“My marriage would have killed me, I raised my children from kindergarten to master’s degree, my husband didn’t foot any bill” – Onyeka Onwenu speaks
Veteran entertainer, Onyeka Onwenu has spilt a bit about her past married life and how she catered for her children alone.
The mother of two in an interview with media personality, Kikilomo Atanda-Owo hinted at why her marriage crashed.
She further revealed that she didn’t want her marriage to end, but couldn’t take it any longer as it could have killed her if she didn’t quit.
In her words:
“I went through it, it was difficult because I really didn’t want my marriage to end but I couldn’t take it anymore, it would have killed me. I always say that that is the truth and 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 master’s degree. My husband didn’t pay school fees for one day, didn’t buy clothes, didn’t pay for holidays, didn’t give me housekeeping money but he was a nice and kind and generous man and basically, there was control where if you didn’t do the things he wanted, ‘well I’m not going to help you, I’m not going to give you money and I would like to say this to Nigerians, any man who has children, has a family and decides not to take care of them, you’ll have to answer to God.”
