August 08, (THEWILL) – Veteran singer, Onyeka Onwenu, has refuted claims that she had a secret marriage with former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Onwenu made this known during an interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, saying that the accusation that she slept with Obasanjo and had a secret marriage with the former President is false.
According to her, while growing up, she was accused of sleeping with many big men in Nigeria.
She said: “I was accused of sleeping with Sunny Ade, Fela and Obasanjo.
“They even went to the extent of saying I got married to Obasanjo secretly. If he approached me to marry him, why would I keep it a secret? We would have made it public; so that was funny.”
Onwenu also added that her marriage to her ex-husband nearly killed her if not for her brother who saved her.
