Ten years after divorce, Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has revealed why she ventured into fitness and excess as a lifestyle.
The award winning actress known for her role in popular soap opera ‘Do Good’, in 2011 divorced her British husband, Roderick James Nuttal, the Managing Director of Ledrop Nigeria Ltd.
Her penchant for fitness and workout grew just after the news of divorce became a matter of public discuss.
She has an Instagram page and a DVD where she tutored her fans on how to be ‘fit forever.’
She told Arise Tv that the exercise started 15 years back when she was struggling with a situation.
THE WHISTLER understands that during the period she mentioned, the actress was still in the marriage relationship with Nuthal.
“It was just 15 years ago, and I just decided to start exercising, but I was in a bad place personally. So I found exercising,” she told Arise Tv.
She continued, “Exercise helped me, and I was doing it so much, I went all the way to the left when I was so skinny, people would walk pass me in the mall and they wouldn’t recognize me because I didn’t see it.
“I was just dealing with stuff and I poured all my anger and strength into the exercise, and then I decided, okay let me put it up on my Instagram page, hopefully, people would see it, maybe someone is exercising like me.”
Kate and Nuttal got married in 1999, six years after she made her debut in the Nollywood industry in 1993 in a movie, ‘When The Sun Sets.’
But her marriage with her husband was marred with accusation of infidelity on both sides.
She reportedly accused her husband of having an affair with his secretary, while she was also accused of having romance with big names in the Nigerian political space.
Meanwhile on the sidelines of the interview, the actress also spoke about the #EndSARS protest.
According to her, Nigerian security agencies have not learnt their lessons from the nationwide protest against police brutality and bad governance.
Hanshaw said, “We saw it on Wednesday, nothing had changed, no change literally, I mean they were already prepared to start a war, supposedly it was to keep miscreant away, that’s okay but then we saw the videos, we saw the attack on the journalist, we saw the Uber driver, we saw the guy on the green jumpsuit that was manhandled.
“There was no need for that. But nothing has changed, no apology, no undertakings of responsibilities, is just people who are somewhat afraid of the intellectual thought of young people. People who want a better nation, because we all do.
“You cannot be just a few people living ride in rough short over the people. It’s for all of us, it’s for our children because we are not going to be here forever. it’s for all of us, it’s for our image.”
