Nollywood actress, Maureen Okpoko is presently coming back to life after a sudden crack in her marriage.

At the peak of her marital crisis few months back, Okpoko nearly relocated to England with her three children after a heart break, an accident that threatened her career, and lots more.

Okpoko while addressing the media days back  confirmed that she was hit by depression as a result from her marital problems leading to the separation from her husband

“I am just grateful to my family for standing by me; they helped me pulled through the whole journey,” she said.

“It was not an easy task, but they kept encouraging and never let me alone, till I was able to pick-up the pieces of my life back.

“It could have been terrible; who knows could have been a lunatic roaming the streets. Prayers and counselling also helped me a whole lot. I remain eternally grateful to God”.

On reconciliation with her ex-hubby, she closed a possibility.

“No too much water has passed under the bridge.”

Nominated for Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in 2016.

Okpoko is a native of Anambra State and of Nigerian and Jamaican descent.
