‘I met the wrong person at the right time’, Monalisa Chinda speaks on failed marriage
Popular Nollywood actress Monalisa Chinda Coker has opened up about her failed marriage with ex-husband, Dejo Richards.
The 45 year old screen diva while granting an interview with newsmen said she did not regret that part of her life, adding that she was naive and young.
Within Nigerian gathered that the Nollywood actress said she met the wrong person at the right time, referring to her ex-husband, Segun Dejo Richards whose union crashed after five years of walking down the aisle.
According to her, what she experienced in her first marriage only made her wiser.
“No, I don’t see it as a mistake. I was just young and naive. I met the wrong person at the right time. The person was wrong for me, so what I did was to dust the dirt off my body and move on,” she said.
Talking about why she has not been regular on the TV screens, she said she is getting older and needs to allow the younger generation to take over from her.
“I’m not there on the screens as I used to be. I am getting older and need to give room for the younger generation to take over.”

The actress said she is more about producing her own movies and show. She said:
“That’s another reason I slowed down a bit. But this year 2020, you would see me gracing more of your TV screens.”
