Monalisa Chinda, husband in first post-wedding outing

Nollywood star actress, Monalisa Chinda, and her husband, Tonye Coker, were spotted in public for the first time on Saturday, since they tied the knots in September.

The couple who were wedded at a glamorous ceremony in Santorini, Greece, was one of the participants at the Delightsome Land School Rip The Runway event, which held in Victoria Island, Lagos.

Monalisa and media personality, Manny of Cool FM, were some of the stars that partook in the catwalk.

As the beautiful mother-of-one strutted the runway, her husband was on the one hand available to cheer and spur his famous wife on.

The couple could be seen stealing glances at each other.

dsc_0370_filteredWhen PREMIUM TIMES approached the 41-year-old actress and her beau for an interview they politely turned down the request. But, Monalisa opted to speak about her 2017 career plans instead.

She said, “I wish to shoot more films and put in more work into my TV show, You and I with Monalisa. I intend to take my craft and career to the next level in the New Year.”

The event is the brainchild of the proprietress of the school, Tayo Olarewaju, who together with her team of teachers is running an establishment where children are able to take their first steps towards education in the world.

Not a few may be aware that Monalisa and her hubby became family friends when she was just 14. In fact, the light-skinned actress had early in the year disclosed that her spouse’s younger sister was her childhood best friend.

The lovebirds had for several years lost contact. They rekindled their romance in November 2015.Monalisa was previously married to Dejo Richards but they parted ways in 2009. The union produced a daughter. Richards had remarried on January 22, 2011 at the Ikoyi Registry, Lagos. Monalisa on the other hand tied the knots seven years after her first marriage packed up.
