When Nollywood actress and model, Mimi Orjiekwe, was starting out on her journey into acting, her father was totally against it while her mother grudgingly supported her. Their reason was simple: would their only daughter ever get a decent man to marry? But when their worst fears were beginning to play havoc with their imaginations, Mimi got engaged to Charles Billion, a dashing movie maker who has been rocking the damsel’s world.
Their engagement stunned the media, with some even getting pretty trigger-happy to report the couple has married in secret. Couple of years down the line, wedding bells is still to be heard for Mimi and Charles.
But days back, Mimi told Potpourri she is not a damsel in distress. She went on to tell us her marriage plans are very much on course. Saying this year maybe the year Charles does the needful
“Maybe, maybe not, I don’t really know because it’s not people’s business, it’s my business. When I decide to walk down the aisle, I will walk down the aisle but we talked about having a wedding this year. I just hope I bring out my time for it because I’m extremely busy this year. It’s something I want to do but it’s not something I want to rush because I don’t want to get in and get out like so many people do. But right now I think we’re getting ready for it this year” she said.
The Enugu-born ravishing beauty also disclosed in the chat that she is a PDP person and affirmed that her vote would be for Goodluck Jonathan and stated reasons for her choice.
“Yes, I support Jonathan because I don’t know, I just don’t like Buhari. He can’t be putting up with corrupt people in the country and be telling us he’s coming to fight corruption when those standing behind him are very corrupt. Tinubu, Amaechi, and so many of them, I’ve not seen anything good about them so what is going to make us believe they are going to fight corruption when they come?” she declared.
