How My Mum Abandoned Me As A Baby – Charles Inojie

The Nollywood actor Charles Inojie has spoken out about the early struggles that molded his chosen path.

In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, Inojie said that his mother abandoned him when he was a toddler when her marriage to his father ended.

The acclaimed actor went on to say that his grandma breastfed him while his father preferred his lover over him.

Inojie stated that he only lived with his father for eight months.

Because he had been on the street for too long, the 52-year-old actor said he couldn’t cry when he eventually met his mother later in life.

“Since I was born, I have 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,” he said.

“The day I was to meet my mother for the first time, I have seen a lot so nothing moved me anymore. I have 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 is like this woman is my mother.’ He said, ‘Wow! Blood is thicker than water.’
“I said I was happy to see her but I do not know why she is crying. If she is expecting me to also cry and hug her, I am 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.”
