportedly as a result of domestic abuse, people have been reacting in a variety of ways. Amaka Obi, a Nollywood actress and businesswoman, is also caught up in the whirlwind of emotions which surrounds the tragedy.
“No one should succumb to marital bullying,” Amaka says. “Even though we were not inside to see what triggered the man’s action, I believe people don’t just wake up & decide to start beating their partners. You either would have seen that trait in them or they just suddenly became afflicted. (Which obviously should have a reason) I’ll say “speak up for help or leave when the situation has gone beyond what you can handle.”
Amaka posited that marriage should be a blissful experience and that one should think deeply before taking the plunge.
“Marriage should be a blissful addition, a safe place away from this cold world. My ideal partner first, is a man who loves and acknowledges God. Who doesn’t find happiness in money but must also love money (hardworking), a great sense of humor, passionate about legacy & most of all a lover boy,” she said.
Amaka Obi has taken a bit of a breather from acting because she has been building her business known as Mirror Skin Africa which has kicked off with (MSHOMES), a furniture house where she sells imported, homemade furniture, and everything household.
