Chika Ike Talks Instagram, Father’s Rejection, Mother’s Death Again In New Interview
Chika Ike while speaking to Sunday Scoop revealed why she wrote about how her father rejected her from birth and her failed marriage in her new book – Boss Up. She also revealed the role her late mother played.
According to Chika, God makes us go through certain things in life so we can learn. And a story that can’t be shared from one’s experience is not fair.
Speaking on the negativity that instagram brings, the actress said;
“Instagram can spoil your day if you are not careful or strong. There is so much negativity in the world right now; so, you have to guard yourself with prayers. There is a need to start your day in a positive light and when you pray, your day has started positively.”
On her new book- Boss Up, she says;
“If you go through a lot of things and you are not willing to share, you’ve not achieved the purpose of God for your life. People will always have their perspectives about life and they talk about the dead too. I have gone through the phase of being scared or afraid of being judged by the public.
I am learning every day to focus on myself; I cannot control anyone’s thoughts. I was rejected from birth by my father and I addressed it in my new book.”
Speaking about the role her mother played in her life, she said;
“Before my mother died three years ago, I had a discussion with her in the hospital. She wanted to know when I would publish my book; she was once an author too. I told her I was scared and she told me to tell the truth,” said the actress.
“When she died, I lost myself for two years and I did a lot of therapy to get myself together. I was so attached to my mother and I didn’t want to disappoint her because she gave me her last word.
My mother’s death made me understand that life is too short and we don’t have much time on earth.
We don’t know how tomorrow would be; so, the earlier we started achieving our set goals, the better for us. It took me seven years to write my book because I was afraid to share some private things about me at some point. ”
