Chidi Mokeme is definitely a naturally born artiste when it comes to acting in Nollywood movies. Chidi’s parents had wanted him to study science, but after his secondary education at the Federal Government College, Minna, he settled for computer science.
Pharmacy was actually his first choice, but no thanks to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) which played its usual frustrating and discouraging role, he attended the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu, merely to satisfy his parents’ wish.
But today, it is a different story, as Chidi a model, designer, entrepreneur and humanitarian is single and searching, despite having fathered a son who is now ten-years-old.
In a mini and recent interview with a Nigerian soft-sell magazine, GQ as Chidi is popularly called, opened up about life as a bachelor:
You are a ladies man, no doubt about that. Why has it been difficult finding a woman to spend the rest of your life with?
I haven’t said I am finding it difficult to get a woman to marry. I have not just gotten married. When I get married, I will be married. It’s as simple as that. You guys will be there when I get married (laughs).
What are those things that excite you about bachelorhood?
There is nothing. You have to appreciate the time; you have to plan for that time when you are no longer a bachelor. So, that is what bachelorhood does for you. It is an opportunity for you to experience, to run around and to see things for yourself and to discover yourself before you bring in somebody to share your life.
Are you into a serious relationship?
(Laughs) As soon as it happens, my fans will see pictures.
