#HappilyEverEshos PreWedding Shoot | Vlog | Pictures

The Rebirth! - Meet Fathia Williams

A couple of weeks ago Nollywood actress Faithia Williams, formerly Faithia Balogun, deleted all photos from her social media page and removed her ex-husband’s surname from her bio. The move left her fans puzzled but now, the reason for her actions have been made clear.

According to her management team, the movie star has undergone a “rebirth” as she signs with a new management team – Prestige Platform – and makes plans to appear on “bigger screens” of Nollywood.

Her team says “Faithia Williams is one of the biggest forces in the Nigerian movie industry that has kept the industry growing at a reasonably progressive pace. While she does this, she has also personally remained relevant in the industry over the past two decades, as she pursues a higher degree of prominence. As part of her career pathway to excellence, she looks not like what she has been through, as she has amazingly turned her challenges around in what is deemed fit as a redemption.”

“I believed that a wise woman builds her home. That’s why I stayed that long” – Mercy Aigbe Speaks Out in New Interview

Nollywood actor, Mercy Aigbe whose marital troubles caused by domestic violence have been making waves online, shares her story exclusively with Broadway TV.

Mercy had accused her husband of physical violence that has affected her sight and caused her to bleed internally from the alleged physical abuse on Sunday, April 16, 2017. When she was asked why she came out to say her husband never touched her, she was quick to refute it.
“I never for once came out to say that my husband did not beat me. The video people were referring to happened in 2013 when there were rumours of such and I did a video recording alongside my husband to debunk the claim. At that time I had to do it to protect his image and my marriage. I had to do a live video at that time”, she said.

On the beating and why she stayed: He beats me consistently I stayed because I loved him and because everytime he beats me, he begs and gets family and friends to beg me. He promised regularly to change but he never did. When my husband gets angry, he gets physical, not only to me but to anyone. He has done that with my house help who reported him to the Police years ago. I stayed because of my children and because a lot of people look up to me. I was a role model of some sort and I really wanted to keep it together. I just wanted a home.
