Onyeka Onwenu: ‘I really didn’t want my marriage to end’

Legendary Nigerian songwriter and singer, Onyeka Onwenu has revealed some of her past marital issues and what led to her divorce.

In a recent chat with Kikelomo Atanda-Owo on her “Real Talk with Kike” show, Onyeka said she tried her best to make her marriage work, but it could have killed her if she had not ended it.

“I went through it. It was difficult because I really didn’t want my marriage to end but I could not take it anymore. It would have killed me. I always say and that is the truth,” she said.

She had earlier talked about her marriage in an interview with Chude Jideonwo on his #withchude show, where the veteran musician said she doesn’t like talking about her marriage, but it was incredible while it lasted.

According to the septuagenarian, she singlehandedly trained her children without support from her former husband.

She told Kikelomo that she had to leave the marriage as “it was not good for the children to live in that kind of environment where the mother is depressed, the mother is carrying the weight of the whole family. I raised my children from kindergarten to Masters’ degree.”

Onyekaba added that she is not an advocate of divorce and advised men to live up to their responsibility saying, “any man who has children, has family and decides not taking care of them, you have questions to answer from God, that means you are irresponsible.”

The “One Love” crooner recently released her book ‘My Father’s Daughter’ which highlights her successful music career and would be adapted into an exciting mini-TV series that would feature some of Nollywood crème de la crème.
