Charles Inojie, the Nollywood actor and director, shared his childhood story, revealing that he was abandoned by his mother as a baby. Raised by his grandmother, he lived with his father for only eight months before being evicted by his father, who chose his mistress over him. Inojie later reunited with his mother much later in life.
Speaking in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Inojie said, “Since I was born, I’ve only lived with my dad for eight months. It got to a point, my father’s mistress asked him to choose between her and me. And he chose her.
“The day I was to meet my mother for the first time, I’ve seen a lot so nothing moved me anymore. I’ve been on the street for too long. One of my uncles called me and when I entered his room, he was there with a woman. They were all quiet. The next thing, I saw the woman cleaning tears. I said, ‘Brother Solo, it’s like this woman is my mother.’ He said, ‘Wow! Blood is thicker than water.’ I said I’m happy to see her but I don’t know why she’s crying. If she’s expecting me to also cry and hug her, I’m not going to do it.
“The marriage between my father and mother ended when I was still a baby. It was my grandmother who breastfed me.”
He mentioned that his mother passed away at the age of 58, leaving behind 16 children. Inojie also shared that upon returning to his father after university graduation, his dad wept for over 30 minutes, overwhelmed by shame for having abandoned him.
