Gideon Okeke eyes actress Tracee Ross amid separation from wife

Nollywood actor Gideon Okeke has identified American actress Tracee Ross as his ‘spec.’

The actor, who recently confirmed separation from his marriage to Chidera, took to his Instagram page on Sunday to shower praises on Tracee.

He said: “Of all the girls in Hollywood. This here is My Spec.

“There’s just something I find savvy about the slightly advanced lady, and it doesn’t always come with age. It comes in Substance, Content. It’s that “put together appeal” that I find so darn SEXY!

“But the boys would always taunt Me for having “Mummy issues”… but naaa. Y’see…I’m a WHALE. I only swim in the DEEP DARK. You gotta have that depth, to contain Me. You gotta be the Ocean.”

The post has generated loads of talking points as commentators believe it was directed at Chidera.

Many stated that the “You gotta have that depth to contain Me” phrase was Okeke’s veiled response to why he left his marriage.
