Popular movie star Chacha Eke Faani has reportedly reconciled with her estranged movie producer husband, Austin Faani, months after she declared they have both gone their separate ways.
In June, for the second time in two years, Chacha announced the end of her nine-year-old marriage to the father of her four kids.
“For the 2nd time in 2 years, I am here again on social media boldly declaring that I am done with my marriage. My long overdue/relentless stance on this is of course no news to Austin Faani, the doctors, and my parents,” she said.
Citing reasons for her decision, the actress stated the need to stay alive rather than leave as a corpse propels her to terminate the marriage, noting it was long overdue.
She apologised to the public for misleading them by depicting she had a blissful life while being married.
But in September, during an Instagram Live session with fans, the 35-year-old Nollywood star addressed concerns of fans about returning to her hubby “when the chance presents itself”
She stated that she still has Faani on her Instagram bio because they’re gonna get back soon.
However, in a viral video currently trending online, Chacha hinted at reuniting with her hubby, while speaking on Sunday, during a testimony session at the House on the Rock Church in Asaba, Delta state.
In the video, she was seen repeatedly addressing Austin, who was also in attendance at the church, as “my husband”.
The actress also detailed her battles with bipolar disorder and how the disorder made her hate her husband and children, whom she referred to as “my treasured possessions.”
Eke went on to talk about a time the disorder made her abscond from home because “I was convinced in my head my husband wanted to use me for ritual.”
The movie star thanked Austin for supporting her during the trying moment.
“I was supposed to visit the hospital but I did not because my husband and I who are seated here supported me,” she said.
“The expensive treasure that I had, still have is my husband and my children. But trust bipolar disorder to make a mess of my most treasured possessions.
“If you have bipolar disorder, when you’re having an episode, your favourite thing and people become your worst enemy.”

One Rose wrote “And Nigerians were busy accusing the husband of domestic violence, the earlier we all learn not to jump in conclusion fast the world will a better place, what will now happen to all the allegations they laid on the man? Learn to hear from both sides of the story before concluding, and if you don’t know what happened, and you weren’t there just shut up! Everybody should learn”
One Makinde wrote “This her family and parents need to understand that this lady needs a thorough self discovery and realization at this point. However, the beautiful things is that she is sound on her mind at the moment, but let her still evaluate that her husband because, his brother’s words before now has shown that the husband has a way of triggering her emotions to the extent she can be unstable when the anger issues or family fight starts. So they need her to be alive first before husband. My two cent. Happy Sunday everyone.”
