Monalisa Chinda: “I had categorized all men as idiots”


Veteran Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda has gallantly made the cover for the May 2016 issue of Genevieve Magazine.

Monalisa Chinda shared her emotional journey to finding love again in the arms of her childhood love Victor Tonye Cole after her very public divorce.

Truthfully I had categorised all men as the same useless idiots (pardon my French),” she told the magazine, adding, “I am happy that I feel differently now. Marriage is always a better option for any woman who is single in this country. Forget 30, once you attain 35 and counting, men in this country call you a dead engine.

The actress who revealed she met her husband at 14 got married to her husband, Victor February 20, 2016 in a grand ceremony in the popular city of Port Harcourt.

1Monalisa was formerly married to Segun Dejo-Richard and their marriage crashed in 2009 following domestic abuse.

They had a child together.


  1. You are yet to come to terms with African tradition . Your marriage will still fail until you accept that your husband is your conscience. Americans are just coming to terms with the reality of men supervision role over women they are now learning african culture. Laws no matter how strong it may be can’t override God design and that’s why God created women from the ribs of men and not from the hair or head. Women must accept their limitations like their grandmothers and they would enjoy their husband till death separate them. Until that is done marriages of younger generation would continue to crash. God would open the eyes of women equality with men in domestic and family settings to reappraise and redirect their energy towards building a virile family life.
