Aida Alisha popularly known as Olive got married at 21 years – Something she says was her biggest regret in life. Speaking to Lynn Ngugi in a candid interview – Aida opened up about her unknown marital woes, leaving a huge section of her fans shocked.
This is probably because the marriage didn’t last long and having had her wedding so hyped and aired on Cotizen TV’s Wedding show – fans back then couldn’t help but wonder why she would dump her husband – just to be single.
However thanks to the interview – turns out that despite all that glamour – Aida Alisha’s life behind closed doors was nothing but a nightmare. For the first time, Aida revealed her reasons for leaving her marriage saying it was toxic, had both physical and mental abuse from her husband; who by the way Youth pastor – but judging from his actions – one wouldn’t know this.
Speaking to Lynn Ngugi, the actress mentioned the abuse started 3 months after her lavish wedding – and being a 21 year old – fresh into marriage she chose to stick around not knowing things would get worse.
Well – it didn’t take that long until the physical abuse got ugly to a point he tried chocking her with his knees while still hitting her. Of course you’d wonder why she still stuck around after this – but remember she was just 21 years.
With everything around her losing meaning and the church chosing to side with preacher husband – Aida says her woes turned into a wake up call.
This is because for some reason – for the first time in her life, she found the strength to stand her ground and walked out of her marriage – not knowing whether it was a good move or not – but in her mind all she wanted was peace.
Fast forward – after deciding she was done, things on her end started opening up and this how she landed an educational visa to the states.
