I Wrecked Most Of Our Properties During My Manic Episodes – Chacha Eke

June 20, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actress and mental health advocate, Charity Eke, also known as Chacha Eke, has opened up about her experience and struggles with mental health.

Chacha Eke started her mental health advocacy in 2022 after reconciling with her husband, Austin Faani.

She had walked out of her marriage after accusing her husband of domestic violence. She later made a U-turn and blamed her struggle with bipolar disorder as the reason for her behaviour.


The actress disclosed some of her ordeals during one of her outreaches organised for people with mental health issues.

According to the mother of four, she often destroys properties during her manic episodes.

She added that her family did not have any property at the time because she would destroy them in a matter of time.

“To be frank, if the disorder that I have been battling with didn’t sufficiently disgrace me to the point that it has, chances are I won’t be here championing it.

“My psychiatrist was my biggest nightmare. I wish I could kill him because after years of manic episodes, after years of violence, it was from him I heard the name of what was wrong with me and I was pained.

“I had an ugly experience in Enugu at Rit Hotel where I smashed everything. I wrecked the whole hotel and reduced everything that my family had to only what we were wearing.

“Two years later, we came to Asaba and I had another manic episode. This time, I wrecked the whole house. It was a habit, at some point, we didn’t have properties because it was only a matter of months before I wreck them.

“The doctor took me to FDAH and after some days, he came and gave me the verdict, the diagnosis. I didn’t like taking drugs so I flushed them down the toilet when they discharged me. I had another relapse and they put me back in the hospital,” she said.
