“I honestly can’t remember the last time I celebrated my birthday, I like to keep my birthdays quiet or sometimes out of the country with my loved ones, but I decided to switch things up this year, and I absolutely loved it. Words can’t express how amazing it was; it exceeded my expectations. Thanks to my lovely team who were hands-on deck from start to finish. This will always be a birthday to remember. #chika@35.”
Ike was formerly married to Tony Eberiri but filed for divorce due to domestic violence in 2013.
