Ekene Umenwa, a Nigerian actress, is again making news for her public prayers and declarations to her husband.
Umenwa, known for her cinematic talents, has now found herself at the heart of another controversy involving a very intimate element of her life – her marriage.
The current buzz stems from a video that went popular for all the wrong reasons. Umenwa is seen in this video praying fervently for her spouse. She declares blessings and good fortune over his life with her palms on his head.
While such a gesture may appear nice to some, it has caused a significant criticism.
The public is asking whether such a private act should be televised so publicly. Critics believe that prayers, particularly personal ones, should be kept private rather than exhibited on social media for everyone to see.
One Nita_Daniels revealed that since they got married, they had been doing too much, “is it just me or a these couples doing too much?”
This backlash isn’t happening in isolation. It’s amplified by the backdrop of Umenwa’s already controversial wedding video that had previously set tongues wagging.
