Onyeka Onwenu is a veteran singer and broadcaster from Nigeria who has commented on rumours that she had a secret marriage with the former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo on #WithChude, the ‘One Love’ singer also denied rumours that she slept with many big men in Nigeria while she was a star.
According to the author of “My Father’s Daughter”, she never slept with Obasanjo and did not have a secret marriage with him.
The accusation that I slept with Sunny Ade, Fela and Obasanjo was leveled against me
In fact, they claimed I secretly got married to Obasanjo.
“Why would I keep a secret if he approached me to marry him?”? The public announcement would have been amusing,” she concluded.
Onwenu also discussed turning down Fela Anikulapo Kuti for marriage after he approached her in the eighties.
Onwenu also talked about turning down Music legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti who approached her for marriage in the eighties.
It is said that Fela is a trickster. She replied that Fela understood she wouldn’t accept his marriage proposal.
The singer believes he wanted to thank her for supporting him while he was in prison.
In addition, she said that her marriage to her ex-husband would have almost killed her if not for her brother’s intervention.
As much as I don’t like discussing it, I’m going to elaborate because you brought it up and because I wrote about it.”
According to her, the marriage was wonderful, but when things happen to people, they change. He’s my husband, and I pray for him every day…”
