Despite being a mom of two, Yoruba movie actress Mercy Aigbe isn’t  fan of the 9 month process before giving birth, in a new interview she says being pregnant is one thing that scares her.

I love being a mother that I don’t know how to describe the feeling. It is something that every woman should experience – watching your children grow, having that feeling that you have to protect them is an awesome feeling.  At times when I look at my son and I see how fast he has grown, I feel great.  When he does new things, it amazes me. I am enjoying it and I thank God I’m a mother because it is a blessing.  I feel my children are all I have got in this world.  I see them as my world, they weight beyond all I have achieved.  I feel my children are my life and my legacy.

The sultry actress who recently legalized her marriage to husband of 3 years, Lanre Gentry also spoke about being regarded as one of the best dressed actresses in Nollywood, balancing her career with family & loads more.

Many criticized Chika for posting those pictures, personally I thought it was tacky, but as Chika said in a recent interview, it’s her money & she can spend it anyway she wants!

She addressed her critics saying,

Whose money? Is it not the money I worked hard for? Did anybody give me? I have worked hard and I deserved every bit of the luxury I enjoyed over there and I can proudly say that. I will do it over and over again because I deserve it.

In the same interview Chika also said she would ever reconcile with her abusive ex husband, Tony Eberiri who she married in 2006 and finally divorced last year, 2013.
