I Had To Leave My Husband For Depending On Me – Onyeka Onwenu

Elegant Stallion, Onyeka Onwenu, has finally let the public into one of her hitherto guarded secrets – married life, indicating that it was not a bed of roses.
The renowned songstress, who turned 70 last week, in an interview with media personality, Kikilomo Atanda-Owo published today, February 3, said that she did not want her marriage to end.
Narrating her bitter experience, she told her host that staying in the marriage would have killed her, because the entire burden of the union, including financial, rested on her shoulders.
The mother of two children: Tijani Charles and Abraham, said: “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.”
