My wife and I no longer together – Ikechukwu speaks on marriage crash

Published

on

Nigerian rapper and actor, Ikechukwu Onunaku has confirmed that his marriage has ended.

Recall the former Mohits rapper tied the nuptial knot with his fiancée, Ella in May 2021.

But speaking in a recent interview with Daddy Freeze, Ikechukwu said he was now divorced.

He cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the desolation of his marriage, revealing that it was not due to infidelity. In Ikechukwu Onunaku’s words:

“My wife and I are no longer together. We separated due to irreconcilable differences. It wasn’t over infidelity. There were too much gaslighting, too much looking for faults, and too much listening to outsiders.

“I tried to save our marriage but I got to a point where I couldn’t tolerate my ex-wife’s excesses anymore and I showed her my other side and we couldn’t bear it.”

In the same interview with Daddy Freeze, Ikechukwu recounted his experience at the now-defunct record label, Mohits Records, owned by D’banj and Don Jazzy.

The rapper claimed D’banj used to cheat him out of his hard earned money by giving him stipends after making millions.

According to him, D’banj would pay him a meagre N50,000 for shows he was booked for, despite the actual fee being over N1.5 million. He said the ‘koko master’ used to treat him like he was doing him a favour.

However, he mentioned that D’banj later increased the payment to N150,000 after obtaining permission from his mother.

Rudeboy refutes Eedris Abdulkareem’s claims that 50 Cent assaulted P-Square

Published

Paul Okoye, aka Rudeboy of the P-Square, has refuted Eedris Abdulkareem’s claims that the group was assaulted by American rapper 50 Cent and his crew at a concert held at the Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos in 2004.

Abdulkareem claimed in a recent podcast interview that 50 Cent’s crew “flogged and chased” Nigerian artists, including P-Square, out of the backstage area at a concert.

He said he was the only Nigerian artist who refused to be intimidated out of the backstage.

Reacting during a recent Instagram live session with fans, Rudeboy said P-Square never attended the said show due to the inability of the organisers to reach an agreement with them on the booking fees.

He said Abdulkareem betrayed Nigerian artists by going behind them to accept “peanut” from the show organisers after they had already agreed on lucrative performance fees.

Rudeboy said: “P-Square did not go for the [50 Cent] concert. We had another concert. We were never billed. The reason was because they offered us peanuts, and we refused. But Eedris Abdulkareem accepted the peanut and was expecting VIP treatment. 50 Cent crew didn’t beat you well.

“Respect yourself. P-Square was never billed for that concert. Daddy Showkey, Tony Tetuila, everyone is telling you guys that Eedris is a big liar. We know he is a lair. We were never billed for that concert. We didn’t go.”
