Barely six months ago, Vida Obenewah Nartey, joined her husband Eddie Nartey to grant an interview which focused on the life of the actor cum movie director as well as circumstances that preceded their marriage and how the journey had been.
She recalled being friends with him and exchanging pleasantries. She later flew outside the country and would always pick her phone to interact with Eddie Nartey, an action that was reciprocated by the actor.
“When we started talking, most of the time, anything he says, I don’t take it personally,” she said with her reason being “You know these industry people, we have a whole lot of perceptions about them from afar.” But the conversation continued.
“He started saying things I can relate to. I saw him as the male version of me. Everything he’s been through, everything he was telling me, it felt like ‘I know, feel what you’re going through’. When we started talking, I decided to give it a try. I didn’t put my heart in it at all because I didn’t want to be hurt; besides I’m not even staying in Ghana, and I don’t know what he is doing there.
“One time, he got me angry and I decided not to pick his call anymore. Regardless, I picked up the call and he said ‘you, I will marry you and I will shame you’,” an elated Vida recalled, noting that this was in 2017.
She described Eddie Nartey as amazing, one who gave her the fairytale proposal.
“He is amazing. He doesn’t have to try so hard to please me. Even when I’m angry, the little things that he will say, I’ll laugh like I’m not the one who is angry. He is super amazing. He sees the good in the bad,” she touted.
Sadly, their dream to stay together as husband and wife for long couldn’t materialize for long as Vida Obenewah Nartey has left the land of the living to join her ancestors.
