Popular Nollywood actress, Chioma Chukwuka-Akpotha has revealed how her mum adopted an unusual disciplinary measure to keep her in check.
She said her mum never used cane but used every other thing at her disposal at any given moment – including hands, slippers and pestle – to mete out discipline.
The beautiful thespian disclosed this in an interview published by New Telegraph on Saturday.
Speaking about memories of her mum, Chukwuka-Akpotha said, “It’s going to be five years that she passed away on May 22, I miss everything about her. She was my best friend. She didn’t use cane on me. She used hands, pestle, slippers and so on.
She was a ‘leftie’ and I kept forgetting all the time and expecting the slap from the right hand while slaps landed on my face from the left.
She went to her grave with 90 percent of my secrets. That was how close I was to my mum. She was practically my backbone. She did Omugo with me when I had my first child for almost a year.
“Things have never been the same with me since my mum died ” she said.
