Daring Nollywood Actress Chioma Ifemeludike made an open confession a few months ago, stating that she had an affair with fiery Nigerian clergyman Johnson Suleman of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide congregation and that she was paid for it.
After receiving a lot of backlash for her confession, Ifemeludike took a break from social media for a while.
However, in a recent interview with the Saturday Sun, the Painful Truth actress discusses her experiences since the scandal, including how it has affected her mental health.
” Life has been amazing since after the confession, even though the intense backlash kind of got to my mental health the first few days after it went viral, but because of being this person who looks to God and not man, I’ve always been really attached to God, ” she says.
As a result, finding my spiritual, mental, and physical feet was not difficult for me.
Yes, it was difficult at times, but I had to deal with the problem in my thoughts over time, and as the days passed, I became more driven and stronger. “
When asked about her reaction to the allegations that she was attempting to extort additional money from Suleman Johnson, Chioma Ifemeludike laughed it off.
” Those who know me are aware that money does not frighten me. Character is what frightens me. Money and power do not sway me. Money is necessary, but it is not sufficient. There is a way I look at life, and there are some things that are more important to me than money. Who is the extortionist? What will he offer me in terms of money?
” Do you have any idea how much guilt I’ve been carrying for the past few years because of something I did? I know I did it out of desperation, because I wasn’t t acting appropriately, and now that I’m dealing with the guilt, I’ve come out to spill the beans, and I want to extort the person! I’m not sure how that works, but even if they bring a billion dollars, I’m not going anywhere.
” The truth will always be the truth. It’s true; it’s bigger than me; the Universe has recorded it; and there’s something bigger than the Universe, something bigger than money, and something that brought us here. We must always consider alternatives. Money was not an idea when the universe was created when everything you see was put together. Money was invented by man, so why would I want to do anything of that magnitude for the sake of money?
” No, that’s completely incorrect. I never did anything to coerce money from anyone. I did it for my society, children of God, and that is what will matter for decades, centuries, and that is what will count, not money, ” she stated.
Ms Ifemeludike also claimed that she had no regrets revealing her misdeeds openly, ” I don’t have a single atom of regret. ” In fact
I’m in a fantastic mood. Since the day I made that confession, a lot of wonderful things have happened to me. It’s been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
So, why should I regret it? I did it for the sake of my God and humanity. It cost me a lot of money, but something new and good usually comes at a price. It’s always at a price, and it’s always a high price. Yes, I did it; I’m proud of it; I own it, and I have no regrets. “
