Nollywood actor, Ibrahim Chatta and his wife, Salamatu Lafiaji, the daughter of former Kwara State governor, Senator Shaaba Lafiaji, has crashed irretrievably. It should be recalled that Chatta and Salamotu got married in April 2013, shortly after his first marriage crashed due to allegations of wife-beating which he emphatically denied. Ibrahim had maintained that his ex-wife, Olayinka Solomon, never stayed at home, or bothered to take care of their child. This, he said, was what drove him into the arms of Salamotu in the first place. However, the short-lived union has hit the rocks. Close family sources revealed that the couple, who made their home at Ikotun area of Lagos, started having problems shortly after their marriage due to class of differences. Salamotu, who comes from a wealthy home, according to sources, was not too comfortable with the living conditions in Chatta’s home, and this put a strain on the relationship until two weeks ago when she finally moved out of the house. Her mother had once visited the couple’s home and she was shattered at the poor living conditions of her daughter in the Lagos suburb. Interestingly, shortly after their marriage, Chatta had come out to debunk tales that he is a ‘gold digger,’ maintaining that he didn’t marry Salamotu because of her money. He blamed some journalists for peddling false stories about his person, stating that he may have humble beginnings but he would never sell his soul for money.

Some of my very good fans and friends can testify to the fact that I searched for well over two years for the right woman after the relationship between me and my baby mama turned sour, even on social media like Facebook. I am not a gold digger like some people wrote about me, I started life doing all sorts of menial jobs like hawking ice cream, selling meat, and even worked as a bus conductor. Those that knew me then can testify to the fact that I will never sell my conscience for money. I like to hold my head high,” he declared when the going was still smooth. All efforts to get Ibrahim’s comment on the development proved abortive as his phone rang repeatedly without response on Saturday. He also ignored text messages sent to him on the subject.
