A mutual friend of Monalisa Chinda and Lanre Nzeribe, has written this note to set the records straight, on what caused Monalisa & Lanre to go their separate ways. Read below:
My name is Grace Amanda I am a friend to both Lanre Nzeribe and Monalisa Chinda I have decided to write my name in this story so that both parties know exactly where this is coming from.
I know both parties well, I have related with them well enough to know what they are capable of and I know almost everything that went down in that relationship and I can assure you this story is true. I know commentators would wonder why I bother writing this or how it’s my business what happened between those two but I think I owe it to humanity to speak because most of what you people know is either wrong or not completely true. Most of you have concluded that Lanre Nzeribe is the demon and villain while Monalisa Chinda is the victim in that relationship but I tell you the opposite is the case. I guess the saying is true, “appearance is deceptive”
Like I stated earlier I know both parties’ good and bad side so I won’t make any party look good or spread lies. Yes we all know Lanre Nzeribe to be a ladies man, a man every woman wants to be around but that doesn’t make him a criminal or different from the regular man out there. It’s a normal phenomenon to see men date a lot, but that does not mean I support this please. In fact as his friend it’s a daily counsel on my part to make him stop. However, when Lanre met Lisa he actually fell in love with the woman, she wasn’t a joke or conquest forhim. He was dedicated to her infact the dedication was so great he allowed her to move in with him where he lives. His commitment to her was admirable infact she became the envy of all her friends and colleagues because they could not understand what made her different and special that she should be treated like a queen, let’s not forget that there’s been other women before her, but he cut down on all that excesses. I guess that’s what happens when a man genuinely falls in love. This act of love was shown by the gifts he showered her with, the numerous travels abroad for holidays, especially visits to his Washington home; the frequent outings they had and most of all, thebusiness venture that brought about monalisa magazine.
When this love affair started so many people warned Lanre about Lisa me inclusive, they told him to just walk away, all her numerous escapades that he read online were enough for him to walk away but he didn’t, I mean how would he? Dude was in love. He defended her, fought her battles like a knight in shining armour and trust me the battles he had to fight were numerous. She never knew lack, there was nothing she asked of him she didn’t get instantly even Lisa have been seen to testify to this. That misconception of Lanre going after Lisa for her money is not only wrong but laughable, because in honesty she didn’t have that much. Even the company they both ran together,the monies that came in were spent by her not him. Whenever he travelled abroad he shopped for her; dresses, shoes, bags name it. A dream life most women will die to have, monalisa had it on a platter of gold. Her only duty was to look beautiful and be a good girlfriend but just like other things in her life that was also a difficult task for her to carry out. I begin to wonder if the stories she told about her ex husband was even true.
Her insatiable desire for the good life on a fast lane will never make Lisa sit down and settle down. Her greed for fancy things, small boys, married men and money will never make Lisa stay faithful. She would do anything to stay relevant and I mean ANYTHING. This is not the first time Lanre and Lisa have parted ways and the problem has always been about the Nollywood lifestyle she was living. Her frequent travels to Abuja or port Harcourt to either visit one government official or the other or to sleep with someone else’s husband for money, was a major issue in that relationship. Money that Lanre could give her without difficulty. There was even an incident in Abuja which happened of recent where Lisa was embarrassed at the airport by the wife of the man whom she had been sneaking into Abuja to see regularly, imagine the shame even for us her friends.
The struggle to stay classy went further when Lisa lied to Lanre sometime in February about a business she had to attend to in London. Lanre had his doubt and decided to hire a private investigator who came back with evidence of her escapade while in London. Lisa was in a hotel in London sleeping with a white man, and this was supposed to be a business trip o. This broke Lanre into pieces he couldn’t trust her any longer. When she returned to Nigeria from her supposed “business” Lanre confronted her and as usual she lied about everything. “Please note that telling lies is a calling for Lisa, it comes to her naturally. *Okay back to the story* when she wouldn’t confess Lanre showed her the evidence of her escapade and she broke down and begged for forgiveness, friends interceded on her behalf and again he forgave her.
Lanre felt if she needed money that badly he could get her to stay away from that lifestyle by opening a business for her. First he opened a beauty product business for her she couldn’t even make that work, then he decided to do the magazine business for her to keep her busy and at the same time make money the right way. Of course she was shocked he was willingly to invest that much money on her and she admitted that she knew nothing about publishing but he told her she would learn on the job and even made arrangements for her to study in America; a course in publishing and business. But like they say ‘a leopard will never change its spot’. Lisa didn’t like hard work, she preferred easy money, one where she opens her leg and get money speedily. Seeing that the magazine venture was a difficult task for her, she was bent on finding a way out both from the business and the relationship as she had once told a staff that Lanre was blocking her ways from getting private jets from governors that wanted to have an affair with her. In order to make this happen she would pick on every little thing to make her and Lanre quarrel so that she can hold onto it and move on. She accused virtually the whole monalisa magazine female staffs of wanting to sleep with Lanre. The woman’s insecurities are overwhelming.
Finally, she moved out of his house without him knowing. He came back from America and found out that she had packed all of her stuffs out of his house. And that was the beginning of the end.
Now why am I upset? I am upset because she’s giving people a different version of what really happened but we the close people around them know exactly the truth. To think Lisa Chinda is a divorcee and a mother of one, one would think she would have some iota of respect for herself and her kid and keep her legs closed but instead since after the break up she’s been seen clubbing at different clubs; hanging out at the beach with people she can give birth to and acting like a young woman that she is not. The same colleagues she has severally run down in front of myself and Lanre, all of a sudden they’re now her best friends?; stories of her sleeping with a big shot Lagos official government, a married man for that matter,here in Lagos is spreading round as well.Monalisa Chinda what happened to you? How did you become like this?Or have you always been this way but your sins are now catching up with you? Your beauty will not last long, at 41 you are still acting like a child, what a shame. To think I believed in you and thought all that church maps were for real, now I know better
Dear LisaChinda, quit with the lies and fake stories you are spreading around, I have more to say and so do others, but there’s no need washing our dirty linen online.
