With the clock ticking and just seven days countdown to another wedding to another woman, fans and friends of popular Nollywood Yoruba actor, Ibrahim Chatta are praying for him to get it right this time.
It’s no longer new that barely two years after his marriage to the daughter of former governor of Kwara State, Shaaba Lafiaji, Salamatu, crashed, actor Ibrahim Chatta, will marry the third time to an actress called Laide aka Lizzie Berry.
The Nikah wedding comes up on October 1, 2016 at an undisclosed venue.

The wedding, it was learnt, was prompted by Lizzie Berry’s pregnancy for the actor.
Chatta, whose marriage to Salamatu was contracted in April 2013, was fraught with allegations including wife battery (his first wife, Olayinka Solomon, who also divorced him, accused him of this. She is said to be currently married to an Igbo businessman).According to sources, Chatta and Salamatu’s marital challenge sprouted as a result of what Salamatu and her family described as ‘lowly lifestyle’ the actor lived. Salamatu, who comes from a wealthy home, was not too comfortable with the living conditions in Chatta’s home at Ikotun, a Lagos suburb. Her mother had once visited the estranged couple’s home and was devastated at the poor living conditions of her daughter in the area which is said to be one of the dilapidated areas in the state. Salamatu was said to have moved out of the home. Ibrahim Chatta got married to Salamatu in 2013 and he was labelled a gold-digger. Denying the allegation, he said he loved Salmatu and did not marry her because of her father’s wealth.
He said, “Truthfully, Salamatu is a beautiful woman and she’s from a well-to-do family, but if I intended to marry for money, I wouldn’t have been available when she came along. “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.
