Top Nollywood actress, Rachael Oniga in a recent interview talks about her separation from her late husband.

The scandal free single mother of three tells The Entertainer in this interview.
On the extent her late ex-husband hurt her: He hurt me badly.Yes. During our years of courtship and marriage, I never suspected that we would just break up like that or anything could ever come between us. Back then he told me everything. I could tell you where he was at every moment; I trusted him so much.
On meeting the other woman her ex-husband left her for: It was later, much later and when I did I was like ‘did he leave me because of this thing?’ I don’t know how to put it but men don’t really appreciate what they have until they lose it.
On how she got over the shock and the journey afterwards: I believe so much in myself, and when I got over the shock of the separation and all that, I made up my mind that I was going to make a statement without a man. I wanted to prove that a hardworking woman could make an impact and with God’s grace I have come a long way.
The truth is that when you’re focused and you know where you’re going to, you’re likely to succeed. I made up my mind then that I wasn’t going to remarry. I was determined to make it and make all men including my late husband know that with God by her side, a woman can make it in life without a man’s support.
Rachael also advised other women going through the same situation she said: “Just believe in yourself and with hard work, you will get there. God is always faithful. I killed my emotions and I said to myself ‘Rachael, your kids must go to the best schools.’ It was just work and my children.
Rachael Oniga, a computer programmer who got into Nollywood in 1993 has remained one of the few actresses that has successfully carved a niche for herself both in the English and Yoruba sector of the movie industry.
