I WAS ACCUSED OF HAVING AFFAIRS WITH OBASANJO, FELA, SUNNY OKOSUN – ONYEKA ONWENU

Musician, Actor, Author, Journalist, Broadcaster, the iconic Onyeka Onwenu, said she has been linked romantically with so many Nigerian celebrities, legendary musicians and politicians in the past, including but not limited to, former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Sunny Okosun, King Sunny, etc.

She said: “They even said President Obasanjo married me. Obasanjo asked me about the rumour and we had a good laugh about it. Somebody had asked me that question four times, and by the fifth time I was ready to fight him to leave me alone. If he was going to marry me, then we’d make it public, why would I hide it.

“A lot of times, I actually refused to address those questions.”

She revealed that of all the men she was linked with, only Fela showed interest in her and asked for her hand in marriage, but she declined the proposal.

“Fela was a trickster, he knew I would say no. He had a bet with someone, that person is Dede Mabiaku. He told Dede I was going to run.”

She said that the proposal from Fela proposal might have been his way of thanking her for standing up for him when he was charged with money laundering and jailed by the Federal Government under the military junta of General Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking about that particular episode and what led to the proposal, she said:

“I took a chance writing that widely read an article in his favour. I said why arrest him for the money he has earned? ‘He’s taking his band outside and he’s going to pay for their hotel, this is so wrong’ and some people said ‘go and arrest her’. It was Idiagbon who said ‘no, leave that woman alone, she loves Nigeria.’”
